How to Sign Up for the PS4 System Software Beta

John Koller's Avatar Posted by Vice President, PlayStation Brand Marketing, SIEA

Calling all PS4 fans! Before we launch our next major system software update, we’re running a beta program to test its functionality. If you’d like to get a sneak peek at the features of the new system software, and help us with feedback on ways to improve it, sign up today.

PlayStation

You can sign up to be a beta tester here. 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.

Thanks in advance for helping test the system software update — your feedback will go a long way toward making this even better.

I was in the last one (it wasn’t open to the public like this one) and it turned out well.

Soooo, yep. Lemme at this one too.

What are the new features? Signing up for something I know nothing about just feels foolish. Especially when you’re dealing with something that could hurt the console itself. I’ve already had to deal with a broken PS4 that was less than a month old.

    Now there’s a reasonable response to the blog post.

    Beta testing is just that. TESTING. If you see no purpose in it, then you are not the type of person who should even sign up for it.
    Beta testing is done specifically to debug software to help stabilize it for public release. Testers need to be FLEXIBLE and open minded.

    Nothing personal, but your comment shows that you would not make a good Beta Tester. You have a pre-set negativity towards the PS4, and so would most likely miss subtle coding errors expecting more catastrophic problems that might or might not occur.

I’d love to test out new features and give great feedback. I want to shape the future of PlayStation to be Epic at it’s finest.

I was on board with the last System Software Beta, but was ineligible because I’m Canadian; here’s hoping I participate in this one. I signed up with fingers crossed.

    If you run into any issues, beta testers will be able to roll back to the previous PS4 system software update (v2.57) anytime. So you should be fine.

    PatricioUSA said:

    August 19th, 6:36 pm

    Well.. if it does brick it… you won’t be able to rollback. lol

I’m really hoping to see the new software. Hopefully there’ll be some kind of custom folder options, as that’s my most wanted feature, but it’d be nice to see what else has been added.

ATOMS11 said:

gamer_316 said:

August 19th, 11:04 am

It’s nice tjhat we’ll have the option to revert to the previous firmware, my question on that though is can we keep on switching between the 2 or is it a 1 time only deal? Also will YouTube streaming be functional in the beta?

denispofr said:

August 19th, 11:04 am

I’M IN !!!!!!

SecondVariety said:

August 19th, 11:05 am

The new streaming options sound good. Let’s hope that the program has plenty of slots.

TesseractE said:

August 19th, 11:06 am

I’m very much in. I was just asking on another site about how to sign up for Beta testing PS4 Firmware a DAY ago. XD

I love doing this stuff… Had Windows 10 on my laptop since January, and have been beta testing for Playstation since the old GAP days with Ratchet and Clank: UYA and Everquest Online Adventures.

Looking forward to this! ^^d

Great initiative by Sony. Hopefully given that timely and well constructed feedback is given, we can get an overall better software experience with new releases.
