It's seems like it's free for some and $19,99 for some. But it's free for me!!

It was actually free for a couple of hours, but know they have seemed to fixed it. But there were some people that downloaded it.

Maybe this was another Microsoft file sharing issue. They current have all the demo games for Kinect up, but only developers and media people have the system. Microsoft does this to save space. Check out Microsoft's download center and it will have all kinds of interesting items.

This got spread round twitter like wild fire but did no one read? It's just Episode 1 which has been free for quite awhile now if you want to keep playing the game after what's in Episode 1 it will cost you!

Hey everyone! FYI : The free Fable 2 download everyone is talking about is Episode 1 of the game and is legit. Download away! ^JM

Hahah oh god, I managed to download this. It's because I downloaded Fable II Episode 1 before, but deleted it when I found out it was in parts. Just had to click "Download Again" and voila. Free games are always fun.

I was able to add to my Queue, but the question was if when I got home from work, it would still download to my 360. Sure enough I get home, and quickly turned on my 360, and there it was! Downloading and at 20% so far

Same deal for me, except I knew it was in parts. I didn't even finish the download (originally), canceled it, but it has worked in my favor. I'm not going to turn down a free game, especially one which I planned to pick up again, to complete the DLC.

Thanks TC and thanks MS I guess, for messing up!

Lionhead have confirmed that this is NOT a glitch, they're going to fix so you can download it from the Dashboard too.

So they're giving away the game, for free? That just doesn't make sense.

They wrote it on Twitter.
I think it has something to do with the release of Fable 3.

I downloaded it and it keeps stopping at 99% then its glitched and wont download after there.

too bad xbox.com is always so "fast" in its respose times.. it's useless for browsing stuff, and useless for getting stuff onto the download queue:(

If so, ridiculous. That is a great game. Especially if it's free.

All they've done is point to a Koatu article saying it's being given away for free on the MS website. AFAIK, they haven't confirmed that it's not a glitch. If it wasn't a glitch, I'm sure that MS would have it fixed by now.

I still believe it's a glitch, but I hope I'm wrong.

Well, my download completed. I loaded up my character from the end of the game, worked fine. It seems very coincidental for it to happen so close to Fable 3's release. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a stunt pulled by Lionhead and MS to drum up interest for Fable 3.

Whether it was a mistake or intentional, doesn't bother me. I got a free game.

How are you guys still downloading this after Microsoft disabled it from the market place website?

As I said before, I had already downloaded Episode 1. On the marketplace, it is as if Episode 1 has been upgraded to the full game. When I went to the link, it said something along the lines of "Already purchased". I just pressed download and it started downloading the full game.

Unless you downloaded Episode 1, I don't think you can get this anymore. People are reporting an error message "Sorry, this is not longer available" etc. I was lucky...

I just went to Live to see if it was free there but shows $19.99, I might try it back later to see if they feel generous. The site still says free but you can't get it (same message that everyone else is getting). Just out of curiosity I clicked it to see if maybe it would change to free (on Live) but I didn't dare go any further unless I face the wrath of my wife! :eek:
