PS3 Linux

Sony has released their latest PS3 firmware update today, bringing the console to version 3.21. The biggest part of the update, and the cause of much grumbling online, comes in the remove of the “Install Other OS” option from the console. That means no more Linux, folks. Sure, not too many people actually chose that option, but the ones that did are pretty upset.

Refusing to install the update keeps you off the PSN, and plenty of games won’t run if you’re not using Sony’s latest firmware. So yeah, bummer. Hackers are already trying to find workarounds to the update, though, but nothing’s out yet. Until then, either choose the penguin or choose the games.
