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.

Uh, did you exist before 1990? The iPlayer is not an example to parallel how open access to the C64 changed the world.


Yes, and there is a high probability that I existed before you.

You need to read the comment again. I was addressing two points, though this seems to have escaped you.

1) C64 vs Consoles - back in the day, the C64 would be the PC, the Atari/Coleco etc would be the Wii/PS3 etc

2) You CAN use a Wii as a general purpose device.

Please READ what I have WRITTEN before RESPONDING, yes?
