268w ago - Per Major Nelson today: I know that many of you are excited to get your hands on the New Xbox Experience, which will go live all Xbox LIVE regions wide on November 19th.
Well, we're just as excited to as you are so I am happy to announce that I've been working on a little project that I think may interested you.
Working with various teams across Xbox, we've developed a program to allow a select few of you early access to NXE. How do you get chosen? The first step is to head on over to Microsoft Connect, sign in with your Windows LIVE ID and join the "Xbox 360 Fall 2008 Preview Program" by clicking on this link.
Once you do that, you need to fill out the "Xbox 360 Fall Flash Preview Sign Up" survey in order to be considered for receiving the Preview System Update.
We're asking a few questions about where you live, your home network, ISP connection and a few other pieces of information. We are looking for a good cross-section of our members in order to get the best feedback we can.

"We want to keep pace with technology," said Ruth Myers, chair of the TAG consortium that is co-ordinating the day of protests.
The TAG consortium includes the Royal National Institute for Deaf People, the British Deaf Association, Hearing Concern, Sense, and many others.
Added Ms Myers: "We want equality in education, training, the workplace and as consumers and citizens in the information society."
The mass lobby takes place on 3 April and aims to get politicians thinking about ways to help deaf people get at the technology.
Ms Myers said many deaf people still struggled to make good use of the telephone.
She said: "They are bereft of key telephone services that could help them gain equality with the rest of society, educationally and professionally."
There are several different ways that technology can help deaf people chat via the phone:
