Sponsored Links
266w 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.

+ Very nice about the friends list change.
- There should still be an option to turn that "highlight" off all together.

+ Organization of pics looks good. Wonder how it's going to look on sd tv's though?

+ Facebook integration... don't use it, don't care, but maybe good for people that are into that kinda of stuff.

- Still no option to change the font size...

- Still no way to get rid of the ticker in the upper right (without changing the date)...

/lays down 2 cents

I thought facebook integration would mean having an icon that makes one directly log into facebook. I am sure it is not everyone who is interested in sharing game information and from what has been demoed, you link to facebook by turning on three features in your account info, which I won't do.

Secondly if the browse could just be fast enough to be a credible alternative to the PC's then that would be merit making this update interesting. From what I have seen in the video it is more of a 3.01 than 3.1.

Works fine here, and it uses the same code as all the others we post from the PS Blog so perhaps it's just a temporary issue with the Viddler service for you.

I will +Rep your reply posted in this thread now, but when we do backend work (as we did today) the submissions do not work properly.

This is the drawback of not having a test site I suppose, but we do the best we can.
