The Rockstar Games Social Club

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 01:15 PM MDT | By Neil
Social ClubRockstar Games today announced the creation of Social Club, a website which will track progress of players in Grand Theft Auto IV and many other titles. The website's features for Grand Theft Auto IV include:
LCPD Police Blotter
A virtual map and tracker of single-player criminal activity logged in Liberty City from the aggregated data of millions of connected players - showing the most dangerous areas of town, most commonly used weapons and more.

The Story Gang
This special single-player leaderboard recognizes players who complete Niko Bellic's main story arc of Grand Theft Auto IV - The leaderboard ranks players according to the total amount of playing time it's taken to complete the story, as well as a historical rank by who has completed it first. Members of this club will receive special online widgets and merit badges marking all of their in-game accomplishments.

The 100% Club
Watch to see who will be the first to complete 100% of the game. The first ten people to be identified on the Social Club as reaching 100% will be sent an ultra-rare commemorative 'key to the city' to mark their accomplishment. In the future, the 100% Club will then carry a historical leaderboard showing rankings of who has completed 100% of a game in the shortest span of playing hours.

The Hall of Fame
This area will dynamically recognize those singularly elite players who have reached the top of the hill on various statistical leaderboards, and will also contain a personal awards display of special in-game landmarks and successes in Social Club competitions.

The Liberty City Marathon
A ranking of special physical milestones achieved in the game - from the amount of miles walked, driven, or swam - to the number of bullets fired and stunt-jumps jumped. There will be additional special marathon-based competitions in the future from this area as well.
The Rockstar Games Social Club opens for registration on April 15.

Rican, I'd assume that once you're registered for this you don't need to activate anything in game, it should just track your stats as you play. There are lots of other titles which do this, a good example is Project Gotham Racing 4 which features extensive online leaderboards and stats tracking if you're signed into Xbox Live.

Rockstar is tapping into the population of forum nerds that like to brag about their video games scores in their signatures - BRILLIANT!
