It’s almost funny to know that only a day after Microsoft launches Facebook capabilities for its Live subscribers, Sony launches the same service for free. While many feel that Sony is playing catch up to the features Xbox Live has to offer, Firmware 3.10 further displays that Sony is running meter by meter with its competitor. According to the official Press Release, Firmware 3.10 is releasing today (PC World says it’s already available), and it will allow users to utilize Facebook integration as well as manage their photos in an entirely new way.
“Launching Facebook for the PlayStation community is a natural fit for our goal of delivering unparalleled connected experiences – from connecting our community to each other to connecting our customers to great entertainment downloaded from the PlayStation Store,” said Susan Panico, senior director, PlayStation Network, SCEA. “As we pass the third anniversary of PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Network, we’re excited to deepen the social experiences of PlayStation Network and kick-off the first phase of our integration with Facebook.”
