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.

Most likely there Judgen. Basically it's the razors + blades approach, Sony makes money on the blades (games) and not razors. I imagine if they're smart they'll offer an OtherOS upgrade license pack to cover the shortfall, otherwise the long term it means hackers will crack the PS3 since it's more tempting now target wise.
