A new mandatory system software update is now available to download for PlayStation 4, taking the console up to version 4.73.

You’ve probably already guessed, but this latest update carries a single patch note: “The system software update improves the quality of the system performance.”

Sony is currently accepting registrations for its upcoming beta test for PlayStation 4’s 5.0 update. Successful applicants will get the chance to test the new features and improvements in the update before anyone else. To sign up, you’ll need a PlayStation 4 console, an internet connection, and access to the console’s master account. European PS4 owners can sign up here, while PS4 owners in North America can sign up here.

The beta is scheduled to begin in early August, so don’t wait too long to sign up.

The last major update for the console, update 4.50, was released in March and added support for external hard drives, introduced Boost Mode on PlayStation 4 Pro, made several improvements to PlayStation VR, and added support for voice chat when using Remote Play.
