Microsoft are now allowing people to enter their public beta for Xbox Live, Major Nelson revealed on his blog today. It waves good bye to Microsoft points. Once you’re in the beta it takes 1-2 business days to take affect.

We’re not sure what happens to the Microsoft Points you already have, so we suggest spending them quickly (The Walking Dead 400 Days is out today).

Unlike the previous betas, with this one you simply sign up via the dashboard. It’s first come first served, so be quick. There will be an FAQ up later, here. It’s going to roll out across 41 territories.
