Of course you have. Many of us have spent hours playing on the PlayStation or Xbox… to get paid to do so would be a lot of fun.
Well, PlayStation are on the lookout for gamers to test their games as they prepare to release the PS5.
Job vacancies for ‘Localisation Testers’ have appeared on Indeed, with one of the requirements being: ‘Passionate games player.’ That’s not all you need, though. The three positions listed are for a Brazilian, Russian and Arabic tester, so you will need to be fluent in more than one language.
If you can speak Portuguese, Russian or Arabic as well as English, then what are you waiting for?
