Sony has said that its PlayTV software will receive social network integration in a "major update" which is "due towards the end of 2010".

"The next update for PlayTV is due later this year but testing of some of the new features has already begun," PSN product manager James Thorpe wrote on the European PlayStation Blog.

"I don't want to give too much away and spoil the surprise but a little hint to one of the new features is that PlayTV will have links to the world's most popular social network site, Facebook."

Apparently we should expect "other great enhancements" and "brand new features" to be included in the update, which will be trailed on the PS Blog beforehand.

PlayTV allows PS3 owners to record and play back TV through their PS3s.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
