Microsoft unleash Xbox LIVE Public Preview Program

Want the new Xbox LIVE Dashboard? Join up to the Public Preview Program gain access

| Gaming News | Posted: Oct 13, 2011 2:05 am

Yesterday I reported that the new Xbox LIVE Dashboard would drop on November 25th, but if you are one of those people who like to live on the bleeding edge then you can sign up for the Xbox LIVE Public Preview Program. Microsoft have announced an open call for all Xbox LIVE members to register to participate in the preview program to help them test the system.

They say that this is an important program as Microsoft are continually striving to ensure the reliability of a service that reaches tens of millions globally. They can't do this without you, the users. Once the program starts, an update will be pushed to your Xbox 360 console that will contain the new features, including:

 

• New design for integrated Kinect and controller navigation

• New Beacons to play online with friends

• Deeper Facebook integration

• New Cloud Storage for Game Saves and Xbox LIVE Profile

 

Other features and entertainment partner apps may come into view during the program period.

 

Click here for the initial register for the Public Preview.

 

Note:

 

For those familiar with previous registrations for our program, we have a new model for registering your consoles this year. The new model is a more automated process that should make it easier for you. We will not ask you to type in your console information upon initial registration; once you are approved to participate in the program, look for details on our portal about how to register your console.
