Sony has opened up beta registration to the PlayStation 4's new System Software update (firmware 5.50) for those residing in Japan, North America, and Europe. Applicants must be 18 years or older, have access to the master PSN account and a reliable internet connection. If you want to test the new 2018 system update, you have until January 23 (Japan) or February (North America) to apply, after which applicants will no longer be accepted.
Currently, there is no information on what will be included with the new firmware update, details typically follow shortly after the end of the beta period. What we do know is that PlayStation users can expect to see minor tweaks and enhancements to how the system handles software, as well as fixes for regularly occurring bugs and errors. In addition, should any errors occur for testers with the new update at any time, they will be able to return to the previous firmware version.
