    They used my image of the 1888 blades dashboard from this thread in that article ;)

    Good to hear, I'm sure it goes without saying i hope to get in to the beta.

    I'm sure i'll get in. Every single preview i've signed up for i've gotten in. I'm more than ready to get off the Kinect dash but personally that new one doesn't look a lot better.

    Thinking about it that's true, i missed one of them because the signup were at like 2am for people in the UK, then were full by morning here. I have got in to everything I managed to signup for, so here's to noticing when the sign ups go live!

    I think the NXE was nice at the time and is great offline, however when signed in to Xbox live you get 5 different rows each full of different content. I personally find that a pain to navigate.

    This looks like it will be improved a lot, however i do agree I don't think its reverentially but am keen to try it out for myself to see!

    Pretty sure the only Beta I didn't get into at first was the one where they shipped you a Kinect. I did get into it later though.

    I have been in all the beta's i've heard about since joining Digiex :)

    Hoopefully having a Kinect might increase the chances of getting in to this beta, although as Andami says I think they just accept everyone who signs up in time.

    The latest recoveries for Devkits have the new dash, however there is nothing for just normal 360's yet.

    Not usually, the last one was because of the disc they sent out I would guess, all the others have been world wide.

    Xbox LIVE Preview Program

    I’ve gotten a lot of questions asking me if there is going to be a Preview Program for the upcoming dashboard update. I am working with the teams here on a Preview Program for the new dashboard similar to the one we did last year. I don’t have a time frame or any additional specifics to share right now, but as soon as I do you can be sure I’ll make a blog post. Follow me on twitter to find out the moment I have news to share.

    That is odd. Who is MJ anyway? I know people get alot of 360 info from him but does he work for MS or something?
