Not sure if this is a screw up or microsoft is going to start offering games for free but download it while you can!

Doesn't seem to be free on Xbox.com, and I can't be bothered to turn on my console. Wow, I'm lazy. I'm also strangely okay with that realization.

Confirmed. $0.00 is the price I feel comfortable paying for this game.

Can confirm. Gotta get it off your 360

It is for gold members

Neat. Too bad I already own Fable 3. Still can't beat free.

#7 Posted by ottoman673 (541 posts) -

Can also confirm. Just started the download now.

100% confirmed. FREE GAME.

Is this legit or a pricing error?

Who cares? It's free!

Microsoft is too busy spying on Sony and paying off journalists to notice.

#13 Posted by BrockSampson (299 posts) -

Free for me as well.

And here I was about to get up and turn on my 360 and connect it to the internet for the first time in months. Now that there's a possibility that my efforts may go to waste, I don't want to.

I'm not sure if this is because I don't care about Fable 3 or if I just have way too many games.

Well alright. I may check it out since I now know. Really not itching to play Fable III, though, which is kind of a bummer considering how much I liked the prior games in the series.

@believer258: I am also a silver member, and can confirm that it is not free for me. $19.99 here.

Also, it's been so long since I turned on my 360 that I had to figure out which I unplugged the 360 for to plug in. Which was my Ouya I got back mid April. Whoops.

I'm just curious. I got Fable 2 for free a long time ago with a pricing error, and just recently Assassin's Creed 3 was mistakenly listed as free on the Chinese marketplace (managed to nab that with a dummy Chinese account). I was wondering if this is the same kinda thing, or if it's an actual promotion.

#19 Edited by Green_Incarnate (1789 posts) -

Meh, my 360 is not hooked up.

#20 Edited by laserguy (448 posts) -

Well look at that, and here i was ready to cancel sub.

#21 Posted by Hunter5024 (5840 posts) -

Fable 3 is pretty lame guys. Just saying.

#22 Posted by Demoskinos (15032 posts) -

Fable 3 is awful. Use that bandwidth to download some porn or cat pictures or well... anything besides Fable III.

#23 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2509 posts) -

Confirmed the purchase even though I already own a physical copy of the game. (Which I also got for free. Huh)

It's an alright game for those who haven't played it. Worth it for free but if you can't get it for whatever reason it's nothing to bum yourself out over.

Yep. I even went through the trouble of entering one of my many 48 hour codes to see if that would work, but no go--you need a legit gold account. Whatever, I'm playin' Rock Band 2 now! This worked out wonderfully! It's also a mildly humorous coincidence since Fable III and Rock Band 3 were released on the same day way back when. I only know this because I bought RB3 at midnight and was one of only a few out of a large crowd that showed up for Rock Band instead of Fable. I feel like I made the right choice.

@starfoxa: I would absolutely love to see Assassin's Creed 3 dubbed into Mandarin.

#26 Posted by Druminator (1678 posts) -

Could be something they're announcing at E3? Maybe free games will be a thing?

#27 Posted by StarFoxA (5161 posts) -

@brackynews: It was actually in English! I played through the whole game, entire thing worked. Let me play online multiplayer too.

That's nice. My gold account hasn't run out yet, but..

that's right, I won't even play Fable III for free. Actually someone would have to pay me. I have plenty of other awesome games and plenty of other things to do with my time.

This. If you have PS+, play XCOM instead. It's a better free game.

Cheap as free!

Now it's the first episode of The Walking Dead that's available for free.

porn >>> Fable 3.

#35 Posted by golguin (3977 posts) -

I can confirm Fable 3 is free. Just started downloading it. Now the question is should I actually play it?

#36 Posted by MAN_FLANNEL (2462 posts) -

I liked Fable 2. Might as well try 3.

#37 Posted by Mcfart (1664 posts) -

fable 3 is a decent game. though i suggest co op, since everything's more fun with jolly cooperation

#38 Posted by Synthballs (2193 posts) -

Ah, shame it's for Gold users only.

I had a copy of Fable III but a mate stole it. This would've been a good replacement.

#39 Posted by MildMolasses (3225 posts) -

I've already played this on pic and didn't think much of it, but I will always take free.

If this is an error, the same thing happened with fable II as well

#40 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7617 posts) -

I'd suggest that this was supposed to go up later today to hype up Fable 4.. but Fable 3 was pretty awful, so using that to pull people into the sequel would be a pretty bad move.

The anti-Microsoft posts from some are getting kinda grating though. Really guys, I thought we were above this kind of behaviour here, let's not become Reddit.

#41 Edited by Nilazz (613 posts) -

Still a shitty game.

#42 Edited by JoeyRavn (4998 posts) -

My first reaction was "HOLY SHIT I HAVE TO GET IT". Then I remembered that I bought Fable III on PC and never played it. I even have Fable II for 360 and never played it...

I need to start playing the games I buy.

#43 Edited by Benny (1953 posts) -

@wintersnowblind: I love the idea that Microsoft were making it free to hype fable 4. They would announce 4 on stage with a CG trailer and then "and TODAY, you can download fable...3 for free."

*murmuring in audience*

#44 Edited by isomeri (1329 posts) -

Sweet deal! I was able to pick it up on my phone. Seems like an obvious marketing push for Fable 3 like many others already noted, but I don't care. Free games are free.

#45 Edited by Nights (615 posts) -

I saw this and then quickly realized that I have no desire to play Fable III, even for the low price of $0.00. Oh well, I'm sure a lot of people will dig this.

#46 Posted by kagato (945 posts) -

Fable III was fine, just not anywhere near as good as it should have been, that whole point of no return thing was horrific but as long as you know about it going in you are probably going to be okay. Also, the game is free damn it, its enjoyable and im sure is worth the tiny bit of money you had to spend on electricity downloading it.

#47 Posted by EvilNiGHTS (1093 posts) -

I'm sure the concept of shitty games becoming decidedly less shitty when you get them for free isn't wasted on some of us.

#48 Posted by Jeffsekai (7044 posts) -

still free, if you are on xbox dot com just pick the pay my points option and its still free.

#49 Edited by Legion_ (1436 posts) -

Bought the collector's edition when it came out. Man that game is disappointing. On a unrelated note, I just started downloading Kingdoms of Amalur for free on my PS Tripple (remember when it was hip to say that), and I'm looking forward to finally trying it out. 0$ was a price I felt comfortable with.

#50 Edited by Carlos1408 (1528 posts) -

Awesome just downloading it now for free too on my Xbox. I've already completed it once, but I guess I could be evil this time.
