The next PS4 update seems to be on the way.
Sony continues to refine the PlayStation 4 experience through incremental firmware updates, and it seems we can expect a new one soon, as
PlayStation Blog Japan has just put out the call for gamers who are brave enough to help them beta test the next relatively major update, 5.50.
5.00, “Nobunaga” came to us last October and overhauled a whole bunch of systems relating to community features like friends list management and team tournaments, among other things. The big question here is what 5.50 will bring, since it seems big enough to want a wide pool of beta testers, but not so big as to be worth that whole numeral jump to 6.00.
PlayStation Blog NA and Europe should jump on the testing train looking for their own applicants sometime soon, so if you’re brave enough to risk a less stable OS to check out some new features ahead of time, perhaps look out for it.
