Games The PlayStation 3 Slim already had an ability penalty of -35 Geekiness because of its lack of the "Install Other OS" option, and now the regular PlayStation 3 will follow in its footsteps. A PS3 firmware update, scheduled to land April 1, will disable this option on regular PS3s as well. This, dear readers, is what we in the business call a "testicle move", especially since only a few weeks ago, Sony bold-facedly claimed the feature would not be removed.

I mean, they said April 1 right? (hoping)

This news has already generated insane amounts of bad press. It'd be horribly idiotic to make such an April's Fools joke. Though, Sony IS idiotic, but they are not the kind of company to make jokes.
