162w ago - PlayStation Network Senior Director Susan Panico has shared a preview today of The Tester 2's season premiere, which arrives today on PSN for fans.
To quote: We introduced the new cast, including our first-ever nationwide online casting contest winner. The panelists are set. Will Powers is fired up.
And the sneak peeks and 'Download & Win' sweepstakes have been revealed. So what else is left? Yup, you guessed it - it's time to watch "The Tester!"
Later today, Episode 1 of PlayStation Network's original competitive reality series, "The Tester 2" will premiere on PlayStation Store and in PlayStation Home.
The first season brought in more than 2.5 million downloads and produced a ton of excitement from the show's fans and we think that excitement will continue into season 2.
We went bigger and bolder for the production of "The Tester 2" with more "behind-the-scenes" with the cast, tougher challenges featuring games such as Medal of Honor and Gran Turismo 5, longer episodes, and even more surprises down the road!
Adrianne Curry and Brent Gocke will sit alongside guest panelists, like Stig Asmussen and Ted Price, to decide the fate of these 12 hardcore gamers competing to win a job as an official PlayStation game tester for SCEA's Quality Assurance department in San Diego, Calif.
Be sure to check back this afternoon for the first episode of Season 2 (available for free download in both high-definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) formats) on the PlayStation Store or visit PlayStation Home to watch with your friends later this evening in Theater 6.
And don't forget to download each episode during the season for a weekly chance to win great prizes from our 'Download & Win' sweepstakes. The sweepstakes kicks off today with a God of War III: Ultimate Edition and 'The Tester' limited edition PS3 system both autographed by guest panelist Stig Asmussen. See the official rules here.
You can also follow "The Tester" on Facebook with the show's 'tab' on the PlayStation Facebook page. The Tester tab will allow fans to "Like" their favorite cast members and watch previews of each week's new episode during the season.
We hope you enjoy season 2 and we look forward to your comments throughout the series run.
