Access sign-up through your Xbox 360.

Microsoft has begun beta sign-ups for the Xbox 360 2013 dashboard update.

Unlike previous dashboard beta opportunities, sign-up is now accessed directly through the Xbox 360 dashboard, rather than through an internet page. Like previous betas, space is limited.

The new update is said to boost the system’s performance, and switch the current Microsoft Points currency system to real-world dollars.

Beta sign-up is available for all of Xbox LIVE’s 41 markets, excluding Japan.

Thanks, Major Nelson.

      I haven’t touch mine since Gears of War: Judgement.

    Not to mention reversing DRM & their used games policies still doesnt make me want their console.

    I clicked this story for all the passive aggressive comments.

    Can we sign up to use the original blade dashboard? Or the one that was after that? Because I’d actually do that.

    Have no desire to test the future worse than current dashboard.

      Yeah, I fail to see how the “metro” style is an improvement for anything. It sucks for windows 8, it sucks for this, and the playstation store kind of sucks now for adopting a similar look. It may look prettier, but it’s at a huge cost to convenience.
