Raptr Social Gaming Network

Raptr is social networking for gamers.
There are huge communities of gamers on Xbox Live, PSN, and other places... but they are in separate walled gardens. The social network Raptr aims to connect all of these different gaming communities, and to that end they've recently added a personalized news feed for gamers. It's a nice way to stay in touch with what's happening in the games you're interested in, without hunting down the news yourself.

Of course, you can share all of your achievements, but this is also a place where you can share anything that interests you. You can chat with your friends across gaming platforms, and mix and match your gaming buddies. It's perfect for gamers who are into more than one type of gaming. You play Xbox and PC Games? Raptr helps you cross the streams.

I'm sure it will also become a prime place for game marketers to connect with their customers. As yet, that opportunity is undeveloped, but I'm sure they'll get around to it. Gamers can enjoy the site for what it does today; marketers can look forward to what it will do tomorrow.
