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.

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

Is this legit or a pricing error?

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

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.

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

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.

@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.

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.

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

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.

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.

@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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
