is a performance testing tool capable of emulating a large number of MMO players, designed for developers and publishers to perform stress tests for complex online games.
The company says a limitless number of users can be loaded into the testing tool, geared at creating more efficient performance testing as compared with open betas.
Testronic CEO Neil Goodall commented, "Historically MMOG has proved one of the most challenging areas in which to deliver world-class quality assurance. The number of users and the requirement to accurately measure performance under load, has made this a complex area for game developers."
He added, "Venus Blue has real benefits for our customers. It not only offers the most intensive and thorough testing service available for online games, but also provides major cost savings as very little human participation is required. We are delighted to have signed this agreement which reflects our strategy to become market leaders in the provision of MMOG testing worldwide.”
