Confirmed: Facebook and new features coming to PS3

A few days back we reported that the next PS3 firmware update could include facebook integration, well, Sony has confirmed today on it’s
offical blog that the next FW update(v3.10) will bring facebook to PS3. By linking your PlayStation Network account to your Facebook account, you will have the option for the PS3 to automatically update your Facebook News Feed with Trophy and PlayStation Store activity. This update would also enable developers to set specific criteria in their titles to publish additional game information to your News Feed. You can then check out your updates, and those of your friends, on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media favorites through the PS3’s built-in web browser.
Expect new features to be added later on to enhance the facebook experience on the playstation 3.

Additional highlights from update 3.10 include:
+ The Photo category on the XMB has been revamped to make it easier to see more of your photos stored on the PS3.
+ The PSN Friends List has been modified based on feedback we received after update 3.00. Additionally, you can now choose a color for your PSN ID on the XMB.
