Xfire to hold PS3 online tournaments

xfireSo. The latest buzz on the whole Xfire-PS3 deal is that Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom will be powered by Xfire when the game comes out for the said console, allowing players to use the “Friend Tracker” feature and level up their gaming experience.

Now, Xfire CEO Mike Cassidy has announced that they will be holding online tournaments for PS3 users when the console launches next month. Apparently, the goal is to bring all the online PC gaming privileges to the PS3 as well.

By holding online tournaments with the PS3, Cassidy says that it’ll be “…like playing a hole of golf with Tiger Woods. That’s what it’s like for gamers, they get to play for five or ten minutes with some of the best gamers in the world. We’ve had over 100,000 people do these online events.”

Well, can’t say no to playing golf with Tiger Woods now, can we? And also, Cassidy shares that there are currently six PS3 titles that they’ve had their hand in, and that they’re still currently in negotiation with other major developers to ‘fire up’ their titles. In addition to EA, Activision, VU Games, Ubisoft, 2K Games, and Lucas Arts, the company aims to get the top 20 PS3 game developers to integrate Xfire into their titles. Here’s to hoping they succeed in doing so, and finally let users make the most out of their gaming experience.
