It's time for the third season of the PlayStation Network's exclusive original competitive reality series, "The Tester."
Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC (SCEA) has announced the panel lineup and cast members for Season 3. Once again, a set of die-hard gamers will compete for a job as a Production Associate at Sony's Santa Monica Studio (yep, the God of War team).

"Additional distinguished gaming industry guests" will scrutinize the 12 contestants; the winner receives not only the aforementioned job, but also: a $5,000 signing bonus, a 55" 3D Bravia 3D TV, a PlayStation 3, and a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium.
