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.

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.

The Xbox on command has gotten a lot better for me. Now it gets it on the first try most of the time for me.

After ignoring it not working for months for me, for the last 3 weeks I've been checking the settings every other time thinking the power save was set wrong because it doesn't work for me when every other command does. Glad to know I'm not crazy, or doing something wrong. I'm going to go try "Xbox One" right now...

If they could eliminate at least 95% of the mass I could see this. But otherwise I would think most people have no desire to wear something so huge on the head. Heck many people have issues wearing extremely light, passive 3D glasses.

Hey!! It worked here too. I didn't realize Xbox One would turn them on.

The difference with this is that the real world applications are compelling enough to businesses that it can stick around in an expensive and unwieldy form and eventually develop into something consumer friendly, like the PC, cell phone etc. It might take a decade or more but this will eventually be the size of a regular pair of eyeglasses. Passive 3d glasses were light but they served little purpose beyond entertainment. They were neat but they weren't useful. This is a way bigger deal than that.
