Microsoft Corp. is inviting gamers to attend the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles next week, by taking them there virtually, for free, through the Xbox Live service.

Microsoft's Xbox Live Silver members will have accounts upgraded to Gold status from Monday, May 8 at 8 a.m. through Sunday, May 14 at 11:59 p.m. Verizon will sponsor a giveaway of one million Microsoft points redeemable for Xbox Live Arcade games, themes, gamer pictures, and more in the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Throughout the week, Microsoft will make more than 60 pieces of new content available for download from the Xbox 360 Marketplace, including demos and trailers from games like Crackdown, Viva Pinata, Moto GP 06, Test Drive Unlimited, and Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. Microsoft also promises "a flood" of high-definition trailers from games they have yet to announce.
