Fable Trilogy bundles all three games--how much would you pay? [UPDATE]

Bundle confirmed.

[UPDATE 2] Microsoft has announced that the Fable Trilogy bundle will be released digitally on February 7.

[UPDATE 1] Following the publication of this story a Microsoft representative confirmed that the Fable Trilogy is indeed real. More details will come later.

"The Fable Trilogy bundle in the Xbox Marketplace is real and in development. The bundle will include full Xbox 360 titles for Fable Anniversary, Fable II, and Fable III. We're excited to share official details regarding the release soon on Lionhead.com," a Microsoft representative said.

The original story is below.

A product listing on Xbox.com reveals the Fable Trilogy, an unannounced bundle pack that includes Fable Anniversary, Fable II, and Fable III at a discounted rate over purchasing the games individually. The bundle will launch on February 4, according to the listing, the same day that Fable Anniversary is slated to release.

Fable Anniversary will sell for $40 on Xbox Live at launch, while sequels Fable II are currently offered for $20 and $15, respectively (Yes, Fable II is more expensive than Fable III). That means the Fable Trilogy should sell for less than $75. We've reached out to Microsoft and will update with anything we hear back.

The Fable Trilogy product description points out that if you already own one of the bundled games, you won't get an additional discount on the bundle, nor will you receive an additional copy of the game you already own.

Fable Anniversary is described as the "definitive" version of the 2004 role-playing game, featuring 1080p graphics, new audio, a new interface, Achievements, SmartGlass integration, and the Lost Chapters expansion.

The next core Fable game is Fable Legends for Xbox One, which Microsoft officially announced during Gamescom 2013 in August. A beta for the online-focused game will launch sometime this year. Developer Lionhead Studios expects the game to have a lifespan of 5-10 years.

Are they planning on releasing this for the PC as well in the future?

I would pay $10 for the first one, but only on Xbox One.


Two and three were pretty boring games.


Come to think of it.. the first probably wouldn't hold up since half the fun was it being a new experience along with the E3 hype way back when.

I'd love Fable II on PC to be honest. There'd be a definite mod community to fix all it's problems and if you looked at it as it's own game, it was actually pretty fun. I've played so much TLC that I never want to pick up the first Fable again.

Zero.  Most Overhyped, Underachieving RPG's in history.  The first one is fairly decent, the other two can rot.

Ah Fable, good times, good times. Trilogy you say? $40 bucks you say? Not bad considering the remastering of the first two good games. Nostalgia can be a powerful motivator but all of the nostalgia in the world can't undo the horrors i've been subjected to playing that last THING. Release it on Steam Lionhead and Golly-bolly-gosh-darnet you've got yourself a deal.

To me it is maybe worth $50-$60. You can get Fable III on Amazon for a dollar lol.

I misread that as "Fallout". I was like "Is the new one out or are they porting 1 and 2 to console or is this a really crappy Steam bundle?"

Gamespot is either getting lazy or is understaffed.  The release date listed in the upper right on this very page still says December 2013.

C'MON, MAN!

Shame this isn't coming to pc.

Fable 1 and 3 already exist so why not release 2 as well and bundle them all together?

There doesn't seem to be much special about this collection beyond the first game. It doesn't look like it will be worth buying and you are better off buying them all individually especially since you can find Fable 2&3 for under $10 fairly easily.


I don't feel a single HD remake of a game should go for $40. It should have been listed for $30 or less. Most HD remakes that start at $40 have 3 games in the package.

3rd game was FREE!! on xbox 360 store back a few months ago + you can get it for a $ or 2 in sale bins or online. WTF

Considering the first one is the only one that's any good.

The only game worth it in this bundle is the one that isn't out yet. Fable 3 was also free during the summer.

I don't really feel the Fable series warrants replaying. Fable 2 was pretty good. But the series never lived up to its promise.

$50 or less to be honest. I don't even think Fable Anniversary is worth $40, but I'm going to get it anyways. I already own Fable 2 and Fable 3, so I'm not wasting my time buying those again. If Fable 2 and Fable 3 was updated to 1080P and more content was added, I'd might get the trilogy, but that's a lot of memory that these games are going to take up. I'm down to 30GB of space left on a 250GB HDD.

