Preview Program Emails are being sent out

 

We’re in the process of sending notification emails out to the first group of people for the Xbox LIVE Update Preview Program. Please check your email (and spam folder…just in case) to see if you were selected. If we stay on schedule, those selected should receive a prompt to accept the update later today/tonight.

 

We’ll be sending another wave of notifications later this week, but we are holding registration open a bit longer to make sure everyone has a chance to participate. If you signed up but did not receive a mail yet, please head over to the connect site and review your information to make sure it is correct. I am being told that there are quite a few people did not properly complete the survey. If this is the first you are reading about the Preview Program, go ahead and sign up and you may be chosen to participate before the update is released on August 11th.

 

Update: Sign in to the connect site to see if you are accepted, since many of you did not opt-in to allow us to send you emails, or your email was not properly record in the system.

    I played on the new dash last night for a good hour. I know it’s new but the Avatar marketplace was very disappointing. The items seemed costly.

    I would have thought there would’of been at least one game for the Xbox 360 games for download.
    I did like the ranking system on games.
    I’ll try it some more tonight!

    @Zekeban: Nope, probably more of an issue of “first come, first served”. My (other (Silver)) account was in the first batch and I’m quite sure I didn’t want to be contacted. Apart from some serious lag previewing avatar marketplace items, at least it was a nice surprise to see them previewable in the first place. Won’t spend a single point for such eye candy but the default selection of some 45 items was still pretty neat. Other than that, the update won’t make much difference here in Europe. Best of luck being in the next wave, though!

    Why are folks so ‘hung-up’ on the e-mail. I got the update & did not even check to see if I got the e-mail until after i messed-around with the new dashboard.

    The changes to Netflix are fantastic. I can update my instant quee without going to my PC. Thanks Major.

    The update definitely seems faster in the dashboard. My XBLA list does seem to populate much faster and the dash feels pretty snappy overall. If there is anything bad (besides the prices in the Avatar Marketplace:) ), the animations in the dashboard get a little jerky sometimes.

    Is the Media Party app in the fall update? I wanted to share my vids, music and pics. I thought it was here since Netflix has the movie parties already.
