The question in the title says it all... Can I play Fable: The Journey without the Kinect? I have done some searching for it, but could not find any creditable sources. Can anyone confirm this?

Kinect is required for Fable: The Journey.

This info is on the page for the game - look just to the right of the ESRB rating.

Major Nelson's blog entry for the demo also notes that you'll need the Kinect sensor to play.

Contrast this with the page for Mass Effect 3 which has the official branding for "Better with the Kinect Sensor" (just underneath the tabs at the top of the page, in white text on purple).

aww durrrrr! Thank you for pointing that out. (didn't see that prior to when looking there) I almost want to vote this a close. – Zero Stack Oct 9 '12 at 19:13
Thanks for the edit as well, that clears that up for me. – Zero Stack Oct 9 '12 at 19:19
@Foxtrot, eh, no biggie :) Kinect-required games also seem to always come in purple cases, as opposed to the green of a normal Xbox 360 game. I'm pretty sure that's intentional, to distinguish them. – agent86 Oct 9 '12 at 19:20
