PlayStation 3 Upgrade Kills Linux Option

Outraged users claim Sony is removing a feature they already bought and paid for.

Sony is nixing a feature on PlayStation 3 that allowed users to install third-party operating systems, including the open source Linux OS, on the video game console. The PS3 Firmware 3.21 upgrade is available Thursday. [Front page...]

I found it to be a worthless option anyway.

People should be use to this from them by now. I hate to say it. But from the experience I've seen my fellow friends have with a PS3 I WILL NOT get one. I'm sorry they have had to go threw what they have had to endure.

Yeah, most of those things happened to me, but it's still my preferred option for games. I find the controller much easier on my wrists, HD Games, BlueRay movies and a music storage system all pretty compelling...

Not to mention that you can get a new one for less than a good PC game card!

I am not impressed.

In fact, I am a little annoyed. I have the Linux OS installed, and even though I don't use it, it's nice to know I have it for whatever purpose.

Not a happy bunny, I must say. I most certainly hope it's an April Fool's Joke.

Use it, or not, it's all very dubious behaviour from Sony.

Ultimately, they could end up being the biggest losers, as in lose customers in the long run.
