Join in on the services this weekend with free Xbox Live Gold status

 
Many of the Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners know the benefits of upgrading your subscription to Xbox Live Gold, but if you are among the few that still haven’t made the jump, now is your chance to test out the service free of charge.
 
Microsoft has run similar promotions in the past, starting this weekend Xbox Live Gold status will be given to Xbox 360 consoles, this will allow you to access all of the Xbox entertainment applications and of course grant you access to the online multiplayer gameplay. This offer is for Canada and the United States.
 
If you have an Xbox One, for some reason you got left out, and we aren’t sure why. The announcement came from Microsoft frontman Major Nelson, who didn’t go into detail on why Xbox One was left out of the popular promotional offerings.
 
You can set your watches for 12:01 a.m. PST Friday, the promotion will extends through 11:59 p.m. PST on Sunday.
