I have both as well. I spend 90% of my time playing the 360, but mostly because that is what I own the most games for. If I had to do it again, I would only buy a PS3. Reason being that I am not an internet gamer, I like the Blue Ray feature, I have had 4 RROD (red ring of death) experiences, and almost all the games I play on 360 also came out on PS3 or for my Laptop, so I don't think I would be missing anything. Honestly if it was not for owning so many 360 games, I would not have bothered fixing my 360 last time it broke.

PS3 - top rated blu ray player, great sound reproduction from my CDs and MP3 collection, can view TV channels and replay what I missed in my country, access internet for a quick browse. I like the feel of the wireless controllers too. It just feels like a complete, grown-up package to me.

I have both, the 360 for halo and ps3 for the blu ray player. If you're heavy into online gaming then live is a must and you get what you pay for. I've only played mw2 on psn and it's not bad for being free, but the network on live is definitely better.

If I had to do it all over again and if it wasn't for halo then I'd get a ps3. Better hardware too.

I use each one about 50/50. I just jump between Forza 3 and GT5, depending on my mood. Still waiting for my G27 to come in so I can hop online with GT5.

I prefer the 360's UI, but I like how quiet the PS3 is. The PS3 feels more mature, and as a media device it's superior. I'm still of the opinion that the 360 has a strong advantage on the gaming front. I'd be willing to pay for a much better online service is Sony offered one.
