Sony is looking for someone who exhibits the same qualities of the characters in the game, who has extraordinary powers of leadership and decision-making, and with real CEO potential.
“We’re looking for someone who has a vast knowledge of gaming, an outstanding record of achievement and a killer instinct. The person chosen to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will blow all applicants out of the water with their keen eye for strategy, boardroom combat and ability to flush out corporate enemies,” David Hine, director of sales and marketing, said in a statement.
The lucky gamer chosen to be the big boss for a day will be walking away with a PlayStation Vita Wi-Fi system, a PlayStation 4, and Infamous Second Son Collector’s edition.
They are expected to be “ruthless in their approach and have eyes in the back of their head, not to mention the ability to absorb conduits.”
They also need to be strategic, “especially when it comes to sneaking up on lesser management with a neon weapon or making ranged attacks with smoke projectiles.”
The job, which has raised to mark the upcoming release of the Infamous Second Son on PS4, includes carrying out “approved activities” as the boss.
Interested gamers from New Zealand can apply for the position through http://enjoyyourpower.co.nz/ where applicants will be asked to answer a short quiz.
