Forum user -Alex- gave us a heads up in Neowin Back Page News that Microsoft is requesting beta testers via a somewhat vague e-mail. The e-mail requests that participants fill out a survey, which they will use to pick the best beta testers for the job. Judging from the survey itself, Microsoft could be looking to test out new games on an array of devices, including the PC, Xbox, and even Zunes and mobile phones. No guarantees, of course, but this looks like it'll turn out some interesting results. Click "Read More" for more info and a copy of the e-mail that was sent out.

Dear Microsoft Game Studios Beta Tester,
We are gearing up for a year of great betas. To prepare for these upcoming betas we have a new survey on the beta website. Please follow this link to access the new survey: Survey. We will be using this new survey to select participants for our betas. If you do not complete this new survey, you will not be able to participate! But don't worry, the survey is quick and painless.
Remember, we are always looking for all types of game players. Whether you play once a year or every day, whether you pre-order the latest consoles or wouldn't think of paying for a game - we want feedback from you! If you know of someone who would be interested in participating in the Microsoft Game Studios Beta program, please feel free to forward this mail or direct them to: https://connect.microsoft.com/mgsbetas.
