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.


It's just that simple.

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

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

i wonder if it includes the lost chapters. The original is one of my favorite games.

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.

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.
