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.

Your examples are VERY poor: it is a completely different thing to modify something that has already been bought than it is to modify something that has not yet been bought. And here Sony is modifying consoles that have already been paid for and have been in use already.
