New Console Help

I am trying to figure out what system I should get, because the only systems I have are my Gamecube, and my PSP, and I really want to get a new system.

It's between the Xbox 360, and the Playstation 3. I can't decide on which one I should get. Two of the games I want, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and TNA iMPACT!, are available for both consoles, although TNA comes out later next year.

Now, I'm really kind of a Playstation fan, being as I had an original Playstation, and pretty much all my cousins had Playstation 2's. Not to mention my PSP, and relatively good sized amount of games for it.

A couple of my friends had Xbox's, but I hardly ever played on them. I just found the button scheme to be a little bit confusing. I have played on the 360 once or twice, mainly at my graduation party, they had a couple of them available for us to play on, so I played a little Smackdown vs. Raw 2007 on it.

I find the Playstation 3 easier to play, at least for me, just because the controller doesn't gain to many buttons. It's been pretty much the basic buttons ever since PS1. So I find it easy to pick up on the games of the Playstation 3.

Now, I have just a couple of questions about the differences between the two systems. For online play, does it cost money to play online for both systems? Xbox 360 needs to have Xbox Live to go online, right? But, does the PS3 need to have some sort of subscription plan to play games online? And if so, which system has the cheaper subscription price?

Any help from you people would be greatly appreciated.
