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.

RTFA! You don't need to update console! If you don't you won't have access to PSN, now how many cluster needs access to PSN?!? I'm sure the 10 guys who use linux and play games are mad now, rest of the world wouldn't care less.

First of all, it makes it impossible to get replacements if one (or more) of the machines in the cluster goes bust.

Secondly, do you really think there's only 10 people who use PS3 for both gaming and Linux? Do a quick Google, go read the comments section on Slashdot.. You can very quickly prove yourself wrong.
