    I'd say Xbox 360, more games and it's cheaper.

    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience"

    I like the ps3 a little bit better, but that is because I watch a lot of blu-rays, hehe. Just see which platform has more games you want to play. For me, anything I wanted to play on xbox usually got ported to pc, so it was pointless for me to buy 1, while there was some stuff only on ps3 I wanted.

    Funny thing is, I probably watch more movies than play games on it, but in general my gaming has been cut down drastically.

    I have both a PS3 and an Xbox 360. I haven't turned the PS3 on in 4 months, there's just nothing I want to do on it.

    I prefer the 360's online service even though it costs money, it does feel a lot nicer and lets you do things with friends easier.

    If you are looking to watch streamed movies from your PC, the PS3 does have a little better codec support - but you're going to end up needing TVersity to transcode on the fly for either one. I still find my original softmodded xbox with xbmc to be more useable for watching shared media as long as it isn't high def or x264 encoded.

    I also bought a wired 360 controller because you can use it on your PC as well - even though the PS3 controllers are USB devices there aren't any official drivers for it and the hacked ones don't work that great.

    I did put linux on my ps3 to mess around with but it runs bad and is useless.

    In the end it just matters which has games you like and if you want to play online with your friends.

    That too :) like I said I use a 360 controller on my PC and occasionally play it on my HDTV - there's basically nothing stopping you from pretending your PC is a 360 especially with the Windows LIVE in some games lol :)

    Yeah buy the Xbox 360, it's so cheap that when the red ring of death happens you can just buy a new one.
