Apparently it’s that time of the year again, where a select amount of users will be able to beta test, or “preview”, the upcoming Xbox Live system update. Thousands of users will be invited, after the survey is completed, to be apart of this Xbox Live update preview program.
Like the previous major Xbox Live System update, which introduced the New Xbox Experience, Microsoft is holding another Xbox Live System Update Program to test the next big system update to come to the Xbox 360. All you have to do is participate in a survye to be considered by the officials to be accepted as one of the testers. You’ll get to test the new update before it reaches the public, getting to see some interesting new features and make use of them first. You’ll need to head over to the Microsoft Connect website (link in the link below) and sign in with your Windows Live ID that’s connected to your gamertag. This is an opportunity open for both Silver users and Gold users, but Gold users will get priority over silver users. So if you’re a silver member, your chances of being accepted are slim. You’ll also need your Xbox 360 serial number to complete the survey, by the way, so this isn’t something to do unless you have your 360 handy.
This sounds almost exciting, I wonder what they’re gonna add in this major update? People are saying it’s just a couple of fixes and added features. Nothing as major as completely overhauling the dashboard as previously done. They say update, so it’s unlikely that anything ground breaking will happen, but some are hoping that they’ll bring the blades back.
