    "So, now there's no more reason to complain about the price, at least for one weekend!" wow, such a great way to show their love after years of subscribtion but yet europeans get screwed off with CONTENT unlike US and Japan.

    ah well, free whatever, I will be busy with 2 offline games anyways, ME and AC.

    Happy online to all I guess.

    I already pay for gold even though i hardly play online at all so yeah...not a big whoop for me. But it's still a nice gesture from MS.

    All done to lure more people into the XBL nickle&diming pit.. They want to sell Gold memberships, so this offer is for silver members only.. Gold members get nothing special..

    If they want to make me happy, maybe they could annouce that all gamerpics and theme's will be free from now on.. That would be a start..

    This doesn't make up for every other time European 360 owners have been screwed out of similar deals imho.

    Ridiculous that they can only do deals for certain regions, whats the bloody point at the end of the day.

    This looks like something from the labour party. SPIN SPIN SPIN!

    I think that policy is about to change as Microsoft takes it's focus out of Japan and directs it towards Europe.

    Give them a chance, they may make good on some of these promises

    once Assasin Creed is out, i hope i won't be playing on LIVE for a while... save a bit of money
