Hello. My friend asked me to soft mod his ps3. But me and him would like to know wheter or not it changes anything (gui based). I know it will allow him to play backup and disallow him from playing online (he doesn't even have internet) but we are curious.... i ask this because after a little bit of googling I read it will boot in linux... Does that mean it no longer plays ps3 games? Sorry if i don;t know much, but Idon't own a ps3. I have xbox and don't really no much about it.
