London, 9th December 2013 – Green Man Gaming ( http://www.greenmangaming.com), the world’s fastest growing social commerce platform for core gamers, is happy to announce that today it launched the Xbox One tracking BETA on its Playfire ( https://www.playfire.com/) service; the social network where gamers can track their in-game achievements.

With over 150 million systems sold globally since launch, the Xbox One’s user base has spent over 50 million hours in games and entertainment, and has achieved over 415 million Gamerscore Points. From today, Xbox One gamers can use Playfire to not only track their Gamerscore and achievements, but to check out what the most popular Xbox One titles are, see what their friends and the Playfire community are playing, and get buzzing about the latest titles.

“We're pleased that Playfire is one of the first services to support Xbox One game tracking and deliver this so quickly to our hungry community" said Paul Sulyok, CEO of Green Man Gaming and Playfire. "Having a dedicated development team working hard on building a new future for Playfire means we can respond to new platform requirements and changes in a very agile way."

The Playfire community has already logged 1.5 billion achievements and trophies which is sure to rapidly swell as next-gen gamers are welcomed to the service.

Green Man Gaming extended the consumer offer further, launching online retail sales of PC-DVD, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 games as well as current and next-gen consoles and peripherals, offering even more choice to the gaming market.

In July 2012, Green Man Gaming acquired Playfire, a huge and vibrant global social network of core gamers.

Green Man Gaming recently launched a Trade-in and Pre-owned service for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 games in the UK and will be expanding this further in the next 12 months.
