Meet The Tester Cast Members Luge and Doc in PlayStation Home Tomorrow

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on Mar 16, 2010 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

Hey fans of The Tester. We have a special treat for you this week. Two of your favorite cast members from The Tester, Luge and Doc, will be dropping by The Tester theater in PlayStation Home tomorrow, Wednesday, from 6PM PDT/9 PM EDT – 7PM PDT/10PM EDT to take your questions. Here’s your chance to get the answers to the questions you’ve been dying to ask: What’s it really like on The Tester set? What’s it like in the hamster ball? How are beerios?

If you’ve been following the series, you know that this past week’s Episode 4 was no easy LARP in the park for both Luge and Doc. And, we all want to know what’s next for Luge and what’s Doc’s strategy to win as we get down to our final six challengers.

More cast guest appearances are slated in the weeks ahead. So let us know the other contestants you would like to hear from. And, remember, Episode 5 hits PlayStation Network on Thursday!

Luge and Doc from The Tester

    You only have to be 13 years or older to enter PlayStation Home.

    Theater 8 where ‘The Tester’ plays is not age-gated for mature content. Hope to see you there!

@Kevin Furuichi or Jeff Rubenstein

When I log into Playstation.com and check my trophies, Star Ocean and FFXIII don’t show up in the “My trophies” section. The trophies are counted in the totals, but I can’t view or compare those two games. Would you please have someone look into it?

I dont get it, this was filmed late 2009 so how are we supposed to ask someone questions about soemthing that already finished? and they have to act like they still in it?

    This is a ‘virtual’ appearance similar to the way contestants show up during a season’s run to talk about their experiences on the show…except this will be done via text and avatars.

    + Kevin Furuichi on March 16th, 2010 at 12:29 pm said:

    You should see a subscription icon appear in the the Qore category page (under the Media section) the month AFTER your subscription expires. If you subscribed last March, you won’t see a subscription icon until April.

    Does that help?

Eh, I think “The Tester” is a dud. What really makes a reality show great is the fact that there is always someone that is so crazy, stupid or evil that it makes it entertaining. There’s just no personality…

I’m pretty sure Doc has aspergers, or at a minimum has never learned social skills. He’s so creepy.

I think people get eliminated too quickly & the challenge have nothing to do with gaming. I wanna see STAR play Guitar Hero to see if shes better than me.

+ canadianstryker on March 16th, 2010 at 12:33 pm said:

I think Doc should’ve gone, and Luge should’ve stayed. Sorry but Luge is more serious, Doc jokes around ALL the time. He’s more annoying than funny, he also hasn’t done any of the physical work yet. He flung the footballs and used the megaphone. Get him running and lets see him fall in a more glorious fashion than Big D.

I’ll be there to show support to the contestants, to The Tester and to Home.

To me, The Tester is a simple and fun program to watch. It’s only about thirty minutes long and only has one commercial (at the very beginning so that it doesn’t interfere with the program).

I do hope that The Tester will have second and third seasons and beyond. There are many people who do not have the money or means to ask for a job with SCEA. The Tester gives them the opportunity to compete for a highly sought job from amongst thousands of gamers.

And not only that, contestants will be forever immortalized with their name and face on a tee shirt in PlayStation Home. Now that;s worth the effort of being on The tester!

I have a small request. Can you guys get series “LIFE” from Discovery on the video store or Playstation HOME after each episode air on TV? I would love to have each episode on my PS3 after the air

But being a tester is not only of gaming well, is about having a good critical eye which can catch the most of the details, and if u gonna work for any company… believe me, they want people with leadership, comunication hability and somebody which can make the best team work…

If you play well… just that, you just play well but doesn’t make you the right guy for the job…

He’s actually a paramedic and fireman, but is so passionate about the industry that he put it on the line for this unknown show. Some folks are turned off by his larger-than-life personality, but the man’s got a heart of gold.

Thank you. I’m sure I will. I even managed to get my Wife to watch the show. Though she ocassionally plays, she’s not as interested in gaming as I am.

+ icereaver on March 16th, 2010 at 1:10 pm said:

Eh no…

I’m sorry but I wanted to like the show, but it’s pretty bad, lets be honest here. I keep watching it for the reason I’d watch a B movie. Not because it has a great story, cast or any compelling reason to see it through, but because its so hilarious bad you can’t look away. Is that the hook?

This is the only show I’ve ever seen that features gamers, features people that make games, but has completely nothing to do with playing games. Um miss fire?

Kevin – (from #16)

That’s cool. Being a paramedic & a fire fighter are very good things. There’s no argument as to how big his heart is, or the integrity he puts into his work.

But if I was having a heart attack, or my place was on fire, i wouldn’t want someone who eats Beerios for breakfast. I’m pretty sure the bigwigs at Sony wouldn’t want something like that either. I’m just saying, it was a [DELETED] move that begged the audience for his attention.

I haven’t been following the Tester but I think this is a good use for Home. The way I look at Home is that it is a way to get people to interact. I figure there should be more of this. I would be more interested to hear from or be able to chat with developers though. Or maybe the people from the GT Academy.

ANSWER PLEASE

I don’t know about this show. I’ve seen all of the episodes so far (until episode 4) and I’m unsure about it because of the boring challenges. I mean I expected awesome tournaments between the contestants, I expected awesome gameplay and LAN PS3 battles between teams… I got 2 fat retards running around in hamster balls and playing dress-up to impress some grown men. I don’t know, but where are the actual PS3 controller-handling battles… is (was) there even going to be any of that!? (I mean I know the seasons over already) so just tell me now, were there any game-playing challenges… like videogame playing.

People are so whiny. The show is free. Dont watch it if you dont like it. Home is free. Dont use it if you dont like it.

I like the Tester ok. Seems kinda cheap, but it has a charm. Should be more involved with game competition though.

Anyway, people need to lay off Doc. Seems like a good dude to me.

Hey Guys, Doc here.
Ty you all so much for supporting The Tester. A lot of work went into putting this out for you to watch. I look forward to awnsering all your questions. I loving gaming for many reasons, that’s why I was happy that Sony picked me to be a part of this. Gaming is a passion and being on this show was like going to gamer summer camp. I hope you enjoy the rest of this season with only 4 more episodes to go.
