    US only?

      Apparently not, having read through the terms and conditions. It says they send you a download code if you're accepted, so I figure it's worth signing up and deciding if I want to accept it if/when it's offered to me.

      No, but they didn't bother to edit this US article to have a Aus relevant link.
      Here is the link for Aus PSN accounts - https://psnbeta.eu.playstation.com/SS3/enroll.php

    No thanks, I want my ps4 to work when Metal Gear is released..

      It would be good if they sent you a PS4 to test it on!

      Edit: Just read the T&Cs.

    Does that mean, long hours or dad of update?!!!

    Shivers*

    So this is a one time beta test rather than a preview program style setup? I can understand why they wouldn't want to commit to an on-going system but I've got to wonder why they'd bother with a one off beta test. What's actually in this update?

      There is already a PS beta community... not sure if they're just looking to expand the membership of that or if this is a separate program specifically for this update.

        Really? That makes it even stranger. I can't imagine there's any shortage of people willing to participate in their regular beta program.
