Microsoft Opens Sign-Ups For Xbox 360 Fall 2012 Dashboard Beta

Posted on July 26, 2012 AT 10:13am

It’s that time of year again; Microsoft has opened up registration for those would like to get an early look at the upcoming Fall 2012 Xbox 360 dashboard update!

Among the new features that will be coming with this next dashboard update will be:

  • Internet Explorer for Xbox 360
  • Personalized dashboard recommendations
  • Enhanced category search and discovery features

From the brief glimpse we saw of this new dashboard at E3 2012, it also looks like we’ll be getting other updates such as a “Favorites” option on the home tab, and a re-positioning of the “Games” tab to a far more logical place.

If you want to get into the Fall 2012 dashboard beta, I’d suggest you sign-up soon—Microsoft says slots will be limited. For now, all you’ll need to do is click the link below, sign in with your Microsoft Live account, answer a few questions, enter in your Xbox Live name, and you’ll be signed up. When exactly the beta test will be kicking off should be announced soon.

(Note: The above image is not of the new dashboard—there just aren’t many good pics of the Fall 2012 dashboard update out there yet.)

Update: Microsoft has just announced that sign-ups for the beta test are now closed. They went quick!
