Effective at approximately 13:00 Pacific Daylight Time, Sega began taking applications for
beta testers for the company's online gaming network, Sega.net. Sega is seeking the services
of roughly 100 volunteers that will be expected to put the fledgling gaming network through
the rigors of hardcore game testing.
The 100 beta-testers will be selected from the pool of applicants. According to Sega's Chief Technology
Officer Lynn MacConnell, only a few short hours after the application went up on the Sega.net website Sega.net had
already gathered info from well over 1000 applicants.
Sega.net's beta-test application is only going to be up for another 24 hours, after which
selected candidates will be contacted by MacConnell. The short and easy application form can be accessed via
Sega.net's home page, or PC users can go to the form
directly by clicking here. Good luck!
Gamers chosen to serve as official beta testers will be contacted direcly by MacConnell. They will be
expected to test several titles
over the course of August 21st to August 29th. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and be willing
to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Sega.net launches as a fully-functional gaming
network on September 7.
