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.

this is bad press? i thought bad press would be like you know. a video game system that couldn't play games. or a video game system that crashed and you had to go buy a new one. i mean really. no one cared if it ran linux. and hardly anynone used linux on their ps3.. mostly because it sucked.
