Sony is giving PlayStation 4 owners the chance to put new versions of the firmware through their paces. The application process is simple, and you can complete it right now.
You can only apply via a master account, so if you are a sub-account holder, ask your parents’ or roommate’s permission. The program is schedule to begin in early September.
If beta users do run into problems, Sony is making it possible to roll back to the last public release. You can sign up here with your PlayStation ID.
