So has anyone been accepted to participate in this?

I have been and the changes are aright but its knackered my gamer score :S

I had 17,655 which is what it shows on the new achievement progress screen yet on my gamer tag score and score on the top corner it says 17,595?

How odd! any ideas?

no i was just wondering if anyone else was having any problems with the new update.

I don't really care much for the achievements points to be totally fair, was mealy wondering if anyone else had problems!

If your not going to put anything helpful then just don't bother posting

It's not optional. Come 11 August then you will have no choice but to install the update if you want to use Live.

#15
Can u get it now or did u have to register previously to get it?
#16
We got in on the first wave.
You have to register. Go to MajorNelson.com
http://majornelson.com/archive/2009/07/28/preview-program-emails-are-being-sent-out.aspx

Btw, it´s not a Beta. It´s a preview :thumbsup:
#17
It's released in less than two weeks anyway, so by the time you register and (possibly) get accepted it will probably already be out!

WARNING: Do NOT remove your hard drive and place it on another console!
This will cause non registered consoles to be unable to connect to Xbox LIVE until we release the update!

I put my Hard drive in to my GF's console :thumbsup: and the system updated, I was a bit :? concerned that I had, killed her live for 2 weeks, so I removed my HDD and put hers in, again the system did the update and now she has the preview also.

She never applied for the preview.
#21
Fwibbs, what's the list of changes dude?

Suppose it will mean iX 1.7 is needed too lol
#22
I've got this preview.. best change for me is things on the marketplace are showing up within about 2 seconds. It was taking about 45 seconds for me to get the link to buy things before :roll:

Can't believe the prices of the clothing and stuff though - won't be buying any of that! :)
[mod]#23
Yes, the speed of marketplace is almost as good as the US one now. :) Best thing by far.
#24

The video clip link pretty much shows everything... some things I can remember off the top of my head are:

~ Avatar store - buy clothes, and accessories for your avatars.
~ Avatar Awards - receive rewards for your avatars from certain games.
~ Auto reconnect from Parties.
~ Ability to rate games from 1 - 5 and see average ratings on the Marketplace before you purchase a game
~ Extra bit on your achievements section which shows the total achievements from all your games, and which games you have got all the achievements in.
~ Faster Marketplace
~ An icon to show how long you've been a member of Gold for (and references to receiving other things in recognition of this?)

Can't remember the other stuff.....
