Update: The page has been taken down. Perhaps the page went up too early?

Original: The official United Kingdom Xbox website has revealed that the Twitter and Facebook dashboard update will arrive on Xbox 360 consoles this November 17th. The new update links you to your Facebook friends and to your Twitter account, so you can status update and Tweet as you game.

A public beta is scheduled for a select amount of gold members during the middle of this month.

    I think Sony is regretting not getting in on this sooner or at least at the same time. I keep seeing “Follow us on Twitter/Facebook” in the What’s New section as though that’s going to make up for the fact that they slept on FB and Twitter integration.

    Oh well. It took Sony 3 years to get the PSN Store up to par with XBL maybe PS3 owners will get FB and Twitter in 2011.

    Maybe they’ll have Netflix integration by then too since Netflix is intent on not limiting themselves to just the 360 (there’s an interview in the latest Wired magazine with the Netflix CEO).

      “PS3 owners will get FB and Twitter in 2011″.

      Think before you post. The PS3 has had Facebook & Twitter since the day it was launched in 2007. And YouTube, and MySpace – and pretty much anything else you can access with a Web Browser.

      Makes you wonder why M$ hasn’t put a browser on the 360…
