The company’s web site was down for the past couple of days with a note that said it was trying to find more server capacity because of overwhelming demand for its service. The site claimed that more than 10,000 people tried to sign on in the first five minutes the site was open.
The service is set up so that a 10-minute “play date” session with a sexy model costs $6.60. You can play on Xbox Live and chat via video cam if you want. The service got considerable coverage in the press last week, as it fulfilled the age-old stereotype that gamers are dudes who can’t get dates.
