PlayStation 3: Reality TV

Sony is announcing today that it will launch an original reality TV series on its PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable game devices.

The show is an eight-episode series called The Tester and it is about a bunch of gamers who compete to get a job as a game tester at Sony’s U.S. game division in San Diego, as well as a $5,000 signing bonus. It’s part of Sony’s push to create “original digital” content to make its games consoles more broadly appealing.

The series will air on the PlayStation Network from Feb. 18 to April 8.
