Ya it was. But this is some type updated disk. From what I've heard they changed the disk formats. Not quite sure what they did. But it was free.

Maybe this is the new format they were talking about where the 1GB of anti-piracy software was shrunk to allow more content?

It is, I just got my package in the mail as well.

Btw, you don't lose Live functionality for testing this update. They specifically say you'll only lose it if you play the disc in a NON-Preview approved Xbox, which is why you had to give them your console ID number and serial number.

Interesting though, my disc is green but yours (and a friend of mine who got it as well) is silver.

Ya I know. I have 2 xboxs and couldn't remeber which I signed up for on. I was lucky and picked the right one on the first try. The update failed on my first attempt but worked on the second. Thankfully

Mine is also green. I think there are 2 kinds

1. Update is installed over Xbox Live
2. Update is installed from disk

I just got my package today too. The silver disc's are for people who are in the XBOX Live update tester group and the green disc is for the XBOX Disc update tester group.
