QA/Game Testing Scams

I doubt that anyone will fall for one of those, but anyway…

Whenever you type in “qa testing games” or some sort of search query like that, you would inevitably see on those sites in results:

http://www.gamertestingground.com/

http://www.becomeagametester.com/

http://beagametester.com/

Or some variation on that.

Needless to say, those websites are as fake as can be, from claims that its incredibly easy to become game tester to an invitation to pay 70 bucks for a chance to become one. Last link (betagamester.com) actually does contain some tips on gaming industry, but then there’s all the same crap underneath it all.

Sloperama provides an excellent illustration of what QA actually is and why you shouldn’t fall for “$170 for testing” trap:
