 "Playboy-caliber women."   
 
So the game will be full of platinum blonde sex-dolls whose every inch was crafted by a lonely single man with mother-issues and Photoshopped to a high blur? Thanks, but if I want titillation I'll just rewatch that scene in Final Fantasy VII where Tifa's in the shower. There's a curtain in front of her, but if you squint and tilt your head just right...it's still more interesting than this "game" from Playboy.

That looks and sounds awful.

This seems destined for failure and ridicule. ::Rubs hands together excitedly::

NOW if this was a Project Natal game....I'm all in!   Any ladies up for multiplayer?

Yeah... I don't think so, Jim.

I have a feeling this will have far less boobs than the playboy name would lead you to believe. That trailer was not much in the way of sex appeal. Looks pretty lame graphically as well. Then again MMO's aren't exactly the best looking thing anyway, cause you need that power for networking, but still.

There is no sex in playboy, just a lot of nipples and the occasional vagina. 
 
Sorry to disappoint.

They should license Hot Coffee, and turn it into a full retail game. With articles, of course.

If it is a browser based game, I'll consider giving it a spin. Looks pretty terrible though.  
 
I also like how that getaway van doesn't take any damage.

Something about it reminds me of the Sims... not interested

I hear the Photoshop "artists" from the magazine will be doing the game graphics to keep that FAKE over-Photoshopped look consistent between the two.

The video doesn't look like its actual game play...  More like a animation thats suppose to look like a video game.  What ever happened to keeping it simple and just making some rhythm sex games?  Doing GTA seems like to big of a project for them.

@Seedofpower: Why do you try to ruin my day.
#115 Posted by Gerhabio (1977 posts) -

WOW,
Playboy, thank you for making it even harder to get rid of the loser/sleazehole gamer stereotype, for making gaming more inaccessible for self-respecting women and for unwittingly leading a parade of hole-filling-crazed anti-feminists into our already objectification-riddled world.
My only consolation is that the low quality of your video games, if not our sense of decency and our love and respect for the women in our lives, will surely bring you down in these misguided endeavors.

I don't understand why people sink so much money and time into projects like this that EVERYONE knows is stupid and full of fail. I mean, who are the jackasses saying "no, this will totally be a hit!" and green lighting the funding?

This looks so unbelievable bad...

No. Just no.

Hyuck Hyuck Hyuck!! They'll try anything for money, huh?

Knock yourself out. HAHAHAHAHA

i think that trailer gave me cancer

It's not doubt been mentioned already, but why do I get the feeling this game is going to succeed where APB failed?

#123 Posted by VergilMayCry (17 posts) -

just goes to show that people are willing to make anything as long as there's a market for it. it'll probably flop.

#124 Posted by DryvBy (249 posts) -

This is going to be pretty bad. Usually a CGI representation of a game is suppose to throw you through a hoop, but this one looks like some PS2/Xbox/Cube game. Yuck.

Playboy hasn't been a valid source or porn or even fap worthy swag in a long long time...I just wanted to post that.
as for the game, the past what? 1 game playboy created sucked, I don't expect more this time.

#126 Posted by PenguinDust (12483 posts) -

With the expansion of the internet granting access to all sorts of nudity for every particular taste, Playboy has become irrelevant in the 21st century.  I see this as an attempt to work their way back into the mindset of young males, but I doubt it will have any lasting effect.  This crappy GTA/Saints Row clone isn't going to be anything anyone plays for long.  If Playboy wants to seriously make games, then they need to take an original approach and not just reskin other popular franchises with their label.   They did that with The Sims and it failed and now they are doing it again with the open world GTA style genre.  I believe a spy game would be a better pick.  The "playboy" life style is similar to that of the suave super-spy life style from James Bond and even Austin Powers and it would offer a better opportunity for lots of hot polygonal girls to scamper about.

" But it hasn't been behind the wheel of a videogame just yet." 

 Actually there was a PC Playboy Game with a "The Sims" look around 2005.....
 
It was called "Playboy: The Mansion"

I came for the tits and then I came on the tits.

So, Charlies Angels gone bad meets a bad replica of the A-team van, really playboy? Really?
#130 Posted by chinkpak (32 posts) -

This looks awful! Like a slightly updated version of GTAIII...or a downgrade 0_o

#131 Posted by lowestformofwit (194 posts) -

It's sad that so many good studios have closed and that someone like Playboy  comes along and thinks they can make games.  em, no thanks.

Points lost for lack of El-P mention.

#134 Posted by Evercaptor (391 posts) -

I kinda got interested in the playboy game for a minute there, but i really don't like MMOs. ah well.
Here's hoping they get into the console game business, it might be interesting if they made some games with a narative focus. it'd be funny if they subverted everyone's expectations.
