All praise the shining golden calf of Ballmer! Microsoft is bestowing free Xbox Live Gold weekend upon North America, Latin America and Japan.
The window of golden opportunity kicks off at 10:00 ET today and runs until 13:00 ET on Monday, April 22nd. Should you dip your toes into the golden pool, you'll actually be able to play those games you bought online! NNot only that, but you'll be able to use features of your Xbox that have hitherto been inaccesible, such as Video Kinect, and the full range of entertainment apps.
Let's have some actual value for that £35 next-gen please Microsoft. Jeez. [Major Nelson]
