don't know if its a screw up or what

but you may want to act fast before MS realises,LOL

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Fable-III/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d8024d5308d6?noSplash=1

you should go to the fable III page and select pay with Microsoft points and it should be free....i had to get a months gold for it to appear for otherwise it was the ridiculous price of £29.99/3600 points

the game is 5.61 gig,downloading now

Do you select the download to 360 option and then it gives you the pay with points option?

I am hearing its different for certain people,the site i posted was the US site,so i got a pop up when i went on that page that is to my country with all the details..i would've thought it would be when you select Fable III Full Game(second one down)from that page...just make sure you don't pay the bullshit price they were selling it for

some people are also saying its not just points but its priced as free..and some people are getting the same comment as Bull got

However,People on the Eurogamer comments are still saying its working(3 minutes ago last comment)..Kotaku i have no idea as i have no idea how their comments work,they are all over the place,LOL

you are making sure it says zero points value right?(i don't want you to pay anything)

Ah, I didn't do the "use MS points" option.  Once I did that, I got it fine.

Since I can't recall MS making a screw up like this for an XBLA Game on Demand title, I'm thinking this has got to be some kind of marketing promo in a lead up to E3.

What appeared to be a glitch earlier this morning is now intentional: Fable III is completely free on Xbox Live (probably to promote the original game's HD re-release later this year). Just go to the title in the On Demand section of the Marketplace and you'll find it there for download. The game is 5.61 GB.

OK, so the web page says ' Gold Exclusive Price $19.99' then below it $19.99 again, but when you checkout it is free.  huh.

Yep, for a promo it's kind of cryptic and less than ideal on account that someone paying via ccard could end up paying full price. Of course no one here has tried a ccard purchase so maybe that ends up being free too. I wonder if they set it up the way it was to generate buzz amongst core gamers and ensure they jump on it. Worked for me - I had the game downloading within minutes. slywink

Having never played it, all I know is that's it's not supposed to be as good as the 1st 2, which is why I never bothered buying it.

Yeah, I was just going to post something about the new free games for XBL Gold members as noted on the GT front page. Sadly the first two are games I already have. I guess I could trade in the retail discs for some Gamestop credit.

I haven't played Assassins Creed II, so I'm quite happy with the 1st 2 choices. slywink

[Edit] BTW does Fable 3 not have one of the poorest intros in a videogame yet?  Good God that was one one drab and annoying start.

Yep..Halo 3 won't be a download for me, as I've pretty much burned out all the game play I can get from it. I'm currently on my 4th playthru of it which I'm playing co-op with my daughter. smile

Oh and the story hit its peak for me in AC2,it got massively interesting with the Pieces of Eden and the puzzles etc...but went downhill from there IMO
