Behind the scenes look at “Playtesting” games

Our friend Tim Nichols (of Microsoft Game Studio) was recently featured in a video explaining how games get tested for usability.  See the embedded video for a look behind the scenes:

Have you ever been playing a game and thought to yourself, “I just wish I could speak with the developers and let them know that this part of the game could be so much better!”? Well, now you can. Microsoft has launched PlayTest– where you can play games, give opinions and get free software. I stepped behind the scenes and behind the fake mirrored walls to show you the ins and out of life in the Playtest Labs.

You must have the Microsoft Silverlight plugin installed to view the embedded video.  If you are having problems, please visit the direct link or just download the MP4 video.
