Voyeur Dorm for Geeks: S3 Chrome Gaming House

S3 has put a bunch of girl gamers in a “gaming house,” where they’ll blog in between Quake 4 tournaments.

However, so far they haven’t bothered actually equipping the gaming house with new PCs, so one girl was forced to go to a local Cybercafe to game. Auspicious start, that.

Of course, it gave her an excuse to blog about how excited she was that she was going to get a new system with an S3 Chrome card, which from what I’ve seen is akin to someone on these forums getting all excited about a GeForce 6600 (non-GT).

Marketing has grown markedly more sophisticated over the years. Not sure how effective they are, but one thing’s for sure-- they’re definitely not your father’s oldsmobile… ads.

Also that website friggin sucks.
