Be a Sony beta tester

Sony Europe are looking for beta testers after advertising on the Official European Playstation Forums. To go directly to the application page CLICK HERE but have a swift glance at the rules below:

Hola chic@s

We are currently looking for members of the PlayStation community who would like to take part in Beta Tests for upcoming PLAYSTATION 3 titles.

You do not need to be technically minded – we need a variety of people with differing amounts of technical expertise to help us test the games. However, you must be flexible and be prepared to set aside some of your spare time and evenings to participate in specific Test Nights and general game testing.

To take part in the Beta Tests, you must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Be able to read and give feedback in English
  • Be a European resident
  • Have a PLAYSTATION®3 with a broadband internet connection and a PLAYSTATION®Network master account.
  • Agree to the Beta Test Agreement.

If you’re interested, head over to the Beta Test Recruitment page for more information and to put your name down.

Please understand that we have a limited number of places for Beta Testing, and we can’t guarantee that everyone who applies will be able to take part.

What is a Beta Test?
A Beta Test is when we try out the online portion of a PlayStation game to detect any faults, bugs or general areas that could be improved before the game is released. The testing is done by a closed group of anything between 200 to 20,000 volunteer PlayStation gamers.

Buzz!, Everybody’s Golf, Gran Turismo, Killzone, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs, Splinter Cell, Warhawk and WRC are just some of the fantastic and varied titles that have been tested by our Beta community, months before the full game is released.

A Beta Test can last anything between 2 to 6 weeks per game, during which time participants are asked to take part in at least one Test Night per week. Test Nights usually take place on weekday evenings and can last one to two hours each.

You will also be asked to provide feedback in English about your experiences of connecting and playing the game online, and report any bugs or problems that you find via the private Beta Forums and online surveys.

Please note that any games that are sent to you for Beta testing are Beta versions only and will not be useable once the testing is complete. It is also likely that the Beta testing of a game may be limited to specific levels, tracks or online functionality of a game.

If however you dont want to be a beta tester, it doesnt really matter because it gives us at 666PS3 more of a chance.
