Bring The Tester back!!!!

10 replies 227 views Edited Jul 27, 2014

With all the talk these days about original programming on consoles like the Halo series on XB1 and Powers coming to PS4, I cant help but remember a bit of orginal programming that came to PS3 called The Tester.

 

Sure the premise was silly: a reality show based on a group of gamers competing for a job at Playstation by going through Playstation themed challenges. I cant imagine it was too popular amoung the masses, but it was a great excuse to get together, drink and see what unfolds.

 

 

i think that it deserves another go on the PS4! maybe broadcasted on Live From Playstation with the "interact" button playing a role, so that the audience gets in on the fun

 

Just an idea. I wonder how many other people share this interest

It was a pretty cool show, I remember watching it on a family vacation. It would be cool to have more shows like that I agree

That show was cool, I enjoyed watching it.

 

It probably didn't carry on since PS probalby lost $ with the giveaways they did for winning contestants idk XD

 

If it came back id watch Smiley Wink

The Flying Grayson, Nightwing, Robin, They were about more than fight moves. They were about inspiration, comfort, trust, family. I gave that up to become a spy. a Spider man; A Tsuchigumo. I have changed.

You know that was mostl a fake reality show, right? The Job was real, most of the drama wasn't. I suspect that we won't see another one anytime soon. SMS is stuggling and I doubt has enough money to add on more testers.
