PlayStation 3 firmware 4.30 adds PS Vita trophies

Sony retiring Life with PlayStation, Folding@home apps.

October 22, 2012 / 06:30 AM EDT / (@salromano)

PlayStation 3 firmware version 4.30, due tomorrow, October 23, will change the way PlayStation Network trophies are displayed on your console.

The trophies section on the XMB, previously found under “Game,” has been moved under “PlayStation Network.” Users will now be able to see trophies earned both through PlayStation 3 and through PS Vita. The trophy display screen will also share level and progress information, as well.

Additionally, Sony will retire the services available through its Life with PlayStation application, including the Stanford University Folding@home application.

Thanks, PlayStation Blog.

      lol not even. The PS3 CFW scene is on hands and knees just to survive. They should just give up

    It’s about time. This should have been available on the vita’s launch.

    Don’t understand the point of moving it.

      I guess having it on the PSN list would make it easier to go back and forth between your friends and your trophies (which at least to me are the most accessed parts of the XMB) without having to wait through that obnoxious “compare trophies” load time or scrolling back to the game list. Its just more convenient if they were closer together.

      EDIT: They aren’t on the same list though closer to each other.

        Oh ok now that makes sense.

  • PrinceHeir

    yay Vita trophies :D

    Nice. I was wondering why this wasn’t implemented as soon as the Vita came out. You can access your PS3 trophies on the Vita, so why not Vita trophies on the PS3? At least it all makes more sense now.

    Plus, this will let users know you have a Vita as well~

    I hope this makes Vita users visible to PS3 users. I hate when they appear offline and I have to find who messaged me.
