i'm guessing ok i have no info to back this up but i think it may be too late to make heavy changes to the system minor things like the contollers could be changed though the thing about 802.11n is it would also drive the costs of the ps3 up,

i don't think it will b added, but seeing as sony is putting everything and the kitchen sink it may b possible.  I dont think it would make that big of a deal.

According to wikipedia.org 802.11n is significantly faster than 802.11a.

802.11a maximum raw data rate of 54 Mbit/s
802.11b maximum raw data rate of 11 Mbit/s
802.11g maximum raw data rate of 54 Mbit/s
802.11n throughput will be at least 100 Mbit/s

Ok, so I'm mistaken, but may I ask you where you're getting that 100mbps connection?

The only thing I can only think of is transferring large files (HD movies) from your computer to your Playstation 3. Other than that it's kinda useless.

They got a USB port right?  Just like the Xbox 360 they'll support whatever they don't have on the system with the USB ports
