PS3 players prefer gaming to bonking
'Not tonight, Josephine, I'm trying GTA.'
A survey has discovered that almost three-quarters of PlayStation 3 owners would happily swap a night of passion with their partner for time to try a newly released game.
The silly survey quizzed 1130 British blokes who own a PS3. If you’re wondering why Xbox 360 owners weren’t asked, it’s because the research was commissioned by a PS3-only price comparison website.
Of those respondents in relationships, 32 per cent said they would prefer to play videogames than sleep with their partner.
When asked why, many of them claimed their loved one was too "hard to please". Other guys simply said sex was “not as much fun as a night playing videogames”.
If given £50, some 41 per cent of respondents said they’d use the cash to buy a videogame. ®
@How many ... (AC 19:07)
That wasn't anonymous, that was jake ... One of the cats must have trodden on the trackball or mousepad again. I never post AC on purpose.
Their gf's need to tell them to:
"Harden the F@%k up!!"
I have the perfect relationship though; my wife is an early to bed early to rise kinda person, so I can give her a good shagging early in the evening, cuddling her until she falls asleep (if she isn't asleep by 8:30pm it's a miracle), and then go play the new game. In fact, this is exactly what I did this week (finally bought Assassins Creed for the PS3 on Monday - TBH I only play until around 1am as I've got a day job).
As for the survey respondents saying their gf's were too hard to please - maybe if they didn't play the games ALL night, they might actually have a libido and pleasuring their women might not be such a chore. Lazy gits, I bet they sit down to pee!
When are you luddites going to realise that gaming isn't the realm of spotty 13 year olds any more?
The game industry is rapidly catching up with the movie industry in terms of turnover. The time and money spent on the development of top end titles is staggering.
Gaming is enjoyed by folks of all ages and sexes from all walks of life. For example, a normal online session with my regulars includes a GP, several military types and a couple of code monkeys. Ages ranging from mid-20s to late 40s. I also know a 64 year old guy who is a keen gamer.
It's a pefectly vaild pastime, and IMO is far better than monging out in front of the pap that is served up by our pitiful TV service thesedays.
FWIW, I normal service the wifely needs then pop back downstairs to do my gaming.
...had to be researched? Kind of speaks for itself, donnit?
