Free Week of XBL Gold with Lost and Damned
Microsoft’s in a giving mood, so take it while you can get it, GTA IV gamers! In celebration of the Lost and Damned expansion, Microsoft and Rockstar have joined forces to bring Xbox Live Gold service to all Grand Theft Auto IV gamers.
Here’s the official word from the “new” Gamerscore Blog:
We are excited to announce that for the first time ever, starting Tuesday, February 17 at 9:00 am (PST), Xbox LIVE multiplayer service usually reserved for Xbox LIVE Gold members will be completely free of charge for LIVE members while playing Grand Theft Auto IV or The Lost and Damned — the first exclusive downloadable expansion episode on Xbox 360. This limited, Grand Theft Auto multiplayer promotion is applicable only to players of either Grand Theft Auto IV or The Lost and Damned expansion episode, and will end on Sunday, February 22 (11:59PM PST).
This definitely beats getting one of those little 48-hour cards that comes with a lot of new games. Rather than having two days to rush and get all the fun you can with your game, you now have a whole week to get hooked on Xbox Live.
Anyways, here’s hoping the Lost and Damned Live Week is a huge success. Gamers new to XBL will get the chance to see what they’ve been missing and current Gold members (like myself) get more people to frag.
It’s a win-win all the way around!
