Microsoft are looking for beta testers for the next Xbox 360 system update, which will include support for an “updated disc format”.
“We are conducting an open call for US based participants for a public preview to help us prepare for an updated Xbox 360 disc format,” says community chap Major Nelson on his blog.
“This is an important update as we continually strive to improve our products and we could not do so without the help of our great Xbox community.” Quite.
The real treat for signing up for the trial? A copy of Halo: Reach, which is probably worth the effort. Shame it’s US only, but that’ll be those “disc distribution limitations” at play again.
Applications from Gold members (so to speak) will be prioritised.
