The Tester: Was It Successful?


The answer to that question, yes, yes it was.

This is something I hadn’t heard about until today, The Tester has recently finished and announced the winner, which you can see here.

So, what is ‘The Tester’?

The Tester is the exclusive PS3 reality show, where contestants are challenged to see who has what it takes to be the next great game tester. It all starts with 11 contestants and only 1 is chosen the victor. Each week the contestants are exposed to various gaming challenges to prove they have what it takes. Recently some official numbers were revealed about the popularity of the show, more after the jump.

The Tester was a solid success. Susan Panico, senior director for the PlayStation Network has confirmed that downloads for the show has reached nearly 2 million and is still climbing.  That sort of viewership is substantial and likely has garnered notice from some Sony big wigs.

Hopefully there will be a second series to this, at the Playstation Gaming Blog, we will keep you up to date with any developments regarding this matter.
