The Tester: PlayStation Network Reality Series Cast Revealed

50°
248w ago - Previously Sony held an open casting call, and today the cast to the PlayStation Network reality series dubbed "The Tester" is revealed.

To quote from PSN Sr. Director Susan Panico: In September, we announced an open casting call for The Tester and the response has been tremendous.

I want to thank everyone for your submissions! We heard from thousands of PlayStation fans from across the country, all eagerly vying for a spot on The Tester and a chance to compete to win a gamer's ultimate dream job - an official PlayStation game tester.

Today, I am pleased to be here on the PlayStation.Blog to introduce The Tester cast. In all, 11 contestants were selected for The Tester. The cast ranges in age from 22 - 36 years-old and stems from all walks of life - from a student, to a paramedic, to a used car salesman. While a seemingly diverse bunch, this group is united in the passion needed to be the next PlayStation game tester.

To produce The Tester, we teamed up with one of the biggest names in reality television, [Register or Login to view links], the dynamic production company that is the force behind hit series such as The Surreal Life, Rock of Love, and...
 

Video: MLB 09 The Show's PS3 World Series Prediction Revealed

50°
260w ago - Today Public Relations Manager Alex Armour has shared a PS3 video revealing the MLB 09 The Show's World Series prediction, specifically that the Phillies stun Yankees in 7 games.

To quote: With the World Series starting up tonight, we'd like to peer into the future a bit using the most authentic baseball simulation around, MLB 09 The Show.

Utilizing the Artificial Intelligence (AI) in MLB 09 The Show, we simulated the 2009 World Series and the results were very interesting - especially if you're from Pennsylvania. Here's a look at the video highlights...





The series was full of ups and downs as the both clubs clawed it out to the very last pitch. The Phillies took an early 3-1 lead behind the strong pitching of Cliff Lee, but the Yanks came right back with clutch hitting by A-Rod, Jeter and Teixeira to push the series to a decisive Game 7.

With the World Championship hanging in the balance, Chase Utley would become Philadelphia's savior hammering a three-run homerun in the top of the 8th inning to seal an improbable 8-2 victory against the favored New York Yankees.

Here are some of the final stats...

Final Scores:

• Game 1: Phillies, 12-3
• Game 2: Yankees, 5-4 (10...
 

Sega: Valkyria Chronicles Series Could Return to PlayStation 3

250°
265w ago - Valkyria Chronicles is one of the best exclusive games on the PlayStation 3. For that reason, many fans were upset to learn that Valkyria Chronicles II is only coming to the PSP.

Sega isn't completely shutting down the door to another Valkyria Chronicles game for the PlayStation 3 just yet, however.

Aaron Webber, the Assistant Community Manager for Sega of America, responded with the following [Register or Login to view links] on the European Playstation.Blog when a fan showed disdain for Valkyria Chronicles II being exclusive to the PSP, to quote:

"So far it seems like most of the fans are really just happy to see the series continue - and, if VCII sells well, it means a much greater chance that the series can pick up again back on a larger console, like the PS3."

So, oddly enough, a new Valkyria Chronicles game on the PlayStation 3 could depend on the sales of Valkyria Chronicles II for the PSP. The handheld sequel will be released in Europe and North America during the summer of 2010.

First Mass Effect 2 Trailer: Further Proof the Series is PS3-Bound?

50°
296w ago - About a month ago, we told you about the whispers we heard of the Mass Effect trilogy heading to Sony's console. Now it seems Bioware is implying the same thing.

In the first trailer for Mass Effect 2, Bioware gives us some interesting tidbits about the story: apparently, your character, Shepard, is assumed dead. It also seems many of the characters from the original game will appear in the sequel.

However, the most interesting thing about the trailer was the information it didn't give...

First of all, Bioware failed to mention a release date, which points to a 2010 release date; if Bioware was planning to release the game in the fall, they would have probably included the date in the trailer.





And secondly, the trailer fails to flash a console's logo. If Bioware was still in cahoots with Microsoft there would definitely be a big green "X" somewhere in the trailer.

Obviously, this is far from solid evidence. However, this coupled with the previous rumor (and other rumors that have subsequently popped up) makes it seem very likely that Mass Effect 2 will be playable on the PS3 whenever it releases.
