Are you one of those individuals who refuses to pay for Xbox LIVE Gold since the PSN is free, do you have “Free Xbox LIVE” as your motto in the hope that someone might one day see this and change the whole policy of Xbox LIVE subscriptions on your behalf?
Well, the good news is that if you’ve been dying to get some multiplayer or other Achievements that require you to be online you will soon have a whole weekend to do so. Xbox LIVE are hosting a free Xbox LIVE Gold weekend from March 8th – 10th 2013 which is sponsored by Bioshock Infinite – the upcoming game from Irrational Gamees and 2K Games to be released on March 26th 2013.
During the weekend event if you play Halo 4 for one hour you will rewarded with a Halo Avatar item, take a ride through the Colorado roads in Forza Horizon and get gifted with the McLaren MP4-12C. Far Cry 3 is offering up a Double XP weekender and whole range of games will be tempting you with bonuses to win you over into taking the plunge into Xbox LIVE Gold.
