Xbox Live will hold a "Gold Unlocked Free Live Weekend" in the UK from noon on Friday, May 3, until 23:59 on Sunday, May 5. For those who aren't Xbox Live Gold members, it means all multiplayer functionality for games is available through the weekend.

If you're a Netflix subscriber, you'll also be able to access the service through your Xbox - and the same goes for LOVEFiLM. Offers running alongside the free Gold weekend include Double XP on Gears of War: Judgment, Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3.
