Have both, like my PS3 more. Just does more for me with Blu-Ray, out of the box wifi, out of the box rechargeable controller, free online.
However, I totally agree with Matt Young and what it comes down to.

PS3 by a mile.
360 seems to be a lot better for in game chatting and hooking up w buddies etc...
but overall...ps3 is like a one device does everything unit.

Thanks everyone for the helpfull insight! What worries me is the red ring of death thing that I have read about. Im afraid of it breaking down on me,does ps3 have any issues like that?

Yes. It's called the Yellow Light of Death. I have no idea what the failure rate is compared to 360 units. The funny thing is, people complain about the 360 breaking, but there were exponentially more PS2 systems which failed than there are 360s. The 360 failure rate is less than 10%, and you get a 3 year warranty. Also, I had to send in my PS3 for repairs twice between when I bought it in December 2006 through March 2010.

I've had my 60gb PS3 since December 2006 also and have never had a single problem with it. Not sure if X-Box has fixed the red ring problem yet, but if not then you'd be safer going with the Playstation. I haven't really heard anything on PS3's breaking as often as 360's, but 360 has more games to choose from. Playstation has free online play, but 360 lets you play music no matter what you are doing. Playstation doesn't let you just straight up play music during a game, which is lame.
It's really about what you prefer, but like I said...you will be happy with either.

i have both, but use the 360 most. i prefer the "feel" of the controllers more. they are a little bit bigger and are more comfortable in my hands. when i use the ps3 my hands seem to cramp up after a short time.

I have the lowest gb model of the xbox...I am not a huge gamer(yet) and I don't plan on downloading movies. Why would I need an external hard drive and how good is the current 250 gb version?
