Update: Hope you got in early. It’s over. Nelson just added this to the bottom of his post: “I just found out that that the preview program is now FULL. Now it’s time to go through the thousands of applicants. Thanks for your interest and good luck getting in!”

Nelson brings word that applications to get in on an early look of New Xbox Experience are now open.

There’s information about how to register through there. Basic stuff from the Major’s blog:

  • We’re looking for a few thousand participants, so your chances of making it in are good
  • This opportunity is open to all Xbox LIVE Members in regions where Xbox LIVE is available
  • Just completing the survey does not automatically get you access to the NXE. We’ll be making final selections from from the completed surveys.
  • Xbox LIVE Gold and Silver members can sign up. Priority will be given to Gold members in the selection process.

The update’s already in the hands of journalists, as we were excitedly informed last night. MTV’s posted up impressions already.

NXE launches on November 19.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
