With this generation console multi platform games were very uneven more down to lazy programming.
But if the information is right about the next generation things i think will be very close as both are supposedly are going to using AMD processors.
Which means there will no excuses for lazy programming it would just point to deliberate sabotage of making one inferior to the other.

My 360 sits in the corner and is only switched on every few months for a hour or two whereas my PS3 is on every day and I get all games for the PS3 the only ones I get for the 360 are Gears and Halo.So for me I just have a preference for the PS3 the 360's main puling power was the online side of things is better than the PSN which is a load of Bull.
I have experienced as much if not more lag on the 360 than I have ever had on the PSN plus the PSN is free.As for sales there is not much of a difference any longer and now that the PS3 is affordable for people more and more are picking up the PS3 over the 360.
With all that said if my PS3 packed up in the morning I would Not pick up another one , reason being I'm on my 3rd from launch day and I'm still on my 1st 360 ,plus with all the rumours regarding a PS4 and a Xbox 720 for next year it would make more sense to wait in my opinion.
Remember the BluRay V HD DvD war Microsoft were miles ahead with that one according to their so called sales figures at the time , What happened there Opps Microsoft actually did not sell as many as they thought they sold someone in the office added a few zero's here and there accidentally .

I was chatting to a chap in the pub last night and the conversation turned to gaming for a while, I think because he's into MMO's on his PC.
I asked him, since he's a fan of EVE, if he's consdering getting a PS3 for Dust 514. He said that he wouldn't get a PS3 because there are no games for it. I mentioned games such as Uncharted and God of War to name a few, his pithy response to that was 'Nah, I don't like those first person shooters'
His brother then chipped in, he agreed. I asked them both what the weather is like in 2007.

Yeah, I guess my point is that mud can stick and a lot was thrown around back then. I don't think Sony ever did enough with their advertising to reverse that trend that seems to have perpetuated for a minority.
Of course I could be wrong

i think its just becuse xbox was a lot cheaper than ps3 for a long period of time, theres the costs of being online but i guess people dont think about that when they are in the shop deciding which one to buy.
Honestly cant think of any other reason, apart from maybe patriotism as far as the us is concerned, theres not a lot of difference in specs, and games wise, ps3 usually has the better exclusives.
x box had a couple of nice fps games i suppose.

I think it was because the Xbox 360 was the first to the market.
A lot of people bought one, made friends on Xbox Live etc and they just stuck to the 360.
Xbox LIve is another reason, sure you have to pay for it but its far easier to game and chat wit friends over Xbox Live than it is PSN . Personally I like PSN because its free and chat parties have not yet ruined the banter of online gaming on PS3.
Myself personally I prefer my PS3 but because all my friends play 360 I game on there a lot more.

The digital foundry painted a very bad picture of the ps3 framerates, 12 in place. It doesnt matter to me because im buying the PC version to run on a decent 60 fps all maxed out
You on about this?
If so here's proof they are not to be trusted.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVzPEQKplzU
