Paris Hilton hardcore gamer?

While visiting Gamebrink.com recently I noticed an article they had on Paris Hiltons attendance at the Microsoft Xbox 360 launch. Gamebrink recall seven more Paris-game related events:

1. She was at the XBOX 360 party and took one home with her
2. She was at the Gamecube party and took one home with her
3. She was at the Gameboy Micro party and took one home with her
4. She was at a Playstation 2 lounge party
5. She was featured in a press release for the XBOX
6. She was at a party for Soul Caliber 2
7. She was seen carrying a Playstation Portable
8. There is a Paris Hilton Nintendo DS at the Nintendo store in New York

Could it be that Paris Hilton is the most high profile grrl gamer in the world or is this a cunning marketing ploy to popularise gaming with fashion conscious young women?
