Now, I know it is supposed to be an X-Box exclusive, but Halo was suposed to be too. Anyone dug up anything definitive about it coming to PC? Because if not, I may have to bend to Bill Gates and buy his behemoth...

Remember, Micro$oft doesn't have $ony's need to keep all the good games on that one platform, so I'd say there's a chance it might get PC'd.
However, from what I've seen and heard, it seems to be a fairly console-oriented game, so it is uncertain if the marketing wizards will decide it could make s%#tloads of money on the PC...

It is microsoft. I don't think they have a single good game that has stayed an x-box exclusive. KOTOR came to PC, Halocame to PC, Splinter Cell came to everything... microsoft will probably put Fable out for PC too.

Yeah, well, I'm still waiting for Project Gotham Racing. :)
Why is it that all the best arcade racers are exclusive on the consoles?

Lionhead's releasing it on PC as Fable: The Lost Chapters. It contains about 30% more content that was cut out of the X-Box release.

By the way, does anyone else think that Fable discriminates against ranged attacks and thieves? I wanted to make my first character an archer, but I was too unskilled with the bow and ended up as a burly swordsman. After playing through the game once and getting the feel of archery, I made a sort of an assassin (archer/thief). Those narrow, winding paths really aren't conducive to ranged attacks, and if you attack a group of guys you usually can't kill more than one or two before they get within melee range and start hacking the crap out of you.

I like the XBox->PC trend.

They tend to catch most of the bugs and have it fixed for the initial PC version... :P

So I've heard.

I wonder how they're going to handle fishing on the PC release... it's hard enough with vibration, and almost impossible without it. At the higher levels later in the game I usually just closed my eyes while fishing because I couldn't react quickly enough to the changing color on the tension-meter.
