Want to test the new Xbox update? Just fill out a survey

Monday, 20th July 2009 20:23 GMT By Nathan Grayson


A new Xbox 360 system update is on the way, but you don’t have to wait until it launches to try it. Major Nelson has the details on this year’s System Update Preview Program.

Just head over to Microsoft Connect, fill out a survey, and you’re (probably) in!

Bear in mind, however, that Gold users get priority over the penny-pinching Silver caste, so don’t be too heartbroken if you’re not selected for the test.

Well, what are you waiting for? Get to it, before the good seats are taken.

    As much I like the idea of playing with the new dashboard. By getting it early, I take a chance on hosing my xbox more so than if I wait.
    I’m going to wait I think

    How would signing up increase the chances of hosing your Xbox?
