Rumor: PS3 Adding Facebook, New Gamercard Options & More

The PlayStation 3 may follow in the Xbox 360 and Nintendo DSi's footsteps, adding Facebook integration to the console's Cross Media Bar, according to reportedly leaked images from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

Images of PlayStation 3 dashboard screens spotted by ScrawlFX highlight a few possible additions coming in future firmware updates. Also rumored to be included is a new photo viewing option and additional gamercard customization options — OK, the option to change the color on your gamercard, which isn't all that exciting.

Those images of the PS3 XMB were reportedly taken directly from the UK version of PlayStation.com, lending some serious credibility to their authenticity. They have since been removed.

We're following up with Sony to see when we can expect Facebook on the PS3.
