FFXIII-2 levels up, equips Facebook

In a bizarre twist of events, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is getting Facebook support. By inputting your social network credentials in the game's settings, you'll be able to update your friends on your party structure, story progress, and other useless statistics.

Does anyone else think this is kind of backwards? Personally, I think this idea is far better suited for leaderboards. I like the idea of in-game information staying in-game, and not having to use an additional step to compare stats. It's much more convenient to see how my friends are doing by using a simple seamless menu while playing, than it is to leave my console and go check a third party website to see what my friends are up to.

But hey, at least it's better than Final Fantasy's other "2", which only really offered super stylish outfits. For more information, check out the official press release after the break.
