    Microsoft is looking for a few thousand folks to test out its next big Xbox Live Update. Who wants an early look at the new Xbox Live dashboard?

    If you're keen to get a peek at the new dashboard along with ESPN on Xbox Live, Netflix searching, Zune music, and other updates coming in the next big Xbox Live update, now's your chance. Microsoft is now accepting applications for the Xbox Live update preview program, and with multiple thousands of participants needed, there's a strong chance you'll be one of them.

    How do you sign up, you ask? Simply head to the sign up web page, sign in with the Windows Live ID that's connected to your Xbox gamertag, and fill out a short survey. Microsoft will let you know if you get in.

    Major Nelson says the preview program is open to all Xbox Live members in all regions, though paying gold members will be given priority over silver members. He also stressed that this is not a Kinect beta, so don't expect any free hardware to come your way.

    Meh, I got accepted my guess is they are just going to accept anyone and everyone until the reach a certain number of applicants. Yeah no party chat sucks but I guess its a small price to pay and in-game chat will still work fine they said so w/e.

    I meant that I used fake info for my XBL account.
    Which means it'll be harder to get the new dashboard.

    EDIT: I can't get it anyways, because my brother uses party chat a lot.

    Why can't modded xbox owners apply? As long as your not banned from Live you can still use this program.

    Well, if you update...

    You probably would lose some functionality of your mod. I think. [​IMG]

    Your talking about people with jtagged xboxs, and yeah that would be pretty retarded of them. However 90% of the modded xboxs out there are a simple dvd firmware hack, and has no bearing whatsoever on the system software.
