...Sony is doing this to eliminate the need to support the other-os feature, and the "hack" came just in time so they can use it as an excuse.
Think about it, the Slim PS3 came without it before the hack! They did not correct the internal clock bug on the old ps3, and they won't...
They are cutting costs by supporting only one model, with less features, the PS3 slim. They just killed the old PS3.
I'm amazed that no one came to this conclusion! It's that far off?!
