Pay to play with the ladies over on GameCrush

Thursday, 25th March 2010 14:21 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Are you single, lonely, and a bit socially inept? Are you tired of searching through XBL accounts for that special someone to throw down with in Modern Warfare? Does your soul ache for the online company of someone with double X chromosomes?

Well, get out your wallet then, because a new social service has launched called GameCrush where you can actually pay to play online games with the ladies.

On GameCrush, girls are called PlayDates and the fellas Playas Players. The guys pay to play and gals get paid to play.

No joke.

Sign-up is free, but you must purchase credits to keep going. For $8.25 you get 500 credits, which is enough for one game (400 credits) and a 100 credit tip at the end. An Xbox Live game will last 10 minutes, while a casual Flash game over on the GameCrush site will get you six minutes of video face time with your PaidDate PlayDate.

Guys can browse 1,200 PlayDate profiles, view photos, and even chat with girls for free. Find a gal to your liking,  send her a game invite, and should she accept – you get six to ten minutes of one-on-one gaming.

So far, the service only supports Xbox 360, but there are plans to add PS3, Wii, and World of Warcraft support soon.

Of course, you must be 18 or over to create a GameCrush account and you can set your mood to either “flirty” or “dirty.”

We could go on, but we’re getting a bit confused here. On one hand we’re wondering how much these gals get paid to play because we’re a bit strapped for cash at the moment. On the other hand, we’re getting nauseous over the thought.

Honestly, it’s rather hilarious. Check it out for yourself through here.

Er um, thanks, IGN.

    Is there a special pre-news selection procces at VG247 HQ?

    “Does this news involve boobies?”

    “Uh, I’ll check…..yes, yes it does.”

    “Better give it to Steph then, makes sure it a nice pic though.”

    “Are you single, lonely, and a bit socially inept?”

    Then encouraging these people to stay indoors with a digital prostitute isn’t exactly helping the situation

    So, each game will devolve into a ‘Show us your tits’ bother fest.
    If ever there was a good use for the PSEye, this is it.

    Shame there’s no porno version.

    @4 :-D

    @6 – No. I don’t work there. Although the thought of getting paid to game is tempting, the moment some guy asked to see something other than my mad skillz I would verbally destroy his soul and quit.

    @7 – You have to sign-up to even look, so I am sure most of those members are just there out of morbid curiosity. *wink*

    @ 17 :-D Thanks!

    #18 5 years ago

    Do they lose on purpose, or are they good enough to ‘pwn’ you?

    I mean, what happens if you end up paying to play with some bimbo who doesn’t know her right thumbstick from her left trigger?

    @Droid I so agree with you there some women are such attention whores. A group a guys will be break dancing and hip hop dance. Then those girls will just step right in the middle of our dance route-teen.

    child: hey dad how’d you meet mom
    Dad: I meet her while playing games son.

    child: what kind of game dad
    Dad: It was Halo 3 son, only took $60,000 before your mom would give me a real date.

    child: huh? $60,000?
    Dad: Yea son, back then I was such a loser I never could get any woman to date me…then I found this game dating site where you pay girls to play video games with you for real money.

    child: (stunned)……..
    Dad: ….Uhhh ummm, yea I figured hey I love video games so much and I wanted a girlfriend too I’d give it a try. Well one day I got lucky and the girl I had been gamer dating with decided she wanted me to take her out to nice fancy expensive restaurants, buy her nice clothes, and jewelry after I dropped an insane amount of money on her by just paying for video game dates.

    child: (sick to his stomach)
    Dad: Any way son the point of the story is if I had never signed up to GameCrush and spent a total of $ 470,000 you would never have been born Michael O’Connor Jr.

    child: (smacks his dad for being the ultimate loser)

    THE END :D

    The joke would have been infinitely funnier were it not for the fact that I have been in a steady relationship with a very beautiful woman, for the past seven months.

    Troll harder.

  29. Mauller

    Yes, but the joke was in regards to your birth, not your current relationship. I must admit, I found it funny.

    Actually Mauller, if your read it correctly, it’s in regard to a future son.

    I guess it was bound to happen to the socially inept people just not having the gall to go outside and talk to women.

    They are putting pussy on a pedestal.

    #35 5 years ago
  36. theevilaires

    Yes they are putting pussy on a pedestal which is the worst thing mankind can ever do because then we put the power into the women hands and we all know women aren’t capable of running this world like men.

    It would be total chaos.
    That’s why society is mainly dominated by men.

    O’Connor stop with the bullshit, no one believes you about your 7 month (STEADY) relationship. :D We want to see proof…right people. SHOW PROOF! SHOW PROOF! SHOW PROOF!

    @35 I choked a little bit on that one.

    Seriously, though, women get all the easy ways to money; With the exception of China, everyone wants you and (most) would pay just for the company.

    Wish my hangers could bring me some easy money.

    I misread this at first, i thought it was nothing more then a dating site. But turns out its pretty much a real version of that fake story that made news where a kid paid a pair of prostitues to play Halo 3 with him.

    “On one hand WE’RE wondering how much these gals get paid to play because WE’RE a bit strapped for cash at the moment.”

    A job like this is right up Pat and Johnny’s alley i bet. :D

    for fark sake!

    Now every FARKING gamer girls who play on PC, Xbawks Live and PSN will start moving onto this bullsh*!

    And I’m sure girl gamers will definitely go because they are tired of abusive and verbal abuse online, especially the trash Xbawks Live full of morons, racist and kids.
