its one of the most highly anticipated rpgs for xbox, and it will be on xbl. check out the game profile under project ego on the main xba page.

I don't think the name change is official yet. I think Project Ego sounds wicked. Unless they can make the word "Fable" look nasty, I would stick with Fable.

BTW, I was the first one to bring this story to XBA forums.

i think project ego is a good name too! sorry for posting this after u had, but i had actual proof that it might be called fable..., and just to clear it up, it said it was COPYRIGHT PENDING so, they are definitely considering this name if they have tried to copyright it!

I agree with you 100%. The developers should stick with that name. Fable doesnt sound right.

yes but if it was called fable from the very beginning, and then they decided to change it to project ego, you would say that fable sounds better because you will have been associating the game with the name fable so calling it anything else would sound strange.

they should have changed the name earlier, even though it still has a about just under a year left in development.

From www.dictionary.com

fa·ble Pronunciation Key (fbl)
2. A story about legendary persons and exploits.


Well, that sounds about right to me. I think its a good choice, even though I'm so used to calling it Project Ego.

Project-Ego was never its name. You guys don't know what your talking about.

well stop the bickering it was announced at E02 as Fable.
new screenshots also.
by the way, who cares what the name is going to be. when i first heard fable, i didnt like it, i even posted here about it. but ya know what it will still be a great game.
Halo still would have been great whether or not it was called Halo.

that's what i thought when "Dolphin" was renamed to Gamecube. the name grew on me, and I'm sure fable will grow on you to (read:suck it up, moron)

:D :D

Fable is a great name. Goes perfect with the game. What the heck is Project Ego for a name? Sounds dumb. Only military games should have names with the word project in it. Project Gotham Racing is also a retarded name. Why not just call it Gotham Racing?

Fable was anounced as the "name in progress" of project ego a long time ago like keltiks said. Project Ego is just the Projects name. I think it is dumb how people think they should stick with project ego. Fable is a name that relates to the game and sounds cool.

Halo is not exactly the name of a devil king either you guys. In fact it is a ring that floats over an angels head. Do you hate the name halo now? Does it make the game sounds girly and innocent?

The word fable is a word used to describe a short story with a moral usually around 300 words. Aesops fables are some hugely famous ones. He came up with "beast fables", fables with talking animals as the main characters.
