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 Air Force bought +300 PS3s to do research using Linux and other goverment agencies and private businesses bought because they were able to run linux on it...and now Sony instead of taking afvantage of it opted to shoot itself in its foot.

Bravo, Sony!
