New PlayStation 4 System Software Update Beta up for Signups

Head ups, PlayStation 4 owners: Sony just opened beta signups for its next major PS4 system software update, version 5.5.

You can also choose to be added to future betas automatically without having to register again.

Sony has announced that PS4 update 5.50 is on the horizon, with the hardware giant now in the process of testing the patch ahead of its official roll out. It brought in several new features, such as friend list management, and the player feedback was likely extremely valuable.

The company added that players who sign up will "get an advance look at some of the improvements and new features coming to PS4". According to Game Rant, Japanese fans have until January 23rd to sign up.

Players who will apply as a beta tester will need to be at least 18 years old, and have access to the Master account of the PlayStation 4 console that will be used. If you get selected to participate in the beta you'll get an email with instructions on how to download it. If you want to opt out of the trial, you can always roll back to a previous system software version at any time.

Sony has said that "they will be back soon" with what features will be available this time round, so stay tuned for future updates.

If you are in Japan, apply here, European applicants can register here, and those living in the USA or Canada can apply here. So, if you're down with doing some beta testing, you can sign up right now.
