I have news for you - news from 2007 that is:

WEP encryption can be cracked in under a minute. And I couldn't find 
anything about the necessity of PS3's. From the original paper:

| The required computational effort is approximately 2^20 RC4 key setups,
| which on current desktop and laptop CPUs is negligible. 

Could it be you meant WPA instead of WEP?
