Make money from home game testing?
May 3, 2012 8:54pm CST
I have searched the net a while looking for online jobs. I thought video game testing that would be cool if I could did it from home. I found out recently that you can from the big name companies Blizzard and Sony and EA. My other half has this obsession with gaming I enjoy games ,but I rather spend my time looking for a online job and when I find a job do that. I didn't know you didn't need to have lots of schooling to be a tester or have years of experience I only found it out recently. I play WOW I have found bugs and glitches in that game and it's online and I'm not paid for that. The tech that had to get me out of the scene that had a glitch and I got trapped he's some gamer geek that gets paid the big bucks to make sure I don't get trapped. Sign me up for that there's a guy who does that for a living on you tube and I would love to do that I'm sure it's not always easy having to report problems. Part-time you can earn 700 a week and 2800 a month I would love that starting.

Well, i don't know about doing this job at home, but Beta testers are usually didn't get paid, because they just been given the privileges to play the game before it even came out for free before anyone can even buy it. Most beta testers online would be given the game itself for free since they just play the game and report the problem. The job that you are mentioning are also called beta testers, but they actually have the degree and stuff and working for the company itself like Blizzards, Sony, and Electronic Arts. You actually has to have the degree or education needed to get that $600 a week becoming a beta testers since you would have to actually know the details of the problem to make your reports and maybe have to fix it yourself. It's not like online beta testers that we're selected online and your report would just be "There's a bug at level 6" or "My character freeze when i go that way or walk there". It's much more than that, but it's still fun that your work is playing games. Just that you would have to know more than just playing it.

Hi Beta tester they do get paid and you can do that job from home. They get paid well that's what I'm thinking about doing they work for the big companies like Blizzard that who I would like to work for. You don't need a degree I watched some other videos there's some people who worked in the offices and did game testing they didn't have the experience they were a gamer and they got job offers. The key is making the cv sound good. I'm a writer I'm also very detailed I play wow and I'm noticed glitches in the game and bugs and that game is out on the market?? There don't always hire people with a degree the people from home have education about the games sure my other half is a hard core gamer I like playing video games I spend my time trying to find a job online while he plays his game. I have nothing to lose I will give it a shot and see what happens and make money hopefully playing wow they have the expansion coming out some time and I want to test it before it's on the market. Blizzard hired a 16 recently to do beta testing jobs, he doesn't have a degree. Let you guys know about this if it's real that would be really cool.

Well, of course they can hire a 16 years old. Because he will give a short report on what the bugs and glitches are in the game. And in the end, he will get the game for free and that's it. I know since some one my friends have done some beta testing for LoL and HON. For you to get paid, you need to make a detailed about what the bug and problems are and how to fix them. But hey, there's no harm for you to try it out. Be sure to keep me posted on how you are doing since i am a gamer too.

That would be a really cool job to do if you are a hard core gamer. They always say find something that you love to do and found out a way to get paid for it. Just working part time I don't even make half of that at my job so it seems to be a good paying job. I also though you had to have some type of experience to be a tester. I guess they would want people who would just play the game like they do at home. I am also looking for more ways to make extra income online so I wish you all the best of luck.

Hi I found it on youtube and there was some people on there that said they worked as game testers and worked from home some worked in an office, it was enough to convince me that they really did do this the testimony's was enough for me to say I will give it a shot. I have nothing to lose I'm going to be on a leave from work pretty much this week I'm expecting again, I'm going to be put on csst because of my work conditions. I also don't like my job I want to replace it I need to replace it at this point. I will let you guys know if it's for real I really hope so, I found out you don't need experience you just have to have enough education about how the games work and so forth I've played different games. My other half is a gamer geek I enjoy playing he does raids I'm not attached to raids or anything so it's perfect for me i can put in the time and I don't have people that expect me to game with them I can do my work and do that while he plays his game and I will be playing the game and testing and reporting the bugs and getting paid. I used to think his game addiction was a waist until I saw those videos on youtube. I'm going to check it out and see if it's for real. I will keep people posted.

Almost all the sites which pay you to test video games are scams which ask you pay some bucks first. Still ,there are some legit ones but i cann't find on the search engine and i have no motivation to search more info about it coz i do not reside in U.S. so i think i have few chances to join this earning program. If you are also interested in flash games like puzzle, arcade or skills games, you can try searching for this earning opportunities by playing games.

Hi check on youtube type in work from home game testing, that's what I typed in I know there's a lot of scams out there. There was a couple of people that said that worked from home doing game testing and it was enough to convince me to give it a shot. I'm going to test it out and see what happens I have nothing to lose I need to stay home with my little girl i have another one on the way and this week my doc is going to put me on csst so I'm on leave pretty much. I don't like my job either, I know this week is my last week at my job she doesn't know I plan on finding something else on line and I'm gone. I will let you know if this job is real take care

get paid for playing games! it is looks like a great work to utilize our pass time. Just get ourself refreshed by playing games and have money as well. But, i think this is not that much simple that we are thinking about it. Definitely they need reviews or some technical response against their game.
