On facebook, Sony are looking for testers for the new PS4, apparantly all the testers will get to keep their PS4`s they get to do the testing on, all you have to do to be within a chance of getting your hand on a PS4 early is share a photo that sony have put up on facebook and like their PS4 page, then they randomly pick their testers, doubt i will get offered the chance but have done it anyway lol

I saw this on my GF's facebook yesterday, it had been shared by someone else and smells like bulls***t to me, given the picture you're supposed to share is the fake PS4 mockup which has been doing the rounds recently.

In fact, a quick google came up with:

There's one for the new Xbox too. Xbox Live & Playstation Network are the page names but only created in the last couple of days.

More than likely a load of BS but shared it anyway

Just be careful guys, these are more than likely Phishing scams, i know "sharing" doesn't open you up to much but anything more (like allowing access to your FB) could end up being really annoying.

They are all scams. The ps4 one, the xbox 720 one, the free iphone one and the free ipad one. I can't believe how many people fall for this.

Some guy was complaining yesterday because he had taken 9 surveys and still could not sign up to sony's beta test. How dumb can you get.

Anyone found sharing this or the other crap going about on such sites like Facebook, should have their internet switched off until they can pass a test. I'm sick of people being so gullible.

I saw a couple of people post this on Facebook too. I had the intelligence to recognise it for the scam it is and reported it as a scam to Facebook

I strongly suggest others do the same

It really isn't rocket science people. Why the hell would sony do a public beta test on hardware that as of yet no one outside of Sony has even laid eyes on!

I'd imagine all testing would be done privately behind closed doors ... Obvious scam! ... They're probably collecting people's information & selling it 2 some dodgy marketing agency who specialise in cold calling!

The grammar is even poor, if that isn't a giveaway I don't know what is...

People are always blinded to getting something for nothing, it's why the Nigerian 419 scam is so successful. The bigger the potential reward, the less they see the obvious signs that it's not true.
