PS3 firmware adds auto Facebook updates

Sony today acted on early teases by updating the PlayStation 3's firmware to 3.10. The update is the first to integrate with Facebook and links with an account to push news to the social network in certain conditions: it can share news of of trophy milestones, buying new games or game events in future Facebook-aware titles. Code in the web browser has also been improved to better display Facebook itself.

No native app exists to update or view updates from Facebook, though unlike the rivaling Xbox 360 update launched this week, the current PS3 adaptation can grant access to the full feature set.

Other improvements in 3.10 bring a much improved photo browser, which shows thumbnails in a grid and makes it easier to pick them out visually, and colored frames around others on the friends list that can be customized by the users themselves.
