Gamers Pay To Play With Girls

taucross writes "A new site allows lonely Xbox 360 gamers to pay a prescribed fee for a few minutes of game time with one of the 'PlayDates', a girl who is paid to play video games. Gamers can choose to have a 'flirty' or 'dirty' experience with one of the PlayDates. Is this what we meant when we said we wanted 'adult gaming'?"

May I be the first to say... (5, Insightful)

jawtheshark (198669) | more than 4 years ago | (#31585800)

May I be the first to say... WTF?!?

No seriously? WTF?!?

What's the point? It just exploits the hope of those guys to get a real date, without the actual hope of getting a real one.. Wait, scratch that... It will probably be hugely popular... *sigh*.

Do the girls get paid to do it, just like camgirls? Ah, yes, it's right there in the article... Well, guess there is more dignity in doing that than undressing yourself before a cam. Perhaps they can combine it and make even more money: for each time you frag her, she has to remove one piece of clothing.... /ME runs to patent the idea ;-)

SpeedyDX (1014595) | more than 4 years ago | (#31585958)

Actually this is the perfect market segment for such a "dating" service, if you can call it that. Other dating services target those who don't have time to indulge in the social/leisure scene (business people, etc.), and this one targets those who don't WANT to indulge in the social scene. Instead of looking up profiles for common interests, you already know that the PlayDate you're matched up with will have at least one major common interest (gaming).

I think it's an interesting (although ridiculously expensive) idea. I have no idea if a guy in that position would pay over $7 a pop just to game with a girl, but it does have some potential. Then again, dating sites like eHarmony charge anywhere from $20-$60/month. Love is a lucrative business.

This sounds more like a 'nerd' version of an escort service. Just far lamer - you don't even get points for being seen around town with a hot chick.

Ya this seems pretty damned sad though the great grandparents strip-gaming thing sounds absolutely awesome for parties.

Every time you get fragged you have to take an item of clothing off.

For best effect a game with a moderate kill rate would be best and with a few seconds respawn time so you have time to get the clothing off.

combine with some kind of drinking game and you'd be on to a winner- model it on alcoholic chess
http://miscellanea.wellingtongrey.net/2008/01/06/alcoholic-chess/ [wellingtongrey.net]
where say every time you get 2 kills in a row you have to take a drink.

Helios1182 (629010) | more than 4 years ago | (#31586142)

I think the online dating sites now cater not just to those that are "too busy" for a social scene. They are filled with people who are sick of the regular social scene (e.g., bars) for meeting people. There are people from all professions, faiths, and interests on them at this point.

This new service seems like it will be less rewarding and more expensive than regular dating sites.

Re:May I be the first to say... (2, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31586250)

This isn't a "dating" service. These girls are paid to play. They may have an interest in gaming, but they don't have any interest in the people who call. They're just there for the money.

Moraelin (679338) | more than 4 years ago | (#31585986)

You know, it kinda reminds me of the joke about the programmer who finds a talking frog. The frog says, "Please, if you kiss me I'll turn back into a beautiful princess and I'll be your girlfriend and do whatever you wish." The programmer thinks for a bit, puts the frog in the pocket and says, "You know, I don't think I have the time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is way cool."

Kinda the same reaction I'm getting here. I can't say I much care about the "date" part, or even if it's a girl or a guy, but if they're even marginally good at Star Trek Online, I could have some use fir someone to watch my back and have a chat with. Especially if they have a Science Ship, but I'm not fussy. A Cruiser is good too. Some of those battleships can hurt a lot if you're in a lone Escort, lemme tell ya ;)

Re:actually, let me be the nerdiest... (5, Funny)

Sorta like that other joke:

A nerd comes running up to his friend and says:
"You'll never believe what happened to me yesterday. I was walking around when all the sudden this beautiful girl comes up to me riding this wicked bike. She throws down the bike, takes off all her clothes, and says 'Take whatever you want.'"
"So I took the bike."
His friend responds "Good choice. The clothes would have never fit you."

