‘Major’ PS3 Firmware Update will add Facebook to PlayTV

By Alan Ng - Apr 15, 2010

We have some great news for PS3 owners who are hungry for another big Firmware Update now, as Sony has confirmed that a major one is planned before the end of the year.

As reported from Eurogamer, specific features of the update are obviously unknown at the moment, but one feature that has been revealed already, is the addition of Facebook functionality within Sony’s PlayTV software.

PSN product manager James Thorpe posted a message on the EU PS Blog, about the upcoming features, adding he didn’t want to give too much away and spoil the ‘surprise’.

What are your thoughts about this though? While ‘proper’ Facebook integration will be awesome, it is slightly disappointing that you’ll need the PlayTV kit to make use of it.

Do any of you use PlayTV regularly?
