Fable 3 for free but not part of Xbox Gold incentive


Microsoft has said Fable 3 will be free until June 30 through Xbox Live Gold, although it's not part of the special Gold Subscription incentive announced at E3. 

Gold subscribers will be able to gain access to both Assassin’s Creed 2 and Halo 3 for the grand total of zero from July 1. You'll be able to keep these games forever, which is no doubt Microsoft's way of saying thanks to loyal fans.

Are you grabbing these games?

I still think they were testing the free games thing with one they thought no body would even consider looking at the price for.

Wonder what the games for next month will be, I won't be buying any more current gen games so if i can get some free games worth playing then that's cool

August will prob be something like Forza 3 and Mass Effect, If they put Dead Rising 1 for free I'll grab that again as it's awesome

I wonder why they havent made a big fuss over Fable 3 being free. So there are 4 months left after July to the Xbone what do you reckon the other 8 games will be?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
A bunch of 5 year old games that everyone already has, god forbid they put up on a game that was released less than 2 years ogo
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
I don't reckon we will see any recent games even from 2012 I do think either Forza 3 or 4 will be one to get people in the mood for Forza 5, not sure about the others
Bindiana's avatar

I will guess Gears of War as one maybe 2 as one Forza 2 or 3. Perfect Dark maybe
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Yeah I think we will see Gears 1 or 2, to be honest I think they will do games that have sequels coming out soon so new people play it, maybe enjoy it and end up buying the new game, so prob dead rising 1, if forza 3 is not one i will be surprised.

What did PS+ get in the last couple months? I don't have PS3 any more so don't know what kind of stuff they give out.

The "Games with Gold" page http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/Live/game-with-gold seems to suggest otherwise. Fable 3 is all over that page, and T&C say it is from 10th June to 31st Dec, with 2 games per month.. Also GAME say that Assassins Creed 1 is the 2nd game to get along with Fable 3. http://e3.game.co.uk/microsoft-e3/ Perhaps they intended to put AC1 out, and then changed their minds, and now claiming Fable 3 is not part of it?

Okami HD, The Cave, Thomas was Alone, Malicious, Catherine, Shadow of the Colossus, Ico, Demon Souls, Kingdoms of Amalur and X-COM

Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Hm none of them games really interest me to be honest apart from Kingdoms of Amalur so guess I wouldn't be getting a good deal with PS+ either really.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
Uncharted 3, Little Big Planet 2, XCOM, Infamous 2, Kingdom of Amalur, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Demon Souls, Thomas Was Alone, Malicious, Catherine, Quantum Conundrum, Sleeping Dogs, Okami HD, The Cave, Darksiders, Lord of the Rings: WITN, Joe danger 2, Limbo, F1 Race Stars, Dead or Alive 5, GOW, Ratchet & Clank - All 4 One - Those are the ones I've picked up over the 8 months I've been on it really. I didn't grab Arkham City, Hitman, Dead Space 2 etc because I already owned them.

Aye I hadn't played DS2, Sleeping Dogs or Limbo when they were out. But it introduced them to me really. I'm suprised about Heavy Rain too, but think that may get rolled out just before Beyond:Two Souls.

So Xbox users for there £39.99 get :- Assassins Creed 2 (Released 3.5 years ago) & Halo 3 (Released 5.5 years ago) Now you compare that with Playstation Plus Members get Uncharted 3 (18 months old) X Com: Enemy Unknown (8 months old) Uncharted Golden Abyss - VITA (14 months old) LittleBigPlanet Karting (6 months old) LOTR: War in The North (18 months old) Demon Souls ( 3 years old) Kingdom Of Amalur: Reckoning (16 months old) Tough Choice Microsoft!!!!!

Fair play to Sony then that's pretty good for a months worth of plus. but then only bad thing with plus is if you drop your sub you lose the games, but now with PS4 plus is needed for online play I guess people who play online will keep the plus all the time any way. The only ones I'd prob grab from them is Uncharted 3 and KoA to be honest, but may also have a play of Rayman and try demon souls as they would be free, deffinitely better than Halo 3 and AC2, Though I may pick up the free games on LIVE just for few easy achievements :P

SotC is deffinately a game you have to play to experience rather than watch videos of. Although, to say it looks boring, dated and has too much platforming are you sure you were watching the right game?

Shadow of the Colossus is one of the most peaceful, emotional and intense gameS I played on the PS2
Whitey's avatar

PS2? I'm sure that was last gen :)
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago

Still one of the better games you could play. I randomly popped in to Game when I was up town and saw it sitting there for £10 with a nice looking box, needed a new game so took the plunge and never looked back.

I'll tell you a bad game... Star Trek, played 15 mins on a different GT as I was worried it was going to be worse then the reviews... It was worse than the worse I though it was going to be! AI had spok running in a corner after just a few mins into the game..
