XBOX Live Beta Testing signup! (http://www.xbox.com/LIVE/beta/default.htm) :)

Xbox Live will launch in Fall of 2002, but a few lucky gamers will get into the Beta-testing program that launches this summer. You can try out the service and games in their pre-release forms, plus tell all your friends that you were one of the first people in the world to go live!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: Not everyone who signs up for the Beta program will be selected. The information in your user profile must meet the necessary criteria in order to be selected.

I hope I get in. Hopefully my chances are higher since I'm in Canada, and not in the US. Of course, that could also set me back just as much...

It's cool that they are going to launch XBL to you guys up north in the great country of Canada, it's going to be kick a s s!

How is the green machine doing up your way?

Good. When I bought it, they were sold out of Xboxes for the first couple weeks, but had plenty of GameCubes and PS2's. Other than that one store though, I don't know. I assume it's doing well, because I have one. :)

I joined the "XBox interactive support" chat room, and they said they could not tell me if you have to be 18. Hopefully 14 year-olds can be selected!

I think the press release video, J Allard stated that they were planing on starting the beta test or signing gamers up as early as next week....Hopefully someone will here something....Good luck to all:)

And Max: I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to go find some XBOX top brass in Redmond and do a little arse kissin'....:D

All you under 18s wondering if you'll be eligible, I have a little info on that to ease your minds. This is not official info or anything, but a student I teach was a beta tester for Morrowind on PC and he is only 15. If that's the case, then I think you would be eligible. I don't know for sure, I'm just guessing. They probably want a good cross section of peeps anyways. Good luck everybody.

I imagine they'll want a wide range of people. Various ages, prefrences, and ISP's.

Some beta's I've been involved in, you had to be 18. Haven't seen any info yet on that though. With only 10,000 spots, maybe it's time to start posting on microsoft.public.xbox again. Not really sure how they'll make the decision.

Hey, that happened to me when I first tried to get on there too. I think once I bumped up to IE 6 it worked, but I don't remember exactly when I ended up gettin on there. I tried back in Feb, and that's when that crap started with me. I gave up until last month and it started working again.

I was getting ready to start a post on this crap this morning, I get to work, and he beat me to it. Oh well, guess I'll have to get another hot topic to start one on:(

I don't know for certain, but if the XBOX Live beta test is anything like their OS public betas you must pay for the beta, then pay again for the real thing.

There probably isn't an age restriction to play, but I think you'll probably need to use a credit card to pay for the beta kit.

I ended up putting UC as my favorite game. Figured that Unreal Tournament is my favorite game on the PC side so why should Unreal Championship be any different. :)

I hope the beta test isn't just NFL Fever. blech.
