This is one of those good news, bad news situations, depending on who you ask. If you’ve been itching to try out the new Xbox 360 UI before anyone else and signed up for the preview program, then you should be golden.
However, if you’ve been itching to try out the new Xbox 360 UI before anyone else and didn’t manage to sign up for the preview program yet, then you’re out of luck; Microsoft is no longer accepting applications. For now, at least.
“At this time we are no longer accepting registrations for the program as we have reached our target audience volume,” Xbox voice Major Nelson writes on his blog.
There’s a ‘but’ though!
“Please be on the lookout for additional opportunities in the future to participate in Xbox LIVE Update Preview programs.”
If you got in in time, Microsoft should be in touch with further instructions sometime in the next two weeks.
