Game testing…

I’ve made mention a few times here on ye olde journal that I used to be fairly big in the games arena. We dont really do much with the games industry these days here at work, mostly because there isn’t as much testing anymore… No need to hit QA really hard before gold master when you can just push a patch for the game they downloaded anyway.

Anyway, have some history!

Some X-Box debug and dev kits, and some Game Cube dev boxes.

A big pile of Nintendo DS handhelds and some Nintendo Wii debug and dev kits. There’s a “Nitro” DS emulator there on the bottom shelf.

A herd of PS2 test kits and some PSP dev kits.

PS3 test kits. Fun fact: Poorly optimized PS3 games can cause the dev kit to pull about 12 amps – we popped a lot of breakers way back when…

Xbox 360 test and dev kits.
