This site's members area is exactly the same as Playboy Plus (87.0). We do allow reviews and comments for clones of all types, but we highly recommend reviewing the source site to keep them in one location.
First, I'll note that I haven't joined this site. I just saw it listed as a new site on TBP and took a few minutes to tour around. I'm really only commenting on this place because for anyone over 30, Playboy still has a certain residual place in our "hearts" (insert body part of choice).
This is the site they should have done long ago. You get access to the PlayboyPlus sites that have been around for a while, plus at least some magazine/article content, and exclusive HD vids. It looks nice and professional. If they had done something like this years ago they might have had a chance at avoiding bankruptcy.
The problem I see is that they're too late. Without upgrading the quality and content of the PlayboyPlus sites, they're still behind the curve. Also, I don't see any emphasis on social media or fanboy participation beyond some chat sessions. Everything is still softcore and centered on whatever is left of the Playboy mystique. In other words, I don't see this effort resulting in them generating a new and younger audience. If I want softcore, Met-Art kicks their butt. If I want articles about the "sophisticated player" lifestyle I can find that at any number of other websites for free.
This platform also seems to undercut their other niches. It looks like you get access to Playboy radio, i-pad content and some Playboy tv stuff. I guess that makes sense from a consumer point of view but, again, when you're struggling financially with a shrinking brand does that end up shortening your longevity?
The only way I see them continuing on is if they take this website and really push it on other countries (unknown if this site is available in other languages).
Like I said in the title, I like what they've done but I'm not shelling out money for content that other sites do better and I don't care any more about the Playboy brand and keeping up with Hef and his fantasy lifestyle. I doubt many others do any more. If Playboy wants to exist beyond this decade, they need a paradigm shift. While this result is pretty to look at and has a bunch of content, I'd say this ain't it.
