Haha. Imagine [email protected] attempting to run on 360. BLAM! Instant RRoD. P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
As usual... flame bait... this article is totally unrelated to the xbox 360... heck.. even totally unrelated to gaming which is why the xbox 360 shouldnt even be mentioned... Kudos to Sony and the people responsible for Folding (not only on the PS3) for this achivement. It's great to see technology company trying to find solutions to ilnesses.
I see that you have been taking your Medicine Bladestar great job and keep it up. Back on topic great job to Sony for helping with finding cures for diseases.

Yeah lay off the flame bait. Nothing to do with the 360.Fanboys round every corner. On a different note, great news for sony and the folding community, keep it up! :) mine is active as im typing this.

PS3 fanboy : PS3 is the most powerful!! xbotz 1.5 suxorz!!1! XBox 360 fanboy: I'm gonna go play some games, waitbyeond PSbabies!!! Can we close this now? Not really news is it. Interesting bit of info, but not really news for gamers.
"PS3 fanboy : PS3 is the most powerful!! xbotz 1.5 suxorz!!1! XBox 360 fanboy: I'm gonna go play some games, waitbyeond PSbabies!!" Xbox 360 fanboy: Damn I have the games but I dont have a console. Its with MS for repairs.
PS3 fan :- I am gonna play all those x360 games on my PS3 and the rest on PC ( eg GEARS , BIOSHOCK and ORANGE BOX(on ps3 too)) but you BOTS cant play any of my games (FF13, MGS4, KZ2 and WKS) XBOTS :- OK i will play my games once my x360 arrives from repairs in 6 months. Till then i will troll ps3 threads
This is just flat-out good news. As a PS3 owner involved with this (done around 60 units myself thus far), it feels great. And now with the recent array of stellar games, I don't have to hear "but does it play games too?" stuff anymore either. Lovin' it!!!---12
...I'm happy to be involved in such a great and noble endeavour. coming form someone who has lost an immediate family member to cancer, i can honestly say I'm proud to be a part of folding at home. good job Sony! BTW, PS3 fan-boys and Xbots, please stay away from this topic. This is something that transcends the "Halo 3 has a bigger d*ck than Ratchet and Clank... lolz" joke of a console war.
ive only done 10 units....but we should start a N4G [email protected] group...that would cool
XBOTS "betta recanize".....AHAHAHHAHAH A Morons....AAAAHAHHA
wow im indirectly in guinness
we are record holders and community savers too
last i checked only 70k systems have done folding in the last 50 days, which is pitiful for the ammount of systems out there. http://fah-web.stanford.edu... common people, get folding, help this cause, you never know when it may save your life.
to have mini games to play while folding. I know that would take from CPU time, but im not the kind of guy to leave my system on 24/7. Maybe auto screen saver? perhaps be able to fold while playing music? watching movies? i dont know, just ideas...
This is about helping other people, trolling here is just sad. btw, good job Sony.
I love that! ""The Sony Playstation 3 distributed computing project dubbed [email protected] has been recognized by Guinness World Records as the most powerful distributed network in the world."" .....It came about because ps3? last I checked it was out long before ps3 was invented. As for that a few people are saying its about helping people. folding has been around for a few years, and in that time IT HAS HELPED NO ONE, No breaktrough...ect can be atributed to [email protected] not a single innovation. And if you believe for one second sony asked them to impliment it to help people then your wrong, If sony did then they would take 10,000 ps3s of there own stock, link them, and run a super hyper computer capable of running through folding information faster then all the ps3's currently running it because those ps3's are linked. Sony did it for coverage and thats it.
and just 10 000 ps3s contribute 70% to the FH project. This gives u an idea about how powerful the Cell is
