Yes, you heard that right. Free Gold. Xbox Live Gold that is. The service will be free to all players starting today, 8th March and lasting all the way up until the end of Sunday, the 10th of March.

So, what does this include?

Well, it includes all multiplayer capability, all weekend, and entertainment dashboard apps, although some additional subscriptions may be required for this aspect.

What else?

There are some special multiplayer events including Double XP, prizes to be grabbed and the chance to play against those gaming guru Devs at Rockstar Games.

What if I’m already a Gold member?

Don’t worry, you won’t miss out. Double XP is on offer for specific games and there are some avatar items to be awarded for play during this weekend’s events.

For more detailed information, head on over to Xbox Live and enjoy the weekend.
