Sign Up for the Next PS4 System Software Update Beta

Learn how you can be added to future betas automatically and receive an exclusive PSN avatar in the process.

Brian Dunn's Avatar Posted by Sr Product Marketing Manager, SIEA

We’re getting ready for the next major system update for PS4, and can use some help from PS4 owners to test it out ahead of launch. 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. And good news for Canadian folks – beginning this beta, PS4 owners in Canada are also able to register for the beta testing.

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

Beta testers for our previous major system software update, version 5.00, got a preview of features like Family on PSN, friend list management, message improvements 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 system with an internet connection and SEN account. And remember — you can roll back to the previous system software at any time.

And starting this beta, you can choose to be added to future betas automatically without having to register again. If you choose to do so, you’ll receive an exclusive PSN avatar.

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! Your feedback helps us make the system software update even better.

I would like to see technical info relating to connection, with real time numbers relating to speed, latency, line quality, NAT, port numbers for the PSN and the game that is loaded at that time.

For 5 years I have had nothing but problems playing PvP and multi player games, always milliseconds behind everyone else, even in PvE my body count is significantly lower than others (no, I don’t need to “get gud scrub”) regular friends notice and are surprised when the count is shown, now it’s a running joke. Enemies die after I have finished shooting, the lag is real and I cannot find out why. And I want a PSN facility to analyse what is happening.

I have had different UK ISP’s, different routers (Nighthawk with QoS, Bt home hub, Hub 5 etc) even connected just the modem(open NAT), I have a PS4 Pro, a 2 ms gaming monitor and new ASDL/ Ethernet cables, I don’t use wifi wifi, have tried different DNS, am port forwarded, UPnP, tried DNZ, manipulating MTU, static addresses, I Am with Virgin Cable and get what I pay for, 200 mbps down, 12 up, and quality tests say I have superb low latency quality connection.

Username changes, individual people volume control must be added for parties. Tired of trying to get volumes right for everyone and asking them to change their mic sensitivity. Different save data banks for one account.
