    Answers are: too darn expensive less than 1% of the world has compatible equipment. And .........it wouldn't be necessary as it would do absolutely nothing for gaming this generation.... Go wired.... It's a better experience.

    To be honest for them it's really just a selling point, and not something they'd get much of a benefit from over 802.11N itself. Unless as mentioned people have some REALLY high end fiber connection and no bottle necks between them and the servers they're accessing (which is usually the case with my 25Mbps connection.)

    You're not going to have any Lag improvement for this as was implied by some.

    Any if you really want this you can either go direct Ethernet or after getting your 802.11ac router, get a 802.11ac AP and set it up as a Gateway to your equipment.
    Great post and it does a much better job at explaining what we're both trying to get across than my post does. In short, it's just not necessary for devices to include the standard as yet. The infrastructure backbone just isn't there yet and will likely take much longer before we'll see the benefits.

    Pretty much. I've never done any online gaming with wireless. It's always been a wired connection. Every millisecond counts. You lag, you die.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.
