Sweet deal, isn't it?
Want a highly rated, immersive, and wildly successful Xbox 360 game for free? Then you're in luck - the downloadable version of Fable II is free, but only for a limited time and only for select users.

Even though there was no official announcement about the price drop, it seems like a legitimate deal and is likely a promotion to get new excitement brewing for the upcoming launch of Fable III.
Gamers first spotted the game as a free download a couple days ago, thinking it might have been an error. But it's still showing up - for some Xbox 360 owners. If it were a gaffe, that's the king of thing that would be cleared up in no time.
The more curious thing is how it's only appearing as free for some people. We can't help but wonder if Microsoft is somehow looking at user activity or game libraries to determine who is best suited for such a deal. But that's a whole other issue for another day, and not really worth getting into here.
Fable II went on sale in 2008 and went on to become one of the Xbox 360 Platinum Hits titles, selling over four million copies. It was seen as an uncontested success for game maker Peter Molyneaux.
The Fable game franchise has earned high praise for its open-ended approach to role-playing games, literally letting the gamer create the story and making it impossible for any two players to have the same experience.
Molyneaux has been critical of his own work and always devotes his time to creating better adventures than before. He promises Fable III, due out for the holiday season, will be leaps and bounds better than Fable II. But if you still want to check out the latter, head to the Xbox Live marketplace and see if the game is free for you.
