I own all three system and here is what I think.
360 Best hardcore gaming system. Xbox live kicks ass and there are always tons of people online. All of my friends own 360s
PS3, Great Blu-Ray player but inferior online play. Multi platform games seem better on 360. My friends who own ps3s watch movies and game on xbox
Wii, Great Gimmick. Great for get togethers. Its not a serious gaming platform and has no HD. Mine hasnt been used in 6 months.

I bought my 360Elite back in November 07, so far (knock on wood) I have had no problems with the machine, other then the EXTREMELY rare freeze. Turn off, turn on, problem fixed. I've probably put a couple hundred hours on it, through XBox Live and RPGs. Fingers crossed.
To the OP You made the right choice by going with the PS3. Make sure that you give your PS3 plenty of breathing room. I wouldn't enclose it in a T.V. cabinet. I have a launch 60gb PS3 and It's never given me a problem. My PSN is BIGOAK you can add me if you want.

I have a love/hate relationship with my xbox 360. I am soooo ready to switch sides and buy a PS3, but i have this thing for xbox live. It really is great, and I am aware of its faults. When PS3 refines their free intenet service, I will jump ship. Anyone with experience with both interactive internet platforms... does PS3 compare to xbox live? Can anyone elaborate?
I swtiched a long time ago. 360 froze up twice in an hour so i traded it in while it still worked for a ps3. Im not a huge gamer though, mostly madden and blu-ray for me
LOL I'm a bot.
I read this earlier today. Thoughts? Comments?

As someone said, the big problem I have with Xbox is their customer service. I was put in touch with a Hispanic gentleman that refused to give his name and told me there was nothing he could do to refund my credit card when I attempted to purchase microsoft points online and they didnt show up on my consol. Another CSR at microsoft told me I could not change the email address associated with my xboxlive gamer tag. So I had to subscribe all over again just to change my email address. When I call Xbox support, I picture a nursury where the kids are allowed to answer the phones. Its rare that I speak to a competent adult.
i've never had any problems with customer service @ microsoft. i just went thru the RROD, i was actually out of warranty.
i called, got thru to a live person, ranted and raved for 5 minutes about how i wasn't paying to fix it, etc.
he waited patiently for me to take a breath, then told me to print the shipping label off of my online account, send it in and it'd be a free fix.
it's my 2nd time dealing w/ them w/ the rrod, and both times i had no problems with their customer service, other than having a bit of trouble understanding what they're saying at times.

Wish I could have the LIVE experience with PSN on a PS3 console at the 360 price and it would be my perfect console this gen.
As I have stated I have both systems and love them both for what they deliver . . . the fact remains that as far as the Netflix and the online experience XBOX Live pretty much kills PSN at this current time.
I also love how many people act like the XBOX 360 subscription kills them . . . finding a card on sale for 30 bucks for 13 months is pocket change for what Live delivers.
