Viacom to Buy Xfire for $102M

While I'm no big fan of MTV Philippines' mindless gaming coverage, their mother company is certainly clued in on the subject.

That's why, as a fan of intergame chat and documentation tool Xfire, I'm delighted to hear Viacom will acquire Xfire for $102M.

Philippine game publishers should note this emerging global gaming standard. If you're going to publish a localized version of an Xfire-supported game, make sure the installation directory and primary executable filename match those of the international version. These simple considerations will ensure seamless compatibility with Xfire.
