158w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared some video footage today previewing The Tester 2 Episode 5, which is now available on PSN.
To quote: Last week's grueling teamwork challenge pushed the cast to their limits and this week, Episode 5 ramps up the pressure with an intense creativity challenge.

158w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared details on FirstPlay Episode 35 today, which arrives on PSN this Wednesday!
To quote: It's somehow almost Christmas, even though it feels like about a week since I didn't really get anything I wanted last year ("A whisk! Thanks, darling") and I haven't yet filled my amazon wishlist with expensive boxsets I'll never have time to watch.
But it does mean that FirstPlay is experiencing its first ever December, with episode 35 hitting the store on Wednesday the 1st.
The big news this week is that, to celebrate the release of the actually rather good Def Jam Rapstar, we sent Official PlayStation Magazine's foolishly game news editor Rachel Weber to become a real rapper under the tutelage of hip hop up-and-comer XO man. See how she got on in our exclusive feature.
We also do our square-jawed damnedest to catch up on all the games of 2010 we've not reviewed so far, including Rock Band 3, DJ Hero 2, PDC World Championship Darts (whoo!) and a big slice of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.
We also take a look at blockbusting marvel Inception on Blu-ray, show you how we got on with our first hour on Killzone 3's multiplayer, countdown our favourite local co-op games (that's splitscreen and screensharing, rather...
159w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a few preview videos of The Tester 2 Episode 4, which is available today on PSN.

This week, it's time to see what they're truly made of in the most physically demanding teamwork challenge of the season, inspired by Medal of Honor. We'll see who can really dig into the trenches and continue to prove that they have what it takes to be the next PlayStation QA Tester.
Along with the Medal of Honor themed challenge comes the Tier 1 beard! Greg Goodrich, EA's executive producer for Medal of Honor, joins both Adrianne Curry and Brent Gocke to determine who's moving up the ranks and who's turning in their badge.
Episode 4 of "The Tester 2" debuts today only on the PlayStation Network. Look to download from the PlayStation Store later today after the update and check it out in PlayStation Home starting Wednesday to receive a new 'Game Over' T-shirt.
