Facebook, Twitter and Last.fm all come to Xbox Live

Right now an awful lot of gaming news will be pouring out because of E3, so we're going to try and stay on top of it for you lot and filter the best stuff out, like a really classy coffee making thingy. OK? Good.

First up, Microsoft's showing off new things for its Xbox 360. It seems that they're trying to make the console a bona fide media hub, as they announced that Facebook, Last.fm and Twitter are all coming to Xbox Live.

Through this you'll be able to listen to music streaming the web, and will allow you to combine all your friends from Twitter and Facebook onto Xbox Live through a 'Friend Linker', as well as invite them to play games. This is all expected to hit this autumn, which we can't wait for.
