John Koller the Vice President of PlayStation Brand Marketing at SCEA has taken to the PlayStation blog today to announce a cool new feature.
That new feature is the opening of sign-up and registration to get the latest updates for PlayStation 4 via the System Software Update Beta testing program.
Anyone who is interested can join the program today to take part in the beta from early August to check it out.
However, you do have to be over 18 years of age to register.
Sony has said that registration will also close once the beta starts early next month.
Sony hasn’t revealed much about the beta yet, but John Koller did explain more with the following:
As you may recall, we ran betas for the PS4’s 3.00 and 3.50 system software updates. Participants got to see all kinds of upcoming features before they were officially rolled out, like Events, Communities, and more.
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, version 3.55, at any time.
If you aren’t already signed up to the PlayStation Forums, make sure to do so. That way you’ll get access to our beta forums to discuss the new features with other testers. We’ll monitor forums throughout the beta, and it’s always valuable to hear your feedback. We’re listening to all the comments we get to help guide the direction we take.
