At E3, Microsoft announced a new Xbox LIVE dashboard that will supposedly be an improvement over the current one, but we'll have to wait until that update finally happens to see if it's true. Or do we? If you are willing to fill out a rather brief survey, you can register to participate in a preview program to test out the new system.
I'm hoping for better Kinect integration, and I am really looking forward to having better Facebook integration. I don't care about posting to Facebook or browsing Facebook on my Xbox. I want my Achievements on there, and right now, Raptr is doing that thing again where it doesn't want to update and post anything. Sony can do it with PS3 Trophies, so I don't know why it's taken Microsoft so long to get their act in gear.
Anyway, if you'd like to apply to test out the new dashboard ahead of the actual release, just click here and fill out the survey. It's actually easier to apply than in past updates. They're not asking you to fill in your console ID numbers at this stage... presumably once you're selected you will, but that's one less headache to worry about at this point in the game!
