You dont need a PC, but to get broadband from an ISP its going to need either a BT phone line or a fibre optic cable from the likes of Virgin.

The only other way would be to have a smart phone that has "portable wifi hotspot" built in - HOWEVER this would be expensive i nthe long run as mobile phone companies charge high fees per MB.... alaso they wont be as fast.

If you have cable broadband in your locale then yes all you have to do is connect the broadband modem to your ps3 via the ethernet port (or WIFI if your cable modem has it built in) and your good to go, the other option is if you have a smartphone (android) you will be able to tether to it via WIFI (just make sure you have a good data plan).
