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.

This machine was sold with the purpose of being able to run an alternative operating—and this was one of the reasons for my purchase. I look forward to joining a class action suit against the company—and filling the pockets of some attorneys. Sony, time and time again, shows how it doesn’t give a sh*t about its customers.
