As we get closer to the official launch of the XBOX 360 Dashboard Beta program later this week, Microsoft has begun registering consoles that are signed up for the beta.

Lucky participants were notified today on how to register their console for the beta. Within the instructions is note that the beta will begin pushing to participants in the next 1-2 days.

The highlights form the new dashboard update feature:

  • New design and Kinect integrated voice and gesture controls
  • Beacons
  • Improved Facebook Sharing functionality
  • Cloud storage for Game Saves and Xbox LIVE Profile

Overall the new dashboard will be moving to the new "Metro" style that Microsoft has been employing across all of their product lines (Windows Phone 7, Windows8) and incorporate YouTube and Bing into the dashboard. This also helps tie together the Windows Phone and Windows platform integration into the Xbox.

Another feature with the new dashboard will be the Xbox LIVE TV service that we've previously covered.

This is one more step towards Microsofts complete 3 screens and a cloud integration of technology that we're certainly looking forward too.
