PS4 Firmware Beta Sign Ups Open, PS Now Updated

I'm Batman and so is my wife

A quick round up of news from Sony HQ starting with announcement that you can sign up to beta test the next PlayStation 4 firmware release. The test will start in early March and you will get to try out new features before anyone else, plus get an exclusive sneak-peak at the words “improves stability of some features.”

To sign up for the beta follow this link.

We also have news of an update to the PlayStation Now service and if you love Batman and LEGO then boy have we got a treat for you. If you don’t like Batman and LEGO then you should reconsider you life and make better choices.

New to PlayStation Now this month are:

Finally, if you are one of those American types across the pond you will be pleased to know that this weekend you can play PS4 multiplayer games on the PSN for free! A whole weekend of free shooting people in the head! Lovely.

Oh and whilst we’re talking about Sony, the Gamestop CEO has retracted his statement saying that PlayStation VR will be out in the Autumn, rather than Q2, which is why we haven’t reported it.

    The last beta update didn’t cause any problems so will give this one a go too.

      Yeah, was kinda thinking the same tbh – I recall one happened a bit back, but I thought that was across the globe. Could well be wrong on that one though.

      Overall, it isn’t really any skin off my nose, but a bit of equality would be nice! :/

    Cool I tested the last Fw without major issues just a few crashes on certain games. I will be happy to do it again
