The Xbox 360 is very nice and advanced for a console, but the PS3 is still a way better and far more advanced console. The graphics are more fluent, the games are more popular and allow for more multi-player, and the multi-player itself is more fluent the Xbox 360 itself.
I do not find the Xbox 360 to be the best console. The Xbox console was sold in a manner to make money for Microsoft. For starters, Microsoft didn't sell a full package with the Xbox 360, leading people to buy several accessories or add on's to their console and further upping the price. Secondly, in order to use any online interface on the console, you have to purchase Xbox Live.
