Today Sony PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has announced that they have officially opened The Tester virtual reality show's casting call for Season 3 on PSN.
To quote: We're very excited to announce that PlayStation Network's exclusive hit reality series The Tester will return for a third season and the online casting call begins today! This is your chance to get on the show!
We are holding an online casting call and competition inviting gamers from across the country to submit a profile for a chance to become a member of the 12-person cast of "The Tester 3."
While the producers will be looking at every profile, remember that one lucky gamer is voted onto the cast by you! And, last year, you guys voted Mickey Paradis (aka "8bitmickey") onto the show.
We're not only looking for competitive, seasoned gamers, but we also want to see your personality and passion. Here's a look at some past video submissions from folks you might recognize.
"The Tester - Season 3" promises to be bigger and bolder than last season. For starters, the winner of the third season gets a production job at our world-famous Santa Monica Studios, home of the God of War franchise, working on an undisclosed PlayStation 3 exclusive title.
We'll be providing more information in the coming months about Season 3, but for now go to our casting site and create a profile that includes a photo and video about yourself.
The deadline for "The Tester 3" cast submissions is September 16, but don't wait to enter; community voting starts on Wednesday, August 24. You won't want to miss the chance to start acquiring votes!
Season 2 of "The Tester," produced by 51 Minds Entertainment, premiered exclusively on the PlayStation Network on November 2, 2010.
To catch up on the intense competition of the first two seasons of "The Tester," visit the PlayStation Store for free downloads of all episodes in both high-definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) formats, or visit www.thetester.com.
So, create a profile, upload a video, and get your friends involved. We'll all be watching!
