X-box Live’s general manager Marc Whitten confirmed that on November 17th X-box Live users will be able to able to the use Facebook and Twitter on their X-box 360.
Will anyone plan on using this service? I’m not really into Facebook or Twitter, but it seems like if I did a PC would already be enough for these services.

X-box Live Gold members will be able to grab Resident Evil 5‘s Versus mode this week at a 40% discount. I don’t know if or when this deal will come to PSN. If its not already up then keep an eye on the US PlayStation Store update that usually hits on Wednesdays. The deal isn’t available in Japan though, so if you live in Japan you will be out of luck when it comes to Resident Evil. Instead Golf: Tee It Up is up for 400 points.

Over the weekend X-box.com updated it’s UK page with the date “November 17th” listed for face book and Twitter support. Since then the date has been changed to “Autumn 2009”. The damage has been done though. There is not much Microsoft can do at this point except deny the date was ever listed until they announce it or release the update.
