Xbox Live Gold is Free This Weekend in the US, Canada, Latin America and Japan

Xbox Live is free this weekend for Xbox 360 users in the United States, Canada, Latin America and Japan.

Starting April 19 at 7am PST and ending April 22 at 10am PST, anyone with a Silver account (basically, anyone with an internet connection) will be able to enjoy Xbox Live Gold services for free. That includes Netflix, Hulu Plus, other services of the like, plus of course, the ability to play your games online with other Gold members.

To sweeten the deal even further, a number of titles are putting on Double XP events, including Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Double Weapon XP), Far Cry 3, and Assassin’s Creed 3. Borderlands 2 players will also receive Shift keys granting players three Golden Keys in-game.
