Find out if you’re in the Xbox 360 Dashboard beta program

Posted on October 17, 2011 AT 05:58pm

THE BUZZ: Microsoft recently initiated sign-ups for the upcoming Fall 2011 Xbox 360 dashboard update beta test, and today, the company has started notifying those who have been accepted into the program.

If you haven’t yet received an email, here’s how you can check to see if you’re in the beta test or not.

  1. Go to this url:
  2. Sign in with your Windows Live ID
  3. In the “Announcements” box, look for a link that says: “Next Steps – as of 10/17/2011″
  4. On the page that comes up after clicking that link, if you’re in the beta test, the second paragraph should say the following: “Those details are coming out very soon, until then, know that you are ‘IN’ for the Fall 2011 Xbox LIVE Update Preview program and we are ecstatic to have you on board!”

If you’ve been accepted, then the remaining steps that you’ll need to take in order to participate the beta should become active soon.

EGM’s TAKE: So, did you get in? Let us know if you did, and what you’re hoping to see in the new Xbox 360 dashboard!
