Microsoft announced today that the beta for Team Dakota's ambitious game-builder Project Spark is now available on Xbox One. The beta was originally released on Windows 8.1 devices in December 2013, and more than 250,000 people signed up for that period, Microsoft said.

You can sign up for the Project Spark Xbox One beta today through the game's website. If you're already in the Windows 8.1 beta, you'll also receive access to the Xbox One beta. It's not clear if or when a beta will be offered on Xbox 360.

Using Project Spark, you can create your own games and movies, or try out other community-made creations. Project Spark also features cross-platform capabilities, allowing you to build a game on Windows 8.1 and then continue playing on Xbox One, or the other way around.
