If you’re still not sure about subscribing to Xbox LIVE Gold, or you prefer to take things slow and sign up for the paid subscription on a monthly basis, then you’ll be pleased to know that Microsoft will be freeing up the service this weekend to Xbox 360 owners in the US and Canada.

This allows everybody in these countries, Major Nelson writes, to enjoy a full weekend of multiplayer gaming, Video Kinect and Xbox LIVE’s suite of entertainment applications. The free Xbox LIVE Gold promotion begins tomorrow, February 14th at 12:01 AM PT, and ends on Sunday, February 16th at 11:59 PM PT.

Who in North America will be taking advantage of the offer? Anyone outside of North America running on a US Xbox LIVE account that will be playing with their US friends this weekend?
