FABLE III free but won't last

Post by Goomf on Tue Jun 11, 2013 12:42 am

There appears to be a glitch. It shows a $ cost but when you click to DL it states free. If not, swap to pay with M$ points and it should then state free.

Cheers for the heads up Goomf. I already own it - it's a great game and good fun with some really nice graphics. Well worth the d/l for anyone that doesn't have it.

Announced at E3 this morning, xbox360 will have 2 free downloadable games each month... Assassins Creed 2 available next month free for XBL Gold members. There is another one, can't remember the name.

Wouldn't have a clue what the game is about but I followed the link and downloaded it.
Thanks for the heads up Toast

Just done it. Don't press download it to console. You must press buy it on credit card or you get the can't download error message. Do it from xbox live on the PC. That's how I did it.

Should do this, then trade in the disk... Been going through my collection getting a bundle of games to trade in to lower the price of my new XB1

On the PC I used the Buy game button which says free next to it. It then goes to the payment site, where it has my CC listed. I confirm and it comes up with the can not download at this time.

Do you think i need to Xbox on? I would have thought it would have just waited till I started it up next time.

****Edit****
All good, now queued ready for download when I turn on the Xbox. I used the points option and it did not deduct any points... Cool.

Nope, well on mine the website now says already purchased, so I am expecting when turn on the Xbox it will start downloading.

Just keep trying t boy, try both the points and the Cc options.

Maybe it is a bit busy processing all the leeching... lol

Hope it downloads before tonight's last round of the V8s. Embarassed

Yeah the person I got the info from later told me you had to go straight to the points option even though the CC said free.

And Dazza, you're the 2nd person who mentioned the free DLs. Maybe playing catch up with PS3 which I didn't realise gave quality free games out all the time with their live sub. I never looked into it and assumed it was just a bunch of average arcade titles. They're about to get Borderlands.

There is a section in the featured games tab up now called games with gold. It says to tune in every couple of weeks for a free game for gold members at a rate of 2 free downloadable games per month. Might be a good time to pick up all the games i wanted to buy but didn't want to spend hard earned on when they where new. Cheers for the heads up but fellas ya really can't beat free shit Very Happy
