London, 23rd December 2013  –  Delivering earlier than Santa,  Green Man Gaming, the world’s fastest growing social commerce platform for video games, is happy to announce its launched the PS4 tracking BETA on its  Playfire service; the innovative social network where gamers can track their in-game achievements.

Following the most successful launch in PlayStation’s history, 2.4 million PS4 console owners can now track their game play and trophies, check out what the most popular PS4 titles are, and discover what their friends and the community are getting into on Playfire.

Specifically designed so that users can share their gaming experiences at the touch of a button on the Dualshock 4 wireless controller, the PS4 “SHARE” menu has been accessed more than 10.9 million times. As it’s the season for exchanging and spreading good news, Playfire users can share all their game play and opinions as the PS4 BETA also complements a freshly updated Vita and PS3 tracking system.

“We were one of the first services to support Xbox One game tracking, and are thrilled to present PS4 tracking in time for Christmas" said Paul Sulyok, CEO of Green Man Gaming and Playfire. "Thanks to the generous feedback from our community, combined with the quick work and skill of our talented development team, there will be many more exciting Playfire projects coming soon in 2014."

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. For more information or to join in the conversation, visit the Playfire  blog.
