If you happen to have an Xbox 360, but you don’t have a Xbox Live Gold membership, you’ll be happy to hear that next weekend (October 4th-6th) Microsoft will once again let everyone without a subscription to get access to all the benefits of Gold, which included online multiplayer modes, ability to use all the apps including Netflix, YouTube, and Internet Explorer.

The free Xbox Live Gold weekend will be available to all Xbox 360 owners in the U.S. and 37 more countries included, according to Xbox Wire announcement. Territories like Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico will have a free weekend, but Microsoft is pushing the date to October 11th-14th. Finally, Japan will also have a free Xbox Live Gold weekend, but on November 7th-10th.

I don’t know for sure, but it seems logical that if next weekend every Silver account becomes a Gold account, perhaps gamers will be able to download Might & Magic Clash of Heroes, which is one of the free games this month for Xbox 360.
