Fable III is free on Xbox LIVE Marketplace


It may be a mistake or it may not, but you can currently grab Fable III for the grand price of £0.00.

Using this link you'll see that the full game is listed with a price, however if you click purchase and then select the option to 'use Microsoft Points' you'll grab it for free.

Could this be the 'Special Surprise' that Microsoft has in store for Xbox 360 users tonight? Is it planning to replicate Sony and give away a free game a month perhaps or something along those lines? Or is this simply a mistake?

Either way, grab it now.

I am surprised microsoft didnt announce something similar to PS plus on the console launch unless they are leaving that for tonight.

Did MS even put out an official statement? Why did someone try and buy Fable 3 in the first place?

Not really interested, but free is free, so I've added it to my download queue.

Only works on gold accounts, so it looks like they are going to announce a free game per month sort of thing

Looks like it could well be MS's answer to PS+ then, freebies for paying customers, anyone fancy trawling the marketplace to see if there are any other freebies?

Microsoft's PS+ that they don't tell anyone about. Seems legit (I think once they show Fable Anniversary today they will end it by saying that Fable 3 is free today)

Didn't this happen a couple of years ago, bit it turned out it was just 'chapter 1' (25%) of Fable 3 and you had to pay for the rest?

That was Fable 2 and that was Microsoft trying out the episodic route

OMG this is disgraceful, you mean we can't have free stuff unless we have an internet connection, f*** you MS... only joking of course. Could this be their way of trying to engender some public support again after getting a good kicking recently, or is it more likely to be a one off?

I would say it's a sign that they will show Fable Anniversary Gameplay and announce Fable 4 today

should be getting 2 or 3 for free a month like ps+ why not it costs pretty much the same as Ps+ so they should be doing more to beat ps+ if not the same, but nooooo they do less!!! Nox said they get kingdoms of amular free we get fable 3 which is the worst out the 1st 3! sort it out MS or lose loyal customers

& If you want me to mention an exclusive that we got on PS+ (Since Fable is an exclusive) I think Ico & Shadow of the Colossus should suffice

I think that's what will happen Nox, they'll announce Fable 4 today and want people to be hyped about the Anniversary too, so this one will get people excited about Fable again.

TBH I think Fable 2 should have been chosen to be free, hell of a lot better game

UK only, only works if you have gold = me is happy. Although I think that this is defo not a mistake. Its E3 day, too coincidental. M$ keep going on about games now because of their stupid conference so this is probably just something they thought they would shove out there
