Who the heck uses Raptr and Xfire?

Post by TheHidden01 on Fri Feb 07, 2014 4:28 pm



Every month or so, we hear from Raptr and Xfire publicists that such-and-such a game is now ranked number one on that platform and 80 bajillion people total are gaming while logged into said tracking service. And at least once a week, commenters will inform us that one MMO or another is pure fail because its Raptr numbers have trailed off, which is usually followed up with a "shut up; no one uses Raptr" or something similar.

I'm not saying social media is useless; I know it's a factor in predicting market penetration and even Kickstarter success. But I do have to wonder: Who the heck actually does use Raptr and Xfire? Do you? Do you know anyone who does? Is this a thing MMO players avoid because they can already spam their achievements inside games or using Twitter plugins? Do you use them to tell you how much you really play games? How useful do you think these platforms' data are in discussions about MMO numbers?

I use both, mainly to track my gaming habits out of curiosity. Xfire is getting shitter and shitter though largely because it doesn't update, Raptr is vastly superior.

Xfire was big for MxO players, I had something like 300 friends at one time on it, but now it's dwindled, once I moved on from Xfire, I never used it again really even though it's always open.
