PlayStation 4 system update 5.50 is on its way as Sony is currently opening up beta sign-ups to test out the new upcoming firmware.

At the moment of writing, players can only sign up for the Beta in Japan but the North American and European sign-up pages will probably go live later this day as well.

“The PS4 system software beta test is a test program that enables you to quickly try out functions not provided by publicly available system software”, the Japanese PS4 blog reads.

“If you become a tester, you should install the beta test version of the system software on your PS4 during the test period and play the latest system software functions and your game titles.”

Those interested can register for the 5.50 beta between today and January 23rd. Those applying for the beta must be 18 years or older and be a PlayStation Plus or PlayStation Now subscriber.

The current PS4 firmware was released back in October of last year.
