Who's dumb enough to fall for this?

Omg it's downloading! This is so awesome!!

Note to people:

Use that link once you sign in, otherwise they will charge you standard fee.

Note that there is another free game on XBL, though the name escapes me. It's a simple 2D side-scroller for those interested. Flow is also free on PSN while we're at it.

I love this! I needed an RPG and had nothing to play for my consoles.

darthv723697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

so when i get home i will dl it. I liked the free episode they offered before and was going to get the full game at some point. Now that point is now.

Excellent. (bill & ted style)

edit: it has to be the full game. The first ep was only 1+ gb. This one is 6.6gb.

-Alpha3697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

Edit: MS confirmed this to be fake, sorry guys

T9X693697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

Honestly I think he's confused. When I downloaded it, it specifically says "Fable 2 FULL Game". When I downloaded the first episode months ago, it said Fable 2 episode one. Even the description for Fable 2 was the full game, on the episodes downloads, it says download episode one now and continue playing to unlock more episodes for purchase, or something like that.

EDIT: Also, episode 1 is only a 1-2GB download, not 7GB.

frostypants3697d ago

I'm on this like white on rice, but...WTF? Why is it free?

-Alpha3697d ago

MS's twitter is saying it's only Episode 1. Others are saying they are collecting achievements and getting past episode 1. MS may be trying to persuade people to cancel their downloads, so I'm going to stick in and see what happens. Has to be a mistake that they are trying to cover up.

Takoulya3697d ago

Works. This is Microsoft's strong point. Marketing. More people will get Fable 2 and will be wanting some more. Fable 3 comes out and gets killer sales. No matter how much you hate Microsoft, you have to admit that they have great advertising schemes.

nation1203697d ago

u download the full game but only get to play the first chapter....u gotta pay to play the this is microsoft they never give out anything for free.

darthv723697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

can you verify this? I know that when they offered up episode 1 it wasnt a full 6.6gb download. Did you get this game and play up to where ep 1 would end and have it show you something to the extent that in order to play you had to pay?

Really, I am curious now.

I went back through my purchase history to when I got the free episode and it shows full game then too but it really amounted to around 2gb. Interesting...........

theEx1Le3697d ago

It is the full game, my completed save file works with this so its not just an episode!

Nevers3697d ago

I just downloaded this (bought this) about 1month ago... I had bought it originally when it came out but then had a hankering for it... and $20 seemed like a deal... now I'm kicking myself.

t(-.-t) m$ (from me)

\(^o^)/ m$ (for others)

...Kix self again...

ProjectVulcan3697d ago

Yup worked fine with my old save. First it didnt apply the update when logged online, but then i let it get to the main menu offline, then logged and and applied the update when asked worked fine after that :-)

Microsoft have clearly just cocked up and responded taking it down, attempting to convince people downloading it that it wasnt the real deal. Those that stuck it out, well done. From this small window of opportunity, you got yaself a free game lol

Spydiggity3696d ago

here's the msg i'm getting:

I can't find the free version of Flow anywhere :S

What are you talking about? It's legit.

Once again, the benefits of actually having a hard drive.

gamingdroid3697d ago

If you don't have a hard drive you can still grab the game and download it later when you have a USB Drive or Hard Drive.

It's free!

niceguywii603697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

Downloading it now. And thanks *Merc_With_A_Mouth* when I tried the first time reading the first article about this the page on XBL was as if the deal wasn't there trying to get a credit card number.

Blacktric3697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

If this is not a joke or work of some hacker, I'm seriously happy right now. Hopefully, this and that 2400 points deal is a good sign of more things to come.

No Way3697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

Just curious.. what '2400 points deal?' Haha.

Blacktric3697d ago

I should've said 800 points deal I guess. You know the one that gives you back 800 points if you spend 2400 points on Live Marketplace?

