Vlj - maybe be free but have you tried playing black ops online recently. I've given up for the moment, thankfully i have an Xbox as well.

Hot Deal, as anything for Free usually is.

If you own an XBOX 360 Console but don't have a Gold Membership this is a great way for you to experience what you are missing out on.

You can usually get a 12 Month Gold Membership for £30, so for £2.50 a Month or just over 8p per day it is well worth it.

last one didnt work

It's a good deal for silver members who want to download the Crysis 2 demo which becomes available this week to Gold members only.

Dont you get a month free when you set up a new account?

Think so but you can only have so many accounts linked to one machine can't you?! Also get 1mth free when you get your RROD fixed

Or you could get a better console and play online all the time for free

I have my main account plus i have set up three new ones in the past just to get the free month if i was short of money when renewal was due.

I'm surprised no one has suggested why MS are giving away a free trial. Bet they get exactly what they wanted from it with the latest dashboard update.

The latest dash update the other day re-added boot straight to disc when you switch on the xbox and very slightly tinkered the gamercards.

Yup, that's the reason gave us punters.

But they also added their latest "anti-piracy black magic detection thingymajiggy" for naughty consoles. The free weekend as well as trying to attract some new paying customers undoubtedly is an underhanded method of weeding out some more naughty people.

Expect a blanket ban I'd say around four weeks before Easter I reckon.

And on a side note as I'm already a fully paid up Goldmember eating pancakes and having a shmoke, I wonder if I get a 48 hour extension to my expiry date?

Hmmm. Me thinks that XboxSucks is another member in disguise.... whom maybe commented earlier?

Are there really people who are not gold members?



Lots and lots, about half of all XBOX owners...

all the ps3 fanboys are on here again saying their psn is free.yeh you know why its free?its not in the same league as xbox live.go and look for your ps3 bargains instead of making stupid comments.

Thanks for the heads up. Xbox Live is way better than PSN. The only good thing about PSN is that there are less kids shouting through the headset.

I have no gold. I have only used free access.

PSN is free? so are herpes and tbh I think I'd prefer herpes to PSN but thats just me.

PSN vs XBL?

I'd rather pay for steak, than eat kebab out the rubbish bin for free.
