If you have an Xbox 360 and have an Xbox Live Silver membership you may be glad to hear that Microsoft will be allowing Silver members free ‘Gold access’ from noon ET April 1st until noon ET April 5th.
This will enable silver members to play online multiplayer games and utilize services such as Facebook, Twitter, last.fm and Netflix, Microsoft will probably be hoping that this will lead to more people signing up to a gold membership in the future.
I must say as soon as a silver member gets to play Bad Company 2 or MW2 online they will probably be keen to purchase a gold membership, therefore it is pretty good marketing from Microsoft.
