PS5 Software Beta Program Sign-Ups Are Live Now
The PS5 is getting a software beta program so that you can try out the latest features and updates before they go live to the general public. You can sign up for a chance to be a part of the program now, if you, like Austin Powers’ Richie Cunningham, like to live dangerously.
In order to sign up for the beta program, you have to be at least 18 and living in the United States, Canada, Japan, United Kingdom, Germany, or France. If you’re selected, you’ll get an email explaining how to proceed and get the beta software onto your system, and you can restore your system to the public software once the beta period has ended.
Once selected, you won’t have to go through the process again to register for future beta releases, though you will be included in a “potential participant pool” that doesn’t guarantee you’ll always get access to them. Given that they are not finalized, you’re doing this at your own risk, but it does give you the chance to help Sony make the software better before a full launch.
The PS5’s software kind of felt like it was in beta at launch, with crashing problems–often associated with rest mode–and a few features are still not included. The empty NVMe SSD slot inside the system, for instance, is still not usable, though Sony does now allow you to store PS5 games on an external drive in order to hold them until you’re ready to transfer them to the internal storage. All of this, of course, is only relevant if you have been able to find a PS5, and with PS5 restocks so sporadic, that hasn’t been easy.
