Now that Amazon Instant Video the Rebellion Pack for Mass Effect 3 is out, you probably want to spend some time trying both of them out. What’s that? Your Xbox Live Gold membership has lapsed? There’s no need to worry about that because Microsoft is making everyone in select regions an honorary Xbox Live Gold member from June 1-3.

If you live in the following countries, you’ll be able to check out Xbox Live Gold video content and partake in multiplayer games:

  • United States
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • Brazil
  • Colombia
  • Chile

Once the free weekend is over, E3 will be staring us in the face. It’s there that Microsoft will reveal some new Xbox Live features that will probably be tied to Gold memberships. Should anything convince you to pay for the service, but you don’t want to pay for a full year, keep watching the Xbox Live dashboard for membership discounts. Sometimes you can get a full month of Gold for $1.
