Sony Europe's PlayTV peripheral for the PlayStation 3 is to see the addition of new social network features, including Facebook.
In a brief post made by PlayStation Network product manager James Thorpe on the official PlayStation blog it was indicated that Sony's Cambridge studios have already begun testing some of the new features.
The public update is due "later this year", with Thorpe promising "links to the world's most popular social network site, Facebook" and "other great enhancements to PlayTV and brand new features".
Sony may be attempting to emulate some of the social features present in the Xbox 360 support for Sky digital services, which allow users to watch video content communally and chat via Xbox Live.
The PlayTV hardware add-on is only available in Europe and other regions that use the same television technology. The peripheral acts as a digital television receiver and digital video recorder, with UK sales put at 85,000 units by September 2008.
An equivalent peripheral named torne was revealed for Japan earlier in the year, but despite using similar television technology no release has yet been announced for North America.
