Microsoft seems to be testing the waters for a 24 hour free trial system

Hm, could we have another Xbox Live feature out in the wild? One attentive reddit user happened to find a peculiar listing for Max: The Curse of Brotherhood on the Xbox One beta program noting something called "Free Play Day."

It's not clear what the details are, but one can assume that either a special date is going to be set in advance for an unlimited 24 hour play session, or it will work exactly like EA Access and PlayStation Plus do now, where full game trials allow you a certain amount of time before it locks you out and lets you purchase it. When they reached out to Xbox Support about the find, they said that a response will come "shortly."

Well, it took them a while, but Microsoft seems to finally be adding in features to attempt to catch up with PlayStation Plus. 

Max: TCOB offered as 'Free Play Day With Gold' in the DWG section! [Reddit]

I had terrible luck with my wireless adapter for the Xbox 360 gamepad -- damn thing was spotty at best, non-functional at worst -- so here's hoping these new ones are an improvement.more
