I prefer to play Crysis on my PC with the xbox 360 controller (well Logitech Chillstream, but it's based off the 360 controller). It just seems more natural. But I do prefer my Razer Deathadder and keyboard with Prey and HL2. And as stated above, they DO make a keyboard and mouse setup for the PS3 specifically aimed at those who prefer it over a controller with FPS.
And low strife, kinda irrelevant, but they do make Guitar Hero for all consoles AND the PC, and I've even seen a mini version for the Nintendo DS (that seems retarded though lol). I can't think of any title for the xbox 360 that you can't get for the PS3 or even PC, besides like Halo 3 as you said. But of course, that's all a matter of opinion.
Point is, for everyone besides hardcore PC users, most average people can do just about anything they could want with a PS3 that they would do with a PC, watch movies, listen to music, view pictures, surf the web, jack off to porno, play games, has a media card reader (depending on which version you get), uses standard USB 2.0 ports so you can attach a card reader, or a USB hub, or a USB HDD, attach a supported printer, etc etc.
If you want to get the best money can get and game at the highest resolutions with the best graphics possible, and you have the knowledge and money to burn, sure go ahead and build a PC. Otherwise, a PS3 would suit your needs just fine, and you won't have to worry about upgrading for another 5 years or so.
