Not to be outdone by the Xbox 360’s upcoming social media frenzy, Sony’s been doing a little super-poking around of its own. The result: PS3-powered Facebook updates.

If you so choose, the PS3 will soon be able to update your Facebook status each time you earn a Trophy or make a purchase on the PlayStation Store. It only does everything, so you don’t have to do anything. Ever.

The 3.10 update will also include a revamped XMB photo category, and an upgraded PSN friends list.

No concrete release date yet, but Sony’s saying “soon” for this one. There’s a video of the update in action after the break, courtesy of the US PlayStation Blog.
