Microsoft Slightly Addresses Missing Fable II LE Codes

Illustration for article titled Microsoft Slightly Addresses Missing Fable II LE Codes

What McWhertor posted last night as a rumor is definitely not a rumor. I found out last night after getting my Fable II Depressing Limited Edition from GameStop that yes, the card was missing from the game. It was pathetic enough to go from that majestic-looking LE package to a game in a paper sleeve, and now this? Yay. Here's what Microsoft has to say about the issue on Xbox.com.

We have identified that some copies of the "Fable II" Limited Collector's Edition are missing the downloadable content (DLC) cards, which give access to in-game bonus content. This represents a small fraction of the total number of "Fable II" games shipped and sold, and is contained to the Limited Collector's Edition of the game in North America. We are currently investigating the scope of this situation and regardless the outcome of the investigation, we are implementing a plan to address it. We will have a means to deliver replacement codes by Oct 28th so please check back then. We apologize for the inconvenience.

It represents a small fraction, yet they are currently investigating the scope of the situation? So how do they know it's a small fraction if they are still investigating? Good old doublespeak. Anyway, salvation hopefully comes on the 28th. Some copies of Fable II Limited Collector's Edition missing downloadable content cards [Xbox.com - Thanks Nicky!]

"It represents a small fraction" = "We have millions of copies out there, but have only gotten reports of about 2000, so we know it isn't a widespread problem."

"Investigating the scope of the situation" = "We're trying to find out what batch, location, warehouse, etc that the missing cards had in common so we can identify and recall the ones are are missing codes without opening and re-shrink wrapping millions of boxes, so if you buy the game in the future you won't have to worry."
