Xbox 360 Twitter and Facebook Update Before Christmas


The next Xbox 360 dashboard update is right around the corner, set to hit early August, but it won’t be including the highly anticipated Twitter and Facebook applications we so crave. However, they will arrive before Christmas.

James Halton with Microsoft Marketing confirmed to Eurogamer that the Twitter and Facebook applications for Xbox 360 will arrive in “autumn”. He wouldn’t give a smaller release window. However, he does say that “It will be before Christmas.” Adding, “A lot of the background work’s been done for a lot of applications that are coming.”

The Twitter and Facebook applications will not be part of a big update, rather their own application downloads.
