Sony Confirms Facebook Coming to PlayStation 3

Look at that. Rumors about the PS3 getting Facebook were swirling last week and the PS team has just confirmed that the upcoming firmware update (v3.10) will include Facebook. Linking your PSN account to Facebook will give you the option of updating your Facebook feed with Trophy and PS Store updates. Because your friends really want to know what you’re buying, right? I’m not entirely sure how I feel about the following but “this update also enables developers to set specific criteria in their titles to publish additional game information to your News Feed.”

You, dear reader, wouldn’t know it, but I’m currently transcribing an interview I had with Marc Whitten last week and I had just asked him about this rumor! Crazy! But it’s nowhere near the same experience as it is on the Xbox 360. Just watch the video preview of v3.10 for the PS3 and you’ll see what I mean.

Additional highlights from update 3.10 include:
• The Photo category on the XMB has been revamped to make it easier to see more of your photos stored on the PS3.
• The PSN Friends List has been modified based on feedback we received after update 3.00.
• Additionally, you can now choose a color for your PSN ID on the XMB.
