THE BUZZ: For all of you out there who signed up to do the preview test of the new Xbox 360 dashboard, good news—many of you will be receiving that updated dashboard today.

Already around the internet, a large amount of people are reporting that they’ve received an update on their Xbox 360 which installs the new Xbox dashboard preview build. For those who haven’t received the update, it’s very likely that you’ll get it at some point later today.

In addition to that, a number of changes have also occurred on the official Xbox website. With these changes, you’ll now be able to set Beacons (let friends know what games you want to play), better search available content, connect easier with the social aspects of your Xbox 360, and more.

In order to receive the preview build of the new Xbox 360 dashboard, you need to have previously signed up for this beta test. If you did that, then the next step—if you have not already done so—is to go to connect.microsoft.com, log in, and follow the further instructions in order to generate a pass key and download the registration app to your console.

EGM’s TAKE: This is the third time Microsoft has made a major revision to the Xbox 360’s main interface—it’ll be interesting to see all of the differences that have come along with this new Metro-style dashboard, and if they make the Xbox 360’s interface a better experience.
