Facebook and Twitter Now Available On Xbox 360

Integration of social media with gaming consoles like PS3 and Xbox is no breaking news. It had been in works for quite some time and now we are seeing the official roll-out of these features.

As of today, Xbox 360 users who have an Xbox live membership can enjoy popular social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm and Zune HD on their consoles. Facebook and Twitter will appear automatically on the dashboard within your My Community Channel. While Zune HD and Last.fm can be found in the Video and Music channels respectively.

So now Xbox 360 users can update their Facebook and Twitter status right from their consoles and connect to their friends in real-time. The option to view full-screen photos is also available within the Facebook feature. Zune HD allows users to stream HD videos on your Xbox 360 while Last.fm allows you to listen to music from all over the world. You can also skip, ban and love tracks as you listen to them.

    I was very optimistic about last.fm but, we (indians) are not allowed to access it. This is very unfair!

    Other features are crap! I would rather have a web browser option..

    BTW, They haven't yet fixed the Facebook problem on Indian GTs.
