"We have a website, Playstation.co.uk, it's a good idea to go there and see exactly what we are looking for. If you have a portfolio, then make sure you get you get it right, programmers do tests at the interview. Really we are looking for people who are good team players, communicate well, like social games, and who are really looking to fit into our culture, which I would is a really nice culture to work in.
