Have to agree with you there. I have a 55" that sits across the room (14' away) from me and the PS3 is on top. Even if a cord were long enough, it would still hang in front of the TV.
But even that isn't the reason I love wireless controllers. I think being able to hold the controller in your hands anyway you want, juke/pull it anyway without cords ripping out of your console, sit/lay/stand anyway you want, walk over to answer the door while still playing, etc. is the bomb. It gives a very natural, unattached sensation to the game play. Very comfortable. BTW, I hated the idea of wireless until I'd spent a few hours playing with one that worked really well.
