Sign Up for the Xbox 360 Dashboard Beta

xbox dash beta

Major Nelson has revealed that the public beta sign ups for the new Xbox Live dashboard are available. The key changes with this update are:

System stability/performance improvements.
Retiring of Microsoft Points in favor of real world currency.

So, what do you guys think about Microsoft Points going away – a good or a bad thing? I’ve generally heard more complaints about the conversion rate over people preferring the points system, so I expect a lot of people will be happy about this. You can see the entire post from Major Nelson here.
