Xbox 360 System Update: Testers to get Halo free

By Updated on

Microsoft has started the ball rolling with their next Xbox 360 System Update, and has announced they are looking for testers for the System Update Preview program. Those who are lucky enough to get selected will receive a free copy of Halo: Reach.

Jason Andrews from thisisxbox.com is reporting in an article that to be able to register for the opportunity, you have to be an Xbox Live member and live in the US. Microsoft is conducting the testing in preparation for an updated Xbox 360 disc format.

They see the testing as a way to improve their products and like using the Xbox community to achieve their goal. To register your interest you will need to head over to the Microsoft Connect site and sign in using your Windows LIVE ID, which is connected to your Xbox LIVE Gamertag.

You will then have to fill in a survey, and the Connect site will give you program related updates. When the selection process is finished you will receive a mail. It is advised you read the survey slowly to make sure all the information you provide is correct.

Both Xbox LIVE Silver and Gold members can register their interest in the testing, but priority will go to Gold Members. Microsoft are said to be looking for thousands of testers for its System Update Preview program, so you will have some chance to be accepted.

Will you be signing up for the testing program?
