carnage Cotto Since: 16.2.05 Since last post: 439 days Last activity: 439 days # 1 Posted on 22.10.12 1251.22 Sad news as the F@H app on the PS3 will be taken down with the next firmware update. On a selfish note, I was looking forward to finally making the pie chart on the-w stats page. http://www.theverge.com/2012/10/22/3537502/sony-removing-ps3-folding-home Promote this thread!

F@H is still working on my PS3, as of this morning. Originally posted by Zeruel Originally posted by Oliver Looks like I won't be upgrading to the next firmware.

I'd like to know why Sony's pulling the plug on the app. (edited by Oliver on 25.10.12 1747) ...on a roll!
