Q: Where do I sign up for a beta key?

A: There is a free Windows 8 to 8.1 upgrade in the Windows Store.
Q: Can I get a beta key for Xbox 360?
A: No, Xbox 360 beta has not been announced, but Project Spark will be available on the Xbox 360 when it officially launches.
Q: Can I get Project Spark for Windows 7, Windows RT, iOS, DOS, Game Cube, Atari 2600, etc.?
A: No. No plans have been announced for Windows 7 or other operating systems. While anything is possible, development for additional platforms would come at the expense of further feature and content additions to the existing game.
Q: Will I need a second key?
A: Once your gamertag has a key, it works on Windows and Xbox.
Q: Can I get a second key anyway?

Q: Will my stuff in the Windows 8.1 beta show up in the Xbox One beta?
A: Yes. Things you create, unlock, or buy in game will carryover between platforms.
Q: Will my stuff in the Windows 8.1 or Xbox One beta show up in the official release?
A: Yes. Things you create, unlock, or buy in game will carryover after the game is officially released.
Q: Help! My key says it’s invalid or has already been used!
A: The most common issue with invalid keys is transposing O (capital letter “oh”) and 0 (number zero). Please retry the key while paying special attention for these characters.
For example, “L7O20“ is L-7-oh-2-zero.
While entering the beta key into the client, you can use copy / paste (even without right-click). Highlight your beta key and copy (or ctrl+C) from the email and in the beta key box in the client, click so the cursor appears and ctrl+V to paste.
Q: Help! I lost my key!
