    Get NXE Now!

    Just noticed this and i'm quite tempted by it. If you go here its got instructions on how to get the NXE now.
    The only thing you can't do is go on xbox live but i think i can live without that till the 19th. My only fear is, that my xbox will get bricked but i can't see microsoft doing that as i could have just put my friends hdd on who has NXE 'accidently'.
    What do you reckon. Is it worth the risk?

    As Stewart said, 19 days of no XBL is not worth it.

    Living and dying laughing and crying
    Once you have seen it you will never be the same
    Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
    Hard and it is heavy dirty and mean

    Re: Get NXE Now!

    I decided that as i'm working alot soon i can go 19 days so i went for it. All i can say is that its pretty good. It's nice to have my xbox sounding like its not going to take off. The HDD installs are a great idea.

    Its not a hacked software or anything. Its the beta version. the only reason you can't access live is beacuse your console id isn't on the database. Come the 19th every console will be allowed on.
    But you still do it at your own risk

    Yes but if every console is allowed on on the 19th, then obviously apart from those on beta tests, you aren't supposed to be on until the 19th.

    Otherwise MS would just release the file and say here it is, if you install it you can't come online till the 19th.

    The software is the same software that is put on a xbox if a hdd from a NXE one was put onto a normal one. This is what would happen so msft even now about this.

    In participation with this program, you should not move your storage device (hard drive, or memory unit if you do not have a hard drive) to any other console as it will also update that console. If an unregistered console is updated with the NXE update, that console will not be able to connect to Xbox LIVE until the NXE has been officially released on November 19th.
    This is whats happening

    Re: Get NXE Now!

    It doesn't let you connect to live, yes?
    So... Don't TRY to connect to Live.
    Unplug CAT5 or wireless adapter and update?

    MS won't know any different surely?

    And its not a Beta version. The NXE is completely finished. Its a preview program they did to give people a chance to mess around with it early, and make people who didn't get into the preview program angry until Nov 19th.

    There's no Beta about it.

    I thought Finlay had a job along those lines as i've noticed that Finlay always seems to have info about stuff before hand.

    Wish i was a beta tester.

    So why would 'e' in the last podcast by Major Nelson say, and I quote:

    "I do want to be clear, we're calling this the 'Preview Program'. This is not a Beta. At this point the NXE is pretty much fully baked, and we love feedback, and if people give us suggestions, comments, criticisms, we collect that, look at it and consider that in the future."
