A Look Back at ‘The Tester’ Season 1 Winner: Where is Will Powers Now?

PSBlog: "It’s been almost six months since the end of the inaugural season of “The Tester”. In April, we introduced you to our first winner, Will “Cyrus” Powers. As we prepare for the second season of “The Tester,” set to premiere on Tuesday, November 2, we thought it would be a good time to catch up with Will about his experience as a QA Tester for PlayStation, how it has affected his gaming habits and impacted his trophy collection. So what’s up with Will these days? Well, here’s what we learned…"

UNCyrus3293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

Sports Champions is the only released game that I can talk about. There's more coming soon though.

@Taggart: Hush, green's not a good color on you, m8

Taggart4513293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

I'm just laughing that this is here.

Edit: Not jealous this time. I mean I am, but I'm not lashing out at you. Legitimate giggling as to how much exposure you're getting, again, that's all.

Is there really a Move vs DS3 battle with testers or something like that with socom?

I assume he's enjoying the hours and hours of replaying the same section of whatever video game he's been ordered to test...that and the average salary that goes with being a tester.

UNCyrus3293d ago

well, you could just ask me

GiantJedi3293d ago

Yeah man, you and the black guy were my favs on the tester!

8-bit3293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

Yeah he is a regular joe and he is on N4G ^ I have run into Cyrus in HOME once too. Glad he won and hope he actually gets to Japan like he wants to!

BiggCMan3293d ago

i cant wait for season 2!! i loved the tester, lots of fun to watch and gave me at least one thing to look forward too every week in the store.

8-bit3293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

Yeah, as much as reality TV shows are cheesy (Tester included) it was enjoyable to watch. Especially in the Home Theater with people to chat with. You often run into cast members there too. I met 3 of last seasons cast in HOME, good times


Apparently, Season 2 there are more Girls than boys now. Should be more fun.

trikster403293d ago

Wow. I thought I was doing good at 23. Stupid multiplayer trophies keep me from getting so many plats...I hate MP trophies.


UNCyrus3293d ago

46 now... those questions are from last week :)

BiggCMan3293d ago

23 and 46...christ. i thought 14 was special haha. still, im the only one of my friends with so many so thats somethin at least. i agree with multiplayer trophies though. they suck, even if you are an avid online player, they still suck. killzone, resistance, gta 4, bad company. those are some of the harder games i can think of. oh also socom and warhawk.

Zydake3293d ago

I have a few too. I guess it's time to go get Hannah montana

Joostin3293d ago


Prior to 1.06 though.

lodossrage3293d ago

Your Plat numbers are insane. Hell I think I only have like 8 if I remember correctly. And some of those aren't even 100% because of download content lol

SexyPrawns3293d ago

Hey, Cyrus...why did they have to make all of you look like complete jerks? Seriously. There's absolutely no way you guys were actually that two-faced to each other. Sam's a nice guy. He wouldn't be like that.

How's the business treatin' ya, by the way?

UNCyrus3293d ago

Lol... you think any of us are actually the people that they "portrayed" us to be on the show? They just made characters out of us so the audience could relate to us. Can't really blame em, but everyone on the show is nice and a real person, that's the most important thing to keep in mind.
