Play Games, Use Raptr, Win Free Stuff


Video game social networking and instant messaging service, Raptr has announced the beta launch of its rewards program today. Anyone who joins and links up their PC, Xbox Live and PlayStation Network accounts can track their gameplay activity and earn free prizes in the process. I actually caught this over the weekend, when I logged in and received notes about having won a Ghost Recon: Future Soldier beta code and discounts on some Logitech PC gaming gear. I probably won’t be using those perks, but a Microsoft Gold package or a code for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition sure would put a smile on my face.

In its first month alone, Raptr Rewards will be giving away over 350,000 free rewards valued at a whopping $1.3 million, the prizes supplied by major players in the games biz like Microsoft, Activision, Blizzard, BioWare, Ubisoft and more. Here’s a list of the prizes that are up for grabs through the end of May:

· Exclusive in-game items for Blacklight: Retribution

· Major discounts on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3-branded Logitech G-Series peripherals

· Early access codes for Diablo III

· Major discounts for Gunnar gaming eyewear

· Beta access for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

· Consoles, rare collectibles, and in-game items for Mass Effect 3

· Microsoft Gold package, featuring a free one month Gold subscription, plus Xbox LIVE Arcade games

· Free copies of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition

· Free copies of RIFT, as well as upgrade to Collector’s Edition

· Exclusive in-game items and currency for Shin Megami Tensei Imagine, Pandora Saga
