I could be wrong, but I believe the PS3, like many game systems, has 
trouble with double NAT and supports end node game hosting, which will 
break with double NAT on both ends; we'll see double NAT commonly on 
both end points as we move forward if IPv4 is bothered to be supported 
for long, especially if ds-lite doesn't become more prevalent in CPEs.
