I hope this BOINC software could run on XBOX or PS4, people have thousands of playstations not computers in US. It's wasting a lot of CPU and GPU time. (they are really powerful)

The Playstation 3 console, at one time, was able to run the Folding@Home application.

Not on the XBox but yes on the PS4 BUT once you do it wipes your ability to game with the PS4 ever again!! I personally ran it on a PS2 back in the day and while it worked it wasn't as fast as people hoped it would be. Not long after that PlayStation came out with the statement that if you crunch with their hardware you can NEVER game with it again, I didn't game anyway so kept crunching until I got faster pc's.
