Basically the way I look at the great debate between PS3 and XBox 360 is this in a nutshell. The game selection is much more vast on PS3 and the game quality tends to be consistantly better as well. The PS3 exclusives tend to be better than the XBox exclusives, especially in the category of story quality. Graphics are basically equal...I've had experience with both consoles on various HD quality TVs and if I didn't know any better, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. If XBox didn't have the exclusive Halo franchise then I'm quite convinced the sales for that console would cut in half. No one is buying an XBox for Gears of War. The PS3 is the ultimate "Gamer's" console...however...the online experience is vastly superior on XBox as compared to the PS3. Although you have to pay for it as compared to PSN (unless you want the plus subscription which I don't feel is worth the money), it is worth EVERY penny for LIVE. So when it comes right down to it...it depends on your priorities are as a gamer.
