Rumor: Next PS3 firmware will have Facebook integration

A set of three screenshots have been making rounds of the Internet,‭ ‬apparently picked up directly from PlayStation website.‭ ‬These images reveal some of possible new features of an XMB update like Facebook integration.

Apparently,‭ ‬the images were first picked up by ScrawlFX and later by Joystiq and now it’s all over the place.‭ ‬The images also indicate couple of other minor changes to the interface—an option to change your gamecard colors and a new way of browsing through images stores on the console.

Not surprisingly,‭ ‬when Joytiq contacted SCEE about the images,‭ ‬they were greeted by the industry standard statement,‭ “‬[the company‭]…‬doesn't comment on rumor or speculation.‭”‬ Sounds more like company slip-ups to me.‭ ‬The original links to the images are no longer available,‭ ‬but for the sake of record,‭ ‬here are the links:
