Sony Opens Beta Registration for PS4 Firmware Update 5.0

Sign-up now for a chance to try out the next big firmware update for PS4, 5.0.

Sony is moving full-steam ahead with PlayStation 4 firmware update 5.0. The team has opened up beta registration for interested players, though they have yet to confirm any features coming with the update. Those selected to participate will be sent a voucher to download the software.

Numbered updates like 5.0 typically include some of the biggest overhaul’s to the system’s software. For example, last year’s firmware update 4.0 added the Quick Menu, Folders, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) support. Meanwhile, 3.0 added Events, Communities, posting video clips to Twitter, and much more. So, firmware update 5.0 has a lot to live up to.

We’ll let you know when Sony announces what all is coming in 5.0.
