To quote: Want a chance to work for PlayStation? Do you have the skills and determination to work as a game tester?
This series of programs will follow a group of select gamers as they face-off in a series of elimination challenges designed to test their mental toughness, endurance, and video game knowledge as they compete for a job working as a PlayStation game tester.
The winner of the new show gets a job working for PlayStation's Quality Assurance department in San Diego, CA and gets the opportunity to work on some of the best PlayStation games.
Open casting for the series begins today.

Game testing does look like a tedious tiresome job where you have to play games you don't even like & try to find bugs which for me would take the fun out of it but fior someone who want's a job in the area of gaming & PS3 this is an incredible opportunity to get your foot in the door & could eventually lead to becoming a game designer or any number of positions.
I am looking forward to watching this video series I think it's a great idea & will make an entertaining series similar to the WCG Ultimate gamer competition that ran on Spike a while ago. Plus it's a start to more possibilities of PlayStation free reality show series. Maybe someday they'll have a free series on the PSN that's as cool as True Blood that would be awesome.
