for a limited time only
Seeing as how Fable III is coming in a couple of weeks, It seems that people who dosen't already have Fable II can get it for free for their xbox 360.
All you have to do is follow this link:
all you have to do is scroll down on this page, and click "Download to Xbox 360", and the game will be all yours.
Do note, that it might not work for some people.
I myself have never actually tried any of the fables games before, Fable 1 or Fable 2. Seeing this offer made me want to give this game an actual chance to see how it is. Maybe in a week, i'll give a review to describe my thoughts in Fable II.
Here's the source:
I could confirm this. I actually got my hands on Fable II for free myself.
It looks as if it changed from being a full 7 gigs ver. to a 2 gig ver., splitting the game into 5 episodes. you can download the first episode for free, but then if you want to continue, it'll cost you Microsoft points for the other episodes.
With the new xbox.com update, it seems that the free game is no more.
