PS3 will only be a problem if it doesn't work through double NAT
or there is no IPv4 path available.  Homes will be dual stacked for
the next 10 years or so even if the upstream is IPv6 only.  DS-Lite
or similar will provide a IPv4 path.  The DS-Lite service can be
supplied by anyone anywhere on the IPv6 Internet that has public
IPv4 addresses.
