What's billed as an "explosive weekend of combat", EA and Microsoft have joined forces to host Battlefield: Bad Company Live Weekend! And the fun has already begun!

Kicking off today and lasting through Sunday, June 29th, the Bad Company Live Weekend offers up two fun events. First being the Play & Win where, once registered, Bad Company gamers can win all kinds of swag, autographed goods and one lucky winner will even come away with a gold dipped Xbox 360. Sounds expensive! The other Live Weekend event is a Play with Developers event that goes down early tomorrow morning from 3-7:00AM eastern. Pull the pin and jump into a weekend with some Bad Company. And because we can ... an explosive Solid Snake!
