Yesterday we learned that the PlayStation 4 will receive a new firmware update, numbered 3.5, and that it will be getting a beta soon. Rumour is, we now have a precise date on when that update beta will start: the 3rd of March.
This rumour comes from industry insider Tidux, who recently posted a tweet saying:
FW 3,5 will go live for beta testers after a maintenance on 3 of March. #PS4

Tidux is then badgered by Twitter users demanding to know what’s in the update, but he maintains a steely silence. According to DualShockers, Tidux is a very reliable source and has been reliable regarding past leaks that involve system software updates, so while there’s a chance this information is not entirely accurate, there is a bigger chance that it is.
As we’ve previously reported, you can sign up to be a beta tester already if you head on over to the registration page. The number of beta testers Sony will accept is limited, so signing up won’t guarantee you a spot on the list. And while you’re at it, make sure you’re signed up for the PlayStation Forums as well, as that’s where the Beta’s forum will go up live. Sony will be watching your discussions on the update beta, so make sure you wear something nice.
