Details for the Xbox Summer Stadium event and another Kinect Sports world record attempt

The Xbox Summer Stadium event kicks off this coming weekend on June 15th up until August 12th. To start off the long Summer event, the benefits of being an Xbox LIVE Gold member will be available for FREE for the weekend and will allow Silver accounts access to the entertainment apps such as 4OD and Demand 5, as well as the opportunity to participate in online multiplayer gaming. Here's a quick rundown of what exactly the Xbox Summer Stadium event is about:

The Xbox Summer Stadium brings you an 8-week calendar of the best sports entertainment and gaming, including a season-long tournament and weekly challenges to celebrate the extraordinary human feats and historic events happening this summer. Plus there’ll be a raft of prizes to win and even a Guinness World Record to smash – don’t miss a thing…with Xbox.In order to participate in the challenges from the Summer Stadium event, training will be required on one of these highlighted sports titles to be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win 4000 MSP:

http://www.trueachievements.com/Dance-Central-2-xbox-360.htm

Have one of these games in your collection and want in on the challenge? Register right here.

Thanks to the Summer Stadium event, Xbox will be potentially making the summer better for kids in the world who are not too well off in life. On a mission to improve the lives and offer better education for "disadvantaged children internationally", Xbox will be supporting the children's charity, Right to Play. More info on the charity itself can be found here. A Guinness World Record attempt will be taking place on Kinect Sports on Saturday June 16th at 6PM (BST), as Xbox will be expecting thousands of runners to take part in the 100 metre sprint. This world record attempt looks to send the donation fund on the rise for the Right to Play charity. Can the Xbox community beat the previous record-breaking attempt?

With all the buzz going on with Football right now, Samsung will be paying a visit to the Summer Stadium and will be bringing along their own competition. Samsung will be giving out prizes up until the end of June which include. Here's the range of goodies Samsung have to offer:

• Be seen on our London Piccadilly big screen – your entry could be broadcast for all the crowd to see
• Fantastic Samsung products up for grabs every week – including a Samsung Smart TV D6000 37”, Samsung Smart Phone Galaxy SII, the latest Samsung Smart Camera NX20 and Xbox 360 console with Kinect Sports game
• An ultimate Samsung home entertainment make-over for our favourite entry – consisting of a Samsung Smart TV ES8000 55”, Samsung home theatre system HT-D6750W, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Note and an Xbox 360 console with Kinect sensor and Kinect Sports game
For chance to get your hands on some of these prizes, or be seen on the London Piccadilly big screen, Samsung wants to know "what it is about Football that matters most to you?". Answers and full details on the competition can be found here.

The FREE Xbox LIVE Weekend itself runs from June 15th through to June 17th.

You know, it's for UK only because we don't actually get a Summer time, we just get extended Autumn with a s*** load of rain. It's XBox's way of saying, we're sorry, lol!

What games in particular would this make boosting easy for? Games that allow two accounts on same console for example like fifa games, any ideas?

In before the "see, America never gets anything" trolls.

But agreed with previous post.... we don't get summer anymore, although we used too. Fucking global warming.
