Not content with outing a new motion-sensitive controller, Microsoft has just announced further plans for world domination by announcing that top social networking services Last.fm, Facebook and Twitter will be integrated into the Xbox Live experience.

Taking Xbox Live to the next level of entertainment all-rounder, Microsoft announced the three updates to the 360's dashboard at E3 today. You'll be able to stream music, catch up on Tweets and stay up to date with your Facey-B mates all in one place.

A new “Friend Linker” feature will let you combine your contacts from Xbox Live and Facebook, and invite them to play games with you – as if you needed more of an excuse, right?

The additons are expected to appear on Xbox Live this autumn. Stay tuned for more E3 gaming news and video over in the Stuff.tv Gaming blog.
