This season, participants will play, invent, and argue for an opportunity to join Sony's Santa Monica Studio as a production associate. In addition to gainful employment, the winner will also take home a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium, a 3D Bravia TV, PS3, and a $5,000 bonus.

Series host Meredith Molinari will be making a return for the third season. So too will panelists Adrianne Curry and SCEA's senior release manager Brent Gocke. Similar to previous seasons, the show will also include cameos from other notable developers and other video game icons.

The first episode of The Tester 3 will debut for download on February 7 on the PlayStation Network. Full bios for each contestant have been posted to The Tester website.
