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.

While this does effect consumers the large cluster used as server farms mostly use special firmware provided by sony that removes the ability for the consoles used in to play games in exchange for removing most of the hypervisor limits

Is this a fact or is it just something you assume? I've never seen any mention of such except for random people assuming such, no cluster operators/administrators etc have ever mentioned anything even remotely like it.
