Apparently there is some class action lawsuit about a security flaw in the PS3. If you bought an original PS3, you can apply for the refund here. You must have purchased from an authorized seller, and you will need to provide your PSN username and the PS3s Serial Number. More detail inside the link

it's not about security. It's about other OS. Probably disabling hacking exploits :wink:

The next system software update for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system will be released on April 1, 2010 (JST), and will disable the ?Install Other OS? feature that was available on the PS3 systems prior to the current slimmer models, launched in September 2009. This feature enabled users to install an operating system, but due to security concerns, Sony Computer Entertainment will remove the functionality through the 3.21 system software update.

I might try this. I do have an old PS3 and haven't even used it since roughly 2009-2010.

Man, I wish I was one of the attorneys on this case.
