If you’ve got an Xbox 360, and you’ve always wondered what it is like to have an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription, you’re in luck. Microsoft will be giving all Xbox users a taste of Xbox LIVE Gold for free this weekend. I guess in conjunction with the dashboard update that was released earlier this week, they want everybody to experience the full benefits of what a premium account can give in hopes of roping them in for good.
In addition to free Xbox LIVE Gold this weekend, Zune Video will also be offering film deals and free content this weekend. You’ll be able to purchase selected titles for 40% off and stream some free previews of movies like the Hangover 2. Those of you who log in this weekend will also get a chance to win an Xbox Christmas entertainment package that includes a Samsung TV, an Xbox 360 Kinect bundle, 8,000 Microsoft Points and more. It looks like Xbox LIVE Silver members are going to have a ball of a time this weekend.
