since you put the option of pc as well. here is my opinion...
if i'd were to play a fight game ie., Tekken, Doa Mortal Kimbat. I would choose the xbox or ps3.
If it comes to car games, First person shooter....i would prefer the pc.

Now Xbox and the ps3 are really good in their own aspects but its the games atht i worry. A good game of xbox 360 never comes in a ps3 and vice versa. and i dont mean to say all games since GTA is aviable on xbox and ps2 platforms. But as alwys my vote goes to pc.

Guys I own both and playing both the consoles the PS3 is a bit better as of now. The problem with the PS3 is that as of now there are no dedicated games that were programmed for the PS3 capabilities (or atleast I dont own that game). I have just a few games and my favourite being NFS. But I own NFS on XBOX 360 as well and the Graphics are not that bad on the XBOX. The only problem with the XBOX is the loading time. Its just tooo much. The PS3 the SIAXXIS Controllers are damn light but the SIAXXIS movement games take some time to get used to. Now I am dying to add a Nintendo Wii to my collection. And oh I am waiting for Halo for XBOX 360 and GT4 for the PS3 the only reason I bought both the consoles in the first place.

Pirated games have released for XBOX 360 long back, in order to run them you have to get a firmware uploaded to your xbox.. this process is painful if you dont want to mess up ur xbox360 by doing this u can go to any good game dealer and ask him to do it. In chennai gypsy does it for 4,000 RS but thats a rip off.. Pirated games for xbox 360 are 300-350 Rs.

I just sold my PS3 a week ago as im getting the official version which is going to be released april 26th.

My vote would go to the 360 as the controller is more user friendly,(specially for the car games) and becuase of the exclusive titles like Gears of War and Forza Motorsport 2.

There is hardly a 5-10% difference in the graphics between the 2 consoles.

Mumbaiya: modding the 360 is done is many places in mumbai, but ive heard that there is a high failure rate for these consoles, thats why im sticking to buying original games for the 360.

None of the XBox titles can match up to the Gran Turismo series of car games available on the PS2.

I beg to differ.......once forza 2 is launched you will definately be playing a lot less of gran turismo.
