Free Gold Weekend for Xbox Live members, take part in record breaking attempt

By Stephany Nunneley, Thursday, 21 April 2011 19:33 GMT

Xbox Live is free for all members this weekend, and Microsoft wants to attempt a Guinness World record through Kinect Sports on Saturday, April 23.

The free weekend is being dubbed Xbox Nations, and in order to be part of the world record Kinect Sports players around the globe need to log into Live for the ‘largest online 100m sprint’ at 1.00pm EST or the equivalent in your region of the world.

To help Xbox 360 end up in Guinness, log into Live, fire up Kinect Sports, and start running a 100-meter dash event at 1.00pm.

Each and every runner will be rewarded with an exclusive Xbox and Guinness World Record Avatar t-shirt.
