We have been getting the odd email from gamers telling us that they have landed a job where they are getting paid good money to play their favorite games!!
One recent email set us off to do some research. Twenty year old video game enthusiast, Shannon, has just landed a lucrative job testing beta game versions on her favorite console!! Wah!!!
We began hunting the internet to see what we could score and quickly found the job tedious, time consuming and without results! So we contacted Shannon and she set us staright. She had found her job through a referral site that specializes in this sort of thing.
Armed with this info we set off again and quickly found some other sites that looked good as well.
Here is the lowdown on Shannon’s recommended site
This site shows where we can get paid to play video games. Some great points they make:
You can test games on the XBOX 360, PS2, PS3, PSP, Nintendo DS, Gameboy, etc but if you just stick to one platform you will reduce your job choices.
If a company pays you $40/hr to play games and find glitches for them that would otherwise ruin the game experience for the user, and possibly hurt their sales, from their perspective it’s really a good deal.
This site is GIVING AWAY A 60GB PlayStation3 + 6 Brand New PS3 Games On May 31st, 2008 to one lucky gamer….
SO go check it out!!.
We will post about the other great “how to get paid to play games” sites in future blog posts!
