One of Microsoft's big Xbox 360 games for this year is Lionhead's Fable 2. The game is due for release this October, but can gamers expect a demo before that date? According to Peter Molyneux, the answer's no.

When we asked Peter Molyneux at E3 if Lionhead has any plans for a demo he wasn't keen on the idea.

"No. I hate demos. What either happens, is you either make a demo that people think is too short or, you know, is too confusing," said Molyneux. "There are a million reasons why they go wrong, very few reasons why they go right. What was the last great demo that you played and then went out and bought the game?"

So there you have it. It doesn't look like we'll be getting a demo for Fable 2, so you'll just have to make do with the pub games being released on Xbox LIVE Arcade.
