291w ago - I noticed this on PS3Fanboy and have tried on my EU PS3. After the updates folding at home is now called Life with PlayStation.

To quote: Life With PlayStation was leaked yesterday, but now it's officially available to download. Simply go to Network -> Folding@Home.

You'll be prompted to download two update files. Once you're done, Folding@Home will be replaced on your XMB with Life With PlayStation.

Don't worry -- you can still cure cancer. But now you'll be able to check the news, listen to music, and research the weather all from one app.

Confirmed: No Video Sharing in PlayStation 3 Home BETA

50°
291w ago - Sony has confirmed that the video sharing feature has been killed from the Home public BETA, and perhaps from Home altogether. The feature first came to light when Home was announced back in 2007, allowing you to go to someone's apartment and watch whatever movie that they had cued up.

Now it appears as if legal implications have got in the way, but Sony said they were looking into adding the feature in the future... to quote:

Remember how you were going to be able to invite other PlayStation 3 owners to your virtual apartment in Home, then watch videos together? That's not happening, at least not in the "open beta."

I got a demo of the latest beta version of PlayStation Home, Sony's upcoming PS3 virtual world, Tuesday. My full impressions are coming soon, but the biggest news to come out of our conversation was that the video-sharing feature has been killed, at least for the first public release of Home this fall.

Video sharing was one of the most talked-about features of Home when it was announced in 2007 -- not only because it would be awesome to go to someone's apartment and watch whatever movie they'd cued up, but because of the legal implications of such a feature that Sony was shrugging off.

While PlayStation Home director Jack Buser said the company...
 

Sony: Life with PlayStation Released by Mistake

400°
291w ago - Sony has told CVG that today's surprise launch of the PS3's news and weather channel, Life with PlayStation, was a mistake.

The channel went live earlier today, surprising the lucky few who stumbled across the update and managed to get it all installed before Sony whipped it back offline again.

The 126MB download changes the Folding@Home app into the new Life with PlayStation channel (F@H does its cancer-curing job in the background while you read the news), but the update is no longer available.

"Today, while testing the application, Life with PlayStation was available for download temporarily, by mistake," Sony UK told CVG.

"We will make [an] official announcement for the service launch shortly," it added.
 

Crytek Seeking PlayStation 3 Programmer

100°
291w ago - Crytek is officially hiring for the PlayStation 3, prompting more speculation (from us) that its hi-tech PC shooter Crysis is heading to console in some form.

A job ad that's appeard on the Germans dev's Web site is advertising for a PS3 console programmer to develop "Next-Generation GameFramework based on CryEngine 2.0".

The applicant must have fives-plus or more years C++ experience and have shipped "at least 1 title for Nintendo GameCube, PS2 or XBOX or simultaneously." What if I've actually made two PS3 games then, is that not good enough to be a PS3 programmer?

The position doesn't come as too much of a surprise as Crytek's already gone on the record saying all of its future titles will be multiplatform from now on.

With that considered, this is probably a move to make CryEngine 2 work on consoles - but we'd still like to see Crysis on PS3, if only so we can run it.

The full job specs follow if you fancy your chances.

Requirements:

• Shipped at least 1 title for Nintendo GameCube, PS2 or XBOX or simultaneously
• 5 or more years C++ object oriented experience
• Strong 3D math and graphics background
• Ability and desire to innovate, contribute and polish all aspects of a game
• Experience with next...
