    No, this jailbreak is only needed if you want to play Xbox 360 games on your PS3.

    Of course you have to run custom firmware to run those games. And since you are on 4.10 you'd have to downgrade to 3.55 using either a the e3flasher or progskeet depending on if you have a nand or nor console. At the moment i can't remember which one does both. And you can't downgrade a PS3 if it came from the factory with 3.56+ firmware. You can, In some cases, downgrade a slim 3.56 stock with datacode 1A.

    If you are successful in downgrading you are stuck playing older games that are for 3.55 and lower. You can buy a dongle (that I won't mention cause I hate the greedy bastards) to play 3.56+ games though.

    No PSN if you go this route.

    Is it worth it? That's up to you.
