Why would gaming companies pay me to beta test games?
Well, gaming companies want to make sure that games are bug free to minimize recalls and refunds which in turn save them millions of dollars.
Don’t programmers can’t catch all the glitches?
Not necessarily. A good gamer is more likely to find a bug/glitch in the system.
What kind of games will I test?
Hard to say, most beta test games have not been released yet.
