There have been many free Gold weekends before, but this particular one is special. Not only is it (currently) exclusive to Canada, but it will last for five entire days. Starting tomorrow 7:00 AM PST on May 17th, Xbox LIVE Free (Silver) members can enjoy the perks of Gold, through 9:00 A.M PST on May 21st.
Beyond the benefits of being able to play online multiplayer and access apps
, you can utilize your secondary or alternate accounts for whatever reasons you see fit. Free LIVE weekends do not
grant you access to Deal of the Week however.
