They are probably doing this to see how many people without Gold will go on to play for free and use the results to decide whether they will make the 720 free to play online or not.

I got to disagree with you there. Not only is this information pretty much irrelevant (how many people are going to try to play online if they don't know about the free weekend... thats right, zero), especially if you don't read online sites, but it goes without saying that free live would be more "successful" than paid. In either case, they've made a killing on Live and don't have a real reason to change that at the moment.

Yea I dont think MS are going to let go of the money they are making from live.

Funny how? Funny as in Xbox Live creates a revenue stream that keeps people in thier jobs and Microsoft not having to axe 10 000 people and shut down studios? That kinda funny?

Microsoft isn't hurting for money bud, think again.. They're one of the richest companies in the world. Xbox live is just a scheme they have set up to reach into more pockets of those gullible enough to pay for something that's free elsewhere.
