      Given the problems these updates have, why would I want an invite if I was mad enough to buy an Xbox one to have my machine broken. Again it seem the games industry wants us as puppets to iron out bugs rather than test themselves.

      Which is all good and, well unless you DON'T have a Credit Card then your kinda fooked in that situation.
      I had a problem with my 3G iPod ca.~ 2004 arriving with dead Phones. The Apple Store wanted to have my CC Number to cover the cost of a new iPod at the time. When I told them I didn't have a CC and that my Problem was NOT with the iPod itself but a pair of cheapo >10.00€ Headphones that came with it I had to agree to let them Keep the 'Phones till the replacement came back into their store....

      So no not really bending over backwards then....

      Besides why the Blueberry Hell would I want to be the first to ßeta test their otherwise craptacular Firmwares. I'd only consider it if I had a NAND or, NOR Flasher, and was at least able to downgrade i.e. re-flash an earlier Dump back to my Failbox. At least in this way, and to be fair.... The only "benefit" I can see would be the ability to sniff out such exploits, and bugs as otherwise possible. But, that would assume that MicroSoft actually wanted that to happen... No I think this is just another way to ßeta-test their craptacular Firmware to prevent such massive "Bricking" thats being reported with almost every Firmware that hits it.
