The Tester 3 Episode 8: Cast-offs Return with New Extra Scenes

The Tester 3

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar Posted by on Mar 27, 2012 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

We’ve got a very special episode this week as your favorite cast members are back to relive their favorite moments from this season and reveal some great extra scenes that didn’t make it into previous episodes.

Don’t miss first-hand accounts from Egoraptor, J-Tight, Skyd1ddy, Suzkaiden, Kwajamonster and Ninjanomyx, as they remember some of the funniest and most outrageous moments of their time in the PlayStation Loft. There are also lots of great new outtakes when things don’t quite go as planned. Plus, they’ll divulge their insight about the three finalists with a special preview of next week’s final challenge. The entire Episode 8 is ready right here (and later in the usual channels), so check it out!

Remember, you can watch the entire episode in the What’s New section of the XMB, PlayStation Home’s Theater 2 (where the limited edition ‘The Tester 3” game over virtual hoodies are awarded), or download in glorious HD from the PlayStation Store after today’s update.

Last week’s Episode 7 featured PlayStation knowledge and a dunk tank. Special guest, IGN executive editor for PlayStation, Greg Miller joined the panel last week to help decide the three finalists for next week. If you missed a very entertaining Episode 7, watch it right here. We also have some pretty funny extra scenes from last week also ready to roll. Click the image below for more fun and games from episode 7!

The eighth Twitter giveaway for The Tester 3 is next Monday, April 2nd. Follow @PlayStation to participate, and keep an eye out for a trivia question related to Episode 8. Congratulations to @juggernaut1983 for winning yesterday’s Episode 7 prize package!

For next week, the prize package provides one lucky winner with the most coveted prize of the season: A brand new, PlayStation Vita! As always, the winner will receive their very own “The Tester 3” t-shirt, and one-month PS Plus voucher. Not bad, eh?

Let us know what you think of this latest episode, and who is your favorite. And we look forward to bringing you the season finale next week!

Thanks for supporting The Tester 3!

This episode was SO entertaining!
I’ll admit, I was pretty disappointed that the Finale was today, but after watching this episode I no longer feel this way. It only made my anticipation for next week fly through the roof!!!
I really hope AchilleezMight wins though. He has shown that he is a stable, level headed, leader and team player that is truly deserving to win the position at Santa Monica Studios. I love ChrystiePryde and all but Achilleez should win. Fingers crossed. Anyway, I love the Tester now and its only gotten better. Can’t wait til next week :D

So the last game is STARHAWK!!

Everyone in the finale really deserves to win.

Suzkaiden was my least favorite from any season, trying to cry her way into staying was pathetic. I’m sure the Army dude won after he didn’t get dunked in the water again (that was such a huge mistake). I really wanted Kristy to win. She totally won me over. I’m totally in love too I’ll admit. Haha.

This season was exciting and cant wait to see who the winner is! This show has been more exciting than the psn store updates lately, lol.

I just Love The Tester… All of the 3 seasons were great! I do wish there’s a fourth on in the plans :)

As for the finale I’m rooting for RealityPalez, the guy does know his stuff… He’s a bit cocky sometimes, but that can be worked on…

I’ll also be OK if Achillez wins, as he’s shown great sense of leadership and knows how to motivate the group.

Congratulations SONY for such and entertaining show. You’ve really proved that gaming goes beyond games themselves.

A huge thank you from a Brazilian Gamer!

i love that ModNation Racers poster there. Lets hope Sony doesn’t abandon MNR!!!!!!!!!

What, no haters!? Amazing.

Great show, Kevin, I’ll download in HD later. I am only rooting for Akeeleze (sp?). He’s the only one I would like to work with, & hang with. Really good dude.

I’ve enjoyed this season, but I’ve noticed that seasons 2 and 3 rely more and more on drama than the 1st season, and the reason I got into the Tester in the first place besides it being a video game reality show, was that it was a reality show that didn’t have the usual contrived drama that reality shows on television do. If there is a 4th Tester my only request is that the drama is dialed back much more, just like the 1st season.


+ amshockeyfan on March 28th, 2012 at 2:53 am said:

That would be so cool if we had a female gamer be the winner to show some of the male chauvinistic pigs that gals can game just as well as the guys.

I am rooting for Akilleezmight & Krysti as winners as they are both more mature than Reality is.


+ ASSHAT222 on March 28th, 2012 at 7:46 am said:

It would be a cool idea to have all the runner’s up and previous winners, all on one show. maybe a midseason episodes where cyrus, amped, nausious, gaymer, cheska, scooter, akillez, reality, and kristy compete for a different prize. The show could be called Tester all stars. It could be a great crossover.

whats the point in calling it ‘episode 8’? nothing happens.
