Who doesn’t want to get payed to play video games? Sony will launch somewhat of a reality show that airs on PSN called ‘The Tester’ (it looks like the ‘What’s New’ section may actually have a use) If you are serious about doing this for a living then go complete an official online casting submission and who knows, with an ounce of luck you could be the next worker at PlayStation’s Quality Assurance department in San Diego, CA after competing with other fellow gamers in this upcoming reality series.
