In Episode 8, "Season Finale," the final three contestants (Amped, Cyrus, and Nauseous) face an intense series of mini-challenges involving problem solving, dexterity, PlayStation knowledge and game play. There are no judges, no elimination rounds, and no excuses in this flat-out race to the finish to determine who wins the title of The Tester.





The Tester is available in both Standard and High-Definition formats from the PlayStation Store and also showing in PlayStation Home, Theater 8 where another cast member t-shirt will be rewarded. And don't miss the new commemorative item that is also available for purchase!

211w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has made available a preview video of The Tester - Episode 7 which also hits PS3 on PSN today.

To quote: This week on The Tester, we find out who has what it takes to make it to the "final three." It is not going to be easy.

In Episode 7, "Killer Recall," Amped, Cyrus, Nauseous, and Star must memorize self-defense combinations and use them against a gauntlet of attackers in a live game scenario.

The grueling mental and physical challenge puts contestants' individual memorization abilities to the test – a key skill needed to recreate game bugs or follow critical procedures in the QA environment. You don't want to miss this episode!

On hand to evaluate who's got all the right moves is God of War III's Director of Product Development, John Hight. A industry veteran with dozens of titles to his credit and a Cinematic Arts Professor at USC to boot John's got an excellent eye for talent.

212w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a video preview of The Tester - Episode 6, which hits PS3 via PSN today.

To quote: Gaming really becomes reality this week. Throughout the series, the gamers have been tested on the skills necessary to become an effective tester.

This week, the ability to maintain concentration in a busy environment (and, man, does it get busy in First Party QA!) is put before the gamers by way of paintball.

In The Tester - Episode 6 "Focus, People, Focus," the remaining five (Amped, Cyrus, Doc, Nauseous, and Star), are evaluated on their individual ability to keep it together under fire. And, to scrutinize if their aim is true, SCEA Managing Producer Kyle Shubel joins the panel to witness who's in the 'Killzone.'





As we get closer to the season finale on April 8, every moment (and shot) counts for the remaining contenders.

The Tester is available in both Standard and High Definition formats from PlayStation Store and also showing in PlayStation Home - Theater 8, where another free cast T-shirt will be rewarded.

213w ago - Empty Clip Studios' Managing Partner Matt Shores has shared a trailer video and announced that beginning today Groovin' Blocks is available on PlayStation Network.

To quote: This is Matt from Empty Clip Studios. We're a small game developer that aims to put out games that you'll want to play over and over.

We're stoked to spread the word about our first PlayStation Network title, Groovin' Blocks. Groovin' Blocks is a genre-bending music-based puzzle game.

Many times people give it a quick look and say "Wait, isn't this just a match-3 game?" HELL no! If you love graphics-based block puzzles and games set to rocking beats, then Groovin' Blocks is your gaming dream come true.

In Groovin' Blocks, you play directly with the beat of the music. See those bright moving columns on the side? You will notice that as the song plays, they come towards the board where all of your blocks are falling.

Once they hit the side, they will "flash" and disappear. That flashing is where you want to hit down on the SIXAXIS controller and settle your blocks. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Well, now you add on that match-3 component and you have yourself something...

213w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has revealed a preview of the latest episode 5 of The Tester today, and confirmed that it will be available in its entirety on PSN.

To quote: This week's episode is called "Buzz In or Buzz Off." The remaining 6 (only 6!) gamers take on a BUZZ!-themed quiz challenge testing their mastery of all things PlayStation.

It really heats up when SCEA's Director of First Party Quality Assurance, Jeff Wilkerson, joins the panel this week to evaluate who might have what it takes to work on one of his QA teams.

There's no place to hide in this episode and somebody is bound to crack under the pressure. This knowledge challenge is anything but trivial. Who's got the answers? Who has no clue?

Find out in Episode 5 and witness every twitch, lip quiver, high-five and blank stare to see who goes on and who goes home.
