It will continue to work, but now that it's officially a dead product there is little point in investing in it.

Sony Announces PS3 Slim, Price Cut, Improvements To Home

alphan No Linux Support? (427 comments)

"Removal of 'Install Other OS' feature

The new PS3 system will focus on delivering games and other entertainment content, and users will not be able to install other Operating Systems to the new PS3 system."

Sony abandoning Linux on new skus means they are effectively doing the same for the old ones.

Epic failure.

Media Fight - PS3 Blu-ray vs. 360 HD DVD Add-On

alphan It is a numbers game (214 comments)

Possibly almost all of the Xbox 360 games will be DVD only, hence gamers won't be inclined to buy the HD-DVD. Plus, for the new customer who is into HDTV and movies, XBOX+HDDVD is not really a better solution than PS3.

On the other hand, there will be at least as much Blu-Ray players as PS3s.

At the end, the war is not about technology but numbers.
