The next dashboard update for the Xbox 360 console which is likely to remove Microsoft Points altogether and help ease the gap from Xbox 360 to Xbox One (wonder if Skype will be included for 360?) is going to be in Public Beta Mode very soon… as in just a matter of days!
Major Nelson confirmed the news today:
Unlike our previous beta programs, sign up is now accessed directly through your Xbox 360 console to streamline the experience. Space is limited, so once the spots are filled the beta will be closed to the public. To join, look for the Xbox Beta Program tile on the home hub of the Xbox Dashboard.
On the Home channel at the bottom of the screen is a prompt to download a small app, once installed run the app to complete your sign-up which will then send Microsoft console registration details in preparation for the Beta.
