FYI...just downloaded successfully, 6 hours on the clock, but you have to go through the EA Access App to get it. I also noticed that the "SuperBowl Edition" of the full game is available for only $24 through the XBL Game Store. It includes Madden cash/points if interested.


Note: At release, this game was available for $40 on sale then had a trade-in value of $48. Long live physical media! Nice to revisit for free.

Not exactly Xbox One related but I think we may have the only console that already has the app (could be wrong):

Sweet! I really just want the goalie view. Nice skills by S. Crosby though.

But...the...questions later involve things like:
  • Just now?
  • I waited my whole life for this?
  • For real?
  • It's about time old people!?!
This is no big deal for the kids...it's expected.

Its time to really make it happen people! Keep console gaming alive!
For the kids...

Wouldn't this be similar to a number of games not supporting multiple displays because it gives those with more displays an advantage?

It's up to the dev to determine where to draw the line. I seriously doubt cross platform will be an issue for fable. The only situation where it's really an issue at all is twitch first person shooters like cod, and the obvious answer there is not to let mouse/kb players mix with controller players. Im sure there's some PC players out there willing to use a controller to play with console friends. Maybe some console players wouldn't mind hooking up a mouse/kb either.

I think that Fable Legends multiplayer is co-op only. (You can be a villain and set up traps for the players fighting their way through but it's not PvP combat).

Fable Legends is kind of like Evolve. You're either the villain fighting the legends or the legends fighting the villain.

I was watching a video where they said "Xbox One" and it turned on my Xbox.

So I tried it myself and it works! So if "Xbox, On" doesn't work for you, try out "Xbox One."

Probably doesn't make a difference, but I'm in the preview program for the dashboard.
