Fable II Costs an Extra Ten Dollars

While I’m loving Fable II (website), and have plenty more good things two write about it, I found something very unsavory while Achievement-hunting.  All Xbox 360 games comes with a set of Achievements which raise your gamer score and grant you e-peen.  These add up to about 1000 points per game and are split up in any way the developers choose.  Downloadable content sometimes adds new Achievements to a game.

Fable II has an Achievement you can only get if you have purchased the Xbox Live Arcade title Fable II: Pub Games.  It’s a dog trick that you learn after winning a tournament in the $10 XBLA game, which preceded Fable II’s release.

There is a second way to get the Achievement: buy it from another player online.  I don’t see this as a good alternative – I have no intention of trading with other players on the internet, especially just to avoid a $10 surcharge.

For shame, Lionhead.  Charging me an extra $10 to get an achievement in a game I already spent $60 for is ridiculous.
