[Updated] Twitter and Facebook only for XBL Gold Subbers


Destructoid noticed that within the same press release that announced the new Xbox 360 Elite price drop, there was language that states both Facebook and Twitter will only be available to Xbox Live Gold Subscribers.

Quote:
Xbox LIVE Gold Membership will be required for Twitter and Facebook when they are available, and is required for Netflix. Games, media content and Netflix membership are sold separately; a hard drive is required for storage.
UPDATE:

Microsoft has told MCV that the wording is incorrect.

Quote:
However, a Microsoft spokesperson told MCV that the information is “incorrect” and that the firm “is still formulating its plans” for Xbox 360’s upcoming social network integration.
Value... add?

Twitter at least is for the technocrati, so you may as well have a gold account since youll be playing MP games on your box

Strange, not seeing why anyone would go for this.

Facebook is supposed to support screenshot uploads from your 360.

I'd be fine with this if they would couple it with the move to free Silver multiplayer. Even if it's just simple online play with no access to premium features like being able to compete in tournaments, et. al. It's really way past due.

I guess if you want to Tweet or play Mafia Wars, you'll hafta buy the Gold subscription. Or y'know just browse the web on a computer/PS3 for free.

OMG. This is too much! Good thing I've got Gold....for Netflix....which I didn't wanna pay extra for....but it sucks on my PC.
Better yet, I have a PS3 for games....and Blurays.

Microsoft told MCV that the information about it being gold only is incorrect.
