I know it’s been a while since I last posted here (sorry) but, this blog post got my attention and I had to share it. A new site has launched allowing girls to sign up for gaming sessions with guys. Sounds fair enough at first, even an idea I’d thought of for GirlGamers but, GameCrush, requires the guys to buy credits to game with you. Each session, or as GameCrush call it a “PlayDate”, lasts for 10 minutes and costs 400 credits, with an option of tipping 100 credits at the end. For 500 points/10 minute session plus tip, will cost ‘players’ $8.25. The money doesn’t all go to the site, with 60% going to the girls.
Currently, Modern Warfare 2, Gears of War 2, GTA IV and Halo 3 are supported on the Xbox 360, or you can also play flash games, such as checkers, pool etc. Would any of you girls sign up for the service, or give it a miss altogether. While it sounds nice to get paid for gaming, I can’t help but feel that, many of the girls may end up with an Xbox Live stalker and no one wants that.
