Microsoft cancels free Xbox Live Gold weekend in UK

Don't get too down - it's still coming

Microsoft has told CVG that this weekend's planned Free Xbox Live Gold deal won't be happening in the UK - and has been postponed to a later date.

Microsoft community man Major Nelson confirmed the offer on his blog earlier this week - but it looks like it might just be a US-only affair.


Microsoft has blamed a "technical issue" for the delay on these shores.

An MS spokesperson told CVG: "Due to a technical issue the Free Xbox LIVE Weekend will be postponed this weekend in the UK.

"We are committed to further trial and promotional activity for the FREE community and will be in a position soon to announce a further FREE LIVE Weekend.

"In the meantime all Free and Trial members should look out for a host of new promotional offers on the Xbox LIVE dashboard."
