PlayStation 4’s next software update is looking for beta testers

Sony has officially announced that the PlayStation 4 will be receiving its next software update, and they need to make sure it works before unveiling it to the public. To that end, they’re looking for testers, brave souls to try potentially broken software.

According to the PlayStation Blog, the beta will begin in early September. You’ll need an Internet connection, a master account on the PlayStation 4 in question, and a membership on the PlayStation forums. You’ll be able to roll back to the current 2.57 software at any time (say, when Destiny‘s The Taken King expansion hits on September 15).

There’s no official word yet on features, but it’s expected this update will include a heavy focus on community elements, adding things like YouTube streaming, more ways to share video, as well as lots of minor changes to chat functions.

The number of testers wanted is pretty limited, so if you want to try the newest and latest software, sign up sooner rather than later using the source link below.
