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.

I completely agree with all the things you say right now.

I do not know why they forbid YOU to install anything YOU want in YOUR device; that's quite ridiculous... I know, you accepted the license when you bought such device but being forbidden to use the things I buy in the way I want to use them does not make sense to me.

I do not know if Apple with its iPhone started this trend but I do not like it and I do not want it to continue.
