Director of Programming at Microsoft Larry Hyrb, 51, is promising new software updates will vastly improve the Xbox One experience.

“The team is working hard to deliver some exciting updates in March that will make Xbox One even better,” Hyrb posted on the Xbox blog on Feb. 20. “But in order to ensure our customers have the best experience on Xbox One and Xbox Live, we need the help of our passionate community.”

This means that Microsoft is currently choosing Xbox Live members to sample new features coming to the next-gen console in a March system update. Chosen users will also test out future system updates as they roll out – providing valuable feedback for Microsoft before updates are made available to the international public.

Selected users will receive an Xbox Live message with a token to register. The next system update will launch next week to chosen participants, who will gain access to a private forum where they can provide feedback or opt out of future tests.

Last week, Chief Product Officer Marc Whitten announced new updates coming in March. Some were designed to improve the experience of upcoming first-person shooter “Titanfall,” while others will improve the party and multiplayer experience on the next-gen console.
