Dating site within an MMO

I love it: MMO in the business of matchmaking.

One of the main reasons why games don’t turn into huge multi-billion dollar franchises is that they can’t make money off of offline items and services. If they could, they could get a piece of any transaction, the way that eBay and Google do.

This is one interesting step in that direction, where a game becomes a competitor to dating services. What’s next? An eBay booth in Second Life? :)

PS. Get new updates/analysis on tech and startups

I write a high-quality, weekly newsletter covering what's happening in Silicon Valley, focused on startups, marketing, and mobile.
