Sign Up for the Next PS4 System Software Beta

John Koller's Avatar Posted by on Feb 17, 2016 // Vice President, PlayStation Brand Marketing, SCEA

Last September we put a call out to PS4 owners to test out our next system software update and since we’re getting close to the release of our next update for PS4, we wanted to do it again! Starting today you can sign up to be a beta tester and get a sneak peek at some of the features making their way to your PS4.

PlayStation

Click here to sign up. The beta program will kick off in early March, and if you’re part of the program, you’ll receive an email with instructions on downloading the system software. You can roll back to the previous system software at any time, so don’t worry about downloading the beta. In order to sign up, you’ll need a PS4 with an Internet connection and a master account. We’ll share more details on the new features you’ll be able to test when the beta begins.

Be sure to join the PlayStation Forums to get access to our beta forums, so you can discuss the new features. We will be monitoring the forums throughout the beta. And while we can’t always implement changes suggested by the community, it’s super valuable for us to hear your feedback to help guide the direction we take. We’re always listening!

I want to personally thank everyone who signed up for the last beta, and I hope all of you (and those who didn’t, too) will sign up again. Don’t wait too long — we’re accepting a limited number of beta testers, so get in now before it’s too late.

Thanks for this.

1. Please add plug and play support for external HDD on PS3 and PS4. Also on the PS3, please remove the 10% HDD reserve for future OS update.
2. Please support 2 step verification for PSN. And also enable a pin login.
3. Please support Ultraviolet.

Thanks.

    Dude I felt like the 3 things you just asked for are the 3 most unimportant things to the majority of the PS4 community. Also why are you even mentioning PS3 this is a post about a PS4 firmware update not a PS3 firmware update.

    Why 2-step verification? If someone is logging into your account from their home then change your password.


     

    + TwinDad on February 17th, 2016 at 6:49 am said:

    2-step keeps them from logging into your account at all. There should be no reason to have to change a password. When my account is used on a new apple device, I get instant notification, I can block it and report it, and keep my account safe. Ask the people who have phantom PS4 systems on their account if they would like 2-step.

    Nobody can access my MS live account if they do not give the code that is generated, since they can’t get my phone, they can’t get into my account. It should be mandatory on the internet by now. Iran, Russia, Syria, China, and more are trying to break into accounts, it needs to be better secured.

    Thanks @OptimalStorm, @TwinDad, @ANGRYFEAR5, and @Banhammer72. @killinmonk, do you have any source to proof that my request is unimportant to majority of the 40million PS4 users? Is there a law against mentioning PS3 in a PS4 article? @PenguinActual, please go research what is two step verification. FYI, PSN can be access via the web when NOT at home

    Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One supports plug and play for external HDD . The lack fo support on the PS3 and PS4 is unacceptable. I have a 1.5TB HDD in my PS3 and over a 130GB of that HDD usable storage is not accessible due to Sony 10% HDD reserve for future OS update. Sony has a 12GB PS3 that only hold 5GB of the usable storage, therefore, the PS3 do not need 130GB. Please remove this. I have 165 games installed on my PS3 and only have 211GB free. I still have another 130 games that I would like to install. Sony’s network gets hack a lot. Supporting 2-step verification and a pin login is important. Sony is a member of ultraviolet and Sony Pictures support it. Why can’t PS Video?


     

    + nunley33 on February 17th, 2016 at 9:42 am said:

    You know even if Sony was to reduce this reserve amount you wouldn’t get nowhere near the amount you’re looking to get back in free space. The HDD sizes are always less than what was advertised because because of how they calculated it and it was rounded up to be more marketable.

    The Vudu app is free (on both PS3 and PS4). Vudu supports Ultraviolet. There you go – Ultraviolet support on Playstation.

    Now if what you want is to buy videos in the PS store that are Ultraviolet videos, then that’s different, but it doesn’t look like that’s coming any time soon.

    You’ve posted this requests far too many times… at this point, you’re actually hurting your chances of them ever being implemented.

