Sony has begun to send out PS4 Firmware Update 6.50 invites to selective users in order to help them test out the newest version of the Playstation 4 firmware. While the update doesn’t have any major new features, the beta will be used to fine-tune the beta and make stability improvements.
The Playstation 4 firmware updates are normally used to make improvements to the console’s firmware in general, helping to improve stability and other particularly earth-shaking updates. While that won’t be happening with the PS4 Firmware Update 6.50, the new update will still be making a number of minor adjustments for performance and stability.
There’s no public release so far and no real information from Sony on when the update will actually be coming out, or what it will have, but the beta is still live now. If you’re wondering if you’ve been selected to help test out the beta, you can check your email and make sure.
If you have been selected, you’ll see a message that will tell you that you’ve been selected, along with how to access the beta and a link to the private beta forum where you can give Playstation your feedback on the beta patch, and another link where you can report bugs or performance issues.
While the PS4 Firmware Update 6.50 doesn’t yet have an official release date, we’ll probably be getting it over the next few weeks, since a beta means that it’s about ready to come out barring a few changes to help it be more stable.
Either way, considering that the supposed Playstation Meeting for this year turned out to be a fake, it’s nice to have at least something new on the PS4 even if it’s just a new update. Hopefully along with the new firmware update, Sony will have something of substance to give us sometime soon.
