X-fire bought by Viacom (MTV Networks)

X-fire bought by Viacom (MTV Networks)

Post by nick on Tue Aug 03, 2010 4:47 am

Found this on another gaming forum, obviously effects us as we use x-fire too.


We are very pleased to announce that Xfire has entered into an agreement to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of MTV Networks.

What does the acquisition mean to you? It means that Xfire is now backed
by one of the world's leading creators of programming and content
across all media. It means that Xfire will continue to grow and enhance
your gaming experience. Xfire was created by gamers, for gamers. We will
always remain committed to improving gaming with your friends. MTV
Networks shares this vision with us, and they will help us to continue
building Xfire into a larger and more exciting community, one passionate
gamer at a time.

--- The Xfire Team

OK, that's the official message. I’d like to share a few additional thoughts with you.

We started Xfire about 2 1/2 years ago, based on the desire to play
games with friends and the idea that we could detect some game and
network information using cool programming tricks. We convinced the
founders of Ultimate Arena to let us build Xfire, and since then we've
built a fantastic team full of many people who have all contributed to
our success.

We never had money or desire to advertise Xfire. We figured that if we
build a good enough program then everyone would want to share it with
their friends. Four million registrations later, I think we've been
proven correct.

Xfire is unique in many ways, but one in particular is how we dedicate
our work to you--our users. We spend an enormous amount of time fixing
every bug that we can find, whether it's a capitalization problem or
something that only occurs on one or two machines out there. We also
incorporate your suggestions every single release. I like to think that
we're one of the most responsive development teams in the world.
Hopefully you agree.

Our frequent releases are also pretty amazing. We've done a new release
every 2 or 3 weeks since the very first release of Xfire. That has added
up to countless late nights full of plenty of kooky bets, made-up games
in the hallways, and other insanity. It's also been a great opportunity
to tell you what we're working on through our release notes, and to
hopefully show you what we're made of. Even though we're being acquired
by MTV Networks, that's not going to change. We're the same people we
have always been, building Xfire in the same way we always have.

Obviously, we're all very excited about being acquired by MTV Networks.
It validates the success that we've already had. It also validates the
methods by which we've had that success--building a great product,
listening to our users, and continually improving the product based on
feedback. They are very impressed by what we've accomplished so far, and
they want us to continue to build our wonderful community.

So... after all that we've been through, I think we've proven that Xfire
cannot be stopped. Thanks so much for your support so far, and please
continue to let us know what you want and expect out of us. We will

Game on!

--- Chris Kirmse
VP Engineering, Xfire

PS We'll be a little extra active on the forums today to help answer your questions as much as we can.

My heart sinks at this news, pretty soon it'll be a case of 'BLERGH WATCH THIS 3 MIN VIDEO BEFORE YOU CAN CHAT TO A FRIEND' or they'll randomly throw up adverts during your game session.

If it is the case that we have to watch a vid ( like on youtube ) to continue, reactions will be not so "succes building".

It would be "Game over" instead of Game on.

Nice Sig by the way B@T

Wow, I dunno if it will be a good new but for now, we can't know .

I just hope all your predictions are wrong but if I do make a prediction too, I'm on the Nick's side, we will see.

Btw,keep your spirits high while, just to bring us luck
