Sony PS3 firmware v3.21 strips “Other OS” functionality

Sony have announced a new PS3 firmware update, but while most users generally look forward to such events, v3.21 is likely to cause Sony no end of headaches.  That's because, rather than add in functionality, PS3 firmware v3.21 seems only intended to remove the ability to install other OSes to the console.  Sony have described the move - which will impact versions of the PS3 prior to the current PS3 Slim model - as prompted by "security concerns", though fail to detail exactly what those concerns might be.  It's a decision that some believe is connected to geohot's hacking of the PS3 back in January 2010.

Alleged PS4 Slim surfaces in leaked photos

Alleged PS4 Slim surfaces in leaked photos

The PlayStation 3 had its slim counterpart, actually two of them, so it seems only natural that Sony's hottest selling PS4 would also get its due. While the rumor mill has been relatively silent on that front, a batch of new photos have recently cropped up that seems to hint that such a console might indeed be coming. But considering how young the PlayStation 4 is in the market, some are calling out these leaks and think that it is too early for Sony to make such a move.
