Xbox 360 Dashboard Beta closed due to overwhelming demand

by William Schwartz on July 26, 2012


Apparently there were many Xbox 360 users that were waiting to get in on the upcoming beta for the new Xbox 360 Dashboard.  So many in fact that if you missed this morning’s small window of opportunity to get into the beta, you’ll likely need to wait with the rest of the community to see the new features.

One of the most anticipated new features coming to the Xbox 360 in the next dashboard update is the Internet Explorer functionality.  This will be a first for the Xbox 360, as it has been browser-less for the entirety of this generation.  Personalized recommendations and an enhanced category search feature will also be included in the beta, but these sign-ups are now closed.

Hopefully they’ll implement a feature on the new dashboard that actually allows you to easily find the content that you own, that would be the best feature of all.  On the off chance that the beta re-opens, you can find the registration page here.

    Im using the IE browers on xbox right now and it is all right for IE. The only downfall is that you cant download flash player so you cant play videos on youtube. But I guess that is what the app is for. And you cant use your mouse. Which is also irritating. But it loads pretty fast. For IE of course.

    Dude.. its a beta.. Its not perfect..

    Dude, its Internet Explorer, Microsoft. It will never be good….. no downloads and no video watching with no mouse support. I feel bad for people that are going to rely on this as their main internet source.

    B.E.T.A stage.

    I think you missed that part

    You act like its in alpha stage. lmao. Beta is near completion, not months from completion. I have a right to complain about problems in beta. That is what beta is for. I think you missed that part.
