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.

So what you're saying, is if some disgruntled PS3 owner doesn't just contemplate a class action lawsuit but also reports Sony to the IRS, Sony might be owing millions of dollars in back taxes and tarriffs?

Hey, it worked for Al Capone, why be original?