    In fairness no one asked for anyone’s opinions regarding what features they want. Also, I doubt Sony’s going to waste any time on the PS3 and it’s features. It’s been out since 2006, if it’s not there it’s never going to be there.

    Then again, I don’t understand why people get so excited for beta system update.

    Microsoft purchased Skype in May 2011. Playstation Vita was launched in February 2012.

    It could be discussed if it was programmed before or after the purchase, the result is that MS owned Skype released a PlayStation product.

5. If you are unable to support plug and play for external HDD, please change the backup feature to allow individual backup instead of an all backup.
6. Please make PS Now like PS Video or iTunes. Therefore, when a users to buy a game digitally from the PS Store, they can either download it for offline playing or stream it online. To cover the cost of the servers, charge a $5-10 PS Now upgrade fee. This should be with all PS3 and PS4 and be apart of your day 1 digital program. You should also do this with PS2 (and PS3) games re-released on PS4. To cover the upscaling, charge a $5-10 PS4 upgrade fee.

Thanks.

    With regards to PlayStation Now game ownership, it’s not going to happen. The whole concept is still very early in development and hasn’t even rolled out globally. Because of the programmes uncertain future they won’t give ownership of content incase they decide to close the service down. It will come in time though.

    There is a idea on the blog share for purchasing content on PS Now, it is doing quite well. I’d like to see the ability to purchase the PS Now game too. Upgrading might work for others, I’d just like the ability to stream a game I want, when I want, for a reasonable fee.


     

    + gohan16ken on February 17th, 2016 at 8:13 am said:

    @DarklingLewis, I understand why Sony won’t give us a free PS Now copy of previously purchase PS3 digital game (server cost). I also understand why Sony won’t allow us to just outright buy PS Now games (see Onlive). Therefore, I am suggesting to make PS Now like PS Video with an additional fee. Allow users to buy a digital game for $60 and then pay an additional $5-10 fee to OWN a PS Now copy of the game. And for those who have previously purchased PS3 games, we can just pay the additional fee. I believe this would make PS Now like Digital Day 1 and avoid Sony having to get additional licensing agreements. But let us be honest, rental and subscriptions makes more money than ownership. Sony prefers to have us repurchase something instead of giving us BC. Thanks @TwinDad, I read that article and they make some good points pro and against it. This is why I am supporting a reasonable fee instead of just asking for it for free.

And it won’t come to PS3 because PS4 is their focus and it’s done being updated really, i do still use my PS3 though.

Trophy delete like actually delete!!! Ps4 hides 0% trophies I sync sign in on ps3 and they are back -_- allow us to also delete trophies with a % why can’t we do this yet?!

Appear offline PLEASE!!!, Just for those times when you feel like an hour on a single player game without having to explain to your entire friends list why you are being antisocial. :)

I have a question, will we be able to still remote play with ps4 within the beta testing? As I remember it being a problem last time.

Regardless if I get in or not, it’s good to see new features arriving, keep up the good work over there everyone!

+ Fuhr31 on February 17th, 2016 at 3:57 am said:

How long is the Beta? When will these features be pushed to all PS users? Can we opt out or will we be forced in to features and changes that we do not want?


     

    + ImAPirateSoSueMe on February 21st, 2016 at 5:56 am said:

    As stated in the post, you CAN opt out of the beta if you wanted to.

It would be cool if you guys set up an automatic enrollment for those of us that were in the last system beta test and showed good faith that we did our job last time :)

1Please add the option to invite friends through the home screen and no through the game itself

a social page and a TV and movies page
(entertainment page)
A store page a browser page and of course a menu page

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Please add how much time played for games my parents say I spent too much time on 1 game so I would like to know how much time I have in games and for trophies let say you have 50 treasures you have 35/50 treasures simple feature

Please add more voice commands for the camera. Such as the ability to pause and play Netflix or Hulu.


     

    + KazeEternal on February 17th, 2016 at 6:08 am said:

    This has to be supported by hulu and Netflix. They made those apps. Though I do agree that sony should try to encourage better support for this feature.

