Halo 3 + Silver account = free multiplayer

Let your Xbox Live Gold account expire? Forgotten whether or not Halo 3 multiplayer is actually any good? Just the news for you then — during this glorious weekend that is upon us, Microsoft is giving Silver members the chance to rekindle their interest in both by allowing them to hop into Halo 3‘s online modes as if they were golden boys and gals. No doubt this happening just when the new Mythic map pack has arrived is no coincidence and Microsoft are hoping to squeeze some extra sales out of the new maps. And who can blame ’em.

The free ride ends Monday, April 13th at 9AM PST.
