Sony’s to release PS3 Firmware 3.10 today, PSN director Eric Lempel’s told 1UP, bringing Facebook integration. The firm’s been keen to stress the social media site’s advent on PS3 has nothing to do with the fact it’s just gone live on 360.

“I’ll just say that it’s been in the works for quite some time,” said Lempel.

“It’s never been easy to just integrate new content into the PlayStation Network. We’ve had this planned for a while now.”

Facebook integration is the main thrust of the software update, meaning PS3 gamers will now be able to dump to share Trophy updates into the service’s news feed.

Lempel added that tools to allow games to trasmit event updates to Facebook have already been sent out to Sony’s first-party developers.
