Fable: The Lost Chapters coming to Xbox

Looks like Microsoft and Lionhead Studios are going to release Fable: The Lost Chapters for the Xbox as well as the PC as originally planned. I've seen release dates for the Xbox version ranging from September to late fall.

This is all a good thing I suppose as Fable is supposed to be one of the best RPGs for the Xbox, and it'll be good to have the game Lionhead originally promised years ago.

I just want to know if they're going to fix the God-aweful save system from the original Xbox release. "Oh look, you've played for 3 hours and gotten a few quests done, but because we only do hero saves in this game all your quest progress is lost!" Real great way to give the casual player who does more than play games for 15 hours a day a sense of accomplishment over a short play period.

I'll give it a rent, but if it's still crap like the original I'll just be heading back to the amazing KotOR series or Jade Empire.
