PostSubject: A Dream Job: PS3 Games Tester   Fri May 08, 2009 12:12 pm

How fantastic would it be to be testing games for the ps3?
Your favourite past time playing the latest games from sony is your job! Could this be the ideal job you have always wanted?

This all sounds like a fantastic oporttunity to play games and get paid for it, but come on lets be realistic here! If life was so easy to slap in your latest ps3 game and play it all day (easily done) then why would other people have to work hard at their boring job?

Are you thinking how sony and other game developers select people to test games? me to!

So what would it take to make you the best games tester?
Why would you be selected out of a massive list of applications for testing out pre-released games?
What kind of experience should a game tester have?

Look forward to hearing all your views on this Cool

I worked as a game tester once for over a year. It starts out really fun since you're sitting there thinking "I'm one of the first people to play this" or "omg omg omg omg" and even "this is the coolest job ever" however at some times it can be extremely tedious :P

For example: I arrived at 9am on a friday ready to test the latest build of the game, whacked it in the MASSIVE ps2 tool kit (just imagine an extra large ps2), happily testing away when *BAM* blue screen, so I report it to the programers. While later it comes back, same thing happens, so I report it again. This went on for the entire day! All I wanted to do was get off this damn roof and try the rest of the level!

Other then that example it's great fun, plus if a game gets cancelled you get to boast you played it Wink like DeadLight....man.....that had potential! :(

Well basically my uncles girlfriend was working there, they needed someone to test (since they didnt have any testers at the time) so she mentioned I was an avid gamer and the rest is history :P

Now if you want to get a job in testing a good website to check out is aswift this has a whole list of jobs within the gaming industry. Lately though I've found testing jobs hard to come by :(

Who were you testing for? I always wanted one of those PS2s, they sounded way cool. I had a mate that tested for manhunt 2. He gaveup playing games after it, lol
