No Free Live Weekend For Europeans

We recently brought you news that there will be a free Xbox Live Gold trial weekend but now we have the news that sadly gamers outside of America can participate in the event which is sponsored by Verizon and will be only be available to U.S. gamers. This makes some business sense, as there is little point for an American phone company to sponsor gamers who cannot even buy their products, but it’s disappointing for Europeans.

We do anticipate that there could be another free Live weekend just for Europeans if MS agrees terms with some sponsor. We will bring new news on that if it transpires.
