Free Gold (Four Day) Weekend Starts Today On Xbox Live

This weekend being Thanksgiving weekend in the US, there'll be millions of Xbox gamers lounging around, sleeping off food hangovers. What better way to spend it, then, than with a free weekend of Xbox Live.

And it's not just a weekend! It's the entire mini-holiday period, meaning from today (Thursday November 24) through to Sunday November 27, anyone without a gold subscription will be able to get their multiplayer game on.

They'll also get access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, Facebook, ESPN, Video Kinect, Last.fm and Zune Music Pass.

If you're outside the US and think this is a pretty sweet deal, sorry, it's only available for "the 50 United States or Washington, D.C."
