Microsoft is looking for thousands of Xbox 360 Live members to test a new Xbox 360 disc format.
“We are conducting an open call for US based participants for a public preview to help us prepare for an updated Xbox 360 disc format,” Major Nelson, the gamertag for Microsoft Xbox Live’s programming director Larry Hryb, announced on his blog.
“This is an important update as we continually strive to improve our products and we could not do so without the help of our great Xbox community.”
The current device uses DVD-9 format discs, which are single-side discs capable of holding 7.95 gigabytes of data. It is predicted that the company would like to upgrade to DVD-18, which is a basically a two-sided DVD-9.
Earlier this month, gaming blog Kotaku reported that more than 20 million people log onto Xbox Live every day. Around the same time there was loose speculation that Microsoft was working on an Xbox 360 successor.
