Xbox 360 dashboard update beta somewhat dated

At Microsoft’s Open House in New York City, along with the various Windows versions, Zune luv, and women in bird costumes(?), some Xbox Live news was released. Although no firm dates were given, the next Xbox 360 dashboard update will be coming soonish.

Jennifer Puzio-Brookes, an Entertainment Manager for Xbox, presented the coming update in a closed door session, running through the Facebook, Twitter, and integration. She also clued us into the fact that a public beta will begin, like the previous dashboard beta, with a select few invites hitting “middle-towards-end of October.”

More information is incoming, but who got into the previous dashboard beta? Let us know in the comments.
