Sony wants you to sign-up for the PS5 system software beta program

The PS5 is getting a beta program to test new console features, and you can sign-up for it now.

Sony's PS5 system software beta program will allow you to test features before the next major system update comes later this year.

Starting today, you can register for the opportunity to join the first-ever PS5 system software beta program here.

Registration is open to all players over the age of 18 in the US, Canada, Japan, UK, Germany, and France.

If you’re selected to be part of the program, you will be among the first to test out new features and provide feedback that will help guide development.

Once accepted, you will receive instructions on how to download the beta version of the next system software via email.

You will obviously need to own a PS5 console with an internet connection, as well as a need a PlayStation Network account. You will also be added to the potential participant pool for future PS5 system software betas automatically. When a beta ends, you will be able to restore your system software to the latest official release version before the beta ends.

The April PS5 system update introduced USB extended storage, cross-generation Share Play, an improved Game Base, and other UI enhancements and social features.

Sony said it will share information on what to expect with the beta in the coming weeks.
