New PlayStation 3 show pits gamer against gamer

In the reality show "The Tester," the top prize is a job.

Sony Corp. is launching the show on its PlayStation 3 on Feb. 18. The premise? Pit a broad swath of video game fans against one another to see who's the best at testing out games.

The winner will get a job as a real game tester at Sony. It's an entry-level job, a way to get a start in the industry.

The show's 11 contestants include a writer from Ohio, a cheerleading coach from California and a used car salesman from Maryland.

Sony says the show is part of its strategy to provide content beyond games on the PlayStation. This includes music, movies and TV episodes.
