Sony is Looking for People to Beta Test Future PS4 System Update


Sony just announced via PlayStation Blog that they need people to beta test their future PS4 system update. This update won’t improve only our beloved stability but instead it will be a major one(most likely firmware update 3.00), which leaked a few weeks ago.


As seen in the link, this update will include the ability to broadcast on YouTube, the ability to share short little clips of video on Twitter and much more. To enter the beta test you’ll have to go here.

A few more details regarding the beta:

You will need a PS4 system (of course), an Internet connection, and a master account — sub-accounts cannot participate in the program. Make sure you’re a member of the PlayStation Forums in advance to get access to our beta forums. Also, beta testers will be able to roll back to the previous PS4 system software update (v2.57) anytime.

The beta program will start in early September*, and we’ll have more information on the new features included at that time. We are accepting a limited number of beta testers, so if you’re interested, sign up sooner rather than later.

* According to the European PlayStation Blog, the date is September 2nd.

Let us know if you’ll enter the beta test in the comments below.
