Scheduled to be released in 2008, Fable2 is set to offer a lot, according to the article on IGN.
What I find interesting is there’s going to be a XBLA game called Fable Pub in which your scores in the game will convert and contribute to cash in Fable 2.
Here’s the excerpt: "Speaking of money, it will cost about $100 million to buy everything in Albion. You can get a leg up on this by playing the Fable Pub XBLA game. The money earned in this game will carry over into Fable 2. In fact, once you are of age in the game, a mysterious stranger comes up to you and hands you a load of cash. So yes, you can start Fable 2 with a ridiculous amount of funds."
