Facebook coming to Xbox 360




Good news for Facebook addicted Xbox 360 owners. This fall, Microsoft will blend Facebook into the Xbox Experience interface, giving users access to photos, videos, and news feeds straight from their television sets. Additionally, the console will add support for Facebook Connect, which will let users upload, for example, in-game screenshots to your Facebook profile and publish recent activity in on the Wall. A feature called Friend Linking will enable users to invite Facebook friends to become XBox contacts.

From Microsoft‘s press release:

“We are always asking ourselves how to make the TV more social,” said John Schappert, corporate vice president of Interactive Entertainment LIVE, Software and Studios at Microsoft. “By bringing Facebook, Last.fm and Xbox LIVE Party for movies and TV shows to Xbox LIVE, we’re not only extending the walls of your living room beyond your home to your friends in different corners of the world, we’re creating the definitive social network, uniting more than 200 million people to share status updates, pictures, thoughts on music and the world’s best online gaming experience.”

The addition of Facebook to Xbox LIVE means friends are always connected, anytime, anywhere — from virtually any couch. But updating your status and sharing photos won’t be the only things you can do. Using Facebook Connect, you can share your greatest moments in gaming by posting updates and screenshots from supported games directly to Facebook. Don’t let your moment of glory fade away — make sure everyone sees it with Facebook Connect, starting with the future version of the premier EA SPORTS golf franchise “Tiger Woods PGA TOUR®.”
