Users of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 video game consoles can now brag about their achievements on Facebook as both systems integrate the social network this week.

Microsoft Corp. switched on a slew of new features for its Xbox Live online service, allowing owners of the Xbox 360 consoles to update Facebook and Twitter directly from their consoles.

The Xbox 360 can also stream music from the Internet radio service Last.fm.

Sony Corp., meanwhile, is letting PlayStation 3 users connect their systems to Facebook through its latest software upgrade. Although it had already been possible to access social networks through the console's Internet browser, the latest changes let users share their gaming achievements automatically as Facebook updates.

Both companies have been looking to turn their consoles into entertainment hubs beyond gaming. Sony recently added Netflix streaming to the PS3, something that had already been possible on the Xbox 360.

By contrast, Nintendo Co. has kept its Wii first and foremost as a gaming system. Even so, the Wii has been outselling both the PS3 and the Xbox 360.

I have to agree with Jared, it seems like they're trying to make the Xbox 360 into something that does everything! We don't want that. We like LIVE yes, but we don't want our hundreds of friends on facebook to be messaging us at all times of the day while we're trying to play MW2!

Very good article. I was recently blogging on The Netflix Prize, which deals with the quality of the recommendation. However, conclusions are drawn primarily off of user ratings. People don't seem to bother rating on facebook, I know I don't. I wonder what correlations exist there...

Is it just me or are they making the Xbox into a PC for dummies?

I sleep fine at night knowing we are banning people who deserve it.  Tivon
