XBL: Games with Gold
 
Searched, lock if old.
XBL gold members should have seen this thread: [url]http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=581137[/url] by now and realized that Fable 3 is free.

I was browsing the marketplace just now and saw that it's part of the "Games with Gold" promotion. [B]From 10th of June till 31st of December this year[/B] gold members get 2 games free. You've got to check back after 2 weeks into the month to download the second. Fable 3 is the 1st game for this month.

Hardly the promotion to beat out PS+'s free games every month without fail.

Hagi 06-11-2013 12:02 PM

Fuck yeah Fable 3?

Feorax 06-11-2013 12:04 PM

So this is for 360 only, not Xbox One right?

[QUOTE=Feorax;62575581]So this is for 360 only, not Xbox One right?[/QUOTE]

Only 360 games, correct.

Alx 06-11-2013 12:05 PM

I downloaded Fable 3, didn't intend to buy it, but if it's free I can give it a try.
I wonder what the second game will be.
As for next month, I already own AC2 (although I may have gotten rid of the disk, maybe I should download it anyway :P), but will also give Halo 3 a try (it would be my first, I never got convinced by the demo/beta of the serie).

The best part: the games are not rentals. I prefer it this way.

That's certainly pretty cool

MS can't do it without completely changing the license system on the 360 since they don't have the same system in place that Sony has for PS+.

Alpende 06-11-2013 12:09 PM

I hope they give out some new ones before I switch over to the PS4.

Temporary, wonder why?

Lima 06-11-2013 12:11 PM

[QUOTE=RiPPn;62576596]Temporary, wonder why?[/QUOTE]

Maybe because they have some new more refined model coming for the One?

Satchel 06-11-2013 12:13 PM

If the games aren't rentals, then it technically beats Plus. Because you know, you're not renting the games, you actually own them.

maomaoIYP 06-11-2013 12:14 PM

[QUOTE=Lima;62577076]Maybe because they have some new more refined model coming for the One?[/QUOTE]

I hope they do. I think it would be a terrible business decision not to, considering how much ps+ gives for less money. With the recent PS4 announcements I've already started questioning myself why I put myself through paying for XBL all these years, I certainly don't play much multiplayer anymore.

Freshmaker 06-11-2013 12:16 PM

Halo 3's one of the ones up next.

MS is generous.

maomaoIYP 06-11-2013 12:20 PM

I just found another panel under "sales and special offers" that says 'Walking Dead free to Gold members.' I clicked on it and nothing happens though. The game in the XBLA section isn't free as well.

I think it's just the first episode, again.

lucius 06-11-2013 12:25 PM

Well that's good I have the two upcoming games though, if they keep offering good ones I might get Gold again even though multiplayer does not mean much to me, they have to implement this with Xbox one though, seems pretty much their answer to Playstation Plus.

It was only the first episode that was free last week until today. Part of the Deal of the Week.

eggwolio 06-13-2013 05:48 PM

Is Halo 3 up for free yet? I was navigating the marketplace on the web and couldn't get it to show up free, but Fable III still is.

This is an awesome deal for people who don't have Gold currently but may have several 48hr trials still sitting unused in their games. Use your trial on the 15th, folks. Well, I guess awesome is relative. Old games are old.

PhatSaqs 06-13-2013 05:49 PM

Another fail for MS imo. This sounded awesome until they announced it was only through the end of the year.

FrsDvl 06-13-2013 05:51 PM

Next month is assassins Creed 2 and halo 3. they mentioned it at e3

I wonder if it would have anything to do with the entirely new infrastructure rolling out at the end of the year.

quickwhips 06-13-2013 05:52 PM

The fact that you own the games even after gold ends is awesome. PSN should take note (thats the only thing that I don't like about PS+) . MS better take note and make this X1 feature for gold also.

gregor7777 06-13-2013 05:53 PM

Very cool

Maybe. I guess we will have to wait and see.

hgarrett54 06-13-2013 05:55 PM

Awesome. Always wanted to try Halo 3.

Ghazi 06-13-2013 06:00 PM

I'm confused about this, I've seen it, but they said Assassins Creed 2 and Halo 3 would be the first games. Not Fable 3

Trials don't work like that. You're not Gold, therefore you won't be able to download the games.

It's a test for driving subscriptions on 360, I'm sure they won't ditch it if they see a good bump.

Perhaps also getting some of the XBL general population to be comfortable downloading full games to set expectations for Xbone.

MS's big bet is on a 100% digital distribution future, thats what all these limitations are driving towards.

Dead Rising 2 and Crackdown would be AWESOME!

Didn't play a single Crackdown game so this sounds interesting and I still have to play DR2 too.

Colonel Nasty 07-28-2013 03:09 PM

Not bad. Better than arcade games.

Assuming its correct I am very pleased with that. Lost my copy of the first and not yet played the other one. Great news.

Also very interesting timing to do them now, when DR3 is due, so another Crackdown 3 hint..?

I hope the inclusion of Crackdown (if it's accurate) means an announcement for Crackdown 3 isn't far off/will happen at Gamescom.

Yes please.

m23 07-28-2013 03:16 PM

I already have Crackdown but I hope this just further confirms Crackdown 3. I never played Dead Rising 2 so that's cool.

Oynox 07-28-2013 03:16 PM

So what games will germany get? I'd really like to play crackdown, but my US account has no gold..

bronzeP 07-28-2013 03:17 PM

I'm in Austria, I hope I'll get those games and not the german ones (if they'd get other games).

If the games are available in your country, I don't see a reason why you wouldn't.

Better than XBLA at least, even though I've already played those games ages ago.

Why don't you account migrate to the UK , you can set it back to Germany in 3 months time?

coma1138 07-28-2013 03:24 PM

I guess that's further proof that Crackdown 3 is coming soon.

Problem with that is that there is still an IP ban. You would need to use a VPN connection to download those games.
