Is this like previous beta programs that doesn't let you get on LIVE until the update is final? Thanks in advance.
There have been no previous programs like that. I know that people who have updated to beta dashboards that were leaked and were not admitted themselves are disallowed from accessing Xbox LIVE. Other than that, however, no official beta testers have ever, to the best of my knowledge, been preventing from using Xbox LIVE during testing. That would pretty much defeat the purpose of the beta.
