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.

Many of you fail to realize the importance of the PS3 and its Linux OS. The PS3 is one of the few affordable cell processor driven systems on the market. Many people use it to have access to a cell chip for writing code. The cell was also very fast at certain calculations, making it ideal for some clustered computing applications. This is bullshit, period.
