Microsoft has confirmed it’s retiring the Facebook and Twitter apps on the Xbox Live dashboard. The news was confirmed to IGN, with the firm stating the apps will no longer be present when the mandatory Xbox 360 dashboard update launches in an effort to “streamline” app functionality. The update is expected around October 23.

    After they made such a song and dance about it a few E3′s ago? They had whats-her-face, that actress on stage and everything.

    @1 I’m a PC player so I don’t get it. What is the difference between how you access these now and how will you access them using IE?

    Think I used facebook once or twice on my Xbox and that was only because I thought it was neat to have the option. I would rather just use my phone if I wanted to check facebook >>
