Xbox LIVE Gold free next weekend

Next weekend, Microsoft will be holding a massive free Xbox LIVE Gold event for all to join in.

The Xbox LIVE Gold Unlock Weekend upgrades anyone with an Xbox LIVE account to Gold for a full weekend between 8th – 10th March for absolutely free.

Unlike other free weekends, however, this one will feature lots of additional extras. (Xbox 360, Xbox Live Arcade)

MS is having sale after sale, they're up to something!!!
Maybe I'm just paranoid.

Yes I noticed that also. Trying to win back some Xbox fans who are tired of their constant bulls***. Not trolling or anything, but MS don't really give anything back to their fans, and now this seems more like an act of desperation than a thank you. Coincidence that next-gen is knocking on our door? I think not. They are going to have to do a whole lot more than this to make me buy a '720'.

@BanBrother: your so strong-willed, I'm a weakling!!!
I have to get my Halo, Gears, Forza, Fable and XBLA games fix.

They have the big prime time Xbox Live event before Family Guy on Fox tomorrow night, supposed to be some sick Gears Judgment reveals and other things.

The games they have on sale this week were just insane, and free Xbox Live Gold for the weekend definitely has me thinking along the same lines as you. Something big is coming!

Two totally different things. Yours sounds like a childish cry, though. Kinda like " I'm not stupid, you're stupid".

Xbox owners are waking up to the no online till you pay scam that M$ force on them, If they all said no more crap and demand free online M$ would have to give them their online back.
