Sony opens up beta registration for next PS4 firmware update

Sony is offering a closed beta for the upcoming PS4 firmware update that seems to be a major one judging from the jump to system software version 6.00. Applicants must be over 18 years and need to be subscribed to PlayStation Plus or PlayStation Now.

So far, only North American and Japanese accounts can register, but Australia/Europe should be open soon.

PlayStation Japan is now looking for beta testers for the upcoming PS4 firmware update, and it's only a matter of time before Sony Europe and USA will do the same. We still don't have an exact release date for when the full update will go live, but at least we know Sony has the ball rolling.

Currently, the sign-ups are available in North America and Japan while there is no word on when the sign-ups will be available for Europe. Like games, when a new set of numbers is entered, that marks entering a new era of experience. We're curious! We're also curious about what you think will be in the 6.0 patch?
