Say, what?! Xbox Live Gold free this weekend?

Posted by Emory Kale
Microsoft, a company whose heart grew 3 sizes in anticipation of Valentine's Day, is giving away free access to all gameplay. Not for anyone but US and Canadian gamers, though.
 
Obviously, this is because the French don't need a special day to make love, the Spanish are are on heat all of the time, and the British and Germans are not sure what all the fuss is about anyhow.
 
So, in a few hours, from 12:01 pm PT Valentine's Day through 11:59 pm PT February 16, Sunday, if you are an Xbox Live subscriber, you get full free access.
 
And, no, it doesn't apply to Xbox One users because, they got too much love just getting a next gen platform for Christmas. This is for anyone who wants to play World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition, free with the Gold subscription, which happens to be released this weekend, too.
 
But, don't fret, there is a 33% discount on 12 months of Xbox Live Gold membership, dropping the price from $59.99 to $39.99.
