Xbox Beta Invite Open Now

Looking to get the latest from Microsoft and their Xbox? Look no further than your Xbox Dashboard, so turn that puppy on and get in on the Beta!

Sign up for the 2013 Xbox Live Update Xbox 360 Public Beta

We’re inviting Xbox Live members worldwide to participate in the 2013 Xbox Live Update for Xbox 360 Public Beta.* It will include updates to improve overall performance and the ability to conduct transactions with local currency, as Microsoft Points will be retired later this year.

Unlike our previous beta programs, sign up is now accessed directly through your Xbox 360 console to streamline the experience. Space is limited, so once the spots are filled the beta will be closed to the public.

To join, look for the Xbox Beta Program tile on the home hub of the Xbox Dashboard. source article

Some say it may have more integration with Windows 8, and also may look like the Xbox One console dashboard, I doubt it, but I won’t know because by the time I get on my Xbox they won’t have any spots left…

Also if you are looking for Xbox One information go here! Xbox One will be released November 30th, have you pre-ordered yours? I did! 🙂

    Nathan I assume you joined the public beta. What did you think of Xbox One?

    New lightweight controllers, cloud opportunities and Kinect included on each system...lets just say I'm a fan already. What are your thoughts on it Michelle?

    No Michelle, I missed the beta opportunity, when I finally got to my Xbox the other day, I couldn't find the invite widget anywhere, meaning that the beta is now closed. I do however have an Xbox One on pre-order, and I am thinking to do an unboxing and power up video for my blog.
