Aura Play and Xfire reach online agreement

Aura Play and gaming platform Xfire announced that the two companies had reached agreement for Aura Play to act as the sales and sponsorship agents for Xfire in the UK and Europe. Xfire provides gamers with the services, allowing gamers to play alongside each other with one click, providing in-game messaging between friends, even when they are playing different games.

Traditionally it has been exceedingly difficult for online gamers to play alongside friends, as even when logging-on at the same time, it is more likely that they will be routed to different servers. Xfire's simplification of online gaming has generated over three million users worldwide.

Another feature of X-fire is Auto Patching. It recognises the games that users play and then automatically downloads patches for them ensuring that gamers have the very latest updated versions of their games.
