For gaming I agree 100%. I always had better online gaming performance when using a wired connection, especially on PS3.
You're absolutely right - when it comes to gaming, stability of the connection becomes more of a concern. If you click the fire button, every 100th/ms counts. With a Wireless connection, there is always the issue of interference, which is less prevalent in a physical wired connection because the ethernet cable is physically shielded from interference.
