So you are sitting around the house playing video games. What if you could actually get paid to play new video games that havent hit the market yet? Companies are now looking for video game testers for their newly developed games and are willing to pay for the time. Most people think this doesnt actually happen but for a large video game company, who else better to test their games and work out all the bugs then actual gamers?
Over 50 companies are now looking for paid game testers. These companies arent only in the US but also worldwide. Why would a video game company pay someone to test their games? If a company releases a new game but find out on a certain level the game freezes, or you can walk through a certain wall, or just minor glitches that were missed by the developers then that is a big deal. If the game is a computer game, the company can just release a quick patch but if its a video game they cannot so they have to make sure the game is in 100% tip top shape before releasing it. The game industry is over a $50 billion business now days, they want perfect products which require vigorous testing.
The thing is though where do you find such opportunities? You cant just open up the newspaper and see in the job ads a video game tester. These are usually filled up quickly but as new companies join the market and also small companies growing and needing more testers, the opportunity is still there. Google search for game testers and youll find several ways to break into this market but normally the best way is to contact video game companies directly, and flat out ask them if they are looking for video game testers and if so how you can apply. You may be surprised by what you find.
