[News] [PC] [PS3]

Apparently there are only 30,000 to 40,000 PS3 owners who have joined the [email protected] project. Considering that Sony claims several million PS3s are in the marketplace I find this a meager percentage. So put those idle consoles to use gamers!

Current statistics by platform are as follows: 1.6M Windows clients, 1M Mac OS, 220,000 Linux and 40,000 PS3.

The PS3 project, which kicked off earlier this month, is being conducted by Stanford University and uses the power of the PS3's Cell chip to calculate data. By utilizing the Cells of thousands of consoles world wide, researchers hope to find out more about the causes of diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, cystic fibrosis and cancer.

According to the latest statistics, nearly 40,000 PS3 CPUs are linked with the project - and more than 30,000 have been actively performing calculations in the last 50 days.

That figure stood at just under 15,000 on Friday, and has likely been boosted by new sales of PlayStation 3 following the console's European launch.

So to help things move along I have founded the Generation: Gamerz [email protected] Team today. The team number is 60649 and all you need to do is input it into your [email protected] application to include your stats in our team.

So join in the fight for survival and help make a difference, after all your PCs and PS3s need something to do while you are sleeping off the twelve-hour gaming marathon.
