Maybe I should get a new console and go back to my console gaming habits. I’m really dying to know how could a video console fare up as a social networking device. I mean, a couple of days ago Sony announced that the Playstation 3 now supports Facebook updates. Â For me that was awesome, and now here comes this report saying that more users or gamers if I may say so are doing their social networking chores on Xbox Live. What the?
Is it just me or are you aware that at least 2 million Xbox Live users have used their console to log-in to Facebook , while half of them used it to create a Last.fm account? Â In addition, Â the number of gamers who are using the Xbox Live to tweet are also increasing.
Being a console game fanatics not so long ago, this news really amuses me. During my Playstation and Playstation gaming days, all I can do with my console aside from playing game is to play movies and music CDs. Â Life was so simple back then as it is not right now.
What’s so interesting about this news is the fact that the 2 million Xbox Live users was accounted only a week after the feature was rolled out. Â That’s amazing, right?
So, is thing going to be the future of game consoles? What’s next after social networking features? A game console, netbook, and ereader rolled into one perhaps?
