That's strange. In any case, I wouldn't expect anyone just added to the preview program to get that invite; my guess is that that ship has sailed.

I'm updating manually now. I'll try out the 3D when it's done.

??? So they can come out with a quick fix for this, but they still can't fix the borked surround audio from the apps and HDMI input that has plagued the XBOne since launch. I checked it again last night with the current version from the preview program. The issue is still there. Surround audio erroneously comes out of the rear surrounds in a 7.1 setup when using an app or the HDMI input. It is very annoying when audio is mapped to the wrong channels.

No doubt an order of magnitude more people noticed and complained about the 3D video stuttering. You're the only person I've heard complain about these audio issues. Not to imply that they're not there, they just aren't bothering many people. (Of course, I don't care because I'll never use it for anything other than playing games ).

I played a few scenes from Tron Legacy after installing the latest patch, and 3D playback appears to be fixed. I can finally retire the old PS3...

EDIT: After watching a little longer, I did see a couple of instances of stuttering. It didn't happen every few seconds like some people were complaining about, but maybe they still have some issues to iron out.

What I'm seeing isn't a malfunction in the glasses due to IR interference. I see it with the glasses off. Stuttering may not be the best way to describe what I see. It's a full on freeze for about a half second for every 2-3 seconds of playback.
Is this with Active or Passive 3D glasses?

I don't know, but it seems strange that they would put the option in the Preview dashboard app if they won't add new people. Frequently updates are to the friends feature and you can't test them if you don't have friends in the program.

That does seem odd. I was wondering if the program expired and the option to invite friends just hadn't been removed yet. If they are still open to more people joining the preview update, I wonder why they don't send out another mass invite?


I also did not get included in the original invite. At the time I didn't see it as a big deal but each month with the new features being added, I get a little itchier to try things out sooner rather than later.

The Preview Dashboard app is fairly new (released on the 1st of July). It lets you comment on and rate the current release, read announcements, fill out surveys and polls, manage your registration, invite friends, report problems, request features (soon), etc, etc.

I think that they might do some sort of vetting new invitees, perhaps to make sure that they frequently use their consoles. (Although you'd think that they could do that automatically and quickly).

They probably don't do another wide invitation because they don't need any more people, even if they're willing to add more of the participants' friends. The Preview program is for their benefit, not ours. They need a large group of people willing to try new releases and possibly put up with broken features.

You could be right on the vetting of new invitees. In all honesty I haven't used the One all that frequently lately. There's no current content on it that is all that compelling to me and I'm not a huge fan of the UI with some of the apps.


I get that the preview program is for their benefit, as is any sort of beta, but that doesn't take away from the excitement of being a part of something new and MS is excelling at offering new features on a very consistent basis, which makes wanting to be a part of the bigger picture even more compelling.

Yep, I'm still getting judder too, although not nearly as bad as before.

Active. Good news is 3d is working perfectly on the PS4 (so far) so at least I can switch to that for 3D playback until MS gets the app ironed out through the preview program.

So, I have a question about the EA deal. Is this the only way that I can play a "demo" of Madden 15 before it comes out ?

I think part of the deal is a first look at Madden 15... right ? Which is basically a demo of the game... right ?

So, of course they won't have a normal demo, cause they are saving it for this program, thus the only way I'll get a demo of Madden 15 is thru this program. Same thing with Fifa 15 and NHL 15 ? It's kinda sneaky how they are charging for demo access. I'm considering signing up for the EA deal, but I was thinking of just paying the $5 mainly just to play Fifa 14 for about a month, and to try the XB1 version of Madden 15. I'd try to time it right before the Madden demo starts, so I might also get the Fifa 15 demo or NHL 15 demo in the same 30 day period. Then I just need to pay for a single month at 5 bucks.

I'm thinking that Sony and EA's relationship might get a little strange over this whole deal, and maybe we won't see many EA demos at all on the PS4, and the demos on the XB1 will be there, but as an incentive to join this program, the demos will be hidden behind this program, rather than being out there for everybody to try. It's going to be really interesting to see how this whole things plays out.

I believe that what will happen is that you'll get a code as a XBL message. Redeem that code and it will install an app; used to be an app called "Xbox One Preview Registration" but since the Preview Dashboard app has a registration option maybe that's what you get. Choose the registration option in the app and following the instructions (you can also use it to unregister).

My impression is that you get to download the full game and play it for 5 days, after which you have to pay for it if you want to keep playing (at a 10% discount). We don't know whether they're going to produce demos for non-EA-Access-subs or not. There are 3 EA Sports demos currently available (all games in the EA Access "vault"). I suspect that there will be a stink if the only way to try an EA game before buying is to subscribe to EA Access and to try it in the 5 days before it ships.
