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.

The CD32 was not a closed console I believe ? Couldnt everyone get the devkit ?

However it was severly limited, having virtually no IO except the CDROM out of the box, although it was later made a couple of extensionkits that made it into a regular A1200 compatible computer.. Sadly Commodore went bust before these expansions gained any large userbase..
