RALEIGH, North Carolina (Reuters) – If 24-hour coverage of the Olympic Games in China isn’t enough for fans, Sega has rolled out the official video game of the 2008 events in Beijing for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and mobile phones.

It offers 38 events from track and field to swimming to judo and has online play for the first time in an Olympics game.

Every four years, a different publisher tackles the Summer Games.

Sega enlisted U.S. gold medal contenders Amanda Beard, Tyson Gay, Nastia Liukin and Reese Hoffa for the cover of “Beijing 2008: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games.”

  1. As a video game tester you will get paid to play video games, get paid to play unreleased video games before they come out, get free copies of video games, get access to cheat codes, level secrets, and other bugs that only game testers know about, get real world experience working with company departments and learn about the development, marketing, manufacturing, customer service, and testing phases of each game.

    All I want to do is get paid for something I really want to do.
