Free Xbox LIVE Weekend and be a part of a World Record Attempt

Be a part of a World Record!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to remind everyone that this weekend is a Free Gold Weekend for European Xbox LIVE members. That means Xbox LIVE Free members will have access to features normally reserved for Gold Members….PLUS EVERYONE* can help make a Guinness World record attempt through Kinect Sports this Saturday, April 23rd.

Marking a free weekend of entertainment on Xbox LIVE, dubbed Xbox Nations, Kinect Sports players around the globe will join together and attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the ‘largest online 100m sprint’ at 1pm ET on Saturday, April 23. (Find out what time in your region) Players can participate by jumping on Xbox LIVE, firing up Kinect Sports, and running a 100-meter dash event at 1pm ET. Each and every runner will be rewarded with an exclusive Xbox and Guinness World Record Avatar t-shirt

Remember, Join in the fun at 1p ET/10a PT/6p GMT

More details (and pictures of Avatar t-shirt you’ll get) here

 

*Kinect Sports multiplayer will be unlocked for All Xbox LIVE members in all regions so they can help the world record attempt.

    Don’t you mean 1PM EDT? The even says its 1PM New York time – However this is a silly thing. What people do to get in the book is rediculous…

    I’m having a hard time understating how all of this is going to work.
    Like, are they seeing if they can get the most people to play the mini-game between 1:00-1:01pm EST? I just don’t see how all of this is going to be simultaneous.

    Jared Sartin. If you think what people will do to get into the World record book is “rediculous” then your kind of mising the point of it.

      I think there are plenty of “ridiculous” things you can do that are considered a “world record” (like growing your fingernails for 20 years without cutting them!), and a lot of them are doable, but the fees associated with a record attempt are pretty high, so the chance to take part in a world record, without doing anything but logging on and running in place for <10 seconds seems like a no-brainer.

    Phong, It has literally just opened up now, might need to switch your console off/on for it to pick up, otherwise show some patience.

      Free Gold doesn’t seem to be working for me. This page is saying your comment was left 2 hours ago. Anyone else have luck getting a Free account to access Gold features?

      Major Nelson edited his post to say the Free Weekend is for the European Union only. I was planning on taking advantage of the Free Weekend too. Kinect Sports will have free MP for everyone during the World Record attempt.
