As many of us prepare to take a few days off around during the Holiday Season, I wanted to let you know that 1 v 100 Live will have a special Holiday episode on December 26th @ 9p ET/6p PT that everyone can play…for free. 1 v 100 Live will be free for all Xbox LIVE members (Gold and Silver) from Dec. 24th to the 28th (in regions where it is available.)

Additionally, later today when you sign in to Xbox LIVE, watch for the brand new Games Music Marketplace. Look for specific Music stores for games like Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Lips.

When you’re browsing your dashboard, you can enter the the stores from this image:
