And so it begins. Sony Japan has announced that it's looking for users to beta test the PlayStation 4's next firmware update. The official Japanese blog doesn't mention any version numbers, but this must be 5.0 since the company makes frequent mention of new software features.

We assume Sony will soon come out and confirm a beta for North America and Europe, so keep your eyes peeled. In the meantime, tell us what you want from 5.0 in the comments section below.

Update: Sony has announced a beta for us here in the West. You can learn how to sign up through here.
