If you’ve always wanted to check out the latest entertainment experiences on Xbox 360, now is your chance. Starting tomorrow (Friday April 19) morning at 10am ET/ 7:00am PT, we’re unlocking Xbox LIVE Gold in the U.S., Latin America, Japan and Canada* throughout the weekend until 1p ET/10am PT on Monday, April 22nd.
All Xbox owners in these regions, regardless of their current Xbox LIVE subscription status, will have access to online multiplayer gaming, Video Kinect, and our entire catalog of entertainment apps.* Here are few of my top recommendations to check out:
- “Hemlock Grove” – the new Netflix original series premieres on Friday, with the full run of episodes. It’s the perfect weekend for a marathon viewing.
- Xbox Tournaments with Virgin Gaming – try out a free-to-enter tournament with “EA SPORTS™ FIFA 13,” “NBA 2K13,” “EA SPORTS™ Madden NFL 13” and “EA SPORTS™ NHL® 13.”
- “Call of Duty Black Ops II” – with weapons double XP for a limited time.
- “Borderlands 2” – Try out this special Golden Key Code: KTW3T-ZXXS5-JBSJF-5FJT3-6TB9X
To redeem, at the Borderlands 2 Main Menu, select Extras, then SHiFT Code. Hurry though, this will only be available throughout the Xbox Live Gold Unlock weekend. See Gearbox for assistance.
- “Assassin’s Creed 3” and “Far Cry 3” – with double XP for a limited time
Get your marathon entertainment and gaming fix now and let me know on Monday all the new things you tried.
