Free GameSpy APIs

GameSpy Technology announces that beginning tomorrow they will be offering game developers free access to their cross-platform game services. Word is: "On Friday, GameSpy Technology’s APIs will be available via an easy online self-service process, allowing all developers to access the APIs and begin adding online functionality to their games right away. The cross-platform SDKs include open APIs for rich player data tracking to gauge game performance and audience engagement, user-generated cloud storage content tools to enable actively-engaged communities to collaborate and extend the gameplay experience, social network integration, in-game or web-based commerce and competitive matchmaking services. GameSpy Technology’s services have been tested and proven at multiple levels of scale, from small indie games all the way up to multi-million selling online console titles."

GameSpy is outdated and annoying (see Borderlands for a good example). May it die soon and forever be replaced with the vastly super SteamWorks. And may GFWL die even sooner (see every GFWL game ever created).

Gamespy is vastly superior to either of those other two you mention as it is the only one (AFAIK) without invasive DRM.
