Today, but I’m not sure for how long, you can download Fable III free on your Xbox 360. I first read the news at WPCentral and skeptical myself, I turned-on my Xbox at 7:30 AM to confirm if the deal was true, and indeed it is, I’m downloading the game now.
Although when you check Microsoft’s Xbox website and do a search for Fable III the price will say $19.99, but logging in to your Xbox Live account in your Xbox 360 will say “Free Download”.
Intended or unintended? I don’t know, but it seems that Microsoft is in full-gear to embrace the cloud as the primary method of game delivery. Today’s bargain actually coincide with Microsoft’s Xbox media briefing at E3, where the company is expected to reveal more information on Xbox One, but specially about games coming for the video game console later this year.
If you are planning to take part in the live stream of E3, you can watch it live at Xbox.com, or in your Xbox 360 in Xbox Live or on Spike TV (US and Canada) starting today at 12:30 PM ET.
Let me know if you were able to download the game for free.
Update: Microsoft is giving away Fable III as a token of appreciation and to celebrate the beginning of E3 2013.
