If a game was developed to take advantage of both, the PS3 would come out on top because the Cell Processor aids the GPU in rendering graphics. The GPU on the 360 is a bit faster, but overall the PS3 comes out ahead because of the Cell.
Not true... Xenos is more than just "slightly faster" than the RSX, it literally is a generation a head of RSX in terms of design and flexibility. You're comparing 48 fully programmable stream processors to 24 fixed function vertex shaders + 8 pixel shaders for only 32 pipelines.
It's a 1900XTX v. 7800GT.
The Cell is aiding the RSX in tasks that would still be performed much faster on a dedicated GPU so just because the Cell is aiding the RSX doesn't mean it'll magically look better.
You're just falling for the hype that Sony created regarding the Cell processor when in actuality, developers have only been able to achieve visual parity with the 360 and not exceed it.

From a PC gamers standpoint we should be able to clearly see that the PS3 has much more capability in general with the better hardware spec, media center capabilities and whatnot.
What does media center capabilities have to do with gaming? Aside from Blu Ray, PS3 is really no better than the 360 in terms of media capabilities. There are a host of media formats and digital distribution platforms that they both support.
And yes, comparing multi-platform games is the only way to compare the two systems in terms of performance. What you're suggesting makes no sense because you're essentially comparing two different game genres using two completely different game engines. The only way to effectively compare the two systems is to compare games using the exact same engine and the 360 has come out with the advantage in 9/10 comparisons.
Whats funny is that most multi-platform games shared between 360 and PS3 ship with 2-4xAA on 360 because of its 10MB of embedded RAM.

There was a news article video on this a week ago.
360 has the more powerful GPU.
I could argue that the 360 has the more powerful CPU as well given that Cell isn't really a CPU and only has 1 general purpose core.
