Want the NXE early? Watch MajorNelson.com

From gameplayunlimited.blogspot.com:


Major Nelson's latest podcast has hit the web and in it is an interesting tidbit.

* "Major Nelson: "...I know you as my audience, you guys, you like to pick up and play. You want to get your hands on it and I don't blame you because you'll enjoy it. In fact, if you want to get your hands on it, let me just say this.......keep an eye on my blog next week. If you want to get your hands on it early, that's all I'm going to say."
* E: "So let me make sure I understand this, so if I were a listener to the podcast."
* Major Nelson: "Correct"
* E: "And I wanted to have access to the New Xbox Experience before November 19th. I should visit MajorNelson.com on a regular basis."
* Major Nelson: "That's pretty much what I'm saying"
* E: "Okay, interesting.
* Major Nelson: "I'm not going to say anything more"
* E: "I wonder what that means"
* Major Nelson: "Stay Tuned. So New Xbox Experience coming November 19th....or earlier to a few of you."

This sounds interesting, wonder what it might be... Some kind of beta-evaluation program for invited people only ?!

I think they just want to spread the update over a couple of days or else their servers would take a big hit if everyone installs it at the same day.

My thoughts exactly, as big as the update is it will take a while and I'm betting it will kill the M$ servers.

I'm going to laugh when you're an uniformed idiot... Oh wait, I'm already laughing.

Seriously though, I want in early.

Kotaku claims they have a disc of NXE in route to them, for review. Maybe other reviewers will get them to and inevitably, leeeeeeak.

If this comes true could some kind soul possibly submit the method how to get it to XS news.

All I want is the backup and play from hard drive option nothing more.

It would be good if someone from the scene could get their hands on this first to properly dissect it. Who knows what might be in this update...

I thought the same thing, I sure wouldn't try the beta and I'll wait a few days also to install the update, given Microsofts track record for putting out unreliable products, there is a pretty good chance that this update will wreck Xbox's as some of the past updates have.

I would download the NXE as soon as it becomes available, even in a pre-release like MN announced. I don't care, have plenty of warranty on my console.

For this to work, people would actually have to be looking forward to NXE.
