this isnt a thread about ps3 > 360, lets not take it down that road. the OP asked about ps3s, thats it.

heres why i dont game on my ps3-

the online gaming is lacking, horribly. when your in a game (depending on that game) you cant see what friends you have online. you cant message anybody. to play a game with your friends, you have to get together at the XMB and coordinate whos going to start the match and how are the others going to find your match. when your in a game and a friend gets disconnected (or you all do) you have to rinse and repeat the coordination.

there is no standard on headsets. not all bluetooth headsets work 'perfectly' on the ps3. its very hit and miss. not everybody has a headset (which is partially nice) but when your friends dont have a headset it really sucks. some BT headsets have serious connectivity issues with the ps3, lots of static, cutting out, and flat out not working. you dont know what headsets will work for you until you buy one and try it, good luck!

when i got my ps3, i really tried to phase out my 360 because a lot of the games are the same, they both have their exclusives so that pretty much balances out. but once i actually tried gaming online with the ps3 i quickly canceled my preorders and sold my games. i do own some good ps2 single player games to play around with and i do use the ps3 as my BD player so i cant say its a total waste of money. however i dont think that the ps3 is the best gaming system available, its actually 3rd out of 3 in my opinion.
I have my PS3 hooked up to my monitor with a HDMI->DVI cable which I ordered off Amazon for 7$ shipped, if I remember correctly the 360 doesn't come with a HDMI cable either. The PS3's online capability (friends, ect) is lacking at the moment, hopefully patch 2.4 will help that out. I haven't used a headset (or any bluetooth item) with the PS3, usually I just use my Logitech USB microphone and my headphones. By "Nickle and Dimed" I mean the advertisements on XBL, if you pay for a service, there should be zero ads. The reason I brought up the 360 is because it was being discussed earlier in the thread and I wouldn't choose it over the PS3.

PS3 is great. Free online, great graphics,free online, good games (no matter what people say), and oh yes, free online.
