PlayStation Firmware 4.0 Beta Available

With less than a few hours to go, Sony is set to release v4.0 firmware as a beta preview for PlayStation 4 owners, which includes a significant UI refresh. Pop-up notifications, new system icons and backgrounds, and a handful of other tweaks comes along with the new dashboard. The Quick Menu system has also been overhauled. It also won’t cover the whole screen any more, which was never very convenient. Hitting the Share button is less of a time-suck and has support for clips 140 seconds versus the previous 10 seconds. V4.0 is significant upgrade that emphasizes more on Trophies and achievements.

The featured update that should have been out for a while now is the ability to create folders on the content launcher and in your library, and also, there’s a new tab called Purchased Content, aimed at decluttering your library.

Of course, to get these features from the beta rollout date tomorrow, you need to be registered for the public program and selected as a tester.
