Sign Up For the Next PS4 System Software Beta

Andrew Kelly's Avatar Posted by Sony Interactive Entertainment America

It’s nearly time for another major system software update for PS4, and we could use your help beta-testing before it launches. Starting today, you can sign up for a chance to be a beta tester and get an advance look at some of the improvements and new features coming to PS4.

You can register to be a beta tester anytime between today and the start of the beta in early February. Users must be 18 years or older. Once the beta starts, we’ll close registration.

Beta testers for our last system software update, 4.00, got to see things like our overall PS4 UI refresh, Folders, the revised Quick Menu, and much more before launch.

If you’re part of the program, you’ll receive an email with instructions on downloading the beta version of the next system software. In order to sign up, you’ll need a PS4 with an internet connection, and access to a Master Account. And remember — you can roll back to the previous system software at any time.

We’ll be back soon with an update on the features you can expect in the beta.

Many thanks to everyone signing up — especially our returning beta testers! You’re helping us make the system software update even better.

    It’s always good to integrate other devices, another word diversity is a must. I record my game plays and it would be nice if I can access them through my iPhone PlayStation app for further editing and entertaining purposes. I see you also have a community app as well in the AppStores, enabling Video posting and Gifs would be an excellent add-on to the community….from there we can even enable video broadcasting to the members.

    Considering that the last major update has my system acting sluggish occasionally, to the point that I have to debug once or more a month, i am not excited about a further update. But by all means, sign me up. I would enjoy the opportunity to give direct feedback to the developers and how it affects the non-ps4 pro players.

    How about return the simple feature of letting you know when your friends log on and off line and cd playback. It’s been YEARS we’ve been asking for those features to no avail. Not subscribing to spotify. Please and thank you.

    The author mention “you need PS4 with internet and access to main account” Does that mean you don’t need a PS4 Pro to be part of this beta test? I don’t own a PS4 Pro’ at the moment. The author said this but the picture show the new PS4 Pro’… confused . I enjoy being a beta tester and give feedback. I think some area need improvement, missing-lacks or not worth adding. As a gamer and consumer I don’t mind leading a helping hand to the software developer. Looking forward to PS9

    DarksunDaFirst said:

    January 24th, 6:13 pm

    I certainly hope that they don’t do what other tech manufacturers do when they release new hardware to run on the same OS, then upgrade the OS to a point the old hardware can’t run as efficiently anymore.

Did killing off the studio behind the best portable FPS and one of the most critically acclaimed VR titles afford you guys the opportunity to do this? Or is that money going to fund Knack 2?

    Yes let’s do this I’m pretty excited about this to see what’s new

    drd7of14 said:

    January 12th, 8:14 am

    Guerilla Cambridge developed KZ: Mercenary, not Guerilla. That’s their sister studio. Also developed RIGS. I suppose either the plan was to shut them down, or RIGS hasn’t done as well as they’d hoped. I’m sure they’ll keep the servers up and everything, but that really is a bummer. They are a talented dev. Maybe if RIGS supported non-VR play as well, but after trying the demo out, I can see why it doesn’t. It’s a nice VR experience, very competitive and interesting. Plays like how Overwatch advertises itself as, with the moment. It just looks like a pre-rendered video, as far as how the players move, I mean.

    Anyways yeah…Sucks to see another one bite the dust.

G-Force08 said:

January 12th, 5:06 am

I’ve been in most of these betas, I think I only missed one. Signed up and hoping to keep it going to continue helping make the PS4 even better! You’ll for sure see me on those forums again if I get picked.

As a fresh software engineer, this highly interests me.

Will you be using a ticketing system for bugs we will report like sharepoint, salesforce desk or zendesk?

fSolid said:

January 12th, 5:12 am

Please fix that bug where the controller doesn’t recognize the mic on apple headphones

    fSolid said:

    January 12th, 5:13 am

    Add 60fps recording to the Pro. I still don’5 understand how one can livestream 1080p 60 fps but can’t record it.

    BIET_DOI_DANH_TH said:

    January 12th, 6:46 am

    Assuming you are talking about the Earpods, no the Earpods mic are not compatible with the controller. This is Apple’s fault as they use the three ring system on the jack opposed to th 2 ring system found on most devices including ps4.

Warlock_evil_one said:

January 12th, 5:13 am

I really want to play Mass Effect Andromeda

    fSolid said:

    January 12th, 7:24 am

    Before our current update, the cotroller did recognize the mic. Also, there is this thing to get it to recornize it by pulling the jack in and halfway out fast 3 times. So the problem is clearly on Playstations side.

DuoMaxwell007 said:

January 12th, 5:37 am

Beta test means “big update” the only big thing left you can do to the PS4 is add external hard drove install support. And considering the Nyko Databank cant be used with Slim or Pro an the 2tb in my Pro is already down to having 500gb left, its definitely time for that external HDD support weve been begging for for YEARS… theres no point in updating the system again if thats not whats in it.

    drd7of14 said:

    January 12th, 8:16 am

    Actually, a PRO/Slim version of the Databank is coming.


    DarkTwilightGun said:

    January 12th, 9:58 am

    Or they could allow people to download every tv show and movie they bought on psn to be playable from the Harddrive. Ya know, like the ps3. They could put cd playback in it. Like every other ps console had.

    Ps1 bc isn’t out of the question either

    WolfyHopeless said:

    January 15th, 12:37 am

    Nah dude, there’s a lot more that can be done, and if you’re gonna be that salty about it then maybe you should seek other things to enrich your life with since you can’t seem to handle video games.

smokeydahair said:

January 12th, 5:59 am


Why haven’t you guys felt like your customers deserve notice when you delay your products?

Also, why do i have to resort to reporting you guys to the BBB to get you to deactivate the console of the guy who hacked me? He used my once per 6 months deactivation so you guys refuse to help, and you guys have even accused me of giving away my password. Your reps pretend nothing at all can be done for 6 whole months, yet other people in my position who reported you to the BBB had their hacker’s PS4 deactivated in a week.

Help me instead of forcing me to resort to such tactics. Stop with the abysmal customer service.

I also echo @DuoMaxwell007’s desire. This 2TB bs is not going to fly much longer. Need to just be able to connect a storage device via USB 3. Important.
