Signups for the Next PlayStation 4 Software Update Are Now Open

For those of you anxious about the update destroying your console with any sort of bugs in the beta, it should be noted that you can roll back to the previous system software at any time. You can register any time between today and the beginning of February as long as you're 18 or older and based in either the US or Canada.

Out of the great blue nowhere, Sony Interactive Entertainment has opened Beta test sign-ups for PlayStation 4 system software update 5.50.

It wasn't all that long ago that Sony delivered PS4 system update 5.0, which was touted as a pretty big update at the time. Sony will accept registrations anytime between today and the start of the beta, which is expected in February. Unless you are successful, we will not contact you regarding System Software Beta. You can always go back to the old software if you decide that you don't like the new one, but make sure to let Sony know first so that they can gather the proper feedback they're looking for.

If you become a tester, you should install the beta test version of the system software on your PS4® during the test period and play the latest system software functions and your game titles.

Additionally, starting with this beta, you can choose to be added to future betas automatically without the hassle of having to register again. If you opt in for additional betas, you'll get a special avatar for your participation.

As mentioned above, Sony haven't confirmed what new features they will be deploying in their next firmware update.
