Ummmm… I just got an email from Xbox Live saying that the online multiplayer service would be updated on Tuesday, November 17th. There are several new features coming, many of which led to some serious scoffing on my part. Zune on Xbox? Who needs it! Twitter straight from your Xbox console? Pshaw! Last.FM subscription music while playing? No thank you.
But then… I saw this:
Facebook and Xbox LIVE join forces to connect you with your friends on the largest entertainment and gaming network on TV and the largest social site on the Web. Share real-time status updates and photos with your friends, as well as your favorite gaming moments from your television to Facebook.
Take bragging rights to a completely new level by sharing updates to Facebook on your achievements and success in upcoming games available on Xbox 360.
I may have swooned a little when I read that. Just sayin’.
I’m about to take “obnoxious gamer and obsessive social networker” to a whole new level, y’all.
