What is Playfire?
It's a social network where Xbox Live, PSN and PC gamers can track their stats and show them off on a cool profile, follow what their friends are playing, and talk about all the latest games.
Sounds cool. Are you guys legit?
Yes! We're a real company with real offices in London, UK. We've raised over $3m in investment from some successful entrepreneurs like the founders of Skype and EA. We're an official Xbox Community Developer and Playfire is used by over 450,000 gamers already.
Nice. So why do I need to log into my Xbox Live?
Clearly you're a popular person, as some of your friends created you a profile on Playfire so you'd join up!
Playfire only works if you have friends on it, so they invited you to the join the service.
You need to log in to verify you're actually the gamertag you say you are before you can claim the profile. Otherwise anybody could claim anyone else's profile.
What do you do with my login details?
We confirm you are the right person, and then throw them away! We don't store them ever. Not even your email address. Nothing is ever saved.
In fact, we never even see your password as it's fully encyrpted the whole time. So your details are completely secure.
Hmm. I'm still unsure.
We completely understand. It's healthy to have a certain level of skepticism online. To reassure you, though, Playfire is totally legit - we're a proper company with real offices in London, we're partnered with the great guys at Xbox through the Xbox Community Developer Program and know them in real life, and just want to make it easy for you to connect with your friends. Nothing is ever saved and the whole process is totally secure.

Battlefield 3 is better than Modern Warfare 3
That's not a question.
I have other real questions!
That's not a question either. However, I know what you're getting at. I'm going to repeat what I put at the end of the last questions:
