I suppose you could say I have a stormy relationship with Peter Molyneux. On the one hand, he has been behind some of my favourite games of yore like Populous, Fable (the first one) and the Black and White games. On the other hand, he has been known to talk a fair bit of nonsense. I genuinely admire his enthusiasm and creativity, but in the past that has gotten the better of him
Recently, however, he’s said something genuinely insightful – Games consoles should be about playing great games and not about Facebook.
It’s gotten to the point now in this crazy modern world where even people’s toasters are tweeting. We Don’t need yet another device designed around social media. Maybe I’m just no longer hip with the kids, but I agree with Peter – surely games consoles should be built for playing games, not for posting on facebook, right?
