Microsoft is doing an Xbox 360 System Update Preview program for their new release and Microsoft wants you to help. Before you get too excited, there is some pretty strict criteria you need to meet: must live in the US and you must own an Xbox 360. The public preview is to help Microsoft prepare for an updated Xbox 360 disc format. As a thank you for participating in the program you'll receive a copy of Halo:Reach. Keep reading for more details
Major Nelson posted about the preview on his blog. He wanted to make sure people thinking about volunteering were aware of these points:
- We’re looking for multiple thousands of participants, so your chances of making it in are good.
- This opportunity is open to Xbox LIVE Members in US region only*.
- To avoid any problems, read the survey carefully and double check all the information you provide.
- While both Xbox LIVE Gold and Silver members can sign up, priority will be given to Gold members in the selection process.
Details about what testers will be expected to do were limited but if you're going to get a free copy of Halo: Reach you'll probably have to do something labor intensive. What type of new disc format do you think it will be?
