Social media may be the buzziest of buzz terms, but over the next few years, we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Facebook and Twitter interaction from our consoles. For starters, PS4 uses the connection with Facebook to allow you to share game clips and link your PSN account to Zuckerberg’s brainchild. This is great if you’re into that sort of over-sharing thing, which the world has decided that it is very much in to.
But, if you’re desperate for everyone to know what you’re doing at that exact moments, then you’re in luck, because the genesis for social media integration--that’s buzzword bingo, folks--began with this round of consoles. Some games, like Uncharted 2, already have Twitter integration in them, so when you earn a Trophy for mass murder with a cheeky grin, your entire online following will know... and almost certainly tweet back to congratulate you, and not chastise you for spamming them with constant updates from a four year old game.
