Christmas NXE comes early

Preview program punters given update first

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Microsoft has released its New Xbox Experience (NXE) earlier than expected, but only to gamers signed up to the preview scheme.

The software giant’s spokesman, Major Nelson, said on his official blog that everyone who applied to the preview - and submitted a valid console ID – will receive the download “within the next few hours”.

NXE is a free Xbox 360 system update that’ll let you “connect with your favourite people and enjoy more games and entertainment online than with any other device connected to your TV”, Microsoft said.

If you’re one of the lucky few chosen to preview the NXE then you’ll be automatically prompted to download it next time you switch your console on.

But if you aren’t prompted then you’re not part of the preview elite. However, you’ll still be able to download NXE when it’s released to the masses tomorrow.
