The big announcement of the evening was Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays, a new promotion that will regularly dispense Arcade content during the middle of each week.

Today, Microsoft is giving the rest of the Xbox Live community a chance to go to the event...virtually. Now available for download from Xbox Live Marketplace is GameSpot presents the Xbox Live Gold Experience Trailer.
