Sony’s released PS3 Firmware 3.21, removing the option to use other operating systems on the machine.

The updates removes the option from the older “phat” PS3 consoles, and is mandatory. You can salute your poor little penguin now.

Sony said this week that it had taken the decision to nuke Linux from PS3 thanks to “security concerns”.
