Sony has begun casting for a new reality show series to air exclusively on the PlayStation 3. Contestants on the show will compete to earn a job as a Sony game tester. You can't make this stuff up. Dubbed "The Tester," the show will see a group of gamers competing in "a series of elimination challenges designed to test their mental prowess, dexterity, and video game knowledge and compete to win a gamer's ultimate dream job--an official PlayStation game tester." The series, developed by "Rock of Love" and "Flavor of Love" producer 51 Minds, will air this winter. The official website is now accepting applications.
