Valve Looking For Seattle Area Gamers For Beta Testing Of Software and Hardware

Valve is currently looking for potential beta testers of unreleased software and hardware in the Seattle/Bellvue area. The popular gaming developer recently announced on the Steam forums that it's currently looking for candidates to playtest both unreleased software and hardware prototypes.

Currently the testing will be limited to participants that are localized to the Seattle/Bellevue area as testers will need to be able to drop by Valve's office and give the beta products a thorough testing. Gamers in other areas don't worry, Valve said it will eventually open up testing to gamers nationwide, eventually even offering international support.

Via the Steam forums:
Valve Playtester Survey
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. 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.

Thanks for your interest in helping us make better products!

The survey, linked above, asks only general questions. Things like your gaming background including favorite video game, the average difficulty setting, the number of systems and games actually owned, and so on. Valve also wants to know if candidates actually like first-party titles like Half-Life, Counter-Strike and Left 4 Dead, and what title(s) they have actually purchased and played.
