300°
265w ago - Just under two weeks ago Sony incorporated Facebook integration into the PS3 XMB through the PS3 Firmware 3.10 update.

Today, NewMediaAge (linked above) is reporting that Sony PlayStation and Facebook are launching a year-long global interactive tournament in December following its recent partnership with social network Facebook.

Details are sparse at the moment, however, we do know that the tournament will be referred to simply as 'The Game' and will highlight the social networking elements of the PS3 system.

To quote: "Sony PlayStation is launching a year-long global interactive tournament, dubbed The Game, following its recent partnership with social network Facebook.

The Game, slated for an early December release and hosted via the online PlayStation Network, is the first tie-up between the two companies after they struck a partnership deal earlier this month."

267w ago - Today MCVUK.com (linked above) is reporting that XBox 360 Project Natal launch details have leaked from a Microsoft Tour of UK publishers and studios.

According to the leaked information, the controller-free XBox 360 camera will be released worldwide in November, 2010 with five million units to ship for launch day.

To quote: Microsoft is planning to manufacture 5m units for day one release, with a mix of console and camera plus solus SKUs expected.

The device should cost under £50 when sold solo. One publishing source says Microsoft is "trying to get as close as possible to 'impulse buy'". Another even says the camera could even retail for just £30.

14 games are being readied for launch. This summer Xbox studios boss Phil Spencer told MCV the 360 still 'hasn't peaked'.

"When Natal arrives it will feel like a new generation has come," he said. "I see it like the launch of 360 in November '05. Consumers don't want another $400 box right now."
