PS3, Xbox to soon get Twitter, Facebook integration
Microsoft has kept few secrets about its upcoming Dashboard update, which will give Xbox Live Gold members Twitter, Facebook, and Last.fm integration on November 17.
"Xbox Live's differentiator has always been our community, and we've already seen a tremendous response to these features in our public preview. It's the community that drives us forward and allows us to pioneer new ways of connecting people through the entertainment they love," Xbox Live general manager Marc Whitten said.
But accidentally leaked screenshots of Facebook running natively on the PlayStation 3 have caused a little more of a stir among the video game media. As usual, this is because of the element of mystery involved, and also Sony's track record of giving out for free what Microsoft charges for. Sony has not yet issued any comments on the leaked images, but Eurogamer today said that there will be more information on them "very shortly."
Betanews sent an inquiry to SCEA this afternoon, and will report on its response if and when it comes.
