Reality TV Invades Our Consoles

Sony have announced that their new gaming-related reality series, "The Tester," is coming to the PlayStation Network very soon. The first episode will be available on the PSN Store on February 18th.

The show boasts several celebrity judges, including EatSleepPlay's David Jaffe, and God of War's John Hight.

The Tester is an original competitive reality series that PlayStation fans can really get into. Produced in partnership with one of the biggest names in reality TV (51 Minds), this is a program for gamers, about gamers who are competing to win a job as a game tester on PlayStation’s first party development team – the team that has introduced history-making franchises such as God of War, UNCHARTED, LittleBigPlanet and Gran Turismo.

PS3 and PSP owners can download The Tester from PlayStation Store starting February 18th for FREE. PlayStation Home users will also be able to watch the series with other PS3 owners in the PlayStation Home Theatre

But do we really care?


  1. ...and I thought the job of games tester, nice as it sounds, was actually pretty crappy.

    I may watch about 2 minutes of this though, just for research purposes you understand! :)

  2. They should get a hot female presenter to host it - then maybe I'll watch it! :P
    Have you seen the foxy chick who presents Pulse? (US Store).
