[I'm writing this on Wednesday night and scheduling it to post when the embargo lifts at 9 am tomorrow morning. So I might get some of the launch details wrong!]
I had a chance to get a sneak peak at Raptr’s new website/service. We all know Raptr as a cross-game chat client that also does game tracking, but starting today Raptr also wants to provide you with a kind of personalized gaming news feed.
It’s a little bit like Digg back before Digg sucked, and only for video games. You can share links of the stuff you find interesting, and can up or down vote items other people have shared.
Honestly I’m still figuring out everything the new site can do (I only got in a day ago) and they’re still adding features, but I think it’s got potential. In particular I’m still looking for a feed of things my friends (and only my friends) have shared. If I can’t find it I’ll definitely submit feedback for it.
I’m accessing it at http://beta.raptr.com and I’m assuming that’ll be the URL when it goes into open beta tomorrow, too. If not I’ll try to get back and fix this link!
Now that it’s live, it’s just plain old http://raptr.com
Sorry for such a vague post; I really want to help get the word out, but I’ll be at work when the embargo lifts so won’t be able to do a proper post at that time!
