I was never a fan of the PS1 or the PS2, there where/are a lot of great games for them, but I just did like the systems. On the other hand I loved the Xbox from day 1, so when the new Gen consoles came out and I could only afford 1 I stuck with the Xbox have not looked back once. I would make the same choice now, and yes I have played games on the PS3 and yes it is 1 hell of an impressive piece of hard ware, but I'll take the 360 any day of the week. Xbox live works great & you can stream netflix. I think a lot of it is personal prefrance but for me it's the 360!
