Nice. I signed up and was accepted. Now I pray this doesn't break my system. :P
Microsoft Needs Testers For A New Xbox Preview Program
" Got in. Hope it doesn't explode my Xbox. I wonder if anyone is being denied? "Yeah really. They took me right away, and I don't have netflix. I might sign up for a trial or something during this though, just to see the new app. The old one was ok, but I still wanted more.
Their sign-up didn't work for shit. I wouldn't have actually participated, but I thought I'd check out the signup, at least. When you click on the first link they give you, it never actually took you anywhere. Probably some proprietary IE bullshit and I'm not going to load IE just to sign up to be someone's beta testing bitch.
"Is it just added features for the dashboard, or is it the leaked 'updated' dashboard with really square panels and the such? "
It's the new dashboard with all the features and appeareance. I will say the square theme is a bit odd looking, but it's certainly much cleaner. Considering how much people were complaining about the amount of "ads" and clutter though, I see why they've gone for something like this.
Also looks to be much easier to navigate with Kinect.
Major Nelson just tweeted that they're almost full. Now is the time to decide if you want in or not.
" mother humper, I actually need to be at my xbox to do this..... pffffffbbbbbbbb "

I just checked and you can get your serial number by going to the support page and requesting a repair. If your console is registered it will show up there. You don't actually have to go through with the request, it's just a place to select which console you want repaired.
The console ID is available from the license transfer tool here. Select "star the processs now" (you don't have to go through with it and it should show up. I've actually done a transfer, so you may need an extra step to get to a place to see your consoles if you haven't already done it.
i got accepted into the program as well. i've started using espn 3 more often and i like what is offered with it. will be nice to have it right there instead of having to hook my laptop up to my tv all the time. a bummer though that non preview ppl can't party chat with preview ppl but hopefully the full release goes out soon after the preview stuff so we can all party up anytime we want with all friends and not just some.
Major Nelson tweeted whilst i was on the way home that they now have enough testers and are refusing anymore. I was lucky enough to register last night as soon as i got home from work, im in the UK too. There was an option to choose which country you where from and they where all in there.
