Xbox Live free for Xtival '09 Microsoft's virtual festival, Xtival '09 runs from May 1 to 4 (this weekend) and during that time frame, Xbox Live Gold Membership will be free to all Xbox Live users (at least in the UK).
"We don't think anyone should miss out on the treats we've got lined-up this year, which is why we're giving everyone Xbox Live Gold membership FREE for the entire weekend," the Xtival page reads.

"There are even bigger competitions and tournaments to rock, and loads of exclusive HD movies, music and game downloads to check out - so round up all your friends and get ready for what is set to be the best Xtival yet!," it continues.

Xtival '08 offered up early release of a high-definition music video from The Prodigy's Invaders Must Die album, plus exclusive Franz Ferdinand, Watchmen and Oasis content.

Free?! Microsoft!?

This would fit perfect as an April Fool's.

But seriously. 4 days? Pathetic. At least a week.

Well, I think the idea behind this is similar to the free game weekends on steam. Let people try it over the weekend, and then about 10 to 20% of the ones that tried it will sign up for a full year of xbox live.

God forbid they give away service for free, like Sony does.

Live is simply going to go down and pee off the people who paid for it...
