Here's the thing. I have points on my Xbox account, however, it won't let me spend them because I have a silver one. I am wondering if I can use a 48 hour trail I have in order to get the Hearthfire DLC for Skyrim... would that be possible to do? Or should I wait for the one in a million chance of a free gold weekend?

People need to realize that games are art. Seriously, it's been proven over and over again. I think it's about time to people to man up and finally say this.

That...shouldn't be happening. You don't need a gold membership to buy stuff off of the xbox live marketplace, a silver membership (the free one) is sufficient

Might wanna get ahold of Microsoft Tech support on that one?

There are game demos that require you to have a gold membership in order to download them... It's so stupid.

Only for the first week they are available (I don't think any new demos have been released in the past 7 days), or, possibly, if the demo only offers online play, which would require Gold anyway.

Here is the link for the free month of gold TC

https://live.xbox.com/en-US/Subscriptions?Campaign=gff-live-welcome-offer

just use that and not concern yourself with any of those 48-hour cards.

I'm open to pretty much any game you wanna play as long as I own it.

Except demos are free. We're talking paid content here.
