  1. In an effort to boost the numbers of Gold subscribers on Xbox Live and to celebrate a host of new features being added to the service, Microsoft is giving all Xbox 360 owners the chance to get mangled online by complete strangers for free. From the 20th of November until the 23rd, Silver members in the United States will be able to try out all the services available on Xbox Live Gold and see if they're worth the yearly fee.

  2. This is their way of getting more people with modified consoles to connect to Xbox Live so that they can be banned permanently as well as having their consoles crippled.
     
  3. Will this apply to New Zealand xbox users? If not all hail PS3 coz atleast u can play online for free

    MS is giving a new user the opportunity to explore on what Xbox live has to offer that no other platform can match...period!
     
  8. I agree. I'm no fan of microsoft but there's absolutely nothing negative about gold weekends. It just offers everyone a taste of online games for a weekend and if your console is modified, then you deserve to have it disabled.
     
  9. ps3 is way better cause its free!!!!AND THERE IS NO BS AT ALL the xbox live menu said free
    gold to all silvers from april 1st 2010 to april 5th 2010, guess what? such bs i am a silver and it wouldnt let me do online multiplayer when it said it would
