The Tester 3 Episode 3: Make Like Drake

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on Feb 21, 2012 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

Last week’s Twisted Metal inspired episode of The Tester 3 really pushed our gamers as the two teams scrambled to build a replica of Sweet Tooth’s ice cream truck under the intense scrutiny of David Jaffe. If you missed it, catch the full episode right here!

Week 3 tests their ability to overcome obstacles and stay focused in a challenge inspired by UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss for PS Vita. Golden Abyss’ creative director John Garvin visits from Sony Bend Studio to evaluate each team’s performance in the most demanding challenge of the season thus far. And this week, the winning team gets to spend some quality time with Nathan Drake himself, Nolan North. But the fun and games abruptly end during this week’s intense elimination.

Speaking of PS Vita, beginning with today’s PlayStation Store publish, The Tester 3 will be available to watch on PS Vita’s beautiful 5” OLED screen. You can catch up on the first two episodes on PS Vita as well.

Check out this week’s preview of episode 3 below, and watch the full episode here. You can download in HD and SD from the PlayStation Store when today’s update is published.

@142, all hot air no proof.

@141, other companies dont have these issues why does Sony? No one is not saying they are not working hard, but PSN updates are poor and intrusive. Sony’s infrastructure is behind the times from a network and service perspective.

Yeah, stop the whining!

The PS Store didn’t update for 5 WEEKS last spring!

This is nothing by comparison! Keep up the good work Sony!

I thought this PSStore update was supposed to come out on feb. 21st and it’s Feb 22 right here, 12:30am, no update whatsoever. I’ve been dying to download the facebook, twitter, netflix apps. I can only imagine people in the east coast getting a bit pissed off for buying the Vita at midnight and not getting everything they expected to get day one. (Also…this is my first comment here)

@ Jaimes_Bond:

If you only knew how silly your comment was, you’d be ashamed of yourself.

I moved out of the house when I was 18. I’m 32 now. I live in a condo and pay all my own bills and buy all my own toys. Silly boy…

Now what? What’s your next retort? Got anything left? Just keep waiting for YOUR SSX demo. Yeah, YOUR demo. It’s all YOURS, buddy. They made it just for YOU. See, your choice of words is what exposed you as a spolied brat with a grotesque sense of entitlement.

“Hey everyone,

Going to make sure this gets reviewed. I can’t speak to what the issues might be at this particular time (not in the office); I know it must be frustrating to not be able to get to the content you and I are all looking forward to. The frustrations here won’t go unnoticed, but while I can’t promise overnight results, I can promise to get this under the microscope. immediately.

Sony speaketh!

one thing we’re all forgetting, PlayStation runs in PACIFIC STANDARD TIME.

meaning, that the deadline for the store update is by midnight THEIR time, not ours. So long as it’s still Tuesday in CA, it still counts.

The deadline is… 12am Pacific time, 1am Mountain Time, 2am Central Time and 3am Eastern time.

10pm in Hawaii and 11pm in Alaska

so, save your gripes for after the clock passes midnight in THEIR location. More fair and valid that way.

Perhaps Sony should spend less effort on its crappy reality TV show and more effort on getting the store updates on an actual schedule.


168

+ dougatt on February 21st, 2012 at 8:44 pm said:

Alright. Rather than just complaining about the update being so late. I thought maybe I could make a suggestion that might help. Move the update team to the east coast. It would immediately cut three hours off whatever the problem is almost weekly.

gonna start making yo mama jokes from 10 to 10 minutes if this update doesn’t get online o.O

Almost 10 minutes until Midnight with no update… Really? I’d love to get some apps/AR games for the Vita I’ve already had for a week now, get my Saints Row: The Third DLC, and enjoy a couple demos. But no… It seems that for the last month or so now the store has been updating later and later… -_-

@168 I Am not accepting a word from you, why should I,don’t see anything to back it up, you’re just defending Sony. Sorry I need proof, what you said is very unlikely.

# 165 we suggested that already many of times . Its not do_able for them becuase sony head quater is onthe west coast . santa monica to be exact.. it faster for them to this(updates) ..( thats what they claim anyway).. Its a great ideas… i really hope it happen sooner than later.

Becuase they do have head qauter in ny.. I really dont see why its wouldnt work.. ..

+ Bad_Brains on February 21st, 2012 at 8:51 pm said:

Sony needs to set a REASONABLE time and stick to it every week. These late updates are ridiculous. Maybe try preparing these store updates in advance on Mondays and having them ready to go for Tuesdays so we are not stuck waiting all night long.

Theres my venting. Back to playing Vita and waiting for my Unit 13 demo -,-

yo mama is so fat, that if I had to pick five of the fattest people i know, She’d be three of them.

@mcbuttz78 then they should start on Monday lol. I understand that this is likely to be a huge update what with the vita games and all. But it’s not just this week man. It’s more like 2 or 3 weeks out of each month. It is the only complaint I have with psn at all actually. Either way Sony should understand the perception among many is that they update the store whenever the hell they feel like it. Right or wrong that’s the image they put out. And only they can change it.
