Become an Xbox Live Beta Tester

Set to debut in Fall of this year, Xbox Live will enter beta testing this summer and a select few will be chosen for the trial. Xbox Live is Microsoft's upcoming online subscription service for the Xbox gaming console, which is slated to feature services that potentially go beyond online gaming. Testers will be given early access to Xbox Live services and pre-release Xbox games. Microsoft has opened sign-ups for those interested in being involved in the beta test program. Making heavy use of broadband, Xbox Live will utilize a headset, dubbed the Xbox Live Communicator, not a keyboard or mouse. Match-making will be a prominent feature, allowing gamers to make friends and find other players with similar interests. The ability to instantly switch between games is also rumored to be a key inclusion.

thats because xp requirements are several times higher then 98 and while it dose not crash as much but its far from what linux is, win2000 has 95% of the features that xp dose and runs on half the requirements. xp will never see my hdd

I should be a tester for xbox because, I recently was a playstation fanatic,but when my girlfriend got me an xbox for christmas, I traded in my ps2 and everything with it. And I have been playing games for 15 years. And I know what makes for a good game period!

I have always been told that I am a game freak. All the games that I have played I conquered within three to five days but there was only one game that took me two months and that was splinter cell. Since that game I have not yet come across another challenge like it. I would love to be a tester to be able to put my infuence of greater challenges in the games for xbox.

microsoft should hire me to test all of the new FIFA soccer games. if they did this i would definately be able to tell them what glitches their are. i am addicted to those games and it would be a wise move for microsoft to hire me to test it out before releasing it.
