Raptr is a well known social-networking website and instant messenger which is aimed at video-game players. It allows players to keep their friends updated with unlocked achievements and trophies and also let their friends know which games they are playing. However, a rebooted Raptr opted to drop console support to focus exclusively on being a communications platform for PC gamers. Here’s Raptr’s official statement:
When Raptr started out, we offered Steam and XBL achievements and PSN trophy tracking, PC/Xbox 360 gameplay tracking, plus unified buddy lists and chat. As Raptr grew, we realized there was a big demand for features that improved the PC gaming experience, such as game optimizations, easy Twitch streaming, and lightweight video capture.
But on the console side, you may have noticed some features stopped updating, as changes to Xbox Live and PSN would repeatedly break our system.
We believe our mission is to make PC gaming fun and effortless, and therefore we’ve decided to focus our resources on PC gaming exclusively. We will retire all remaining console support in the near future. For additional details, see our FAQ.
Your console-related information is still available on Xbox Live and PSN, and for those looking for a unified tracking solution, we recommend Playfire.
We’d like to thank console gamers for using Raptr, and we hope you’ll check out our PC gaming features and stick around!
