Xbox 360 System Update Coming, Sign Up To Preview It

by Rainier on March 29, 2011 @ 12:18 p.m. PDT

Microsoft announced that it is preparing a new dashboard update and is kicking off an Xbox 360 System Update Preview program, asking interested fans to sign up to help it prepare for "an updated Xbox 360 disc format."

This is an important update as we continually strive to improve our products and we could not do so without the help of our great Xbox community. As part of the preview program, you will receive a copy of Halo: Reach along with other possible rewards.

Much like we did last year, you’ll need to visit the Microsoft Connect site from this link and sign in with your Windows Live ID that is connected to your Xbox LIVE Gamertag.  Once you complete the survey that is presented to you, the Connect site will provide program related updates and you will receive a mail once the selection process is completed. 

A couple of points before you head off to register:

  • We’re looking for multiple thousands of participants, so your chances of making it in are good.

  • This opportunity is open to Xbox LIVE Members in US region only*.

    To avoid any problems, read the survey carefully and double check all the information you provide. 

  • While both Xbox LIVE Gold and Silver members can sign up, priority will be given to Gold members in the selection process.

Due to disc distribution limitations, this beta it will be limited to residents of the United States only.
