WARNING! SPOILER ALERT! If you have not watched The Tester Season Finale, stop reading now, grab some popcorn, and go directly to the PlayStation Store to download the last episode. Of course, come back when you’re done and keep reading…

After eight episodes of battling through the highly entertaining challenges in PlayStation’s first original competitive reality series, The Tester, Will “Cyrus” Powers beat out 10 other hopeful gamers from across the country to win the job as an official PlayStation game tester, as well as a $5,000 signing bonus.

The Tester – The Winner is Crowned!

What did Cyrus think was his toughest challenge? What is he looking forward to most about his new career? And, does he really have the Hannah Montana Platinum Trophy?

These are just a few of the questions Brent Gocke, release manager from SCEA and The Tester panelist, asks Cyrus during his first official PlayStation Network interview available from PlayStation Store this Thursday.

Here’s a short version of the interview also now running in PlayStation Home:

Congrats again to Cyrus! We wish him the best of luck with his job working for PlayStation’s Quality Assurance department and hope to check in with him down the road to see how he’s doing.

You can also still catch the entire eight-episode season available from PlayStation Store in both Standard and High Definition formats.

  • @49 Have to agree with you there. She was the only eye candy the show had. I just don’t know about some of the stuff they made her wear. They looked like Home costumes.

  • Nauseaus was better than cyrus in all the contests, he was lucky thats it. I am so mad for the results that I will buy a xbox 360, to play allans awake. Will keep my ps3 as well but not as my only console.

  • You see. This is why i LOVE comment sections. I swear to you i read every one of the comments and they were either funny , congratulatory , and some were downright true. Love you comment section. Until next time!

  • Good god, no one should have that many platinum trophies! He’s a much more hardcore gamer than he appears…

  • when is youtube gonna work on the browser…everytime i try to watch a video its says upgrae..this is ps3’s biggest downfall. IMO.iWe have been too long overdue for a damn flash,jave update


  • Cyrus, I Congratulate you on your 10 dollar/hour job. I hope it was all worth it. lol, what a joke.

  • This guy cyrus was just the all around good person. i have alot of freinds who believe nautious should have won but i told them i dont think nautious would have been happy as a tester. He expected to be able to play games first but as a tester he would have hated the job. I think if sony sends nautious free games to play he would be happy, especially if cyrus tested them first.

  • Congrats Cyrus! I was rooting for you and Nauseous all the way.

    Also… Meredith FTW! You should ask her out on a date Cyrus!

  • i LOVE Meredith. she’s soooo hot. and i actually converse with her on twitter a lot, and she’s really awesome. she’s from the same area as me also. F THE HATERS
