Gamers Looking For Love on PlayStation Home

September 26, 2009Written by Anthony Severino


PlayStation Home is an avatar based service bringing gamers together to communicate in an online world. Like all online-based worlds, people get into all kinds of strange relationships. There have even been relationships resulting in “marriage” in many MMORPGs. Now people are looking for a date via PlayStation Home.

Apparently two D.C. area “college educated” men posted an personal ad on craigslist, where they wanted to “initially meet” women on PlayStation Home. I assume afterward they would attempt to get the women to come back to their personal ‘Home Space’. Check out the entire craiglist posting below:

We are 2 college educated men (23 and 25) living in the DC area. We both have good jobs (lobbyist, engineer). We are both tall (6’1”) and athletic. We are drug and disease free. Looking for potentially [long-term relationship] with college educated women around our same age, to meet initially via Playstation Home.
