Valve invites fans to company headquarters for software and hardware testing


Valve is inviting fans to company headquarters to test unreleased games and prototypes for hardware, the company announced today.

Interested applicants can apply by filling out a survey on their gaming habits, favorite genres, and preferred platforms. Valve's Burton Johnsey said in a post on Valve's website. At this time the company is only accepting playtesters from the Seattle and Bellevue areas.

"We're looking for folks to come to Valve and playtest both released and unreleased versions of our games as well as play around with some of our hardware prototypes," wrote Johnsey. "If you have interest in stopping by (most sessions last around an hour), please fill out the survey below. We're looking for people local to the Seattle/Bellevue area, but you're welcome to fill out the survey no matter where you live as we may have plans for remote playtests in the future."

Valve had previously hinted at possible public beta testing for it's in-progress hardware, while internal beta testing is already underway. The company has yet to publicly disclose the nature of the hardware in development.
