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 C64s success was mainly its openness, that ANYONE could sit down and type programs into that "READY" prompt ! It INVITED us to it !

I grew up in that era and know it firsthand .. !
Even the Amiga was not as good as C64 .. Even then devtools and manuals cost an arm and a leg.
