I still remember when the PlayStation 3 was first teased, dual HDMI outputs, PS2 compatibility, tonnes of USB ports, Folding@Home support and oh so much more - well, one-by-one those features are being taken away.
Sony have taken to their PS3 software update post, announcing that the Folding@Home service would go into retirement next month when the PS3's 4.30 update arrives.
Folding@Home ties into Stanford University's work on protein folding and research into causes of diseases like Alzeihmer's. Until now, it had reached 15 million PS3 owners, which offered the second greatest contribution, only to have Windows machines beat them. PS3 owners have added 100 million computation hours into the research project.
