Video Game Tester Programmes

Due to many requests for more information regarding Game Testing Programmes, we at Computer Game and Console Reviews decided to investigate. There are hundreds of programmes out there, and they all want your money. So if you’ve decided that you want to become a Video Game Tester, choosing the right programme can be extremely daunting or expensive…!

We have compiled this report after checking and confirming over 20 websites who are offering such programmes. A lot of sites refused to refund us our money, and we only asked for a refund if we found that the site contained old or publicly available material. We do not want to list these rogue sites (due to legal issues) but we can list the best sites. We have narrowed it down to the Top 3.

These sites contain original information and they are created by current Computer Game Testers who are actively testing right now. These people are experts in their field and really know what they are talking about. Two of the sites can be tried risk-free, so if you are still not sure, these would be your best options. Also after our tests, it became apparent that you only need to join one of these sites as they all offer plenty of employment opportunities. All sites contain user reviews so be sure to check out those as well.

Special thanks to our in-house team who verified all the programs – Adon, Kellen, Mike, and Sam.
