    From an European (non-UK) User:
    Standard Edition in US 59.99$ x (Dollars to Euros conversion rate) 0.795 = 47.69 € which is not equal 64.99 € … game not valid for European Consoles :-(
    Standard Edition in UK 44.99 pounds x (Pounds to Euros conversion rate) 1.1487 = 51.68 € which is not equal 64.99 €…oh, this game is valid for my console…should I buy my country’s SKU or UK’s ones?

    PS: Same can be done for Games On Demand…

    Fable 3 available on PC version!? why Fable 2 not?
    and they say we can import savegame from fable2 to experiences something differences in fable 3 ..that mean how can PC-version import a savegame they never have one

  • Jaysonguy

    Well I see a Limited Edition in my future.
    I really liked the Halo armor in the last one, I was hoping because Reach is going to be huge this year we’d see a revisiting.

  • davidkenobi

    GalfordDWeiler => Everything is more expansive in Europe, also video games. It has always been like that and it always be. It’s about market, economics, finance, politic. But it’s a problem. Though you can buy games wherever you want.

    The Collector looks very nice !!

  • moocow21

    Not on Steam? Certainly not unexpected, but definitely a disappointment… :(

  • Surly x Duff

    After the fiasco over Fable 2’s Limited Edition, I will be sticking to the regular version, thanks. In fact, that experience soured me on special editions in general.

  • GalfordDWeiler

    @davidkenobi Yes, I know…it’s just that today I wanted to write it somewhere. ;-)

    Fortunately, UK products work here (UK is not part of Euro-zone – economy-wise – but it is part of Europe PAL zone). And as I do, lots of people in Spain do it as well (the average discount from buying here is above 50%, at least in the games I select).

    I am curious if there is any statistic about the number of sold items in UK from other parts of Europe.

    What a boring CE, looks like I will pass on this one.


    The LCE goodies sound interesting, but only if they don’t screw them up like last time. I still want my Hobbe figure, Molyneux!

  • KingMathers 313

    @GalfordDWeiler: Yeah it’s been like this for a long time, but the conversion rate changes from time to time. So if you always take the US$ price (which is often the country of origin), and calculate the prices for other markets from these prices, you must not forget that this will result in a great fluctuation in non US markets. Nowadays, most games are priced at about 60 € for the normal (non LCE) edition. Yes, in this case the price is slightly higher, but you will probably be able to find it on the internet for about 60€. Also I do not know if the US Prices already include VAT, which the Europeans prices do.

  • a1984darkboy

    Definitely picking this up. I just recently started playing Fable 2 and I am having nothing short of a blast.

  • Shonk

    just do what i used to do before the £ went down the pan
    i used to buy all my consoles and new release games
    from amazon germany for cheaper

    buy them from amazon uk and its a result

  • Fufz

    In which world $59.99 equal €64.99 ?

  • Xlrking

    I dont really know if i want Fable 3, i honestly hope it dosent have a dissapointing boss at the end like the second.

  • Kroesis

    It’ll be the standard version for me and only when the game’s come down in price. I purchased Fable believing the hype of Molyneux only to be left a bit disappointed. The game itself was OK for what it was. Fable 2 was a chance for Molyneux to redeem himself, although I was more sceptical of his hype this time round, and once again I felt a little deflated but less so than Fable.

    Perhaps Fable 3 will be the gem, the game that Fable I and II should have been… but I’ll wait to see this time around.

  • kodoo


    In which world does everything cost the same everywhere?

  • NEW P4TH

    Awesome thanks for the info Major. It looks like Ill be picking up the limited edition version of Fable 3. I really enjoy the Fable games so I expect the 3rd one to be equally fun if not more entertaining than the last one.

  • Logic Squirrel

    Hope it has online co-op, i also hope they fix online co-op fable II co-op features made it almost unplayable at times and a pain.

  • WinterSnowblind

    We’ve already seen what they’ve done to fix the co-op, unforunately it seems to mean they’ve axed splitscreen play all together, which is very disappointing, in my opinion.

  • chiruno99

    I’ll get the good old regular edition. I never get fancy playing cards because I nver play with them or look at them.

  • GalfordDWeiler

    @KingMathers 313 – Yeah, I know about the rates. I take them from Wall Street Journal page when I am about to buy something from Amazon in order to get an approximate. It just that the situation amazes me…I am still seeing Bayonetta at 69,95 € in some top video game shops here in Spain and I got one from UK’s Amazon (not always the cheapest but never had any problem with them and received in less than a week) for 22 € shipping included. Today just wanted to let it flow out of my fingers.

    At the very least I can take advantage of the low prices in UK for several interesting games and gadgets (even with the Pounds to Euro rate being higher than 1.1)

  • wolfzero01

    so is this going to end up being gimped like the Fable II collector’s edition was? it pissed me off when they cut things out (the Hobbe figure and changed the packaging) & screwed up the bonus content

  • SCS 85

    Good to see a PC version but I don’t know if I can trust MS with their PC games right now.

  • mccalejk

    @SCS 85, MS doesn’t make any games. They just publish them.

  • metallicorphan

    will the DLC eventually become available for regular peeps…seems off to miss out on a whole region if you miss out on getting the Limited edition

  • Kroesis

    Not sure but I’m guessing that, if it’s a significant region, it will.. eventually.. and for a cost. Mind you, that “region” might only be a small area and a different looking equivalent to it might be in the game anyway so normal edition player might not be missing much. Pure speculation by me though.

  • UnsocialAl

    $70 canadian ill wait for it to hit craigslist
    why cant they just fix the price at 60 each this 15% markup is bullshit

  • The Grim Heaper

    I’ll be getting the Limited Edition. I love the Fable series, disappointing to some or not!

  • DavidGX

    PC version for me most likely.

  • r3dreck

    Fable II sucked, no way I’m getting another.

  • KP ScuzzyBunny

    I’m a little surprised they didn’t throw in some kind of Natal (or whatever the name is to be) reference, since this is one of the first games to incorporate it. Definitely going to pre-order, but as it stands, there aren’t really any “make or break” pieces of content in the CE. Fable 2 was jam-packed (even after stripping it), as it came with Pub Games ($10), the Halo outfit (exclusive to CE), and weapons (exclusive to CE) in addition to the bonus disc. The cards and coin seem nice, but another tie-in arcade game would make it a must-have (especially with the head start like Pub Games had!)

  • a1984darkboy

    Might pick the CE up. Fable 2 is fantastic from what I’m playing right now.
