95w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared some videos today announcing that The Tester: Season 3 casting is now open for voting by PSN fans.
To quote: Our search for the cast of The Tester: Season 3 continues! Today, community voting begins so anybody can now help select the one lucky gamer who will get a chance to compete for the production job at Sony's Santa Monica Studio.
By now, I hope you've visited our site, created a profile and uploaded a video to convince the world why you should be selected to compete on the third season of The Tester.
If not, don't worry. It's not too late because we're still accepting online auditions until September 16. Remember, the casting directors look at every profile and video. So, even though voting has begun, don't miss you opportunity to get on the show. Sign up now and create your own profile!
Last year, a majority of the final cast for The Tester: Season 2 came from user submissions on the official site. For some "suggestions" on what makes a good audition video, check out Season 2 contestant Mo Chocolate's advice in the video below.
We also thought it would be fun to take a look back at the first audition video submitted by Mickey Paradis who you probably know as '8-bit Mickey', winner of last year's online voting contest :
We're really excited for this season of The Tester, and you guys in the community are really responding. So invite your friends and family to login and cast their votes for you, their favorite contender! The first round of votes ends on September 16 when we cut the field to only the Top 100, so don't wait to spread the word.
