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.

What is wrong with the human condition that people assume that because something is due to happen on April the 1st it immediately rises suspicions that it’s a joke!? April fools are only valid when done on the day without prior notice. Oh, and the fool was the one made the joke, not the one falling for it.
