To celebrate the ability to kill all of your friends in a brand new game, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, Xbox Live is free for the weekend. And not that crummy Silver service either; that's free all the time. Nope, we're talking about the heavenly gates of Gold membership, being swung wide open for all you have-me-nots.
You'll be able to log on to the Gold service without spending a brass razoo, from 3pm Friday, March the 9th. Then spend the entire weekend in a sleep-deprived frag-fest until 9:59pm on Sunday night, the 11th of March.
