Xbox 360 is much cheaper, and has more capabilities.
This is so wrong, I actually laughed out loud. The Xbox is cheaper and for a reason. It is not nearly as powerful as the Playstation 3. There is literally nothing the system itself does that is more advanced, quite the opposite actually. This isn't just one sided fan speak either. I own both, and the real answer the the question is pretty much based on the individual. If you're a muliplayer online gaming fan of war games and sports games, the 360 is the way to go. If you enjoy the more rpg or action games, or are just a sucker for truly advanced graphics processing, it's PS3 hands down.
