Microsoft announced the addition of Last.fm, Facebook and Twitter at E3 2009, much to the dismay of ornery antisocialites, promising a 2009 release for those services. With a beta reported to hit this month, it seems things are on schedule.

According to MTV Multiplayer, Microsoft plans to issue said beta publicly "middle-towards-end of October." That would point to a finalized roll out likely sometime in November, perfect timing for commercials that would air just prior to Black Friday's holiday shopping madness.

DISCUSSION

Last.FM is so last year.

Spotify FTW.

So any word on Facebook support will be like? Twitter is fairly simple, other wise there wouldn't be 1001 twitter clients. But I guess Facebook will advance as far as the Home page n status updates n what not, maybe support pictures. But I guess apps are out the question, no Farmville or ChainRxn, cos going that far they may as well, you know, give it a web browesr n drag it to 7th gen already.
