Microsoft has clarified yesterday's confusion regarding the upcoming integration of Twitter and Facebook on Xbox 360, admitting that Silver Xbox Live members will not be able to access the service on an ongoing basis.
Facebook and Twitter on Xbox Live will be free to Gold members, with a free trial period also available for Silver members,” a statement from the platform holder explained.
Facebook and Twitter on Xbox Live will offer a truly one-of-a-kind social experience, completely optimized for the TV and seamlessly integrated onto your console.
Add to that exclusive access to Last.fm, Netflix instant streaming, demos, trailers and discounts, plus the best multiplayer gaming network on the planet, and we're confident Xbox Live Gold memberships is hands-down the best value in home entertainment.
We're committed to adding new features and value for our Gold members, and will continue to do so.”
