Life With PlayStation Available Now

Sev1512 of PlayStation LifeStyle writes:

Load up Folding@Home and it will tell you that an update is available, proceed with your download, and restart Folding@Home.

The Folding@Home icon has been replaced with Life With PlayStation

Videos coming soon. (PS3)

Update It seems as though many people are not getting prompted to update.

Please check out this thread on the Official PS forums for more info...


Here is a video of me running Life With PlayStation

Here is a image sent to my by someone on my friends list, with proof I have LWP

hell yea
this really suites my needs, its really convenient and they have a really nice set up going on, but i do think they need to add more locations (mine is there) for every body. alot of info though so thats a really good start.

does this count as using folding@home to donate?

Yes it does ^^^^
PoSTedUP  +   2536d ago
aww : (

ive already donated a **** load of power to stanford and i cant afford another 200$'s added to my electric bill, i was unaware of that in the first place. maybe when i start making more money but right now i am not in the right position to do that.

is their any way i dont have to use folding@home and can still use LWP? (probably not..)

I went to sleep after the update was done so I'll check it out when I come off of work.

Sony may be late with their deliveries but when they deliver stuff, it turns out really good. :3

Fans of the "other console" took them away from me =(
Michael Jackson  +   2536d ago
We all know that the other console needs a lot more "fans"..
..since it tends to over heat from time to time. :D

whateva  +   2536d ago
I go to sleep for 3 hours things go crazy over at sony!
goes to download F@H
Jamie Foxx  +   2536d ago
alot of us me included went straight to folding at home first and did the download,i think thats why we havnt got lifewithplaystation

do your firmware 2.43 update first then do the folding at home update an see if that works

as i sit here with a sad face

you do know this was promised at E3 to be out before august ended? yea great job indeed ;)
darkpower  +   2536d ago
Better to be out when it's ready than rushed out and have a whole bunch of hardware reliability issues, now is it?

And how do you KNOW that this wasn't released in August? We may have just discovered HOW to get it now (which is, by the way, a really clever way to get people to download the folding@home app to boot).

Have more games than any console out in the market now. Aside from PS3 games, it can also play PS1 and PS2 games.
poopsack  +   2536d ago
its sad that you only enjoy games above 90% metascore, other people with real brains have been enjoying a great library until now.
Final_Rpg  +   2536d ago
For the last time, Metascore doesn't define what a triple A title is.
Oner  +   2536d ago
Funny how certain types don't talk about how many MORE titles are in the red and low yellow on the 360...
ZombieButcher  +   2536d ago
Hmm Interesting I started up Folding and nothing happened just took me to the normal program. No Update
Fishy  +   2536d ago


Things better change.

pwnsause  +   2536d ago
same here, i updated the PS3 to firmware 2.43 BTW
INehalemEXI  +   2536d ago
Same here but I assume it was because I did not download the optional system update yet. So im doing that now.
Kleptic  +   2536d ago
its US only currently according to comments at the source...not sure if that applies to you guys or not...
ZombieButcher  +   2536d ago
Uhm Duh
I am in the US
Sev  +   2536d ago
Here you go guys, there are plenty of others downloading as we speak.

I don't know what the issue is for you guys...
INehalemEXI  +   2536d ago
Im in US just did that system update. Still nothing going to go check that forum thread listed up there in update right quick.
Tsalagi  +   2536d ago
US, East Coast here
I just installed Folding at Home and now have Life With PS. I didn't get the 2.43 update either.

Nothing happening here either, started folding at home, it just loaded up normally, no update.
jpod  +   2536d ago

when i went to folding@home it said that their was a new update.
aceitman  +   2536d ago
what is btw
can someone tell me please
Blackcanary  +   2536d ago
Its not out in the UK yet that sucks.
jams_shop  +   2536d ago
to aceitman
"btw" = by the way
Voozi  +   2536d ago
I'm from the US, and no update for me (on 2.42)

Updating to 2.43 now and see if it changes anything
mattnz  +   2536d ago
2.43 is for Japan only.
It wont do anything if your outside of Japan, it's for some rental service they are setting up over there, it's on the PS Blog.
Voozi  +   2536d ago
I understand that, but what I'm saying is, is that maybe if I update to 2.43 it'll somehow trigger F@H to update

But it's odd how like majority of the people here are saying it's not working lol yet for a select few it is
mattnz  +   2536d ago
fair enough
Wonder if it wasn't supposed to be released yet and has been pulled. I can't seem to get it either.
Voozi  +   2536d ago
Yea that's what I'm starting to think now too, it was released then pulled, and if it was pulled then well...this article is kinda irrelevant atm lol
Fishy  +   2536d ago
I actually thought that it might have been because of me updating my PS3 to the next firmware that I couldn't get LwP.

I guess not. I delete F@H and am reinstalling to see if anything changes.
Blackcanary  +   2536d ago
Tryed that
didn't work.

It may have been taken off the server, or mistakenly released.

Regardless I downloaded it TONIGHT, and so have many others, check out the link.


Check out the video I made for proof...

remanutd55  +   2536d ago
sev is right
i've got lwp installed on my ps3 already btw i live in NYC, sev can you answer postedup question , you think we use folding@home while we use lwp?
Drekken  +   2536d ago
Fernando, go waggle your way back to Joystiq...
pwnsause  +   2536d ago
if you delete folding at home, can you get Folding at home back and update it?
Solid_Snake666  +   2536d ago
yea i just did that but nothing
Qbanboi  +   2536d ago
mmmm.... something is wrong. I get not message of update.
Raoh  +   2536d ago
i'm using it no problem

installed the 2.43 update, went about my business after that..

then i saw this post and updated my folding@home and bam

works great very cool

very very cool


or those using it, it works with your blu ray remote control. having a mouse and keyboard of course is better.

clicking on more news takes me to google news. all obviously in real time.. what you see on the net is what you see on your ps3's Life with Playstation.

just looking at it a glance, you see basically the planet.. with dots showing locations (oslo, stockholm, berlin, paris, dublin, new york, denver, hawaii, tokyo, ,kuwait city etc etc etc), with weather above each city.

once a city is highlited you you get a picture of the city (manhattan in the night time in what seems to be real time)

a list of current news

more news takes you to google

so far so good...

you can select your own mood music, calm/upbeat etc and your own playlists

when left alone the map of the planet spins around slowly showing you other locations around the world with same info, weather, news, pic of the city etc.. _
remanutd55  +   2536d ago
i didnt know it works with blu ray remote and a keyboard , thats kool , do you know if i use folding@home while a use life with playstation?
pain777pas  +   2536d ago
I will say that this is an informed post that does not seem like BS. I believe that you have truly downloaded this.
CrashSpyro123  +   2536d ago
No Update
I'm not sure what's up with this story, but there was no update to download.
Raoh  +   2536d ago
i wonder if someone hit the release button by accident

i'm reading alot of people dont have it either..

i went to it fast and am running it now, teh screensaver brings up gamertag like window with the song playing, time, and folding at home percentage
TomMcBaum  +   2536d ago
No update in U.S.
No update to Folding@Home is available to me here in the U.S., even after updating to Firmware 2.4.3. :-(

Has anyone in the US been able to DL LWPS?
Sev  +   2536d ago
Yes, I have it, Boston, MA here.
pwnsause  +   2536d ago
