Update:
Limited Edition is $25.60
Platinum Hits (w/DLC) $27.99

More of a warm deal than a hot deal, I just recently learned about the release of Fable II Plantium Hits on January 6th. The cheapest I can find for it is at Amazon, for $27.99 with FSSS.

The Platinum Hits version includes the "See the Future" and "Knothole Island" DLC expansion packs, which cost a total of 1360 pts on Xbox Live. Better yet, for those of you with limited hard drive space available, this DLC is included on the Platinum Hits disc itself, so you won't need to download the content from Xbox Live with a token.

Here's a review of the Platinum Hits version on IGN: http://xbox360.ign.c.../1060444p1.html

Overall, $28 isn't a great price, considering it retails for only $30, but this is one of the best games for the 360, and the bonus DLC content really makes this Platinum Hits version shine.

So is the DLC only playable off of the disc or can you install it too, like Fallout 3?

Don't know for sure, but I'd guess that it's only playable off the disc.

According to IGN, you play everything off of the disc.

This will be a great deal when it hits $20, then I will buy it again.

Just wish it included the halo armor and energy weapon. Can't find those anymore.

As a fairly new 360 owner I can't wait to play this game. I've been waiting for this edition to come out.

I'm pretty sure the DLC is on disc. I have fond memories of the first Fable, but if I had a 360 this would be a day-one purchase.

Damn. I just picked up Fable II for $7.50 at Target.

Guess even if I buy the DLC I'll still come out ahead, but it'd be nice to have it all in one package.

Wal Mart has the regular version for 20, but I'll have a 15 dollar gift card to them in bout two weeks so I'd be paying five out the door. Here's hopin

The See the Future DLC was pretty lame(especially now that we all know what Fable 3 is) but Knothole Island was very good. They both have some decent content and fun achievements to hunt down.

Just use your gift card on the Platinum Hits version so you make sure you get the game+DLC for cheap instead of just the game. If you're hooked on the game like some people get once they start playing it, you'll definitely want to buy the DLC.

this is one of the best games for the 360


:roll:


Fable II was/is the biggest disappointment of a game this generation. Think about the narrow pathways, secluded areas & the most idiotic "gesture" system I have ever seen.


Fable fails as an rpg, adventure game & so much more. Simply horrible game....

Been holding off on buying this game for a while but seeing the dlc added to the disk makes this a buy for me.

I traded in my copy of the regular edition during the gamestop "get $20 for any game on the list" promo at the start of the month. I had not gotten any of the DLC so we'll be picking this up. The wife and I both love it.

I usually give more weight to the user ratings (6.2/10, 1867 votes). Having said that, I just picked up the original FII release at Target, so we'll see.

Fable 2 was disappointing, bought it day 1 and it didn't live up to the Lost Chapters. The poster who just criticized it is right on the money. Who cares what the metacritic rating is ... These are the same people that allowed Transformers 2 to become a blockbuster.

Fable 2 was a step backward for the series ... with that said, I'm still oddly tempted to pick this up just to run around in that Master Chief outfit ... But not because it's a particularly great game. Does anyone know if they fixed the awful laggy menus and controls that were problematic when the game first came out?

Personally, I thought it was ok. Fun, but not great.

It's going to lower in price. $29.99 is the MSRP for Greatest hits.

Hmmmm, Metacritic rating for Transformers 2 from critics is an abysmal 35/100, and the user score on the movie is 5.9/10. The people who paid to see the movie and made it a blockbuster are the "users."

I agree that critics can often get things wrong, but popular opinion is equally likely, if not more likely, to get things wrong.

In regards to Tf2 I was referring to the billions it made, even though it was terrible. In regards to Fable 2, I just don't understand the love that some folks have for the game. I think it's finally balancing out now, but I know whenit first came out I was in a minority that wasn't impressed. Frankly the game has a weaker plot, fewer boss battles, fewer developed characters and fewer enemies than the lost chapters.

I think my problem is that I bought TLC to psych myself up for two and then that actually turned out to be a better game. They added too much of the Sims to 2 and took out most of the story and actual RPG feel to make me give it a strong recommendation. Granted, at $20 it would still be worth picking up just to mess around with IMO.

Definitely getting this. I was a moron and deleted my game data for Fable II in 2008 after I got all the retail achievements. Now I have to beat the game again to do the DLC =\

Walmart.com has Fable II Game of the Year Edition. It was released in Europe quite a while ago but apparently it's also being released in the US. Exact same content as the platinum hits version BUT it the art work isn't redish rather it's a green color and doesn't have that gray platinum hits box.
