Default This kinda sucks...Fable II Limited Edition changed

This is a bummer, I think MS should drop the price of the LE package.

I posted this on another topic the other day to express my mild sadness. It was one of the better Limited Editions.

Has there been any word on how big the extra dungeon is? The only reason I could see keeping my LE preorder is if it's a pretty sizeable addition, but even then I'm sure it'll pop up on the marketplace before long.

cancelled my pre-order and just going to wait it out for someone to trade it in so I can get a used copy way cheaper. the $79 limited edition was a great deal. for $10 more, you'd get the figurine, 5 cards and don't know what else. but to me that itself was worth the extra $10. look at the big daddy figurine from bioshock. those figurines themselves sell for more than $10 easily. plus for those who always buy and collect the limited/collectors edition this is a let down.

The extra in-game content justifies the additional ten dollars for me. I am disappointed that they cut the other things out, though. If the MSRP hadn't been reduced I would have been angry.

printable to your printer with inferior stock or you can order prints with better stock? Anyway too many cuts in the packaging to lustify LE pricing. I was actually thinking of getting the LE since it was so sweet looking, terrible blunder on the part of MS.
