PS3 players prefer gaming to bonking

'Not tonight, Josephine, I'm trying GTA.'

SANS - Survey on application security programs

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. ®
