Sony has finally released Life With PlayStation, its answer to the Wii Forecast and News channels. Ars goes hands-on to see how it compares.
My ex wasn't pretty!
Honestly, what else were these idiots expecting from a news app? The second coming of Christ? Geez, some people hate everything. Like me. Take it for what it is, a fancy RSS news reader. Deal, and quit your b!tching. It seems all the nay sayers are acting as if this cost them a month's salary and it killed their grandparents or something.
That makes two of us =( but technicaly mine was more a one night stand than a ex...
You deserve a bubble for making laugh after a very tough day.
I need to disagree. I am still married...
that was a good one lol +1 bubbles ;)
Life With PlayStation is like your exBox pretty, but shallow Ha Ha The planet Earth looks Better than anything on the Ha Ha Box Ha Ha The Bots bought an Xbox
Hello....there's room for improvement! it's similar to the Wii...more channels will most likely be added as time progresses.
Of course! SONY keeps updating stuff all the time, the PS3 has A LOT of features, it's time for SONY to stop being humble and show off all the stuff the PS3 can do.
A good upgrade to [email protected] It is amazing that the PS3 is doing folding, music playing, web browsing, showing a live 3D globe with live weather clouds...all at the same time. We all know sony will add more cities. They just wanted to get it out because everbody was tripping about it. The Wii can not do anything close to what the PS3 is doing in life with playstation. If the PS3 web browser sucks so much...at least it can browse the web unlike some other consoles. What Sony needs to do is hook up with google and put chrome as the browser or hook with apple and put safari on the PS3......or even firefox. At 1080p on a nice plasma pioneer kuros...the PS3 web browser looks good and crisp to me. Bubbles to everybody above me!
And for people who want flash but say there's no flash update available for powerPC, well...there are plenty of open-source flash implementations (like Gnash) that could easily be tuned up and ported to the PS3. However, lots of flash content is memory-intensive, probably remaining as the reason you don't see upgraded flash capability.
Another article bashing a FREE PS3 program.. ITS FREE AND THE FIRST VERSION.. GET OVER IT.. Thats why PS3 is the better than any other system.. THEY UPDATE regularly.. People need to quit bashing the PS3 and just accept the fact it offers more and for free.. and quit nitpicking.. People hate that they pick something first (360) and feel stupid after something better comes along (Ps3) that offers more for less.. and arent MAN enough to admit they are wrong..
Can you please eloborate on how the PS3 is better than the 360? To me they are even in features. One console does one thing better and vice versa..
He thinks the PS3 is the best system, and you think the 360 is the best system. Don't be such a freaking loser and start crying over different opinions
Lots of things are free. That doesn't mean they have to suck. Lamest excuse.
home is gonna be free :O
My ex wasnt shallow but she was indeed free. Geez people stop complaining.
It's ok but i'm sure it'll improve just like everything else. And you're using [email protected] while on LWP so that's great. Just wait a while and i'm sure SONY will continue to add to it.
version 1.00.... nuff said
I guess the write confused that for version 10.00
The service opened what... 8 hours ago? Give it a chance....
haters ftw aye
This is one interesting feature.
we all know their better than games. give me a break your pathetic. its a video game system and you liek to insult people over them.
What's insulting about Juuken's comment? It's your comment that's insulting.
joe...YOU DO THE SAME SH*T WITH THE PS3! Now grow the f*ck up!
I really like the concept of this application and it is pretty cool, been playing around with it for a while now. Obviously it needs a bit of work done on it to improve but Sony know this and they will add to it as time goes by which is sweet and a big reason why I love Sony. My one and only real beef with this application though is the browser, regardless of whether or not this is the first version and that it's free, the browser is terrible, no way that can be defended by even the most hardcore fanboy. It at least needs the zoom function. In fact even the regular browser on the PS3 I find terrible, the only time I've used it for anything practical is to download some custom themes for psu.com Like I said though, Sony will know this from user feedback etc. and will make the improvements they deem necessary. For the love of God though give me a good web browser for my beloved PS3, not just within LWP but outside of it too.
i think ill stick t the tv for weather thanks much. how bout games sony? remember how you did it on the ps2? the good ol days. dah well. its a good thing i got a 360 you know a gaming console not a frikin weather reporter
besides having both > having either
great games? check (don't even try to argue that you ignorant fcuker) great line-up? check stfu please
interesting.. so the playstation can help cure cancer, now its a werther reporter. now all sony has to do is bring on the games?! maybe in a few more years most of the games are still in beta for like the psat year
There'll be a slew of AAA titles before Christmas friend. Remove head from anus before posting please :)
a slew? wtf? all i counted was 2 r2 and lbp. but if thats a slew to you then ok....
Hey guys, did you hear about that function ? Its called "reply". That's why they have a "reply" button below each message.
presently i like LwP. very cool, i can get my news, weather and listen to music while i get ready for work and it works with my blu ray remote..... i wish the music selection would recognize my media servers :(
Thats not a problem with the PS3 though, its your network/PC
just wish i could pick any major city in the world. I live in Vegas and i'm perfectly stuck between LA and Phoenix on the LWP map. But custom soundtracks, WORLD news and the fact that it's FREE makes it awesome IMO.
So what? You got the timezone from LA and the weather from Phoenix. :-) (FYI I just moved to Las Vegas from Phoenix a couple of weeks ago).
i figure that they made a nice app that works and does what it is suppose to do so why not just release it and update it with new cities and features when they are done and ready It's cool to have something new and it is pretty sweet, but it will be updates which will add to fun in the future. Great app. - Bits-N-Kibbles
While I do agree that it's kind of light, at least it's a good excuse to fold protein.
why dont you check your as$ outa here. great games on a ps3 lol. ok maybe mgs4 but thats it
LIFE WITH PLAYSTATION IS GREAT AND YOUR GAY IF YOU THINK OTHERWISE LIKE THE HOMO THAT POSTED THIS!
(While I don't necessarily disagree with your sentiment, -1 bub for you because you are coming across like a moron.)
you cant zoom into the stories wtf sucks but im impressed with th enews and globe navigation
nah. Its more like a life sentence.
What's life without home? The new update lets me kill 10 minutes on a rainy day...
I'm kind of liking it, except there's currently no way (that I can find) to increase the font size. I've got a 1080p monitor and while it's only 3-4 feet away from me I'd like to be able to read the content without leaning. I was hoping the little browser window would hook into the regular browser functions, but I'm left hoping for a future upgrade.
Does the Wii fold? Does the 360 fold? Do either of them offer web browsers? To me the Lifestyle thingamagic is a great enhancement of what used to be a screensaver. I can't get news on my PC screensaver, so...well..., wtf is the problem? Besides, I like being able to look at Berlin, Stockholm, and some African cities' news. Anyone complaining is crying sour (sweet, sweet?) tears of partisan distraction. When they all can fold, then criticize. Until then, waggle or play same-or-shinier versions, but please find some perspective.
and you get riled up. but YOU juuken are easily the worst person ive ever come in contact with on this site
