Microsoft has been talking big about some of the new features coming to Xbox Live and now you, the gamer, can help beta test these features. This preview program makes anyone with an Xbox Live account eligible, says Xbox Live's Major Nelson. Gold subscribers will have a better chance of being accepted over Silver members though. Microsoft is looking for thousands of gamers to try it out this preview program. To sign up, you first need to first sign in to Microsoft Connect (https://login.live.com/login.s... ... 3&id=64416) before you can take the survey and apply.

This preview will let fans check out ESPN on Xbox LIVE, Zune music, Netflix search, the new Xbox LIVE dashboard, and new updates to Zune video and Family Settings on your Xbox 360, says Major Nelson. It should be noted that if you sign up for the preview, you will be unable to party chat with anyone who is not testing until the update is made available to everyone.

Will you be signing up for this preview program?

Hellz yeah Im joining, screw my mates they can deal with private or public chat, or nothing lol...
I got accepted in for this, reason why there is no party chat or private chat is because microsoft didnt want people to tell others what it was like, then ofcourse it got leaked.

On another point though its a shame this isnt for the kinect beta, everybody who got this early also got a kinect kit to try out all the new kinect games, kinda sucks.

Major Nelson announced today that they were almost done with accepting applications. The site did say that the program would begin in around 2 weeks.
