Xbox 360 News

Social services hit 360 today

Twitter, Facebook and Last.fm go live

Just a little reminder for you this morning, as we recall that the much-touted new social tools are hitting Xbox Live today.

Twitter, Facebook and Last.fm support is being added to the Xbox 360, via a seamless update, although you'll need to be over 18 to use these new tools.

Gold subscribers will get free access, and we've been told previously that Silver users will be given a trial. It is unclear how the roll out is going, but given that these new features have been heavily tested, we're hoping everything will land smoothly.

"When we turn on the new features tomorrow theyll just appear! No need for a system update," beamed Major Nelson, affirming the roll-out.

More on this news soon.
