Sony Creates Reality TV Show, The Tester
Ever wanted to be a big game developer? Go to parties, meet Hideo Kojima and do lines of coke with the developers of LittleBigPlanet? Well, you're not going to find any of that in Sony's new reality TV show The Tester.
The new reality show pits unemployed college-dropouts and misguided high school graduates against each other in a battle to earn the coveted title of Sony QA Tester.
Said Sony: "We're really glad something as important as a minimum wage job can be decided by challenging these kids to a month of eating bugs, sleeping outdoors, going without showers and many other things that real QA testers are required to do each and every day. Also, we have a special guest start planned: Sarah Palin!"
Even with most reality shows failing miserably in ratings this year, the producers of The Tester hope to show Sony customers that they are still hip, and totally with the times. Those times, of course, being the year 2006, the last time reality TV was in style.
