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.

One thought that does occur to me is that there's no mention in the announcement of if the boot other OS option will also disappear. If I can continue to use my existing installation then no problem, I'm already installed.

You will lose access to your current installation. They advise you to backup.
