Xbox Live Gold free this weekend for NA and Japan

free gold weekend

In a rare showing of actual customer consideration by a huge corporation, Microsoft has announced that it has enabled free access to Xbox Live Gold for Xbox 360 users in America, Canada, Latin America, and Japan for this weekend only.

The announcement, made on the Xbox website, tells that all those without a current Gold subscription in the mentioned regions can enjoy all the benefits of one for a brief period. This includes access to online multiplayer for video games, as well as access to other services such as Netflix and Hulu (you’ll still need an active subscription for those). In addition, Black Ops II, Assassin’s Creed III, and Far Cry 3 will all be having a Double XP weekend at the same time, while Borderlands 2 players will be able to input a code for free gold keys that can lead to rare loot.

The free weekend is going on now, and will be running until Monday at 10 a.m. See you online!
