We've received a couple reports this evening that some
copies of the Fable II Limited Collector's Edition
package do not contain the cards required for the in-game DLC content
. A GameStop source tells us a company wide email notes that cases bearing an orange "48 hours of LIVE"' sticker include the cards, but copies without the sticker do not.
Although we've only heard about this being a GameStop issue so far, the same situation could be occurring at other retailers. We've contacted both Microsoft and GameStop for comment.
Allegedly customers are being told by GameStop to contact 1-800-4MYXBOX if they receive a copy of the CE without the card inside. We contacted the number and were informed that it was the correct place to call if we didn't receive the DLC card in the box. Midnight launches start in about 15 minutes on the East Coast, so we'll probably hear more about this issue soon.Update
: We've since learned this is a Microsoft issue
and that the company is "implementing a plan to address it" by Oct. 28. We'll make a new post when we find out exactly what that plan is.
[Thanks to those who helped with this.]
