Former Lionhead boss and creator of the Xbox-exclusive role-playing series Fable has spoken out in Microsoft's defense, saying that the internet's criticism of the Xbox One is unwarranted.
Speaking to TechRadar, Molyneux explained:
It's quite an unfair thought that Microsoft are trying to control our gaming, they're trying to force us to be online all the time. [People] didn't really think that through. Microsoft did the reversal and we should have all turned round and said 'fantastic, you've really listened to what we've said.' But you have to over-correct to get back on line.
I know Microsoft, I know they were only doing things because they thought they were long-reaching and long-thinking. But the world we live in now is that we have to realize, especially if you're a big corporation, if you make one step wrong, the world will leap on you, and unfairly, very unfairly, they will judge you.
