This was exactly the kind of thing we always thought XBLA would be great for. As long as it worked well and there was a good reason for it. Oh, and it didn't require you to own or play both.
When we found out what it was – a suite of gambling games that let you earn money that could be used in the world of Fable II – we cheered even louder. What a great idea, giving you the ability to generate a real in game resource completely out of the game, instead of forcing you to take time out of your adventures to sit in a virtual casino and play some kind of magical Blackjack."
