Nintendo announces the select few fortunate enough to obtain the ultimate summer job. Seriously, they get paid to play games.
Forty-eight Nintendo fans heard the sweetest news today: You're hired! Chosen from hundreds who auditioned for coveted roles on the Nintendo Street Team, these lucky winners will get paid to play the newest games for Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy Advance SP at music festivals, fairs and sporting events all summer.
Six teams of eight from Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, New York, Los Angeles and Seattle make up the Nintendo Street Team. And, as if getting paid $100 a day for a three-day workweek is not enough, the teams will compete for a $40,000 team bonus. To prepare for their rigorous summer of video game play, the new Nintendo Street Teams are training today at Nintendo boot camps in their respective cities. In Los Angeles, Troy McClain, the street-smart star who appeared on The Apprentice, will coach one team from his own California-style "Board Room" on the beach.
