In just four days, the number of PS3 owners who have tapped into Stanford University's Folding@Home project has reached more than 30,000. There was undoubtedly a big boost from new PS3 owners in Europe who wanted to use the console for all it can do.

In the first 24 hours from the launch of the Euro PS3, which is also the same day the Folding@Home option opened up for the rest of the world, nearly 15,000 users joined in the cancer research project. Over the weekend, that number more than doubled.PS3 users don't need to be medical experts to help out. All Stanford asks is that you let them borrow your processing power while the console is idle. The PS3 response is huge, as the number of committed users is more than double that of a similar initiative for home PCs.
