    PS3 System Software Update (v4.30) coming Oct. 23

    Next Tuesday, October 23rd, we will be releasing a new system software update for PlayStation 3 (version 4.30). With this update we have made several changes to how Trophies are displayed on your PlayStation 3. The Trophy Collection will now reside under PlayStation Network on the XMB. Trophies that you have earned playing PlayStation Vita games are now displayed on your PlayStation 3. You will also be able to see your Trophy level and progress towards the next level while viewing your trophy collection.

    By the beginning of November 2012, we will retire the services available through the Life with PlayStation application. In conjunction with its retirement, we will stop offering the Life with PlayStation application to new users with the 4.30 update. This includes the conclusion of our participation with Stanford University’s [email protected], a distributed computing project aimed at understanding protein folding, misfolding and studying the causes of a variety of diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s as well as various cancers.
    We’d like to thank the more than 15 million users that have participated in the program since it started on PS3 in 2007. PS3 users have donated in total more than 100 million computation hours to the [email protected] project to date, and as a result, contributed greatly to Stanford University’s Alzheimer ’s disease research. Considering the contribution PS3 has made to the project, we decided to retire it as a result of discussions with Stanford University.
    Vijay Pande, [email protected] research lead at Stanford University, had this to say about your contributions:
    “The PS3 system was a game changer for [email protected], as it opened the door for new methods and new processors, eventually also leading to the use of GPUs. We have had numerous successes in recent years. Specifically, in a paper just published in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, we report on tests of predictions from earlier [email protected] simulations, and how these predictions have led to a new strategy to fight Alzheimer’s disease. The next steps, now underway at Stanford, are to take this lead compound and help push it towards a viable drug. It’s too early to report on our preliminary results there, but I’m very excited that the directions set out in this paper do appear to be bearing fruit in terms of a viable drug (not just a drug candidate).”

    Finally. Who even used that crappy Life with PlayStation thing anyway? I can’t wait for the 4.30 update for the trophy improvements though.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    The only updates there are the removal of Playstation Life (which I never downloaded), the inclusion of your Trophy Level without needing to check your profile/online, and Vita. Should be a worthwhile firmware update.

    Don't have a Vita myself but this seems like the best software update the PS3 has gotten in awhile.

    So, not only are they moving my fucking trophies, but they're also removing the [email protected] app? Guess this update wouldn't be completely useless if I tossed money down the drain to purchase a Vita.

    While I am happy that Vita is finally getting added in, it won't really matter if it still takes an hour to view your friend's trophies. I would rather just come to this site to see my friend's trophies where it loads in seconds.

    Also moving my trophy list to the network tab is stupid. Sometimes I will pause the game to check the trophy list out and for that I just have to move up a couple of spots. Now I have to scroll over to the network settings? I know that isn't a big deal, but it wouldn't be a big deal to just leave it where it is.

    So I am not opposed to this update, but there really isn't anything here that has me jumping for joy.

    Actually nothing is being moved, only added. Under your trophy collection in the "Game" section of XMB will be your trophy level and percentage supposedly as well.

    Like Mayus says, why move it? But that's superficial anyway.

    Now if they gave us an option to delete 0% games, or perhaps even games with <5 trophies or some other arbitrary number, THAT would really impress me.

    I use it a lot. And, I'll miss being able to see what's going on in other parts of the world.

    It's ok I guess, but I don't have a Vita and I like where my trophies are now so... The should include the option of removing games from your trophy list
