    Welcome to the forum and dark side (rooted). I'm moving your post to the X general discussion section so that other X members can reply.

    A lot of people just use this app for the Droid:
    android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    If you have set up your ps3 to connect to wifi at your house you should be able to connect it to this. I haevn't used Barnacle so can't speak to that, sorry.

    That being said I would not want to play games through the phone's wifi connection, especially not for an extended period of time.

    Hours/days/GB's of data later and if Verizon decided to look at why you did a huge amount of traffic in a short period of time they easily could see that it was PS3 traffic that the phone wouldn't be using, going across their network, and they would be within their rights to charge you per mb and send a huge bill.

    I have never heard of them doing so, but I would not want to be their "example" case.
