So, as one poster put it....

"PIMP MY XFIRE!!!"

http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=1955

I hope they dont add in music and crap that makes AIM a cancer. Oh well, I will probably still use it. And if it gets me any closer to Britney Spears...I am all for it!

LVS, your definition of 'hot' differs from mine.

i dunno exactly what Xfire is. just some sort of IM that links friends to what games their currently playing? i usually get people i game against on HL2M asking me if i have Xfire, and first few times, i kept telling them 'no, i have SLI'. /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

Ahh. Yes Xfire is a program that allows you to communicate with your game buddies, but it also shows what game they are playing, and if it is an online game you can join with them by clicking inside xchat. The other cool thing is that in most games you can chat with xchat while playing the game.

Now I am really surprised to see Viacom pick up xfire. Heck its a $102 million dollar deal, which is great for xfire's pocket books, but other than that there must be some big reason behind selling it. I don't know. I just hope mtv doesn't ruin xfire and try to compete with msn and yahoo with their own messenger program.
