Playstation 3 has a free online network called PSN. As far as more people having Xbox 360 is absurd. I know just as many people who have PS3's... I for one have both. The controls on the 360 is bulkier, where PS3 has the standard Playstation remote, it hasn't really changed since Playstation. 360 has Kinnect, PS3 has Playstation Move, and the Playstation Eye.
The biggest difference is the type of games they specialize it. XBox tends to lean more toward sports based games and 1st person shooters. Playstation is 1st Person shooters, and RPG's. However they both offer a wide variety of games. They both have games that are only for their system. For instance 360 has the Fable series, Playstation has Little Big Planet.
Best suggestion is to look through the games that are available for each system, and see what is going to have the most games you can relate with. They are both great systems, and I can't wait for the PS4, and the Xbox 720!
Xbox is compatible with a kinnect, PS3 is not. Xbox comes in different colors, PS3 does not. Xbox has Xbox live, PS3 does not. Xbox is more popular and slightly more expensive than PS3. ~ Hope I helped B-)
Ps3 has blu-ray games and movies so the graphics are better than Xbox. They both have online networks but xbox's network is expensive and ps3 is free. I would go with ps3 not just because I have one but because the graphics are insane.
