the 360 also has a larger catalogue of DLC both arcade games and additional content for games. those who say the PS3 has an edge graphically may be correct, but haven't had it shown yet. the main edge is that the ps3 has bluray, which unless you have an hd tv is not an advantage unless you plan to upgrade soon, both consoles upscale dvds via HDMI.
price wise a 360 from gamestops site is $370 60gb harddrive +wireless adaptor
nd a PS3 same site $400 80gb harddrive
for the 360 the 60gb is more than enough space and includes the option to save a couple of games to the harddrive (new feature)

I've never seen a 60 gig 360
Anyway, I'm not the kind of person who plays online every day, which I would have to be if I was willing to pay for it.
I think the wii is pretty good online, personally.
It's just the lack of games that gets me.
