Provided it can actually reach
1024x768 then it should be able to handle 720p and 1080i like most HD-TVs on the market.
Another factor to consider is noise: as someone who has played both systems extensively, I can say that the PS3 is noticeably quieter (and thus cooler) than the 360 thanks to a larger slower spinning fan. This was the deciding factor for me and why I'm waiting until a) the Elite is released in the UK and b) it moves to a 65nm process so it runs cooler before I pick one up.
I'll agree that the RROD isn't as prevalent as its vocal sufferers would have you believe, but still something to take into account. The extra heat sinks they are adding
are a definite step in the right direction, but you can't sure of getting one in a new retail package for a while.
Also, I don't think it was mentioned specifically, but the PS3 comes with a SIXAXIS charging cable (which is basically a branded USB cable, I already have 6 in my room from MP3 players alone
) so you won't have to buy a Microsoft proprietary one which might offset the price difference between controllers if you plan on going wireless.
If 60GB isn't enough, you can upgrade the PS3s internal HDD to a notebook SATA drive of your choosing again removing the bind to proprietary hardware. Guide here.
As said before, you won't be disappointed with either system. Pick it for the games, and if you are still undecided then look at the extra features that matter to you.
