Xbox Live free in U.S. this weekend Something to do during Thanksgiving weekend.
From today (Thursday, November 24) until Sunday, Xbox 360 owners in the United States will be able to have benefits of Xbox Live Gold membership without having to pay for it (cue the PlaySation Network comments).

That means multiplayer gaming without a gold subscription while the Turkey settles. You will also be able to use other Xbox Live services such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, Facebook,, Zune Music Pass and ESPN.

It probably goes without saying but this doesn't apply to anywhere outside the United States, being an American holiday.

Long live the King and his silver bullet.
