If you’ve ever wanted to be a video game tester, this is your chance! I’ve been looking for a legitimate way to get paid to play new video games before they have been released for years and I finally came across a way to do so (you should never pay to become a video game tester). If this sounds like something that interests you, you’ll want to sign up for VMC’s Global Beta Test Network community.
They have paid job openings on a weekly basis and all work (gameplay) is done completely from your home throughout the sessions.
What type of players are needed?
In order to qualify, you must be at least 18 years old, willing to sign a NDA, follow instructions well, be conscious of deadlines, and professional at all times.
What countries or regions can participate? How do I sign up?
VMC’s network extends across the world to every continent. You can apply right now by clicking on your region in the following list:
During the application process, you’ll be asked some information about yourself including which gaming platforms you are available to test on including your ID for each platform. If you’re available testing with a smartphone, tablet or virtual reality headset, you’ll also indicate that at the time of sign up. If you have any previous QA experience, be sure to include that on your application.
What platforms are available?
VMC currently offers opportunities for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4. There are also opportunities available for smartphones, tablets, and VR headsets.
If you have any questions about the opportunity, you can contact the GBTN team directly and find out more information about the opportunity on their website here.

Good luck and please post your experience below.
