It's under way.

We need members of our valued community to help us fine-tune this early build of Xbox LIVE. What do you love? What would you like to see improved?

Numbers are limited, so sign up today. If you’re selected as a tester, an update will be pushed to your console once the public beta kicks off. The update will contain select dashboard features, including:


Internet Explorer for Xbox

Personalized dashboard recommendations

Enhanced category search and discovery features


Note: A console in the program is expected to remain fully compatible with standard retail consoles not in the program.
Sign up through here (http://mjr.mn/2012XboxPublicBeta).

And if you're sceptical of clicking the link, you can go straight to Major Nelson's site and click the same one, if that makes you feel any better.

I miss the 'Free' section on the old dashboard.

Edit: Just signed up and also am now "Active". Does this mean I was chosen? The instructions then told me to finish the process by registering on the Xbox forums - which I did. Is there a specific place among the forums I need to visit to complete the process, or just log in? Thanks.

Alcohol and gaming, It's the perfect combination. I still don't understand why they got rid of Inside Xbox. I might not have watched every episode but at least it was midly entertaining. Now we have a plague of adverts and bloody IGN. Who are just so damn insightful.

When the dashboard beta was out, so many made a new thread but they just needed to post on any thread. Just find a thread, post something and that's all.

When I left there in Dec. And came here...and I should have done it YEARS ago...I swore I'd never post there again.

07-27-2012, 02:07 AM
Just finalized the registration. If you get in, you get this email:

Thank you for registering to be a part of the 2012 Xbox LIVE Update Public Beta program!

At this time, you can enroll your console into the program. There are three steps to do this.

Request a Product Key
Redeem the Product Key on your Xbox console
Run the Console Registration App
Full instructions can be found on Connect.Microsoft.comhere (remember, you must be signed in with the same email you registered with).

Questions you may have:

If I already have a Product Key, do I need to get another one? No, you only need one Product Key for the program.

I’ve redeemed my Product Key already, do I need to redeem it again? No, you only need to redeem the Product Key once for the program.

I’ve downloaded the Console Registration App already, do I have to download it again? No, you don’t need to download the app again. You do need to run the Console Registration app, once you do this you should get a confirmation screen shown in the registration instructionshere (on Connect.Microsoft.com).

I think I downloaded the Console Registration App, where do I find it?You’ll find it inMy Games, named Pre-Release Public!

Then you have to wait 1-2 business days according to the app, and you will be prompted to download the update.

It's totally possible they just don't need as many testers this time around, this update isn't the overhaul that the previous updates were.

Got it, its like the metro dashboard but updated, the demo section now shows all kind of demos in 1 section, its a mess, its like indies,arcades and game demos on 1 section, The pin thingy is kinda great for me, i have a lot of games, so just marking my favorites ones helps a lot!! And the Web Browser, its great too loving it btw, the only sad thing is that it flash support is not that great, like if you try to run youtube on IE for xbox it will run ok, but i tried GT and it didnt worked, in fact it didnt even loaded the app to watch the video, lets hope it have full flash compatibility in the full dashboard!
The flash thing is the only problem I have with it right now. I couldn't even use YouTube, although the app covers that. I do think the clutter will be cleared up by the full update, though.

Without flash support it's really gonna be limited in how much you can actually do. Would be great if they do implement it eventually though.

There's a *lot* of stuff that requires flash. Not just videos. Flash is a big part of web browsing, and I just can't bring myself to using it if flash is not going to be supported. And sadly, I expect X-Box to be on the list of devices that will likely never see Flash support. I don't think the PS3 browser supports Flash either, but I could be wrong here.

I'm not crazy about the increase in ads. They found a way to cram even more of them on the screen. I'm also not crazy about the fact that they have yet to fix the really slow dashboard loading times. I've already managed to get that pin thingy to crash a couple of times, but that's all part of beta.

The first thing I tried to do on the IE app was watch some Anime but you need Flash player. Which means most of the stuff is limited on the app. Also had no Java. It's pretty much a shitty version of the Ps3/Wii browser, it's not going to be used by many people apart from those who wish to go on Facebook or check their bank statements online and don't have a pc/laptop.

The first thing I tried to do on the IE app was watch some Anime but you need Flash player. Which means most of the stuff is limited on the app. Also had no Java. It's pretty much a shitty version of the Ps3/Wii browser, it's not going to be used by many people apart from those who wish to go on Facebook or check their bank statements online and don't have a pc/laptop.

Even then there's a app specifically for Facebook already, lol.

What would really be sick is if they made it so that you could use IE without having to quit the game/go to the dash like for every other app. If you could read a guide mid-game that would be great.

100MB or a little over update, then IE is another 100+MB. But this is just the start of the update, they usually release a few more before release.

This might sound stupid and I might be totally missing what might be infront of my eyes....but I'm struggling to find the add-ons section (DLC). Anyone help me out? I always like to have a quick look and see what's new. Cheers in advance!

You have to go to the game marketplace, find the game, and it'll show the dlc.

Mine's been turtle slow for a while but seemed better after last nights update. (didn't have it on for long though)

Will have to see how it's running when i get home later.
