As far as specifications (performance), they are nearly identical. Both the PS3 and Xbox have a 3.2 GHz processor, the Xbox has 512 MB of RAM, while the PS3 has the same amount of ram, but half of it is dedicated to graphics (good thing). One major deciding factor between the two is multiplayer. The PS3 allows you to use the PlayStation Network for free while you have to pay for a subscription to Xbox Live. As far as the controllers, they are nearly exactly the same except for the D-pad and left joystick are swapped, the button names, and the exact shape. Really its a matter of preference about the games, and whether you mind paying a monthly or yearly subscription for your multiplayer needs. Personal preference: PlayStation 3, though I don't own either, I have friends who have both and i just prefer the interface of the PS3
