Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on Dec 21, 2010 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

Please keep your comments spoiler free. We’d like everybody to have a chance to enjoy this intense finale.

Seven weeks ago “The Tester 2” premiered on the PlayStation Network and 12 hardcore gamers embarked on a series of rigorous competitions, all for the chance to win a job working for PlayStation. Now, we’re down to three finalists: Ches-ka, Gaymer, and Scooter battle head-to-head in a Killzone 3 inspired finale which again concludes with amazing gameplay competition. The first to complete the jetpack-enabled ‘Frozen Shores” level in the upcoming Killzone 3 wins the grand prize – a job at PlayStation’s San Diego Studios, a $5,000 signing bonus, a limited edition ‘The Tester” PlayStation 3 system signed by all the panelists, and a brand new Sony 46” BRAVIA 3D HDTV.

Ches-ka. Gaymer. Scooter. Who will win it all? Do not miss this exciting Season Finale.

The Season Finale is a FREE download available now in the ‘Video’ section of PlayStation Store, and you can catch up on the season with Episodes 1 through 7 also still available. And, don’t forget to also jump into PlayStation Home’s “The Tester” Theater to watch with your friends and snag another ‘Game Over’ cast shirt.

We’re also releasing a compilation of the Extra Scenes on PlayStation Store for those of you who missed some of the additional behind-the-scenes fun from this season.

The Tester 2 - Episode 8 Prizes

This Week’s Download & Win Grand Prize

The finale prize is the one that everyone has been waiting for. Downloading the season finale of “The Tester 2” will automatically enter you in the drawing for a gorgeous Sony 46” BRAVIA 3D HDTV and a ‘The Tester’ Limited Edition PS3 system signed by all the panelists from Season 2. See the official rules here.

And, congratulations to David D. from Pueblo, CO our Week 6 winner of the Gran Turismo 5 Collector’s Edition along with ‘The Tester’ Limited Edition PS3 system.

After they backstabbed Mo, I sort of lost interest in the show.

When are the Killzone 3, LBP 2, Mass Effect 2 demos coming out?

+ Permafry_42 on December 21st, 2010 at 1:25 pm said:

so the episode isn’t going to be out for another few hours in contradiction to what has been announced here, the contest is closed off from Canadians, and most of the show has been more about the drama of it than about gaming or game testing… wow sony…

+ SpyDudeFX on December 21st, 2010 at 1:27 pm said:

LBP2 is later today, KZ3 is probably closer to the release date in Feb 2011. Mass Effect 2, is there a release date?

Why doesn’t anyone ever read the post? For the past 7 weeks it’s been available on the VIDEO side of the store first. No one has caught onto that yet? Seriously?

im falling out of love with sony fast, its been an expensive ordeal and when u in a rewards beta that supposed to reward loyal fans and NOOBS w/ 20 posts win a trip, if i posted all the betas and early access and home closed beta youd think im the man but i dont post because no need to brag but when a noob wins something you and some other die-hards u kno dont win the CES Trip then u kno its actually random not “loyality” and realize for that just dont bust your ssa and support something you believed in and still feel empty, try something else!

Season Finale is here and it’s the Season 2 is the best season yet! Of course, that’s a compliment and a great accomplishment. Season 1 was fun and Season Two has been just as fun and has provided more memorable contestants.

Season 2: Episode 8 downloading as I type and my bro and I will be looking forward to seeing who wins it all. I’m rooting for Gaymer because he’s a cool cat and the best all around contestant.

Rock on Sony/Playstation!

I love how the three of them were calling Mo immature and whatnot, when they were the ones acting like little children, plotting behind his back to gang up on and get rid of him.

YEA gamer won like i predicted !!! Im so glad scooter didn’t win , he was too trifling with the Mo incident , and when the show started it look like scooter was looking for love instead of the tester job.

The pathetic backstabbing of Mo would make me want none of the remaining three on my tester team. Seriously who does that? Everyone that is remaining should have an equal opportunity to compete, not have 3 gain up on one to destroy them.

Whats funny is they made fun of him for not being serious enough, yet he was the only one prepared for his last challenge when the rest were drinking alcohol and going “poor me, poor me, I hate sing star”…

+ NURADEEN on December 21st, 2010 at 3:35 pm said:

I thought it was a racist thing when Mo got ‘immaturely’ ganged up on. Mo had only 1 goal be a tester , scooter thought he was looking for love on VH1.
