September 17, 2008 // 6:08 pm - 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.

Looks like it's officially out now, no need for the leaked file after all.

Well i tried earlier, and it downloaded Folding@Home 1.31, the name stayed the same, but now when i load it, i get the world map globe, with lights all over it showing the locations of PS3 units processing etc.

It that Life with Playstation? or was that just Folding@Home already? And is it suppose to change the XMB Name?
