Nothing exciting catches the eye, so I'll sit this one out like last years and just wait for the official release in fall.

Yeah I got the pre-release app today, says it takes 1-2 days to be fully registered and for the update to become available, my lips are now sealed :p

Yeah, got the email so I followed the link back to the portal and clicked on the link that allows you to register your console, got the registration code went on my xbox and put it into the redeem code bit. That let me download the app and then once I opened the app I just had to agree to the terms and conditions and that was it :)

I use to join all those things, but not anymore. The reality is that more than likely, the beta will only last about 5 to 7 days before GA.

I got the XBL code to get the app, but since I'm at work, I can't use it yet obviously lol. Will put it in when I get home and see what happens, but I should be in.

You can still redeem it at xbox.com and add it to download queue :p That's what I did, much easier to just copy and paste.

I've personally hit a snag and can't see the private forum group, get a group not found error. Seems there's a mixup with my forum permissions and it'll take 5 days for them to update?!?!? Too long for something that seems so simple to me.

I've getting that since yesterday. I don't think they are completely ready yet (or somebody forgot to inform the forum admins? :D)

Got the update. Pinning is not nearly as cool as I'd hoped

Downloading the update just now but I assume you can just pin all your favourite games, apps and webpages to a panel on the home screen for easy access. Can't imagine I'll use it much though
