Microsoft are offering Xbox LIVE users who do not have a Gold account free access to the Gold services for this weekend only, but if you are in Europe you don’t get it.
This is what Major Nelson posted:
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the latest entertainment experiences on Xbox, this weekend is a great chance to give it a try. From Thursday, Nov. 29 through Sunday, Dec. 2, we’re unlocking Xbox LIVE Gold in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan and the United States.
All Xbox owners in these regions, regardless of their current subscription, will have access to online multiplayer gaming, (like Halo 4 Spartan Op) Internet Explorer, Video Kinect and our entire catalog of entertainment apps, during that time period.
So if you are in one of those regions and don’t have an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription, why not take advantage while you can.
