Games As everybody had been more or less anticipating for months now, Sony has released the Playstation 3 Slim, a much smaller, lighter, and more energy-efficient variant of the regular Playstation 3. There's good news for people who held out on the PS3 because it was too expensive, and there's bad news for those of us who liked the idea of running Linux on the PS3.

Right now nobody knows if this will affect anyone who updates to the latest firmware or only people who get the Slim. My money is on anyone who updates.


As my PS3 attempts to model climate (and has never played a game), this would be rather annoying.

My contact at Sony seems to think the 3.0 firmware update will not (effectively) brick my machine....so I should remain happy.

It does mean that I can't justify my employer buying me anymore (Slim) PS3s.
