I am not sure how legit it is, but I know it's possible to be a game tester, just not online. IGN and Nintendo are both places that have people who test video games, or have challenges so to speak they do. IGN had a employee challenge himself by losing weight ont he wii fit. If that's something you like, then you could always look into local places. Now, there was one website that was a game software company, they offered to be a game tester but you had to go to their offices I think.

There are, but you have to look hard for them. As you can expect, these are pretty popular jobs...and everyone wants to do them. Remember, that being a beta tester isn't just about playing the game. It's about reviewing it, finding all the bugs and reporting them etc etc. It's not all fun and games, it's actually work. Good luck with finding a beta tester position!

Well for people that likes to play, and don´t mind to spend to holy day doing it, thats a good thing.By the way, to make 160$ a day, i don´t think that you can do this just playing as tester/beta.Any way if you get some information about where they pay you to do this, let me know ;]
