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.

... and yet Sony and Nintendo are still in business, while Commodore went the way of the dodo. Their last efforts to remain in business, involved the creation of a closed console of all things.

The C64 success was due mainly to one thing: it's price. It was also sold as a computer, why you used it to compare against a console is beyond me.
