It's a poor system compared to the PS3.

Just to clear up a few things here:

It's 120GB not 160GB
It stomps all over the PS3 from a great height

That is all.

I have both and they're each great in their own way.

At the moment the Xbox is the better for games due to it's wider range and mature Live support; whilst the PS3 is better today as a media player due to its 1080/24p BR support, the fact that I can connect it to my KDL40D3000 via HDMI (whilst the Xbox is limited to component, as I can't justify trading up to an Elite) and build quality (I too have suffered the Red Rings of Death).

I'm expecting the Xbox to maintain its lead for at least another year thanks to games that are still in the pipeline like Halo 3, Mass Effect, PGR4, Alan Wake, etc. In another couple of years I expect that the PS3 will then overtake the Xbox for games as well, as developers become more comfortable with it and Home has the kinks knocked out of it and becomes established - but for now it's horses for courses.

Righty-ho - I'm off to play some more Bioshock.
