Man Wins Autographed Fable II Xbox, Still Loses

1 min read


Around the middle of May this year, Fable II developers Lionhead ran a competition to coincide with the release of their “See the Future” DLC. The prize was to be a unique Fable II branded Xbox 360 console, signed by the Peter Molyneux himself. A fellow going by the internet monicker of NeoxDonut won the highly sought-after prize – only later to be smacked in the face by the fist of disappointment.

It’s not what’ you’re thinking – It didn’t red ring on him. No, the *ahem* fabled machine – it turns out – is a chimera of sorts, the bastard result of a monumental cock-up. The hanckocked shell, you see, is that of a first generation Xbox 360 – y’know..the old ones without HDMI. The guts? Yup…newer and with HDMI. The end result is that the hapless winner is left with a barely useable console.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
