It will work with any recent gaming console that has a wireless connection (Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and Sony Playstation 3).
The Time Capsule will only allow you to connect such devices to the internet via its Airport wireless capabilities -- so yes, you can play games online.
One thing to note though, you cannot use the storage on the Time Capsule for streaming media to your game consoles (like a media server).

just detect the wireless network (from PS3) as normal and enter the password for your wireless network.

The only thing with PS3 is you have to setup your TC's Radio Mode to 802.11n (802.11b/g compatible), you can't set up as 802.11n only because PS3's wifi has maximum g speed only, not on n speed.

I've got the previous model of 1TB Time Capsule, and there's no problem to connect to PlayStation 3, DSi and XBOX 360. I've been using it for about a year to play games online, either via Wi-Fi or LAN for my XBOX 360.

I have the previous model and I do get a wifi signal to my PS3 and I can play games.

NO - there are not enough port forwards to handle most online games
you will be able to connect to the PS network but online games will crash
