    Was 2am for the UK when they have done it in the past, so be warned. Dont think they will do that again though as loads of people complained.

    Microsoft planning public beta of XBL Update soon

    [​IMG]




    This morning, Microsoft posted that it was accepting new users into the Xbox Live dashboard preview. This afternoon ... not so much (transition pictured).

    After seeing the post this morning, we contacted the company to get specifics, as the registration wasn't working properly. Since then, Microsoft has altered the text and sent us the following statement: "Unfortunately we don't have any details to share at this time."

    We'll take this as a case of "switch flipped too early."

    If you are reading this message you have successfully completed your registration for the program and no further action is necessary at this time. The program will officially start within the next two weeks, at which time all registrants will receive an e-mail update informing you of your program status. Until then, please be patient and check back on this site for general program related updates.

    Xbox LIVE Update Program - Fall 2011
    We appreciate your interest and support in helping us to test out the latest updates. This is an important update as we continually strive to improve our products and we could not do so without the help of our great Xbox community.
    When do I Register My Console(S):
    This year we have a new model for console registration so you were not asked to manually provide it during initial registration (as was the case in previous programs). We will provide details on the new process via this portal as soon as we are ready to start having consoles registered
    What to Expect:
    As part of this program, an update will be pushed out to your registered console(S) that will include select dashboard features including:
    • New Metro design with integrated Kinect voice and gesture controls
    • Beacons
    • Facebook Sharing
    • Cloud Storage for Game Saves and Xbox LIVE Profile
    Other features and entertainment partner apps may also come into view during the program period and will be messaged via this portal.
    Administrative Note: If you were in previous programs you will notice a few changes on the navigation available on our Connect Site. Same basic structure, but primary navigation is available by clicking on Xbox LIVE Update Home link on the upper left-hand navigation of this page. At the bottom of that page you will find links to all relevant program information.

    lol the sites getting http 500 too much traffic lol

    For those familiar with previous registrations for our program, we have a new model for registering your consoles this year. The new model is a more automated process that should make it easier for you. We will notask you to type in your console information upon initial registration; once you are approved to participate in the program, look for details on our portal about how to register your console

    I am sure they have started it earlier before like close to 2 weeks but not the full 2 weeks. They'll update us when they're ready.

    Anyone else having javascript errors and lag on digiex?
