Baldielocks Peter Molyeux, creator of the Fable franchise who recently left Lionhead, says he isn’t too sure about Microsoft’s new tech, SmartGlass, even though it seems pretty impressive.

“The thing about the SmartGlass is that the tablet is a thing that you have with you all the time,” he told IGN. “Now, in that sense, I understand completely as a consumer and I’m excited to see what these guys do with it,” he said. “But I do have a problem with it.

“I now have a screen in front of me on my lap and a screen up on the wall that I’m looking at. Which one should I be looking at? Should I be looking up at the big screen and down, or at my lap and up? Should I be checking down on my lap every few seconds? What’s going to incentivize me to move my eyes from the wall to my lap?”

However, Molyneux says he is actually a little excited about this tech.

“In a way, part of me is excited by this,” he said. “But part of me is worried that this is a bit of tech which us tech boys get really excited about, and until I see some really great uses of that SmartGlass or the Wii U GamePad, the jury is out for me to be honest with you

“The real use for me is how it’s used as part of the entertainment experience, and then that divided attention that you’re demanding of a player is going to be really challenging to balance well.”
