Xbox Live Facebook, Twitter beta this month

Last.FM too, says Microsoft

Xbox 360 Facebook, Twitter and Last.FM functionality will go into public beta later this month, a Microsoft rep revealed in New York.

The beta will kick off in "middle-towards-end of October," Microsoft told MTV, and like other Dashboard betas will involve invites being sent out to certain members of the Xbox community.

You'll remember that a minor system update prepared 360 owners for the features last month.

Early access to the social networking goods will also be granted to members of the press, says Microsoft, so expect us to go Dashboard movie mental within the next 24 days.

We've contacted Microsoft to see if this is good for Europe as well as the US.
