Naughty Dog Updates Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Twitter Feeds

250°
252w ago - Today Naughty Dog's Co-President Evan Wells has announced that they will be updating the frequency of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Twitter feeds as a result of too many updates.

To quote: We've seen some concern about the frequency of updates for those choosing to use UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves' [Register or Login to view links] support.

Some reviewers have had early access to the game and selected the option to update their Twitter accounts as they completed each chapter of the game. This has resulted in some Twitter feeds being updated multiple times an hour.

We obviously want to provide the best experience for everybody, so for the time being we've disabled Twitter updates on chapter completions. The option will still exist in the menus when the game ships on 10/13, but if activated, it will do nothing.

Some time after the game has shipped, we'll release a patch to reactivate the feature, but with a limit on the frequency of updates.

We're certainly sorry for any inconvenience, but I guess that's the risk you run when trying to blaze a new trail in the complicated world of Social Media!

And the 140 character version: Heard concerns about Twitter chapter updates for UNCHARTED 2. We've just disabled it but will patch...
 

XBox 360's Facebook & Twitter Requires XBL Gold Subscription

550°
256w ago - At E3 Microsoft said that Xbox Live users would need to be Gold members (requiring an annual fee) to access Last.fm without paying for a Last.fm-specific subscription.

What Microsoft didn't mention, however, was that these limitations would extend to both Facebook and Twitter as well.

This news was buried in Microsoft's late night press release about the new Xbox 360 price adjustments. Here's what the press release says, to quote:

"Xbox LIVE Gold Membership will be required for Twitter and Facebook when they are available, and is required for Netflix. Games, media content and Netflix membership are sold separately; a hard drive is required for storage."

When Facebook and Twitter's Xbox Live extensions launch later this year, you'll need to be a paying subscriber to access the applications.

The press release doesn't get anymore specific than saying the social networking add-ons will arrive sometime "this fall," as Microsoft has said in the past.
