Always make your thread title, post and any tags you add to it say the same exact thing.

No games company is going to pay you to beta test at home. Any company that does pay testers would not allow you to take content home and potentially risk a leak of game content to the internet.

Plus game testing positions do not involve actually playing the game proper. Rather you'd be playing the same small section over and over and over and over again in order to find bugs to report to the developers.

Plus you need to live where the games are ;)

People get paid for Alpha testing not Beta testing. 

You need the right connections to do this. (know the right people) 

Or have a job in that business. 

So if you know a game developer and he/she wanna pay you to test the game then you can get paid. 

But I think if you know them personally you do not take money for doing this ;) 

That would be a bit rude I think. 

Well, first you follow the rainbow down to the magical pot of gold in Unicorn land.

Well I playtest at Ubisoft Montreal and I had to beat AC 3 SP,I played Ghost Recon Future Soldier MP and so on, and you don't have to repeat the same part over and over unless your in the early tests of the game and there's so many bugs in that section.The people behind game testers look for bugs there's 8 game testers in a room and 4 people behind us looking for bugs, we gotta basically write is example was this mission fun? What character did you like the most? What character did you like the least? Besides those questions you gotta write a big review on the game both negative and positive. The reason I asked on the Xbox Forums is because Ubisoft always tells me no that's impossible it can not be done,so I was thinking maybe there's another gaming company out there that does Beta testing from home.which now I know it does not exist.But game testing is playing and beating SP games and playing MP games you get paid like 10$ an hour or you get to pick some Ubisoft titles from a game list they give you there like 15-25$ a game brand new since it's the company that gives it to you.They give you a choice between cash or games or both like example you get 320$ in a week for game testing they will show you the Ubisoft games list first because they save by you taking there games over cash since it's there product I usually take a mix of like 1 game with cash.

I am not an expert or in the biz at all but wouldn't being a game tester require you to be at the game companies office being watched under constant strict supervision. Especially when the game is a AAA title they wouldn't allow you to test games at your house. No doubt there would be a ton of legal mumbo jumbo and a non discloser agreement to sign. You would have to be a suit to have the ability to test from home. Even then it would probably be against company policy.

how did you get that job at ubisoft montrel i there a number that you called or did u find it online or what can you tell me please

First you must be expose to Beta game radiation. Try the sites in New Mexico or your local nuclear plant.

I doubt you'll get to do it at home and get paid.

There are far too many people willing to do it for free.

Not as glamorous as you think.
