    Well it should only be the ID that was put into the program, the one that you typed out but it could be possible.

    It says on the dash somewhere that they will be working when the final kinect dash is released next month.

    Most BETA updates can cause the Red Ring Of Death. Be careful.

    All updates can cause RROD, but most likely beta ones.

    Thanks to Mr / Mrs Anonymous I could have some more Kinect related material to update this thread with tomorrow. I would just like to say a big thanks to them for the additional Kinect betas (Y)

    If anything worth while can be seen without a Kinect unit I will add some screenshots / videos.

    Why would you even think of messing about with a new Slim Console ? for the sake of a new dash thats coming out in a month anyway? DUH !
    You deserve for it to be screwed

    The Slim and the regular consoles have no differences so does he deserve to be screwed? Doesn't matter if the console is new or old its still a console now isn't it? Its still an official dashboard, so that didn't really make sense.

    Well if that's nutters console downloading them his console will have a license for them. They should work to the title screen / in game like Dance Central and Joyride.

    Send me a PM if you need to get hold of me, i will try and get on later.

    Yes, i'm in the preview program not the Kinect beta, someone in the Kinect beta got me the games and a licence for my console.

    Here are some photos of Video Kinect, anyone on the Kinect dash beta can now use it.

    It allows you to video chat from Xbox 360 to Xbox 360 over MSN / Windows Live Messenger, you can also chat from Xbox 360 to Windows Live Messenger on the PC.

    The Xbox 360 is now also classed as another location so you are not signed out on the PC when you sign in on the 360.

    Video chat from PC to Xbox 360 doesnt appear to fully work at the moment, the Xbox 360 user can see the webcam of the PC user, however the PC user can not see the Webcam of the Xbox 360 user.

    I will add more stuff here later.

    Some one who is actually in the Kinect beta has to download the games on a profile.
    You can then recover the profile and do a licence transfer on Xbox.com.
    After that download the Kinect games from your download history and your console will also obtain a licence to use them.

    Kinect Sports:

    You can not pass the welcome screen on Kinect sports, however if you leave it for a while a video will be played, see below:

    Kinect Adventures (Codenamed Springfield):

    Its not really possible to see / do anything much with this, however the video below shows all I have seen:
