    I own both.

    The 360 is better for playing games. Hands down. No question. Every single multiplatform game I've ever played on both has run better on the 360, usually because they're designed for the 360 then ported (often shoddily) to the PS3. Its controller is so superior to the PS3's that they're not in the same league, and its online service, though pricier, is accepted as the current golden standard. Unless you have a serious hard-on for Jap exports, there's no reason to choose the PS3 as a game-playing machine.

    As an all-round entertainment product, though, PS3 is the winner. Its iPlayer functionality, for example, is superb, and the ability to play Blu-Ray movies isn't to be sniffed at.
    But what about the exclusives the PS3 has? Heavy Rain, Little Big Planet, Uncharted, God of War, GT5, MGS4. If you want those games then obviously the PS3 is the better choice.

    Although I think you are right about most multiplatform games being slightly better on the 360, or at least as good as the PS3 version. I get most multiplatform games on the 360. The PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIII is better though, as are a few other games. If you have a decent sound system the PS3 version might trump the 360 version in some cases because you can fit higher quality audio with more channels on a blu-ray disc.

    Hey Xbox, how your exclusives doing? Y'know, these ones:
    Mass Effect 2
    Fallout 3 DLC
    GTA4 DLC
    Braid
    And I totally haven't played these on PC:
    Left 4 Dead
    Mass Effect
    Gears of War
    ....
    Actually I can't be bothered listing all the "console" exclusives the 360 has, it's about 50. When I pay for an exclusive, it should be an exclusive. Plus the 360 tends to crap itself a die every so often.

    So I can play God of War 3, Wipeout Fusion, Resistance 1 & 2, Motorstorm 1 & 2, LittleBigPlanet, Heavy Rain, GT5 and Valkyria Chronicles on 360 or PC?
