Sponsored Links
249w ago - Today PlayStation Network Operations Director Eric Lempel shared a video preview of the upcoming PS3 Firmware v3.10 update.

To quote: Hi everyone, here's an early peek at PlayStation 3 (PS3) firmware update (v3.10). The latest update incorporates Facebook into the PS3 experience.

By linking your PlayStation Network account to your Facebook account, you will have the option for the PS3 to automatically update your Facebook News Feed with Trophy and PlayStation Store activity.

This update also enables developers to set specific criteria in their titles to publish additional game information to your News Feed. You can then check out your updates, and those of your friends, on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media favorites through the PS3's built-in web browser.

This is just the beginning of our integration with Facebook and we are looking forward to adding new features enhancing the experience in future updates.

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.

To get a preview of what's coming in update 3.10, check out the video below:





We're looking forward to releasing firmware update 3.10 soon. As always, we appreciate your feedback.

Boring... Another useless update.

Honestly people, there's more to life than facebook.

Sony - why don't you do something useful? Do some crazy cool stuff that puts the other consoles to shame. Instead, you're farting around with facebook support?? WTF? That's going to lock you into supporting facebook through its evolution for years to come.

This is the best you can come up with? People have been asking for cross-game chat - as much as I don't care for that feature either, at least it's something the majority of PS3 owners have been asking for. In my circle of friends, not one gives a rats behind about facebook integration.

My thoughts exactly. Facebook?!?

I was also one of the people that submitted this piece of news, less than a hour after it was posted on the blog, and I didn't get credit.
I am +Rep'ing your post reply in this thread too.

We do have more backend work to do soon (hopefully tonight we'll do some) so to those who occasionally submit news just keep this in mind. Hopefully by this weekend everything will be completed though.

Facebook integration... I wonder how it will work on the front and back ends.
I'd rather have cross-game chat though.

Well, the Facebook integration is a Nice-To-Have feature but it's not THA feature.

Sony should be making more interesting stuff... Everyone will forget about the facebook integration on day 2...

i just wish they had a universal game launching setup, like home was supposed to be. I still love my ps3, and won't stop playing it. I just wish they would implement the features that we are all requesting.
