Correction: XBOX 360 uses ATI GPU.

Back in 2003, ATI Technologies and Microsoft announced a technology development agreement under which ATI would develop custom, leading-edge graphics technologies for use in the Xbox successor. This broke the previous relationship Microsoft had with nVIDIA and saw a new contractor taking care of the Xbox graphics.

Most of use prefer PC over console for few reasons:
Better graphics and sometimes extras come with PC versions of games;
You can't to high-graphic Photoshop on consoles;
On PC games you can insert some "mods" to re-spark additional interest into the game;
Some feel more comfortable using a keyboard & mouse.