Then there'd be no difference to the majority of the other online "dating" scams. It's just too tempting to pay women, who pretend to be real prospective partners, in order to keep customers from achieving their goal. Imagine if male customers would actually find somebody. That cannot be good for business!

If you pay for a dating service as a male, you know you will get screwed. Unfortunately only by the hairy guys taking your money and not the fair lady you were hoping for ;)

Rental Sisters and Hikki Therapy (2, Interesting)

Guppy (12314) | more than 4 years ago | (#31586062)

Hopefully they wont end up being Hikikomoris

I was thinking the same thing, as an extension of the "rental sisters" [nytimes.com] that are sometimes used for hikki therapy as well. Perhaps this might not be such a bad idea.
The game serves as a focus for parallel play, allowing a poorly socialized male to be distracted long enough to become acclimated to the female's companionship before they realize it. I've seen the same sort of gradual opening up at anime clubs and D&D sessions, but this might work in situations where someone's too far withdrawn even for that.

Double LOL at the company itself:

The company explained that in a bar you're basically buying the opportunity to chat a girl up, and GameCrush is hoping players will look at their service the same way.

Um, usually the point of chatting up a girl is to go home with her at some point. How does that happen over the internet? Especially with girls who signed up specifically to be "chatted up"?

But who knows. Maybe this is a "less space than a nomad" product.

Not to defend this scheme in any way but I would guess the mechanism will be that one signs up via a website to pay for the service (somehow I can't see MS letting people spend Microsoft points on this), so I would assume that it's no worse than an age restricted web site on that front and you'll need to have a credit card to get access anyway.

This reminds me of a cleaning service that I heard of this weekend which, for an extra $20/hr, will work topless. This is the sugar-as-first-ingredient social experience. It seems great at the time, but eventually it will leave you lacking in ways that are hard to imagine. Surrounding yourself with ego-stroking houris isn't going to help you out in the relationships that really matter, is it?

Pretty much applies to any paid-for interaction with the opposite sex. Strip clubs are a classic example. Get your ego stroked, made to feel like everything you say is of vast interest to the stunning woman you're talking to. Go home on cloud 9, wake up feeling depressed and slightly dirty.

But I'm just guessing, ya know. No personal experience to back it up. Honest *cough*

9 bucks for one game? You figure that's what 10 minutes? 54 bucks an hour, 216 bucks for four hours(average raid time) That's 5,184 bucks for a four hour raid with 24 ladies. I could absolutely see that happening haha.

Seriously!? (2, Insightful)

I'd love to find a girl that likes to play video games, and would enjoy playing them with me. Hell, I'm even inclined to give up my bachelor lifestyle for such a rare gem... But pay $9 for 10 minutes of playing a game with her over the net? I really, really don't think so.

Now, if that was the prelude to getting an actual date with her, I could see it. (In other words, you have to prove you aren't a complete asshole while playing games.)

I wish to Christ this was a joke (2, Funny)

...but it's not.

Shame on you, CmdrTaco, for posting this. Shame on the organisation behind it for creating it. And every one of you assholes who immediately started joking about it, you disgust me.

March in protest over this! (1)

Dressed as zombies, of course. That will help gamers' reputations with the ladies.

Where do I sign up? (3, Interesting)

Wow, what a job! I get paid to play games and all I have to do is pretend to be a girl to some guys that I will never have to meet in real life.

I'm confused. (1)

I could blame this on my quick read of the article but... Are the girls employees of the game or just other gamers. The reason I ask is because if they are employees then its nothing like buying a girl a drink at a bar after all not matter how many credits you give her she's still not going to go home with you after the game or even give you her number. Second, are they using vent? After all, I'm a guy and I could supply a picture of a girl and pretend to be one one but put me in vent with out a voice modifier and well my pretense is discovered. And finally - really, yuk this is just wrong on so many levels.
