You get 3 prizes depending on the hat you pick at the end. The other prizes are
Middle Hat: 3 Piece Chicken Suit (ace), Right Hat: Expressions book and "Apocalyptic Pink Die" (presumably for hair)
. Collect them all!

Also, beat the "Chicken Kicker" game on the same site (look in the barrel) and gain 1000 gold to start with.
That chicken kicker game is awesome.:lol

*Players will be able to invite another player into there game at any moment of play online or offline.
*Offline co-op guest can be chosen from either a prefab character or can be imported from an existing Fable II save on the systems harddrive or memory card.

So you can play coop on the same console ? Or is it system link ?

Yes, you can play co-op on the same console:
While on the same console, a second player with their own account can drop in and out as a "henchman" to the first player. If the second player on the same console does not have an account of their own, the henchman is made in a brief create screen that pauses the game. Henchmen created this way are not saved into the main player's game.
The first player decides how much bounty the henchman will obtain, e.g. gold and renown. The second player can port any experience, renown and gold to their own Fable II Hero if they imported their character.

I have to say, that voice-over is hilariously bad though... sounds like some random IGN intern trying (poorly) to sound all 'ye olde english'-y :lol
Haha, yeah, I was thinking the same thing.

Wait, you can actually play Fable II co-op... on the same screen? ON the same console?? In person?!

I thought that (amazing) concept died this generation.
This truly is the best game ever?

Yep. This, Bioshock, and LBP are all confirmed for midnight release.

Wow that's going to be crazy. Now I don't know if I'm going to go to the midnight launch.

If you only have money for two, wait for Fable though. Bioshock is a must play, and play it while it's relevant.

Finally! Some great gameplay that makes me actually want to play this game. Hype +20.

But seriously, those voice overs are some of the worst I've ever heard.
I may be wrong, but isn't the voice over an IGN writer?

My best buy didn't have any fable 2 preorder things out on the floor, i'm hoping that doesn't mean they cut them off because they got too many? They're usually pretty good about these things?

Also, what are the chances of costcos getting this day one? wouldn't mind $7 off the pricetag...

If you're logged in on Xbox.com, I think that's how it works.

when you click to redeem your prize, it should send you over to live.com and ask you to login
its possible you have your login information saved, and when it sent you to that page it identified you right off the bat

just confirm that you got a page that said your prize will be waiting for your when you log into xbox live(playing fable 2?)

This seems to be the bonus armor you get with the Limited Edition.

Yeah the promo codes are still in the box until they run out. Sometimes I go into BB and buy a game and find the preorder box still on the shelf. I take that box up there when I purchase my game they have no problem giving you both. :D

Because they think Al Gore is a douche and that global warming is a lie.

Oh come on!

It's a fantasy game about a character than can kill an entire village, then be completely good and admired in another; be married to a woman in one town and have children, while also being married to a guy in another town...that can shoot lighting bolts form his hands..all that, while wearing just briefs..

Those it needs an explanation? :p
