Also the Holding@Home icon has been replaced with Life with Playstation icon.

Apparently the size is 128MB

Its been told that the Life with Playstation update has not been prompted to update,

It also says that it is not prompting some PS3 Users to download it. Anyone tried?

Also is it only for Japanese PS3 Users?
i just tried it n nothin came up
Hmm, no update as of yet, and apparently theres an update 2.43
community.eu.playstation.com/
Nothing here...?!
Hrmr... Just tried both my US and AU accounts and none prompted to update Folding@home... I'm guessing I might need to download 2.43 first... (which I am required to do as my PS3 is JPN)
guys you are getting your selves mixed up

life update has nothing to do with the 2.43 firmware update.

the 2.43 update has been stated by sony that its for japanese users. period.

life is updated through folding@home. now i understand that you may not get any updates thorugh F@H, but downloading 2.43 is not going to help.
OH NO! conspiracy!! lol
=====================
1) Sony announce on the playstation blog that there is an optional 2.43 firmware update which will not affect ps3's other than those in japan (/from japan too..? S0NY? you might be able to check this out..?) so they can keep using PSN without updating.
2) people from outside japan start to report F@H as allowing access to Life with Playstion.

My guess from this is that the japanese ps3's were given 'beta-like' access to the life with playstation service through the new FW. This FW wasnt sposed to affect any other ps3's in any way.
However, there's a small flaw in this, in that although the new FW may not activate the Life with playstation d/l off the xmb (or wherever it is..) it allows F@H to recognise it and download..
So, in other words, sony were trying it out in japan first, and it's accidentally slipped out of the region.. oops!
Umm, its being told that if you go to your UK account on the playstation you will be able to download
Look at the middle posts
boardsus.playstation.com/
New in PlayStation 3 Update 2.43 firmware: It seems like we will at last be able to see and check the much talked about “Life with PlayStation” in the new firmware update. Moreover, there will be a few updates for the Metal Gear Solid 4 and Grand theft Auto IV games.

In addition, there are claims that the Wi-Fi connection problems many people are complaining about will be repaired along with the FFF error shown when viewing profile which are not fully loaded. As before, regular fixes and security patches will be included,

Well, My 60GB launch PS3 has Folding@home on it, and when I started Folding@home, I was told I needed to update it.

ooooooo
looks like you probably got Life with Playstation
may sound like a dumb question but can you still use folding@home??

adrian331 said: may sound like a dumb question but can you still use folding@home??



Yes you can, but you won't get the message to download the update, if you do then your a lucky person.

If you meant by after the update, you will still be able to use Folding@Home and Life with Playstation.

ok sweet thanks for that
Sony has confirmed that new PS3 service Life with PlayStation was briefly up, running and available to the public earlier today.

As reported on the US PlayStation.com forums, some PS3 owners managed to get it going.

According to Sony, this wasn't meant to happen. "Today, while testing the application, Life with PlayStation was available for download temporarily, by mistake," a spokesperson told Eurogamer. The error has since been rectified, and you can't get hold of the app any more. We've tried.

For those who aren't familiar, Life will offer news and weather updates via a swish looking global map. It was supposed to launch in July, then August, then in a bit. For now, Sony's only saying, "We will make official announcement for the service launch shortly."

Was anyone here lucky enough the get it?
Dod Gammit!!! I want it NOW.
so wait...i can't get it now?
Yup! This is really lame by Sony... if you made a mistake, stick to it and release it to the rest of the world...

Here's hoping it will come out tonight as obviously it was uploaded to the servers...

We were meant to get Life with Playstation in July... then August...

Nope, it lied to me.
i think its out now

lukeclem1 said: i think its out now



is it!
i will go check

Yup, mine requires an update
i just signed into my jp account, then deleted folding home then re installed and i got prompted to install the update for PlayStation life
Life with Playstation is amazing
Its very interesting to see what's happening around the world at your fingertips..
i just upgraded folding @ home and now d/l life with playstation.
I personally really like the Life With Playstation combined Folding program.. it will certainly get a lot more people involved in Folding@Home. Whats the go with contribution points though? They seem like a good incentive.. but why should they differ from the regular points system? Just dont get it.(I've folded over 200,000 points so far! lol)
awesome, ill download it now

another reason to sell my wii

is it only for japan account though?
I've got it sorta cool but you're not missing much except news and weateher on a world map if you can't get it!
I was hoping to be able to use the browser while Folding? You need to be able to zoom the window as the pages are bigger than the box. You also can't access bookmarks or browser menu? Shame...guess I won't be doing much Folding after all! I LOVE LwP however...can't wait for more channels.
im really getting pi**ed os with my ps3 , itonly seems good for freezing , it freezes every hpours i cant use ingame xmb , and now i try and install the upate and it just goes all balck , wtf is going
im cosidering seling my ps3 now because it getting to a ridiculous stage , might go abck to my 360

joke lol , ps3 for life
Hmm so whatever happened to folding@home. Say you were in a team or something? And why no BRISBANE!!!!!! NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kjt15 said: Hmm so whatever happened to folding@home. Say you were in a team or something? And why no BRISBANE!!!!!! NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah... what about the MYPS3 team???
Well, got it...not bad, but then again, nothing new as this was implemented on the Wii over a year ago.
Sure the Life with PLAYSTATION channel looks pretty in HD and everything, but my God the Wii has had a very similar feature for a year, with much better features and functionality and which does everything Life does...better. I really hope Sony gives us a reason to select that Life icon, because after five minutes you've seen and done everything.
Sony pretty please for Brisbane to be added and also the ability to zoom right in aka google earth or possibly even google streetview
