Nave360 Partners with Raptr

Some time ago, Nave360 was asked if we wanted to become one of the many partners of Raptr. Raptr is a software program that tracks your hours on video games and totals them up so you and your friends can check your progression. It also tracks achievements and trophies, and it has features which allows you to create mini reviews of the games. Just recently, they have relaunched their website with a brand new look, and it looks better than ever. Our partnership with the site allows our articles to be published in their brand new “Social News” section. Being a partner to Raptr means a lot for the site and we are extremely excited to see how things turn out. To see the newly refurbished site, go to http://raptr.com/.

About the Author

Some say I should be a video game journalist, others say a video game designer. Shame you can't be both.



  • We joined with Raptr as a Launch Partner as well (www.savingcontent.com). I really appreciate them embracing the smaller gaming press to help get their news out there. It still needs work but looking forward to it to help us get bigger and better. Hope it does the same for you guys!
