The previous two seasons of PlayStation Network’s original reality show The Tester offered the winner the chance to work among Sony’s brightest minds as a game tester at Sony Computer Entertainment America. As you’ve probably heard, for season 3, the ultimate prize is truly the chance of a lifetime: the winner of The Tester 3 will become a production associate at Sony’s world-famous Santa Monica Studio.
We thought you might like to take a peek behind the scenes of this state-of-the-art studio to meet some of the talented folks involved in the biggest titles on the platform: Shannon Studstill (senior director), Stig Asmussen (director of God of War III), Todd Papy (design director), Whitney Wade (senior producer), and Deborah Mars (executive producer). You might remember Deborah and Stig appeared as guest panelists in season 2 of The Tester. Check out this exclusive inside look at Santa Monica Studio.
As you can see, Santa Monica Studio is filled with some of the best talent in the games industry, and the very people who make PlayStation’s top games will be teaching and guiding the winner of The Tester 3 in their new role as a production associate on their next big AAA title.
As an added bonus this week, we have a behind the scenes look inside the PlayStation Loft where the cast will be living this season. It’s filled with tons of great games and gadgets, so we know this season’s contestants will feel right at home. Take a look at the redesigned PlayStation Loft in the “extras” section of our main site.
With only 2 weeks until the season premiere on Tuesday, February 7th, we hope you’re as exited for The Tester 3 as we are. Be sure to check out our main site to meet all the contestants, panelists, and guests you’ll be seeing this season, and check back here next Tuesday for a sneak peek at the first episode of The Tester 3.
