PlayStation 4 System Update 5.0 Beta Registrations Now Open

The PlayStation development team is working on a new system update for the PS4, which will be version 5.0. As with the previous update, they’re asking for help from the community. As they’ve announced on PlayStation Blog, registrations for beta testing are now open for all willing participants.

The list of requirements for participating is pretty obvious and self-explanatory. You’ll need a PS4, an internet connection, and you have to be the owner of the master account. It seems that you don’t have to be a PlayStation Now subscriber to get into the beta, according to Gamespot. Of course, it’s probably better if you are, because that way, you can test out the new update more thoroughly.

Beta testers will be able to opt out of the whole thing at any time and simply roll back to the previous version of the system software. If you do choose to participate, be sure to provide your feedback. The PlayStation 4 Update 5.0 beta will roll out in early August, at which time Sony will announce further details. The post also specifies that the number of beta testers is limited, so you should hurry up if you want to register. That’s all the information we have for now.

If you want to sign up for the Update 5.0 beta testing, you can do so by clicking here. We’ll keep you posted as more information comes out.
