MS says Xbox 360 Twitter and Facebook claims inaccurate

Xbox Live Gold not required

| Gaming News | Posted: Aug 28, 2009 2:56 pm

We are always quick to dispel any FUD we find. So when we saw the reports that Twitter and Facebook were only going to be free for the Xbox Live Gold members we were very disappointed but did not want to post about it right away.

 

Well we are glad that we waited. It seems that the information that caused these reports is inaccurate. MCV UK has been in touch with Microsoft and they have said that the statement that was at the bottom of the price cut announcement was not correct.

 

"Xbox Live Gold Membership will be required for Twitter and Facebook when they are available"

 

Apparently MS has not finished detailing how they are going to integrate these functions yet so they are not even sure what you will need. The integration is probably going to be part of the Fall update but nothing official has been said. If MS requires a gold membership it would hurt the adoption of these features. After all they are free on the PC, iPhone, BlackBerry, and even the PS3.

 

I guess we all will have to wait to find out what will happen with these new social networking tools for the Xbox 360.
