Microsoft Banning Unauthorized NXE Users

Don't copy that floppy!

Microsoft has sent out the confirmation emails to those lucky folks who will get to participate in an early look at the New Xbox Experience, and according to videogaming247, it included a caveat regarding early use of the NXE on unauthorized Xbox 360s. The email states that you should not use your post-upgrade storage device (hard drive or memory card) on any consoles other than the one that has been specifically authorized to take part in the NXE preview. Apparently doing so will basically infect the other console with the new dashboard, which doesn't sound so much like a problem on its own, though it will also prevent the other console from signing onto Xbox Live prior to the official November 19th release date. So before you go borrow your buddy's hard drive, bear in mind that you won't be able to play any Gears of War 2 online for nearly three weeks.
