North America has been the willing recipient of a recent free Xbox LIVE Gold weekend
. Those of us in other regions had missed out on the goodies. However, European gamers will now be pleased to know that there is a free Xbox LIVE Gold weekend heading solely to our region.
From December 9th until December 11th, Xbox LIVE Free members will be able to try out all of the new features that have appeared in the latest dashboard update. As well as the TV coverage
from many different channels around the world, the dashboard update includes cloud saves, beacons, improved Kinect voice integration, and a new interface that replicates the look of the Windows Phone 7 interface and that of the upcoming Windows 8.
There will also be discounts on selected Zune films, but details on this are yet to be revealed. Of course, you could just make use of the weekend to play multiplayer games and boost with your friends instead.
