It's an Xbox Xtival! (Don't try to pronounce it -- you may summon Cthulu.) European Xbox 360 owners will be treated to a weekend of free Xbox Live Gold access in this virtual "party" featuring Halo 3, Lips, Guitar Hero and more. The free Gold experience should activate automatically, allowing even lowly non-paying customers to jump online in their favorite favourite games.
