A new service launches tomorrow, called GameCrush, where men can pay money to play over Xbox Live with an "attractive girl" (Warning: NSFW)
Yes, this is real.
Interested, lonely men (or cashed up pranksters) can sign up to the site, and once there, choose from two options: play a simple Flash game (checkers, etc) against a "PlayDate", where you get face-to-face time with one of these "attractive girls" over a webcam, or join them for a bit of multiplayer over Xbox Live.
A single game of either will cost you $8.25, with Xbox Live matches running for 10 minutes, and Flash games for 6.
Girls somehow interested in this should know there's money to be made, with 60% of the proceeds from a match going to the "PlayDate", who at the conclusion of a game can be rated by the user on her "hotness, gaming skill, and flirtiness".
GameCrush is restricted to those 18 years old and over, and players can select one of two kinds of match/date. I'll let the site's FAQ explain. "We have created two broad categories, "Flirty" and "Dirty" to help the PlayDate define and match her mood of gaming interaction and experience with those of the players. You can choose either option or both depending on how you feel!"
There are already 1200 "PlayDates" registered on the site, some of whom are serious about the whole thing, others less so, while others were born in former Communist states, caught whiff of the scent of internet money and stuck out their tits accordingly.
It's so hard trying to decide whether this is the best thing we've ever seen, or the worst. Might need to flip a coin.
There are four Xbox 360 games supported so far, those being Halo 3, GTAIV, Modern Warfare 2 and Gears of War 2. If this somehow takes off, you can expect more platforms, as well as MMO titles, to be supported.
To your left, you'll find a selection of some of the ladies (well, mostly ladies) who will be sitting by their computers tomorrow, waiting just for you. Big boy. (WARNING: Some of it's a little NSFW).
BRENDA - "Hmmm lets see about me...I'm 31, single, no kids, and a great career. I love video games, but I mostly play Wii and PS2. I love to bike ride, go out dancing, and I absolutely LOVE to cook. I also enjoy movies, concerts, plays, and comedy shows. Although I'm 31, I'm still a party girl and I love to have a great time out being wild and crazy. I'm also laid back, fun loving, and very freaky! I love to flirt and meet new people so make sure you say hi!!!!"
INKED - "I love gaming co-op! There are NOT enough co op games :( I am really into zombie games and enjoy playing Left 4 Dead 1 & 2!

HOTSHOT - "I love Xbox Live! To be quite honest, I am an online junkie. I barely even consider a game if it doesn't let me duke it out over the Internet with my friends. I have even broken up with boys who did not know how to handle a controller let alone a Scorpion MBT! Besides gaming I love my cat Freskels - and I am not kidding - he even has a few moves of his own on the battlefield (ok, maybe with a little help!)"
MIDMOWHISKEYGIRL - "Well I kick A$$, HAH! You cant beat me at Medal of Honor...Halo...or Texas Hold em' GARUNTEED"
