All PS3 owners by now shall be receiving the Firmware 3.21 update provided they logged into the PlayStation network. Once the update is seeded, it will surprisingly remove the ‘Install Other OS’ feature that until date allowed the PS3 owners to install Linux based games in the past. The PS3 Slim already has ignored the feature citing safety concerns and now this update will remove the feature from the existing PS3 consoles.
Sony intends to make the gaming console more secure and though the PS3 owners may be annoyed at this step upfront, it is only going to benefit them in the future.
Just in case, the PS3 owners decide to ignore the v3.21 update, they will then loose access to PSN and all future games and movies that will require this firmware installed precisely. [via: Engadget]
