Game Testing Companies: Do You Wanna Get Paid for Playing Video Games??
At all times, playing video games, many people wondered if they could make money out of this occupation. As a result, they started to shoot the video, do their lessons, talk about all kinds of tricks, but only some got wind of the fact that it was possible to get paid for playing games.
Game testing companies invite inveterate gamblers to participate in testing video games and earn money doing such a work!
And so, what is meant by the term “testing”? Everything is pretty simple, in other words, video game developers themselves sincerely want their products to be of the best quality, but in order to achieve this goal it is necessary to minimize the number of different defects and bugs in them. And since the game developers are unable to eliminate all the problems single-handedly, they choose to hire the gamers.
Testing unreleased games and earn money:
Yet, what the main role of the testers and what are they get paid for?
The main requirement for fans of video games is to find defects and notify the developers about their findings, as well as give their feedbacks on the game, namely what is missing in the game and what needs to be finalized.
By the way, beta testing companies are known to involve people in trying out the games or other software products out before these are distributed to the target audience.
Now let us consider all the benefits and disadvantages of game testing done by random testers, as well as how much you can earn as a game tester.
Benefit: You do things you love: play a video game, at that you receive a closed beta version to test. To be more concrete, the game has not been released yet, but you are the first to use it.
Income from this enjoyable engagement is quite significant. You may earn from 8 to 15 dollars per hour. (You certainly have a friend who plays video games more than 4 hours per day).
And now it is time to mention disadvantages of the work: when it comes to making money from video game testing, the things do not go exactly the way we want. To be approved to run a test (not just the beta test, namely to get paid to do the test), you first need to find an employer, and then wait in a small queue to get hired for the job but this cannot guarantee your regular stable income. However, if you are a really good and, more importantly, well-known gamer you will be very often invited to execute a variety of online tests, because just your opinion will be very important for developers.
Performance testing companies know how to make any game or other software work smoothly for long period of time.
