Blizzard/Activision's joins forces with Facebook

Hmmmm, kind of cool actually.

Pretty soon you'll be able to add Facebook 'friends' to your friend list on for a few rounds of Starcraft 2, or whatever else you should desire.

It's no secret to anyone who knows me (though I never mentioned it here) that I'm not a fan of FB, but this is a pretty good idea- not that I would ever be using it, since

  1. I don't have a Facebook page and...
  2. I really don't play all that much stuff online
This kind of thing does make you wonder where it might be heading though. Both LIVE and the PSN boast Facebook apps, so it wouldn't be a stretch to envision a similar functionality coming to the two biggest online gaming services in the world.

Adding friends to my lists from Facebook... maybe I would- uh, nah.
