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.

Dude, there are no rules for april fools. Well, just one, it has to involve april 1st as a date. That's it.

However, this isn't funny enough or provocative enough to be a good joke. So its either a lame april fools joke, or real.

So does Sony have a really bad sense of humour or are they just sadistic? Really tough to determine the answer to that one. Asked in the absence of any other context its a toss up.
