Playfire: A Growing Network for Gamers

Sign in to queue


Playfire, a social network for gamers, lets you track your scores and rankings on services like Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PSP, and others while also engaging in discussions with fellow gamers, viewing game-related content like photos and videos, building your own virtual game collection, and more. Originally launched early last year, the company is now boasting 250,000 members with 100,000 added in October 2009 alone, reports TechCrunch. (The site itself says they have 245,000+ gamers, however). Playfire also recently took in additional funding which the company plans to use to expand their development team and accelerate their growth, notes the article.

Once logged in, users can track over 40,000 game titles, meet fellow gamers from around the world, join groups, take quizzes, and build a free website for their clan or guild.  

If you haven’t checked out Playfire before (or it’s been awhile), you may want to take a look. The company revamped their homepage earlier this month with a fresh design that loads faster and makes accessing the various parts of the website much easier than before.

Playfire is free to join – there are no “premium” features you have to pay for. It’s just your typical niche social networking site. Interested gamers can sign up here for an account.
