This is a tough call - because there's really not that much in it. They have pretty much all the same games library - with a few exceptions. I voted for the PS3, because it has the Blu Ray. Plus, you can use it as PVR. :lol:

Had a 360 from about 6 months after it came out. bought the ps3 around 3 years later. never even touched the 360 again apart from one game (Bayonetta).
PS3 all the way for me, even though I really loved the 360 before it.

I voted 360. I do like the PS3, and it clearly had a decent bunch of exclusives....but so did the 360, and its multiplatform games generally were better than the PS3 ports, and Xbox Live seemed a better service to PSN on most levels. I also preferred the 360 pad, and I adore the Forza series (as Gran Turismo seemed to go backwards after GT4 on PS2).

For whatever reason, Microsoft seemed to have let Sony reverse the roles for this new generation. Although perhaps the "Scorpio" can put MS back on track.

360. No blu ray, but better games, controller and interface

360 was an incredible machine.

PS3 has much better exclusives. Plus it's not by Microsoft, so it's obviously the best choice. And it doesn't cover the screen with adverts. Oh, and it has a blu-ray player. And it has trophies instead of a number. And it's not by Microsoft. And games aren't on multiple disks.

PS3, it plays Blu Rays and was relatively more dependable.

360 get my vote. Awesome machine and probably one of the best consoles of all time.

This is the only close one as games wise they more or less have the same games and the same amount of exclusives

Never owned either, but from an 'outsider' point of view I never saw any difference between them.
