Achieve the Dream Job and Be a Video Game Tester at Home

If you are always playing video games, what would you say is the dream job? Could it be getting paid to play video games as an at home game tester? What could get better than that? You are qualified for the e job if you have quite a bit of experience playing various video games. Can you do this from home though? The commute to work is a breeze when you work from home.

Some gamers will tell you that you are dreaming the impossible dream about getting game testing jobs at home. There are even game testers working directly for gaming companies that will agree. They couldn’t be more wrong. Though the majority of game tester jobs do reside within the game companies themselves, it does not mean that the game testing jobs at home are nonexistent. It all depends on the game type and the size of the game company.

Detailed research is needed to find the right job, but with patience it can be found. There are more chances of getting in company jobs than work at home jobs for game testers. A good economy means high sales which means more videos which means more testers needed. They cannot house enough at the company office. This also means that a bad economy means less work for the home based game tester as companies are trying to cut costs and get as much profit as they can. Home game testing is always needed. There are just times when it is needed more. You need to be fully aware of how the companies are responding to the economic situation.

The First Video Game Console Of Microsoft

The Xbox was released on November 15 2001 in US, February 22, 2002 in Japan, and March 14, 2002 in Europe and Australia. Xbox is the first-step of the software giant Microsoft to enter the industry of gaming. It is the console that competes with some of the gaming giants namely, Sony with its Playstation, Sega with Saturn, and Nintendo’s GameCube.

With the help of their best-selling game called Halo, Microsoft was successful in dominating the industry that Nintendo, Sega, and PlayStation were holding for years. I personally think that Microsoft owes a lot to Halo, because it will be very hard for them to knock the game console kings if they don’t have this excellent game, which allows the players to compete with each other using the Xbox Live.

Xbox became very popular among gamers because it has the features that no gaming console could match during that time. With unlimited resources from its mother company, Xbox used billions of dollars for advertising and quickly rise to the top and even caused one of the game console pioneers to pull out, Sega. This is the start of the pierce competition between three of the top game consoles today.
