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.

Firmware version is no where near number stated.

Its a good way of finding out how peaved people would be before you do it. Ie testing the waters.

Special firmware my ass. There is a crack in the Playstation firmware that allows you to access all the hardware.
