Xfire Makes Company History by Signing 17 Millionth Registered User

Unique Features, Engaging Games, Relevant Tools Increase User Acquisition to All-Time High

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) -  Xfire announces today that it signed its 17 millionth registered user, growing more than 300,000 new users since its acquisition by Titan Gaming in early August of this year.

"We attribute the rapid growth to Xfire's continued support for today's hottest new games, as well as hundreds of web and free games," says CEO of the new Xfire, John Maffei. "In addition to supporting games people really want to play, we also provide engaging in-game services, like screen shots, video recording and live streaming within the Xfire community."

Additional Xfire Usership Information:

  • 6.5 million monthly active users
  • Subscribers in nearly 220 countries around the world
  • High subscription rates in the US, Germany and UK, with its most rapid growth in Europe

Among other features, Xfire's ability to track game play hours and quickly launch web games broadly expands its services to the casual gaming market. Currently, the most popular games on Xfire continue to be World of Warcraft and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Xfire recently expanded its already impressive roster to include StarCraft II and Mafia II, and also added casual games like Zynga Poker.

"We're very excited to see the enormously positive reaction of our community to our new lineup of supported games, including the massively popular StarCraft II, which has seen tens of thousands of new players on Xfire, who play it for more than 2 million minutes per day over our system -- making it our sixth most popular game," says Mark Donovan, Director of Monetization.

Acquired by Titan Gaming in August, Xfire has broadened its offerings to include Titan Gaming's skill-gaming platform. Xfire, via Titan Gaming's technology, offers websites, portals, game developers, and publishing companies an easy plug-and-play solution for skill-based gaming and website monetization via a robust API. Developers, game publishers and content sites interested in utilizing the new Xfire platform to add skill-based matching, tournaments, points and cash competition capabilities to their site or games can visit to learn more.
