Xbox 360 System Update Preview

I am happy to announce that we’re doing an Xbox 360 System Update Preview program for our next release, and the opportunity to sign up is now available. We are conducting an open call for US based participants for a public preview to help us 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.

I’ll be sure to update this post if the program fills up.

Sign up for the Xbox LIVE Update Preview Program

Update: This preview will not impact voice/party chat at all.

Update 2: Thank you for your interest in the Xbox LIVE Update Preview Program! Sorry, at this time we are no longer accepting registrations for the program as we have reached our target audience volume. Please be on the lookout for additional opportunities in the future to participate in Xbox LIVE Update Preview programs. For those of you that have successfully completed registration we will be reaching out to you once we have completed the selection process for participation – within the next 2 weeks. You can check on your status my referring to your Connect Dashboard page and the icon in the upper right corner.
If you see Xbox LIVE Update = Pending then you have successfully registered and now you just need to wait for a follow up mail.


Damn why can’t they test in the UK for once? The Labs thing and now this :anguished:

This! ^
MS are so gay when it comes to Xbox… :confused: Homo’s. (yes i did just say homos lmao)

I stopped registering after I was too lazy to get my console ID and serial number.

Thanks :smile:

what is it?

Now… I wait 2 weeks for it to start :smile:

:laughing: Well when your on your xbox just check system settings and get it because im sure they won’t fill up that fast some kids will be paranoid to give out the ID and serial number

Thanks for this!

Mine=pending <3

Thanks for letting us know. I always sign up for these things.

2 weeks is a pretty long time

Then don’t think about it :smile:

Psh that will be normal just do what you do best and it will fly by and plus a free copy of a game you can not beat that anywhere :laughing:

damn update great it’ll be lt2.1 next god damn it

Would be funny for the reason they are giving you a reach disk is because your 360 won’t play any other old 360 games while having this update. :slight_smile: just a guess.

That would suck.

Thanks for this dude, I just applied and I got pending, so just gunna wait for a while hopefully I get accepted into the program thing they’re doing. Much appreciated! :smile:

I’m guessing this will be true. Probably like the party chat thing with the dash preview.
