Will end Folding@home support

Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 will get system update 4.30 starting on October 23rd. The big deal with this update is that you can view PlayStation Vita game trophies on your PlayStation 3.

As with the recent Microsoft dashboard update for the Xbox 360, Sony will be taking some stuff away, as well. Life with PlayStation application will no longer be offered to new users starting with the 4.30 update. In addition, support for the Folding@Home distributed computing project will also be coming to an end.

Sony claims that the PS3 was a game changer for Folding@Home, with it being an exceptional way to use the GPU inside the PS3. Over 15 million users have participated in the Folding@Home program and have contributed more than 100 million computational hours to the project.

The 4.3 system update also features some bug fixes and enhancements.
