Xfire to work independently again

Xfire, which has a social service used by 19 million gamers, has raised $4 million from Intel Capital and unnamed investors. As a result of the capital injection, Xfire is no longer tied to Titan Gaming, the company that acquired them from Viacom a little over a year ago.

Both Xfire and Titan will operate independently from one another.

In addition to the spin-off and funding news, Xfire has also announced a trio of new execs joining its leadership team; Titan Gaming co-founder Mark Donovan will serve as President, Juston Brommel as CMO and Autumn Radtke as Director of Business Development.

Xfire provides a social communication platform targeted specifically at gamers, with features like group text and voice chats and user-generated content sharing tools such as screenshots, videos and live game broadcasts.

Lets not forget that all things like overlay in-games and browsing in-games started thanks to Xfire way before Steam.

    @hunshiki – well, I wasn’t able to capture with dxtory video with good quality and also it puts watermark inside the video :)

    it costs 34€ while fraps costs 27€, so I guess that if I want to test some more, I will give xfire a try, otherwise will skip or wait til good fraps deal :)

    @Slay: Best capture application is Dxtory so far, at least for me. You should give it a try. (It lets me capture with the same speed I play. No degrade in FPS, whatsoever.)

    About the news: I thought XFire will release a new client, a design, or something like that after the Intel fund. They did nothing, except publishing few “game updates”. However, I still can’t play Battlefield 3 with it. If XFire is running, I can’t even launch my game.
