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.

Sadly, I heard about linux-minidisc after my last MD player died. Moreover, this does not change my opinion about sony : they ruined life of all normal people not knowing about Linux with buggy DRM madness, and ruined a great storage technology this way.
