If you want to be a participant in the third season of "The Tester," pay attention.

Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC (SCEA), partnered with 51 Minds Entertainment, has announced the open casting call for Season 3 of the PlayStation Network original competitive reality series, "The Tester." This season, contestants will be going for a production job on an unannounced title for the PlayStation 3. It's with God of War studio Sony Santa Monica.

Season 3 is open for submissions today and encourages gamers from all over the country to "upload photos, videos and short written statements explaining why they deserve a spot on the exclusive reality series." The deadline is September 16 so don't procrastinate. In addition, SCEA will hold a casting contest that lets family, friends and fans vote on cast submissions, which will result in one lucky gamer (the favorite, obviously) joining the cast for Season 3.

If you missed Season 2, it premiered on November 2, 2010. Panelists Brent Gocke (SCEA senior release manager), and Adrienne Curry (gamer and reality TV celebrity), along with other guest panelists, decided that Matthew Brown (aka "Gaymer") should win the contest. He beat out the other 11 contestants and earned himself a position as a game tester in the QA department in SCEA San Diego's studio. He also got a $5,000 signing bonus, a 46" 3D Bravia TV, and a limited edition "The Tester" PlayStation 3.

Visit the show's official site for more info and details. So, will you be the winner in Episode 3…? Or are you just gonna watch?

After this, I'm really surprised if anyone rocks up for the Season 3 casting call. 😛

lol, THIS is why I think this is not the best job for a gamer. Once you came home you'd never want to play games in your off time.

I'd try this but it seems like a waste of time, I'd just get lost in the piles of applicants. But I'd do it for a bit of fame and attention since I think playtesting a game is actually a horrible job for a gamer to have.

Id like to "try out" but I'm pretty sure they would want someone with some sort of production know how. Besides, the position for last season sounds like something more my style. Ultimately that's what I want to do. A game tester or a game designer/developer.

Gotta get a better paying job to put myself through school though. Unless I find some wicked awesome financial aid or student loan that I don't have to pay a butt load of money back, or into. Gotta start the search though.

At my age I have to stick with just watching the episodes of The Tester.

My luck would be like the link that Dancemachine55 posted, if I were to obtain employment in that field.

If I was testing a new God Of War game then yes I would love to win this season of The Tester.

Anyways, the past two seasons have ended with my favorite winning in the end, so I'll be happy sitting back and watching this season come November.

It's going to be awesome I loved watching both seasons. Can't wait to see how this one unveils!!!!

BTW they are looking for people like Big Fazeek even he was a big************************* people like to see drama that's what reality shows are all about so I expect to see more of it.

Even though he was the least favourtie charecter.
