In another attempt to market and celebrate the upcoming release of Halo 3, all Xbox Live users will get a free upgrade to Gold status from the 25th through the 27th at no cost. You don't even have to buy Halo 3 to be eligible.

Aces. I've decided not to get Gold as I'm off to uni and I won't have time to play it, but at least I can have a few days of it to keep me going. :)

That's pretty cool. I guess they just want everybody to feel how it is to play online, and maybe it will encourage more people to get Gold.

It's about time they did this again! The last time they did this was for E3 06.

Does anyone know if you get 3 days free even if you already payed for xbox live?

Sweet! I'll be trying to grab some easy online achievements.

I believe this promotion is just for silver accounts. If you already have a gold account then you're unaffected.

This might be an easy way to boost for achievements if you have 2 gold accounts for Halo 3.

Time for some GRAW achivements me thinks.

If you do not have a Gold membership...

while i am losing XBL gold sometime in the next 2 weeks or something, i also have like 5 48 hours codes so i will be setting those up on the weekends and playing online then because i have to get my grades up to get gold back. This lets me play online without using a 48 hours code:woop:

That's pretty sweet!

I don't understand why they're doing it for Halo 3, since it's not even like, directly related to it, but you can't complain!

Maybe to make up for some of those Xbox Live service days AKA the people that calculated Microsoft owed them a couple of cents.

sweet! cant wait

Wow. at first i thought that they were giving away year subscriptions for live i was like wow lucky people don't have to buy live. But then you people say its only for the weekend and i was like yeah there had to be something, not just give away year subscriptions. lol

Yah, this only goes for the people with silver so it wont effect me.
