Microsoft really wants everyone to try out the two multiplayer offerings in Halo 4, both the traditional multiplayer and the Spartan Ops. So much so, in fact, that they're bundling every copy of Halo 4 with two weeks of Xbox Gold access for free.
This is quite a precedent for Microsoft. In fact, 343 Industries designer David Ellis said via Twitter that he believes this is a first for the company.
Are you already an Xbox Gold subscriber? Then congratulations...you have two free weeks now, which thereby extends your annual renewal date. Any time I can push back a payment deadline without penalty is always welcome.
