Ok.. Nobody go crazy on me and say WTF?? This is XBOX Site!!!...lol

Eric would you ever consider syncing Steam Achievements?..The player would have to allow public viewing in there privacy settings so you could crawl it. That is how the other site are able to grab profile info.

I was using raptr before i stumble onto GTN.. I never looked back!!!..But some of us work really hard for our steam achievements as well and i would love to have my steam sync here also..It would be my ultimate all in one site for my gaming... I could play both platforms and know that all that time invested was being tracked at GTN and i could earn badges from both.

Love to have people come to my gaming profile and see everything in one spot.
Honestly, most sites that do expand beyond one system really begin to struggle. They are just pulled in too many directions.

GamerDNA really went nowhere. Even after acquiring 360voice, and 360voice has really just been the largest portion of it.

Raptr tries really hard, but no one seems to care for long.

MetaGamerScore.com has an interesting idea, basically combine TrueAchievements across 9 gaming platforms (Xbox, PSN, Steam, Diablo 3, WoW, Starcraft 2 and 3 others), but, nothing really there.

Gamertag Nation is probably better off finding a niche in the Xbox Ecosystem, something that sets it apart from 360voice, TrueAchievements, and others, but keeps people interested and returning.
What sort of niche Futiles. If you have any ideas I'd be happy to here them. Anything that can help expand or make GTN a bit better is ggod and any ideas would be taken into consideration.

What does GTN see itself as right now?

360voice has blogs and streaks.

TrueAchievements has their score adjusting matrix, your friend feed and walkthroughs.

So, I would avoid those things as a focus.

Currently, it appears that the focus at GTN is more on Achievements and Achievement count, rather than gamerscore and score increase. And the rarity of achievements, while similar to TA, is not exactly the same. Someone suggested a rarity breakout stat on your profile page, which would fit in well.

Like many sites, there seems to be a side focus on challenges. Depending on how easily Eric could add it to the core of the site, having a system for truly customizable, user-created challenges could be a really be separation point.

The NATION portion of GTN also lends itself to the entire clan setup, so a focus on TEAM based challenges and events, specifically around clan-vs-clan matchup would enhance that theme.

Think about some regularity of the same type/theme of team challenge, too. So that in a year, perhaps there are 2-4 clan-based, team challenges. And the clan with the most victory points has some form of badge that designates them as the champ.

Yes 360voice, TA, XboxAmerica, etc all host challenges, but they are forum challenges, with no true integration to the site, other than maybe score pulls and such.
A dedicated team/clan feature and game challenge/session system should be ready to go by the end of the year. Several other key additions are scheduled to be released later this year.

I plan on adding support for Steam games and achievements sometime next year.