Johnny Jiron3697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

Ive been milking that Bing rewards thing for a few weeks now also. Getting 200ms points for every computer I sign up with a new account. Heh. Rounding 1000msp right now. Just gotta get a few friends who dont care for the points to do my bidding and sign up more accounts for me.

for anyone curious:
sign up using Firefox or IE as yer browser and you get 250 reward points. Redeem those points in the redemption center where they have 100msp. You can only make one purchase at a time so purchase 100 then purchase another 100. In a few weeks theyll send you the point codes. Repeat process with a different computer.
Im sure someone knows how to get around this and use a single computer, but Im not that smart.I have 3 coms in my house so thats 600msps right there plus the computers at my girlfriends.
And any friend I can get to do so for me as well. Plus some legit uses got me another 100 reward points by just using there toolbar :P

COINTELPRO3697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

My 360 got a virus and RROD. Download at your own risk or alternatively download Steam and get lots of free games weekly thanks to Valve. PC gaming is the best.

lolzers3697d ago

As much as I'd love to download Fable II for free on Steam, it's not available dude.

Blacktric3697d ago

Well COINTELPRO, it's your own opinion and I respect that, but for most of us, console gaming is better. Not because we got the best graphics, sound, upgradable components etc. It's because it's simple and fun. On topic; I seriously can't believe this. It's just pure win for us gamers. BTW there's none of that region/IP locking crap for Fable II. So, if you are living in a non-supported country like me, you can download the game without having a problem.

SantistaUSA3697d ago

I'm downloading, it says item already purchased! That's weird, they better not charge me anything for it! But if it is really free....THANK YOU! :D

JasonPC360PS3Wii3697d ago

Who's dumb enough to troll a free game?

gamingdroid3697d ago

It's free, there is nothing to fall for.

Perhaps you should report yourself, Troll!

OMG i bought fable 2 today!!!!! WTFFFFFF

vhero3696d ago

Erm doesn't work you get

This item is not available for purchase from Xbox LIVE Marketplace on the Web.
So I reckon they stopped it OR as usual you fanboys are going along with this crap to try make your console look better which if you need to do that your sad but it wouldn't be the first time.. Either way it's dead now so don't bother..

secksi-killer3696d ago

vhero give it up. there must be a "i love sony" thread for you somewhere

vhero3696d ago

Erm say what now?? It doesn't work you tool! try the link yourself you get that error message. You think I just made that crap up?? Who is the fanboy here?? Hmmm.. I think thats easy to see as it's obviously not me.. I lost 2 bubbles so far for attacking fanboys as your all lowlifes and N4G mods need to get off there a$$3$ and do something about you people.

reckoner3696d ago

Why do you automatically assume that this is a "fanboy" attempt? And why does it bother you so much that this game was released for free for a short period of time?

gamingdroid3696d ago (Edited 3696d ago )

Because vhero is a fanboy himself and when looking through his fanboy goggles it appears that any positive Xbox 360 news is concocted by the opposition!

By the way, I can confirm it worked for me and it was the entire game without the premium DLC.

Seemed to work for me... don't know how or why though.

Desz3697d ago

Part of their give back program before the price goes up.

mcmmaster3697d ago (Edited 3697d ago )

doesn't work for UK, even if you have a USA account, it won't work in the UK, i just tried it
EDIT- UPDATE, it does work for UK residents, hurry up and get it before it goes off

ionicmoose3697d ago

How did you get it to work for UK? I changed the en-US in the link to en-GB and it seemed to work, but when I click download it says I need the latest update even though I have it. Something to do with being in the new dashboard program thing?

mcmmaster3697d ago

i did it by changing the xbox website to the usa one, clicked international and clicked usa, then i signed in as my Uk account, then i typed in fable 2 and it was there for free, but microsoft fixed it now,doesn't work anymore, lets just hope they dont delete it from my download list

LordMarius3697d ago

Downloading, free is free

No Way3697d ago

Not to mention, it's a good game.
