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.

I agree. The XNA Framework is exactly the kind of thing Kroc seems to be endorsing.

Which just so happens to also be the platform for gaming development of choice for Zune, Surface, Xbox 360, PC, and Windows Phone 7 Series.

World class IDE, world class languages and programming frameworks, and indie developer friendly.

Code on.
