Windows 7: PS3 ? or stick with PC ?

Outside of exclusive titles, what difference does it make PS3 or X360? But the OP wasn't asking for a console opinion, he was asking whether it was worth getting a particular console or sticking with his PC.

I purposefully bought the 60gb for backwards compatibility built in but apart from crash bandicoot nothing else from my PS2 games seemed good enough anymore, so backwards compatibility isn't a selling point in my book

its not supposed to be a selling point, it is just there for those who want to play PS2 games

I'm not so sure about that; if my 360 and Wii didn't have backwards compatibility with the original Xbox and Gamecube respectively, I don't think I would have bought them as readily as I did. It certainly was a selling point for me. To this day, I still play more of my Gamecube and original Xbox titles than I do the 360 and Wii titles. Damn, I now feel old again.