I'm not paying shit for this if it's going to be digital-only. Even if it gets a physical release, that price is too high.

Fable 2 was brilliant , one of my fave games of last gen.

Fable 3 wasn't a patch on fable 2 but it was still not bad

Its worth whatever someone can buy all 3 individually, used, at Gamestop.

Fable 1 sucked. 


The series went downhill from there.

This is the most shallow RPG/Adventure series ever. This collection is worth maybe $10 to me. Who cares about this crap.

frylock1987

$20 for the HD Remake, $10 for 2 and $10 for 3.

For anyone who gets this: Play them backwards, that way it will seem like the series gets better.

Well I really thing Fable 1,2,3, should be for xbox1 as well xbox360.

Oh I see, SMART business move. 


For those that don't know Games for windows Live is shutting down soon (Which the fable games use) and MS has said they have no intention of "updating" it so that those that bought it can play it once GFWL is gone. 

It seems that if you want to enjoy the older fable games you will probably have to re-buy them in this bundle so you can play them without needing GFWL to do so.


I might have actually had an interest in this bundle but regardless of any new things it includes as someone who already owns the fable games on pc it's a slap in the face that previous owners will not be able to play them any more if they wish because MS has no plans to update it so it doesn't require gfwl.

1st of all $75 for the 3 games how about you pay me $75 to take it.

ok to be fair the 1st game people say its good ive not played it b4 so ya id buy an hd remake maybe for $20 as a download. 2nd game ive played was ok not the best game in the world did the job for a dry summer of gaming you can buy it for well under $5 in sale bin or online so y would i even want that game brand new when there is no remake of it. 3rd game was FREE!! on xbox 360 store back a few months ago + you can get it for a $ or 2 in sale bins or online. so to sum it up 1 is a maybe, 2 could care less about and 3 you couldnt pay me to take it i didnt even take it when it was free so y the hell would i want to buy it. the last year or 2 of gaming is making me sick of games and the gaming news its $60 this $20 microtransactions that. the f****** console war and comment boxs on websites like this one full of wee ball bags oo this consoles better than yours bulls**t i dont care about the consoles as long as the games i want to play are there. i cant wait for the next gen gaming where u dont even need a f****** console all you need is a tv,internet and controller. streaming is the future and we c that coming in the next 5 to 10 years.

$25.  Maby $30 if i'm feeling generous.

I want to say that Steam has already had this trilogy bundled together during quite a few steam sales in the past.. but  I might be wrong.

$30 and less. If i could get it for PC that'd be even better. I feel like $30 is fair with all the DLC and expansions included. I would like it for PC especially. It just bugs me than Fable and Fable 3 are on PC but 2 isn't and there really isn't any reason for it not to be.

This should be free for xbox live gold members.....and not a PENNY more.

After Fable 2 having a shitty ending and the lies leading up to what became Fable 3 I could give a rats ass about ever buying anything Lionhead makes ever again.

They're a bunch of liars.

The first Fable is alright but I can play that on PC already. Wish they'd fix the game breaking bug, though.

maybe i'd pay for a remake of the first one but the other 2 were pretty bad.

At the same time, those other HD re-releases going for $40 don't go to the same lengths that Fable Anniversary is going to. Lionhead completely re-skinned the game, and it looks great. I'm willing to pay that much for a single game that I really, really enjoyed the first time around. I did it for Halo Anniversary and didn't regret it.

@blackace 

I also have fable 2 and fable 3 and will get fable anniversary

@razrabbit They probably had both Fable 1 and Fable 3 on offer a few times but Fable 2 is not on PC at all and this bundle includes a new HD version of Fable 1 similar to Halo Anniversary

@disclawrence So the moral of the story is, don't buy into the hype, or grow up.

@Vidpci You should probably know what you are talking about before you talk crap about a game that hasn't even been released yet. Not sure since when a 5 player game has been considered an MMO.

@A8ADD0N@Toysoldier34While reading your post I was thinking about how I felt that way about Halo: Anniversary, glad you mentioned it. That was absolutely worth the $40 price tag.
