We’ve reported yesterday that several GameStop customers complained regarding the lack of codes for in-game items in the Fable II Collector’s Edition and only those copies with an orange sticker had all the stuff promised. Today Microsoft issued a response, stating that the problem only affects a small amount of copies and there are plans to solve the problems by October 28.

Microsoft said: “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.”

Well, what can I say? Things like that just happen, it was an accident and I’m sure it’s not Microsoft who has to be held responsible for the situation. Of course, it’s pretty bad for those who already have the Fable II CE with the missing codes, but things will be solved ASAP.
