Sony Computer Entertainment's Life With Playstation service, which allows users to access news and weather from across the Globe, is now available to download via the Playstation Network.

When using the service, which gives users access to data from 60 cities around the world, you'll also be contributing to the Folding@Home project which has helped the scientific community to better understand the development of many diseases, including sickle-cell disease and cystic fibrosis.

The free-to-download service offers an interactive globe, a 3D world map that you can twirl around to see live cloud movement courtesy of the University of Wisconsin, combined with up-to-date weather information from the Weather Channel, news headlines provided by Google news, and live web cam images via the Earth Television Network — all localised to the select city.

You can also play your own custom soundtracks whilst browsing.

Let's hope you live in one of the 60 cities, eh? Otherwise what's the point?
