"It is biased in one respect, thus we cannot infer from it anything in any other respect", is basically what you are arguing. What you must understand is the fact, that bias in one respect does not imply bias in every respect. We know with 100 % certainty, that xfire users are indeed biased in terms of how many of them use xfire, exactly because they constitute the subset of pc gamers who use xfire. We know nothing else or whether this bias has any correlation to other aspects of xfire user's gaming behavior that may influence whatever unknown population parameter(s) you are trying to estimate.
To dismiss a biased sample purely on speculative grounds as to how the bias may manifest itself, is poor practice indeed. In science, we are seldom awarded the luxury of dealing with such niceties as 'completely randomized unbiased samples', which the basic predictive power of statistics is so dependent upon.
However, i don’t believe that is entirely the case. Historically, Xfire data has beautifully reflected the population trends of many MMOs. These trends are often accompanied by 'anecdotal data' from other 3rd party sites measuring ie. server-load, game sales, activity on forums, activity in-game etc. confirming and in agreement with xfire data.
