    I think it's broken into 4 something part
    the first part is free, but you'll have to spend points on the other part

    but after going through the links you provided, looks like it might be the whole game
    take advantage of it, I already have the game so I don't need it
    but it's awesome info for people who haven't played it yet

    Yes but it's the real full game on the link. Appearently it isn't working for everyone now though. Read the other link otherwise.

    I think if you already bought the free episode 1 when it was online, it will not work. Not that I care, I own 2 copies of the GOTY edition on disc.

    ah well, at least some people were able to.
    also, this seems to be an usual glitch on virtual marketplaces, some time ago on psn the newly released at that time psp game undead knights could be downloaded by anyone for free, of course it is fixed now but i guess this just means everone has to keep an eye on the internet for when things like these happen [​IMG].

    i got it to work, but i really don't care considering i already own 2 copies of the game. i bought the free episode 1 when it was available too, so i don't know why it won't work for some people.

    you guys need to check other forums. the free download for the whole game is (was?) a mistake.

    also the download only works for handfull of consoles. at this time, there is no way to til if it will work for you unless you try it.

    plus microsoft says if the download works for you, they'll banned both your console and account for life!

    where'd you hear that? microsoft's xbox twitter account says you won't. in fact, i'm pretty sure one of their tweets said "download away!".
    and lionhead studios (dev of fable 2) even promoted the "mistake" on their twitter.

    [​IMG] i'm not sure if microsoft meant for it to be free. i think they accidentally swapped the previously-free 'fable 2 episode 1' for the full version (twitter).

    but here's proof that lionhead approves: twitter
