Crazy good deal at GameStop for Fable 2!

http://www.gamestop....s/fable-2/70785

Not sure if the deal is online only. The email says offer is valid 1/25/2012 - 1/31/2012. Seems to be live now.

I don't think it's a misprint...

Other sales, if curious, including Fable 3 for $12.99.

Edit: Deal works in store and online! Thanks for all the feedback from various posters. Some people say they have trouble getting the deal in store, so you may have to specifically ask for it--or you could just buy online and use pick up in store and be good.

Edit 2: Now $4.99 on GameStop.com, but people are still getting it fro $2.99 in the stores. Also found that it's on sale for $4.99 + free shipping at Best Buy.

Edit- well looking at gs.com the platinum hits is still $17.99

Since I'm sure a lot of people have already played this, how good is it? I got it in the BB b2g2 sale and haven't opened it. I'm looking into what to play next after I finish skyward sword, and its either Fable II, LA Noire + DLC, Final Fantasy 13, Darksiders, or Crackdown 2. Thoughts?

I thought Fable 2 was really good and entertaining some graphical and gameplay glitches here and there like getting stuck in trees and walls occasionally but very fun and lots to do. it's def worth 2.99

when gamestop lowers the price this much, does that mean they have a millon used copies of the game?

most of their older used games are between 10 - 18 dollars

+1 for Darksiders

Now go return Fable II, buy it for $2.99 and pick up something else as part of the BB sale (if you can).

Yeah defiantly Darksiders. Epic ending leading into the new one coming out this year.

It's nothing amazing but you can play through it rather quickly if you go through the main story. For $2.99, though, it's well worth a try.

Yes. Wasn't this game bundled with consoles? It's like Jet Set Radio Future / Sega GT 2002 with the original Xbox, there are millions of copies of those games.

Defenitely recommend Darksiders, One of the few that I 1000/1000, required 1 1/2 playthru's but loved every second.

EDIT:
I had to share this:

Fable 2 is ok, I got mine when it was free on XBL, but I probably wouldn't pay more than 5 for it now. It has an ok story, but it definitely didn't stick in my mind more than the original dragon age.

very meh game. It was addicting, but the combat was boring and too easy, the story very meh, and worst of all the morality system is a total joke, as the choices suck, and I don't like games that change you looks based on choices (I was kind of mad ME2 did it too since I thought some of the renegade choices weren't evil at all but actually the choice that made more sense morally, so why the scars? at least it wasn't as horrible-looking though) I would give it a 6.5/10.

I had so much fun with this game - one of my favorite exclusives on the 360.

This is ironic not only because I'm playing Zelda, but because Dtoid is my go to gaming news site that I read on the daily.

I've purchased fable 2 vanilla on two separate occasions and each time I've received the platinum hits version. Not sure why.

Wow. I thought Fable II was much better than Darksiders. S--t games more than $2.99. Buy the game. It is good.

If you like adventure games or RPG-lite games, I think Fable 2 is a great play. I paid $30 back in the day and (to me) it was worth every penny. There are 3 possible endings, you can make your character all good, all evil, or in between. Character's appearance and weapons changes as you progress which is kind of neat. Your choices affect how the townspeople interact with you. Personally, I've bought much crappier games for much more than $2.99. :p Just my two cents.

I buy pretty much every 'decent' game under 5 dollars, this will be no exception. :)

Fun little game. I picked it up during BBY B2G2 a couple weeks ago in my 4 games for under $10 steal and I would say pick it up if you haven't. The only reason it is so cheap is because it came with consoles (like MUA) so the market is flooded or else it would still be going for more.
