Taken from another forum I frequent:

Microsoft have today announced a new online-only event for Xbox 360 owners, named Xtival 07. The event, which runs from the 23rd to the 26th of November will provide exclusive downloads, competitions and more for Xbox 360 owners, including something rather funky

FREE Xbox Live Gold for the duration of the event!
All you need to do to take advantage of this promotion, is plug your 360 into your network. Youll instantly find any Silver accounts have been converted to Gold for the duration of the event. Only if youre in Europe, though!


It's the first deal I've posted please go easy on me!!

Not only that but the days that live is down for maintenance:-(

could this be a pre-cursor to them actually utilising marketplace now?
#8
I didn't no either, thanks OP!

Why dont you phone up MS and ask for an 11pence per day refund for live being down?

Less than that as i got 12months for £17 last year as well with pro evo 5 and headset
#11
HAHA I had thought that may be the case. Anyway regardless If its to maintain the system and bring us updates I can live with being off line maybe 3 or 4 days a year.

And as for the free trial days, pfft so what If it helps bring new people for me to race then thats fine by me also.
#12
Great deal.

I'm already on live and its the best online gaming service i've used. Hopefully a few free days access will encourage more people to get online to compete against on Halo3 / Team Fortress 2 - the 2 best online experiences available right now (yes yes halo3 sp is mediocre but the mp is awesome).
#13
Another tactic by microsoft for the next stage of banning?
suspended#14
Well, if people mod their consoles to steal games, then it's their fault if they get banned imo.
Anyway, lets not argue. I really can't be bothered! :p

i didnt know thanks for the heads up

And its great they way MS do the maintenance so that they do it early hours in the morning USA time to cause less hassle but it works out 6pm onwards in the UK when live goes down at the worst time for UK gamers

USA aren't ahead of us in time, they are behind us (5-8 hours depending on where in the US you mean).

Nope. Redemption codes for Arcade games are unique, so only work once.
If you want to get the Arcade games, then you have to buy them.

Just to clarify for the unitiated:

Xbox Live Silver is a standard FREE Xbox Live account that gets your 360 online, that lets you download demos, Arcade games etc.

Xbox Live Gold is what lets you play online, so the free weekend gives Silver account holders a few days free online gaming.

thats great and everything, but i get free xbox live anyway.

but using this compotition: http://www.keepingittwisted.com/xbox_promo_landing.aspx

you can enter as many times as you like, and get a free complimentary 48 hour trial. I have entered 50+ times, it only takes about 10 secs each time.

And now i have a notepad file full of 48 hour xbox live codes, - each time i want to play online, I just enter a code.

From my Xbox after entering the code:
"This code is not redeemable in your region."

No surprise there, it's for US accounts.
Just tried it on a US account, works fine. Doesn't give you a proper gold sub though, just the ability to play games online (admittedly the only thing it doesn't get you is access to time-delayed Gold demos)
#29
Hrmm this is strange, it works on my account ok.

How does the console know if its premium or not?

isnt it just a matter of them sticking a hard drive in the box, or not.

(other than having a silver plastic cd button too..)

I never got a free month when I first went online with my XBOX 360, it asked for (and took) a payment straight away.

Still, I currently have a Gold subscription until about April next year if I remember correctly, so I don't have to worry about it yet.

From what I remember it will tell you you can either have a silver account or will ask for payment for a gold account. If you refuse the gold and just choose the silver it will carry on and create a silver account. Immediately after making it it will tell you you have a months gold trial.

This will work for 4-5 silver profiles I think per xbox, or at least it did a year ago.

I have a question....sorry if its been asked before....

I have yet to sign up to Live with my new xbox360 and therefore have a months free trial due to me....

How will this 'weekend freebie' affect my eligibility for the months trial?
Anyone know? Or should I just activate the month trial before the 'freebie weekend' and forget about those 3-4 extra days I might otherwise have got?

Also have a 48hr trial code from my Halo3. Will I still be able to use this code after the 'freebie weekend' and/or after the month trial?

well I think that as soon as you connect your Xbox to the network and set up silver live -it automatically gives you 1 month of free gold so it probably won't give you those 3-4 days anyway as you would surely have to use up your free month first.

As for your 48hr trial you can use that at anytime after the trials I had live for a year and used a 48hr a few days after it ran out and it was fine!
