Lionhead's Peter Molyneux has been speaking about the Kinect device for the Xbox 360, which many claim needs a core game behind it, but Molyneux suggests that it's the core that needs Kinect more than anyone else.
During an interview with at GDC 2012, Molyneux said that core gamers need new experiences more than anyone else, and if the industry isn't careful it's going to bore core gamers to death.
"Those are the people that need new experiences more than anyone else. I get crazy passionate about this - if we're not careful, we're going to bore our core gamers to death. How much bigger can our explosions get to entertain them?"
"We're doing the same thing that Hollywood's doing with action movies. We're inventing a formula, and we're repeating it over and over again, and we're grabbing every penny from our consumers and not bothering to think about something different. And they're the people that need something different.
"They're our fans, and this is their hobby, man! We can't be lazy! We can't back away from creative inventiveness now, just because it costs a bit more money. Now's the time to double down on that.
"Is Call of Duty really it? Is that all this industry really is? If it is, then you should just shift me off to the mental asylum now."
Lionhead are currently working on XBLA exclusive Fable Heroes, along with Fable: The Journey, which will feature Kinect support. Are you bored of Call of Duty like Molyneux claims you could be?
