Xbox Live Gold is Free This Weekend

Xbox Live Gold is Free This Weekend

Starting today, Microsoft is hosting a free Xbox Live Gold weekend — so cancel all your plans and get on that, it’s going to be cold outside anyway (for those of us up here in the Nor’East).

Silver members can take advantage of LoveFilm, video Kinect, and other new features recently added to XBLA. Zune Video is also offering some sweet deals including free content and discounts on select movie titles. Anyone who logs in this weekend will also be given a shot at winning an Xbox Christmas entertainment package including a Samsung TV, Xbox 360 Kinect bundle, 8,000 Microsoft Points and other sweet Xbox-flavored treats.

Enjoy, Xbox owners!
