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.

A friend of mine told me that the PSN terms of service include a clause about being able to alter services at any time. Of course, I don't see this as a service of the PSN - it is an inherent and advertised part of the system. I really hope someone sues them for this as well.

Luckily almost every game I care about comes out on the PC, with the exception of some of the Final Fantasy titles ... at this point I'd rather buy a Microsoft product to play games.
