If you’ve been hankerin’ for some online multiplayer on your Xbox 360 but you don’t have Gold status, then today is your lucky day (also tomorrow). Xbox Live Gold is free this weekend for everyone on Xbox 360.
Between now and 11:59 PDT Sunday night, all Xbox 360 users can play online multiplayer regardless of their Xbox Live status. Keep in mind that other Gold features like Deal of the Week and Games with Gold are still only available for Gold subscribers.
An Xbox Live Gold membership typically costs $60 for one year. Which comes out to $5 a month. Which is about 17 cents a day. You know, in case you were wondering.
Normally I’d be all over this, but there’s nothing on Xbox 360 right now that would be more fun than Super Smash Bros. Maybe next time, Microsoft.
