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.

You want to keep your customers, right Sony? Then reverse this bull as I know a ton of people that bought their PS3s for this feature. Are you going to give us a full refund? I see a major Class action suit brewing right now. The handwriting is on the wall.

Bad Move, Sony. The negative Press you are getting from this is going to hurt you big time. I have already read one story after another that people are going to sell their PS3s and people that were going to buy one are now thinking twice. Stupid Sony, pure Stupid.
