Games for Windows - Live Beta Announcement and Invitation

Are you interested in being part of a select group that is invited to help beta test a new service that lets PC game players connect with their friends on the Xbox through the LIVE gaming network? If you are, please read on. The registration period for this upcoming beta testing opportunity will only be available for a limited time. To be considered you will need to complete the Games for Windows - Live Beta application survey. Please only submit the survey once. Multiple entries will not improve your chances at being chosen. Those who are selected will be contacted with more details in the coming weeks. All eligible beta participants will be entered in a drawing(s) for prizes.

To fill out the survey:

  1. Click here to access the survey. If you experience issues accessing the survey and you are using IE, please close your browser windows and clear out your cookie cache then try accessing the survey again.
  2. You will be prompted to login with your Windows Live ID if you haven't already done so. If you have registered previously on Connect, you will skip to step 5 if you login with the same Windows Live you used to register previously.
  3. If you have not previously completed the Connect registration form, you will be presented with the Terms of Use agreement, then you will navigate to the Connect registration page. You must agree to the Terms of Use agreement prior to registration.
  4. Once you have completed the Connect registration page, you will navigate to the survey page.

The invitation was sent to my email and I filled it in, it said they will contact me in a few weeks and let me know if I was accepted, hope I got in!

Its just letting you know you've been accepted into the application process. Those that are selected to participate will be notified via email in the next couple of weeks.

I think it just means your in the Live Application Process because on My Connect it says that im active in the "Games for Windows – Live Application Procesm" program, not the beta.

amazingly it told me i was accepted as soon as i finished the survey...right below the same paragraph saying it would contact everyone within a few weeks if you meet the qualifications. not sure if those was an error or not. I also didn't lie to the survey and told them I'm still using Windows XP. I'm thinking this will end up needing windows vista but i'm not sure 100%.
