Sony: All PlayStation 4 Beta Testing Opportunities Are Scams
This is an official PSA from Sony, although we're hoping most savvy and intelligent gamers didn't need it.
There have been several websites advertising ways to get into PlayStation 4 beta testing, which sounds a little fishy, yes? Well, of course it does. It's just a scam, as you might expect.
And Sony wanted to make that obvious fact abundantly clear with a recent Tweet:
"Just a reminder: Any sites asking you to enter details to sign up for PS4 beta testing are scams."
While the PS4 is indeed slated to launch this holiday season, there are certainly no public beta testing opportunities right now. We don't even have a date or price, although we expect to get both at Sony's E3 presentation in June. Microsoft has yet to announce their new Xbox console, but that has been rumored to take place in April at some point. It will very interesting if both impending systems launch at about the same time.
But for the time being, don't be taken in by obviously pathetic scam attempts. Wait for official updates.
