    The girls get paid to game date, isnt that another way of saying virtual escort service?

    Edit:
    It just popped into my head, that it might be acutally better value to hire a real escort to play video games with if a person was so inclined.

    I bet there are guys pretending to be girls to get paid to play their favorite games.

    I think it's a bit closer to online game prostitution than an "escort"..

    This is too funny. It's basically nothing more than a glorified pimping service.

    I also fear the gender ratio may fall on the unfavourable side for the "Players".

    "boys are Players, girls are PlayDates. The players buy credits which can be spent on time playing with the girls, while the ladies are paid to play with the boys."

    Oh well that's fair then...:blah:

    Can I pimp out my girlfriend in this? I could make money with her on the wireless headset and me playing Xbox!

    I can't help but think "Player" is a misnomer in this situation.

    but seriously, just learn how to talk to girls, it's not hard (no pun intended), they might even like you! :p

    Paying to hear an effeminate voice cast aspersions on your lineage while handing your arse to you while playing the hexbox? So what's the difference between this and the abuse you get free from pre-adolescents via the comms system anyway?

    This is possibly the funniest thing I have seen in the news this year so far. I especially liked the lines:

    ''There are currently supposed to be around 1,200 PlayDate profiles available on the site, but we haven't been able to confirm that because the site has been overloaded with traffic.''

    I think I am going to sign up using a picture of my mrs.

    WoW is a platform now?

    Are gamers stooping that low? I do a fair amount of gaming and am in a perfectly happy relationship with a non-gaming girl.

    Nice choice of picture though...

    you know for a moment i thought this was a proper sating site and was aimed at people who played games, and i thought sweet I can use the net to meet girl gamers! That's kinda half decent! but then realised that it's paying to play games with people. And now I feel more like +1 to all the above posts....

    This isn't really dating is it? It's more like sex lines for gaming.
