360. ps3 is missing a lot of games like left 4 dead 1 and 2, witcher 2,and a few others. not to mention all the great arcade games available on 360 that aren't on ps3. this year alone the 360 got minecraft, trials evo, mark of the ninja, fez and dust. ps3's exclusive lineup just doesn't do it for me.
The only reason the Xbox seems to have more higher scoring games is because of overrated average games like Perfect Dark Zero. You can instantly feel the huge disparity in quality between these 2 first gen games yet they both scored the same:

Have you actually played the game? It was a 360 launch game, and I've yet to see any PS3 game with textures even nearly as good as Perfect Dark Zero.. The Gamespot screenshots of PDZ use crappy compression btw. Here are some shots off of my TV that I took with an old phone...
Both systems play mostly the same games, it really comes down to what exclusives you prefer. I prefer Uncharted, Killzone, Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid 4 etc....over Halo, Gears, Fable, Witcher 2 etc.....
Beginning of Gen Sony Cows were all about graphics because they thought that would give them the edge, now they're all about exclusives games. But they lost both battles.
Cows lost the war when they conceded every battle and changed aproaches, conditions were changed to suit Cow Logic and even then they lost.
Now exclusives exclusives exclusives but most PS3 exclusives aren't very highly regarded by those of us who aren't single system limited.
Did Microsoft focus heavily on mulitplat? Yes, but that worked out well for them, and worked out well for gamers.
Conspiracy theorists abound for anti-microsoft offenses, but by focusing the way microsoft has multiplatform games excelled above first party games more this gen than any other. It's hard to fault them for making good investments, especially since Sony seemed to misjudge the market so many times.
So I guess technically, 360 wins for me, though I've got more enjoyment from the PS3. Oh that's right almost everything I would've bought on 360, I end up getting on PC.
For someone who was picking just one, I would probably say the 360 for the great library that the PS3 didn't get like Witcher 2, L4D 1 and 2, and usually the best multiplats. Stack on some quality exclusives on top of that and you have a great machine that this guy needs to play more.
360. Just as many high scoring exclusives as the PS3, XBLA >>>> PSN, and 360 has games like Skyrim: Dawnguard, Left 4 Dead and The Witcher 2. 360 also gets the superior versions of mutlplat games in cases such as Bayonetta, Borderlands, GTA4, Fallout, Skyrim, and Red Dead Redemption.
