Raptr Rewards Launching, Gives Games and Discounts For Gaming

You can see how long I played, but not how bad I sucked!

Surely you’ve heard of Raptr before, right? If not, a quick rundown is this: While you game, Raptr keeps track of what games you play and on what console. Over time, you get stats on what you games and genres you play the most, your achievements, and those of your friends as well — and it tracks all this across all gaming platforms.

Well, Raptr’s been doing a bit of upgrading lately. Recently, Raptr launched Ranks, which rank your ‘level’ in games based on how many hours you’ve spent playing them. You can see my current rank of “Hardcore” in Trials Evolution to the right. This ties in nicely with, and provides the perfect segue into Raptr Rewards.

What is Raptr Rewards?

Raptr Rewards is a way for Raptr to give you free stuff just for playing and enjoying the games you already play. To kick off the program, sometime before noon PDT today, Raptr will be giving away 2,500 copies of Minecraft on XBLA!

How do I get in on this Minecraft-ian goodness?

There’s really only three steps to getting in on the free games, and let’s take them directly from the source, shall we:

1) Be a Raptr member
2) Play games and track your hours with Raptr! For this particular reward, you might want to play Minecraft on your PC, recent XBLA games, or Minecraft-like games
3) Keep your eyes on your Rewards Dashboard May 10 before noon (PDT) to catch the reward when it goes live.

It’s as simple as that.

What if I don’t like Minecraft? What else is there for me?

Luckily for you, Minecraft isn’t the only thing that Raptr’s giving away. Just this month alone, Raptr has 350,000 prizes to give away including free videogames, downloadable content, beta codes, and major discounts. So if Minecraft isn’t your thing, you’re almost guaranteed to find something that fits your gaming style.

So what are you waiting for? Hop on over to Raptr Rewards!

    Not sure if you’ve heard, but there seemed to be quite a few people (myself included) who were fully qualified to claim the reward, but got screwed out of it due to some kind of system glitch – the ‘Claim Reward’ button never showed in our accounts. Thought I would pass that along.
