The PS3 Does Less Than It Did

If you haven't heard by now, a new PS3 Firmware (v3.21) Update will be released on April 1, 2010. With it comes nothing new as in added features. What this update will do though is disable a feature, the "Install Other OS" feature that was available on the PS3 systems prior to the current slimmer models.

With this Update, it might be a good time for Sony to drop the tag line "IT ONLY DOES EVERYTHING" because over the years they have removed a few features from the PS3 that some people care about.

Sony lied again boys....

I do believe those Ads show a PS3 slim which never had other OS support to begin with.

The majority never used it anyway so I think most of the controversy is coming from fanboys.

another lame blog, probably written by one of your fellow N4G 360 fanboys

Great, what's next? let's hope they don't remove the USB printer option. lol

...better yet, let's hope they don't remove the voice changer option!

Sony are removing sparkles next another key features EVERY game console needs (but only the PS3 has) and NO ONE uses and very few care about.

LET'S ALL MAKE A BIG FUSS.

Sure the option is nice but what would you rather. PSN and your account being hacked with the possibility of hacking your PS3 or loose other OS a feature near no one uses on a regular basis... SINCE.

To install other os you need a computer, you can install linux on the PC to.

did they? what a spin on everything.

mushroomwig4030d ago (Edited 4030d ago )

No they didn't, why? Because it was never a popular feature.

I wouldn't be surprised if people created this much fuss if Sony decided to remove the voice changer feature. xD

Anything that makes Sony looks bad is a bonus for this site.

I think it does something better...security. You don't see Eric Lempel's PSN account hacked do you?

Godmars2904030d ago (Edited 4030d ago )

Nor do you see pirated PS3 games.

Heck, for that matter most of what the PS3 does do it does it itself. The 360 needs online/XBL just to compete.
