image thumb40 Sony Makes PlayTV Social – Adds Facebook Link

Sony is coming out with an update for its PlayTV, the device it released earlier coming super cheap with Sony’s 250 GB PS3 console. The device let users record a show while they played games or watched a movie on their Blu-Ray. It wasn’t something great and had a few glitches associated to recording and quality but with a very low price attached, it was quite useful to have with a purchase of PS3.

The update would bring to PlayTV what we love talking about the most: add social networking capability by making it easier for you to link to Facebook. I am not sure how far would this come along to actually entice users to grab the device but for PS3 fanboys, this one will be one more feature to give them a reason to stay glued to the console. I am not sure if this update would let you record your social networking activity as it does with recording record programs on channels. I haven’t tried the device out and have no idea how good it actually is in terms of quality recording but be sure to have a high capacity hard disk to prevent running out of disk space. Forget it if you own a 40GB console and are miser enough to not upgrade it.
