Looking good, although there is a minor error in the penultimate paragraph:

OK. It's a really interesting, well researched article, and these are just typing errors. Correction in brackets:
Preface -
This is a commonly asked question with surprising[ly] little resources for information [available].
... do not have to resort to paying for information that[,] in my opinion, should be free.

Playing games for money? Awesome, right? -
...aspiring testers play games every[ ]day...
...the article ‘Testing Video Games Can’t Possibly Be Hardware[Harder] Than an Afternoon With Xbox‘ ...
People get promoted, leave, [get] fired or [are] made redundant.

You might also choose to replace some of the brackets with a pair of commas, although I think I am possibly being a bit pedantic here.

Cheers. The only one I didn't change was:

As this was the actual title of the article linked. Whether it was a typo or a pun on their part is unknown.

I think that was the article about testing how good XBox's were at switching on and off.
