Fable 3 currently free to Xbox Live Gold members

I took advantage of this as soon as I saw it. You know, just in case it is a mistake. Hopefully it stays free, hopefully they announce more games will be for free at E3.

You don't have to download it via Xbox.com as its also available through Xbox dash direct.

ho hum. free games is good, free fable 3 is good, but I've completed it and all the achievements, so have no reason to get it, even for free.

I just got it through the dash and didn't have to change the payment option, it was free by default.

Hopefully it works and I'll trade-in my physical copy. Then hopefully I'll get to playing it and get some of my weapons/costumes/etc. back from whoever currently has 'em.

Shit...I aswell just saw this and was like "OH SHIT! FREE GAME! MORE GAMERSCORE!" (I got quite a bit on my old XBL user, but then I re-made my user when I got a new Xbox), so I ran to Xbox.com and tried logging in.
Didn't work because I had to fix some code or something.
I cried for a while and just went to the XBL Marketplace.

Free game? Yes, please!

Aaaaand done. :D

Oh, I hope that's not MS's "big" 360 announcement. :shock:

EDIT: Maybe this is the start of MS's answer to PlayStation Plus? That would be way cool!

Woohoo, I just finished Halo 4 and was looking for another game to play! Save's me a trip to the local game shop.

Isn't this something to do with their 'free to play' tests?

When I looked at Fable 3 it was £29.99. Is there anywhere specific that I should be looking for this on?

Looks like they've either fixed the glitch, or it went live before an announcement.

I think it's still there guys (it is for me at least). You just need to click on 'use Microsoft points' when it asks for payment.

I just followed this method and sure enough it said free. If I get charged £29.99 though i hold Aoife personally responsible. And I had better like the game or you will be held double responsible
