    Get Paid to Test Video Games

    www.gametesterguide.com

    So i came across this site which says they'll pay you to test beta versions of their games, and most cases you get to keep the copies.

    sent an email asking about info and such, and got this reply back.

    "To prospective game tester:

    Hello and welcome. My name is Tad, I and would like
    introduce you to one of the ONLY opportunities to be
    paid to play video games. We are one of maybe
    2 or 3 similar companies in our field, because its
    simply so hard to get reliable testers who give honest
    feedback and wont just run off with all of our beta or
    unreleased xbox, ps2, psp, nintendo, etc; games....all
    which can be expensive & time consuming. WE ARE
    LOOKING FOR HONEST WORKERS...WHO WILL RETURN OUR WORK.
    You will be able to make an amazing collection of
    unreleased games in a matter of no time (i have 100s
    of x box games) on top of being paid. The only games
    that must be returned are ones that are requested back
    by the maker, (which means the game probably wont be
    released).

    If you think you are qualified, and are at least 15
    years of age or older...I invite you to check out our
    website. - http://www.freewebs.com/localgametester (we
    are just using this one to keep tabs on local
    gamers....we have a stats counter)

    AFTER YOU LOOK AT THE WEBSITE...GO TO GOOGLE.COM AND
    SEARCH VIDEO GAME TESTERS. gametesterguide is the
    highest ranked, google sponsored link, you can also
    find reviews about our website from there. We are also
    clickbank approved. (an online standard for thousands
    of internet businesses) SO YOU CAN TRUST US!!! IF YOU
    FEEL YOU CANT...STOP NOW!!!

    Our service is excellent towards our testers and game
    makers, and we are investing our money to make an
    almost IMPOSSIBLE idea like this work. The reason WE
    can do this is because the game companies I work with
    trust my company with their newly released products.
    (which can be dangerous if a new innovative game is
    coming out) We hold their products to extreme secrecy
    until they are finally released, and our testers
    should too. This program is here for everyone, and has
    given a lot of chances to the right people. On top all
    the gaming material, we provide you with information
    about real video game companies, and the correct
    contact info to get a shot a working for them. I was
    in those shoes at one point, and got my big break from
    someone...so its all gotta start somewhere! We also
    will supply you with free access to freegamedownloadz
    , because we need you to be able to compare with ANY
    POSSIBLE game in the past. (which they have)

    If you feel that this program is for you, all sign up
    info is on the website. (we are not web design pro's,
    so neither is our website) Again, please don't use
    this as a way to collect new, unreleased games...but
    as a way to give your feedback before the game comes
    out. This program won't continue to work unless
    everyone works together. Thanks and good luck!

    Hrm . . . sounds pretty intriguing.

    Does anybody know if this is a scam or not?

    If you want to test games, go directly to gamemakers. They will not charge you, but you have to get on the their lists.

    This guy bought one of the clickbank stupid products and is trying to scam out some fools. And yes, his website is probably made by 10 year old.

    haha, I can give all that information to you for FREE! I work in the industry.

    Basically, Game Testers are the bottom of the totem pole in the industry. They work under the Quality Assurance are paid close to minimum wage (their claim that you get paid $80/hr is utter bull****. Even programmers dont get paid that much per hour and they are the ones making the games). A basic Game Tester/Quality Assurance will ge tpaid about $12/hr to $15/hr depending on the project size and budget (yes a games' budget includes those who are paid to play/test the games, amazing isn't it?).

    Want a job as a game tester? Just apply to the companies directly. Why pay $60 to someone else? A company wont simply "send" a game through the mail (that's like putting a Hong Kong pirate in a DVD pressing plant). Its unsecure, and most times, you'll be testing games in their Alpha and beta stages, meaning, if it leave the "company's" confinement, it'll be easy for them to pass it along to friends etc.

    I love how the site posts a check. Oh yeah, right, uhuh, not even a "real" company check (a real video game company would not hand write you paychecks). A search on Lumco LLC turns up squat.
