Life With PlayStation included in Folding@Home update

Life with Playstation screenshot

You know that 2.43 firmware that dropped just now? The one that Sony even told us wasn’t real flash hot – well apparently there was a little undocumented feature hidden away.

Installing the update will unlock access to an update for Folding@Home. An update that adds Life with Playstation to your xmb. So what exactly is Life with Playstation – think the Wii Weather and News channels, with F@H running in the background.

Sony have been a bit sneaky…

Unlike previous updates, firmware v2.43 is specific to the Japan region, and only PS3 users there will be required to
install the update. PS3 users in all other regions will not be prompted to download v2.43.

Users outside of Japan do not need to perform this update if your PS3 system software is on version v2.41 or later.

So there you go, I guess we’re just lucky they didn’t sneak in a Rick Roll.

 

Update: Looks like this was a little mistake from Sony,

while testing the application, Life with PlayStation was available for download temporarily, by mistake.

Update: It’s now actually live. Read more here.

Playing on Playstation 3

Red Dead Revolver - I paid about $1000 for my launch model PS3, so I guess it's time I get some use out of that emotion chip crammed inside. I remember Red Dead Revolver looking rather good when it was released, and despite the low resolution and odd blurring (that I attribute to playing on a HD set) the game holds up well. It looks good despite these graphical limitations because the art direction is so precise and awesome. And it isn't just the art direction, the music, dialogue and set design (for some reason, set seems a more fitting word than level) all work in tandem to recreate an iconic Wild West atmosphere. Red Dead Revolver doesn’t aim to recreate life in the Wild West, it allows our imagination to take over and populates the locale with legendary men and their legendary stories.

Playing on iPhone

edge - Well I never thought I'd consider playing a game on iPhone as actually gaming, but edge has turned me around. The game is built for the iPhone. Sure, it could be ported, but the elegance of what has been created is astounding, it boggles the mind and makes me wonder what amazing gems we'd receive if current gen consoles weren't clones of eachother.

Playing on PC

Sins of a Solar Empire, Demigod, Generals - Zero Hour - It may be a temporary effect as I slowly reintroduce the PC into my gaming diet, but it seems every title I’m excited to play on the platform is either a strategy game, or a cheap indie game. PC gaming isn’t dead, it’s just restricted to titles that require complex input or a pointing device, and games that couldn't be developed or distributed on other platforms. I guess that’s part of the reason the AppStore is so far a success, there were a lot of indie devs stuck on PC for lack of a better alternative.
