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.

Also there is the matter that it only applies to Anglo-Saxon countries. Most of the rest of the world does not give a sh*t about April Fools jokes, or knows about the concept for that matter.


Not so sure about that as we do have an April Fools here on Brazil as well, although it is mostly celebrated by children and rarely, if ever, it is used to place pranks on customers by companies and the likes. Sometimes you'll see brain dead "celebrities" doing something idiotic in April, 1st - because these people can't help themselves to avoid to do stupid things - but usually it is a children thing, mostly.

Same in France. April fool's is essentially about child playing here, with a few companies occasionally joining the game too.
