Raptr to stop tracking console data, become PC-only service

Games-centric tracking and social network Raptr has ditched console support.

Until now Raptr has kept track of its members game time across Xbox, PlayStation and PC but in the future it will only track PC activity.

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,” a company update said. As Raptr grew, we realized there was a big demand for features that improved the PC gaming experience, such as game optimisations, 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. Your console-related information is still available on Xbox Live and PSN, and for those looking for a unified tracking solution, we recommend Playfire.”
