PS3 Update 3.21: Download not an Aprils Fools Joke

By Peter Chubb - Apr 1, 2010

A few days ago we reported that Sony were to release PS3 Update 3.21, we would like to inform you that the firmware is now ready to download. OK, so we know that it is Aprils Fools Day, but it is no joke. Although most of you will agree that the removal of Linux OS is a prank.

Many of you will think that Sony is playing a joke, as this update has no new features – instead choosing to do away with one, the ability to install other operating systems. This only applies to older PlayStation 3 consoles, as the feature had been removed from the PS3 Slim.

Sony said that they have done this to prevent piracy and hacking. When gamers heard about this news they had assumed that it was an early April Fool’s prank – how wrong we all were. More information on the PS3 Update 3.21 can be found at The Gamer Access

    Meh, nobody cares… Move on…

    • Meh, nobody cares

      Lots of people care. Your personal feelings don't reflect the entire population of PS3 owners. Even if those using Linux are in the minority, it doesn't justify the action. Sony are violating federal consumer confidence laws in many countries… these laws supersede the TOS and EULA, meaning the action can be fought. If we do nothing now, how will you feel if they decide to remove a feature you do use?
