Microsoft Hosting Free Xbox Live Gold Weekend

Silver members may notice something screwy when they log in to Xbox Live today. Don't panic – everyone's getting the Gold treatment through the weekend, at no cost.

The promotion began at 9 a.m. Central, and it will continue through noon Monday. While it's active, you can check out online multiplayer, stream video on Netflix (provided you have a Netflix account), and access a variety of other Xbox audio and video apps.

Games including Assassin's Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Far Cry 3 are holding special double XP multiplayer promotions over the weekend, so this is a great time for Silver Members try them out if they haven't already.
