Well at least imitation is the highest form of flattery :P I have to say, well done, Giantbomb, for bringing new ideas to the table that are cool enough to attract the attention of other large sites.
Or, in this case, the highest form of embarrassment for GameSpot. It'd be like if you kept losing to the rival in Pokemon Red/Blue, so you decided to copy their party fairly closely.

I sort of agree with the sentiment, but the APIs are out there for people to use, and the aggregation of usage statistics seems an excellent use for them. Besides, this seems to be tied in with a desktop app, and seems more like a broader version of the built-in Steam IM client.
If it's any consolation, I don't see the service becoming big enough to be of any note. These sorts of things come and go all the time, especially when they're tied to Gamespot, it seems (not a slight against the site, just observation based on the past, with services like their download client).
this kind of stuff seems to already been made. i kind of am suspicious about how it says adware and spyware free right there lol. good for them for making something new. it kind of seems like xfire. it is what i first thought of when i saw it. it's Xfire rip off. who knows if it is going to be good or not.
