    Adventure role-playing game Fable III is now available on Xbox Live as a free download as a special lead-in to Microsoft's new Games With Gold promotion.

    The Fable III freebie offer ends June 30.

     

    As announced during Microsoft's E3 briefing last week, the Games With Gold promotion will begin in earnest on July 1. The Fable III offer is an unrelated bonus, Microsoft said.

     

    As part of the Games With Gold promotion, Microsoft will offer up two free Xbox 360 games per month, available beginning on the 1st and the 16th day of every month.

     

    The first two games after Fable III will be Assassin's Creed II and Halo 3, though it's not clear which will release first. Once downloaded, players can keep these titles "no matter what," Microsoft said.

     

    Microsoft's future ambitions may revolve around the Xbox One, but the company does not plan to abandon the Xbox 360 anytime soon. Xbox boss Phil Spencer said last month that he believes the platform will "be very vibrant for many years."

     

    A redesigned Xbox 360 model was announced during Microsoft's E3 briefing last week and is available now.

    Sony's PlayStation 4 games will be sold for the same price as current-generation titles.

    Sony has confirmed that the pricing for its first-party PlayStation 4 titles will be $59.99 in North America, the same price point as PlayStation 3-era titles.

    Speaking to Shacknews, a Sony representative said "we have announced the pricing for our first-party lineup of PS4 launch and launch window games. All four titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall, DriveClub, Knack, and inFamous: Second Son are all $59.99." Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton previously said in February that PS4 titles would range from 99 cents to $60.

     

    Microsoft recently confirmed that first-party Xbox One titles would also be sold for $59.99.

     

    Third-party publishers--such as Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Activision--have yet to formally price their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles.

     

    During its E3 2013 press conference last week, Sony confirmed that the PlayStation 4 would launch later in 2013 for $399/€399/£349. The Xbox One, meanwhile, will launch in November for $499/€499/£425.

    Open-world zombie survival title State of Decay has sold over 500,000 copies on Xbox Live Arcade since its release two weeks ago, Microsoft has said.

    Microsoft adds that State of Decay has become "the fastest selling original game" on XBLA.

     

    Jeff Strain, founder of developer Undead Labs, added that the PC version of State of Decay will be coming to Steam and that the game will be getting its own sandbox mode. "I can tell you we're working on a sandbox mode designed to be a pure survival simulation," he said.

     

    "Beyond that," added Strain, "all I can say is we pay very close attention to what fans of the game are asking for, and their needs will largely guide our development priorities, so stay tuned."

     

    After a broken update previously caused problems, Seattle-based Undead Labs is currently working on State of Decay's second title update, which should shortly be sent off to Microsoft for certification.

    Total War Rome 2: How To Lose Friends and Assassinate People

    The Total War series has never struggled to convey its epic subject matter. Accompanying the announcement of each new game in the long-running series are myriad screens and videos that depict hundreds of soldiers cleaving bloody carnage on battlefields throughout history. Clearly, The Creative Assembly has chosen a fitting name for its most prized and famous franchise; one that cuts right to the heart of what the franchise is all about.

     

    Of course, any fool can wield a sharp stick and so, as the series has grown in stature, ambition and complexity, so too has the quieter, more devious side of the war effort. It’s unsurprising, then, that diplomacy and administration are vital facets of Total War: Rome 2 and that the title further broadens the scope for effective empire governance and canny politicking with a host of new micromanagement tools.

    Our Problem with the Mad Max Video Game

    Our Problem with the Mad Max Video Game

    When the Mad Max trailer debuted at Sony’s E3 media conference last week, many Australians felt a flicker of national pride. For those unfamiliar with the film franchise, it is inherently, undeniably Aussie, set in a Down Under dystopia where the dusty outback serves as the playground for vehicular warfare between Australian cars. A young Mel Gibson was the Australian star. George Miller was the Australian director. The first Max helped usher in the Australian New Wave.

     

    It was a surprise then, at Warner Bros.’ Behind Closed Doors demo at E3, to hear Max speak not with an Aussie twang but a gravelly American growl, a cookie-cutter ‘tough-video-game-angry-man’ accent. Surely developer Avalanche Studios isn’t seriously stripping the franchise of its Australian roots? Surely we’re not yet at a point where all game protagonists need to be white-washed into a collective pool of generic American anti-heroism?
