Ps3 is a better choice, i have both and i hardly use my xbox 360. Xbox is geared more towards a family entertainment unit, but playstation is better at that too because it doesnt lag as much during netflix, has better graphics, and can play blurays and dvds
They are very different consoles. I would say PS3 is aimed more towards the family grouping rather than the individual. (xbox being the individual.) The xbox offers more war games and games of that nature, while PS3 has more games appropriate for children.
