A big update is coming for Xbox Live and Microsoft wants it to be tested by Joe Sixpacks like yourself. Starting today, you can register for a chance to preview it before anyone else.

The registration form is here. Microsoft's trying to get a diverse batch of users for the preview so you'll need to fill out a survey in order to put your name in the running. Here are a few other notes on registration from Major Nelson:
  • We’re looking for multiple thousands of participants, so your chances of making it in are good
  • This opportunity is open to all Xbox LIVE Members in regions where Xbox LIVE is available.
  • Just completing the survey does not automatically get you access to the Preview Program. We’ll be making final selections from the completed surveys and send you an email if you are selected.
  • While both box LIVE Gold and Silver members can sign up, Priority will be given to Gold members in the selection process.

Among the features coming in this next update are Movie Parties (streaming movies for multiple Live users), an Avatar Marketplace (premium items for your Live Avatar), and Games on Demand (downloadable Xbox 360 games).
