Twitter and Facebook for 360 arrive before Christmas

Microsoft has said that the Twitter and Facebook integrations planned for Xbox 360 will be individual apps instead of being part of a general dashboard update, Eurogamer reports. One of Microsoft’s marketing people, James Halton said the company is aiming for a release date around Autumn, but didn’t specify beyond that. He did say “it will be before Christmas,” adding, “A lot of the background work’s been done for a lot of applications that are coming.”
