Sign up for the 2013 Xbox Live Update Xbox 360 Public Beta
We’re inviting Xbox Live members worldwide to participate in the 2013 Xbox Live Update for Xbox 360 Public Beta.* It will include updates to improve overall performance and the ability to conduct transactions with local currency, as Microsoft Points will be retired later this year.
Unlike our previous beta programs, sign up is now accessed directly through your Xbox 360 console to streamline the experience. Space is limited, so once the spots are filled the beta will be closed to the public.
To join, look for the Xbox Beta Program tile on the home hub of the Xbox Dashboard. You will be required to agree to a non-disclosure agreement for confidentiality reasons. For more details on the beta, we will have a Beta FAQ that posted here later today.
Our open public betas allow you to help make Xbox even better. We appreciate your feedback and thank you for participating!
Xbox Live members in any of our 41 Xbox Live-enabled markets will be able to participate in the public beta for Xbox 360. Please note that members in Japan will have an opportunity to join at a later date.
Micrsoft promised to give updates on the progress of the beta, and to also confirm a date for Japan’s beta opening.