Hi. I want to see notification on my tv about incomming calls and sms because I always play using my headphones. What do You think about? Is this simple via adding necessary permissions to ps app?

Would love to see backwards compatibility with PS3 titles. I mean come on I poured all this money into my PS3 and have games I can’t play anymore. How about throwing in a few things that your loyal customers have invested in.


     

    + airJordan_Xx on February 17th, 2016 at 4:42 am said:

    I agree it would be nice to have but let’s be real are you really going to play old games on your new console for example let’s say they add it and you go play mafia 2 or la noire your going to be like wow this game doesn’t look so good compared to now. Unless there was a way to make the games look Better. I had ps3 fat 60 gb and before it got yellow light of death I played 1 ps2 game on it he 2 years I had it


     

    + KazeEternal on February 17th, 2016 at 6:14 am said:

    Airjordan. Some of us do play old games still. Right now I’m playing legend of heroes trails in the sky, a psp game on my vita. I’m still playing PS 3 games I haven’t finished right now, I would rather play it using my ps4. This is going to be a bigger problem next gen as graphics plateaus from generation to generation.

    That being said the ps4 can’t support an acceptable form of backward compatiblity for ps3. It can however do so for ps1 classics and ps2 games at no additional cost. I’m certainly for that prospect.

+ Sereal_Killer on February 17th, 2016 at 4:40 am said:

Why not make this beta testing an opt-in opt-out service instead of having to always re-apply for the beta tests.

I do hope for folders and the ability to better sort/hide library items.
also a video chat of any kind would be a nice add-on.
also appear offline and log-on notifications would be nice(must be optional).

I also want PSN-id change but i see this as a psn feature that should be tested first via account mannager and not as an OS feature.

+ suicideking42019 on February 17th, 2016 at 4:42 am said:

the next update should have it to where you can Bluetooth damn near any headset to the ps4. i have a set of turtle beach earforce px4 that i got when i got my ps4 they are Bluetooth but will not connect to ps4 always says file type not supported, this would be a major fix maybe then i wouldn’t have to run this wire from my controller to headset just to be ale to chat.

Not really a PS4 problem due to the library but man would I love the ability to sort / filter items on the download list. This is on the web site and the PS Vita. Having it display all items, even demos I downloaded 5 years ago on a different system, is just silly.

    forgot to add i also want the small media player back because you cant launch any music atm when you are already playing a game.
    You have to remember to launch spotify/media player before you start a game.

    If you already have the discs, surely you’d still have the console, right?


     

    + Adrenalynx on February 17th, 2016 at 1:19 pm said:

    You can never play ps2 discs on a ps4.. just like you couldnt on ps3 without having a b/c system, which cost more than the other systems, and was discontinued due to cost. Keep your old systems to play old games, or pay a fee to play the downloadable upgraded versions

I know it is already possible to remove the games with zero trophy but not delete those that were complete 1% …

Can have a setting where you can change where the notifications are cause it is so annoying when I get a notification while playing call of duty and bring back when a friend comes online because i am sick of constantly checking if someone has come online yet.

    Oh about the notifications display, maybe on the right and not the left or the middle,bottom etc

+ PanTheMan16 on February 17th, 2016 at 5:33 am said:

1) Add all of the features that the PS3 had and integrate them as well as they are on PS3. Once PS4 catches up to PS3, we can start thinking about new things.

Allow us to import and export music, photos and videos the same way we could last generation. Allow us to create music playlists, and then encourage game developers to support them as BGM in games, like we could in GT5, for example.
Allow us to mass delete our messages. Allow us to mass clear our upload history.Allow us to appear offline. Revamp the UI so the friends list is prominent, as it was on PS3, and not a tucked-away category (isn’t this supposed to be “the most socially-connected console”?)

So yeah, I don’t ask for much. Only that the PS4 be as good as the PS3 was, if not better.

No more group messages, friends hate being in one group with a burning passion, they get so mad to be honest! So instead of group messaging have it where messages are sent to each individual thats been checkmarked
