Public Beta

Earlier this summer Microsoft opened up a public beta for the 2012 Xbox Live Update with limited space available for testers. It didn't take long for Microsoft to fill all the seats and due the the amount of interest received, the public beta is once again open for enrollment.

Space is still limited and you can sign up here to receive the Public Beta.  You'll need to agree to a non-disclosure agreement and take a short survey.
