Xbox 360 gamers who have never given Xbox Live Gold a shot, have reasons to be happy, as the service is freely available for use right through until Dec 2.

This move by Microsoft to make Xbox Live Gold free for a limited time is a plot to get more users to see what they are missing out on, which could mean possible paying newcomers in the future. Free weekends isn't a first for Microsoft, the company has done this with Xbox Live Gold on several occasions before.

Furthermore, a free Xbox Live Gold weekend is only available to users in selected countries. Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States are all there. However, European countries are not on the list. If you live in Europe, there might be some disappointments, or maybe Microsoft plans to give Europeans some love at a later date.

For those interested, the free weekend runs from Nov. 29 to Dec. 2, so only a day left before it is all over and done. Every service on Xbox Live will be available for free weekend users to take advantage of; services such as Internet Explorer 9, Netflix, Hulu Plus, ESPN, Video Kinect, Xbox Music along with a ton more content, some of which are only available on Xbox Live.

Get fragging online with your friends before everything comes to an end. Then get an Xbox Live subscription and enjoy all the cool stuff it has to offer.
