Fable Anniversary (Xbox 360) is available for preorder on Amazon.com for $29.99. The link is below. I'm not sure if this is gonna be the actual price so lock it in now incase it goes up. I assumed it was going to be $39.99 like Halo CE Anniversary.

I'm guessing that is MSRP because doesn't Amazon normally list the MSRP and cross it out with the lower price underneath otherwise?

It's still $10 more than what any ONE HD remake should cost.

There's a huge difference between converting a game to run in higher resolution (the Ubisoft packs, the Sony packs) and actually remaking the game. From what I saw, both this and Halo took a lot more effort than something like the HD packs that are cranked out by other studios. This is closer to the Flashback XBLA release than the Beyond Good & Evil one. I think $30 is reasonable for what is essentially a new game styled after an older one.

Cool. A lower starting MSRP will mean it'll hit $10 faster!

Might as well lock in a preorder just in case. Hopefully they toss in a good preorder bonus like they did for Halo CE. Play Fable 1 again for achievements? Absofreakinglutely!

Actual remake with new content as far as I can tell.

If anyone is curious about whether this is an HD remaster or a full remake, just read the product description and it tells you flat out

I am still surprised that very few people here actually do that

I had no idea this was even coming out. I watched my friend play this a long time ago on PC and it looked like lots of fun. Still haven't played Fable 3 from XBL Gold yet, though people tell me it's the worst of the trio.

Fable 3 is no doubt the weakest of the series. Two hit that nice blend of action, story and comedy that few games do. I actually wanted to get 1000/1000 on that one.

Back on topic... This new version seems cool but when I can get TLC during a steam sale for $2 you've got to do a lot more than pretty things up to justify a $30 price point

Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica.

$30? Not bad, but $20 would be even better. Graphics overhaul, smart glass use, achievements... what else are they adding? 

Also, going to have to agree: Fable 1> Fable 2> Fable 3> Fable "KInect Journey. It's been getting worst each release, so kinda glad they went the HD remake route considering what's been going on. Hope Fable 4 redeems the series when it releases on the XB1, but I have my doubts.

The first Fable was excellent, I will probably buy this to play it again.

No. 5 cents, because everything should be 5 cents.

Preorder to lock in price in case it is price error. If not, just cancel. Simple as that.

First one was fun but had very little content. I remember buying it day 1 and finishing it in a day and being extremely disappointed. Other than Halo it was one of my first Xbox purchases. :(

I remember being underwhelmed by Fable, but I'd like to give it another shot. Hopefully the remake will eventually hit PC.

$29.99? Nice.

Hopefully that is the MSRP, because that is a pretty good price for it.

It's still $10 more than what any ONE HD remake should cost.

Hardly any releases are actually HD remakes, though.  Most are just pretty much straight ports.  This is more like a total renovation like Halo Anniversary was, graphically at least, so $30 seems fair.
