Those are the original consoles, it's not really worth comparing those two since new revised versions and slim models have been released.
The older consoles aren't  even available new in store and can only be found used now.

It would be cool if you could find the specs of the latest PS3 and Xbox 360 slimline version for comparison

Personally, i think xbox has the better titles here, but believe that PS3 has the better hardware.

That's true, the PS3 came out almost a year later so had some hardware updates compared to the 360.

The Xbox 360 has the Forza, Ninja Gaiedn, Fable, Halo series and Kinect specialized games (which is a big pro-Microsoft point since Kinect has been received and supported much more then Sony's PlayStation move)

But on the counter side, the PS3 has certain final fantasy games, God of War, Gran Turismo, Killzone, Little Big Planet, Ratchet and Clank, Time Crisis, Uncharted

And yet to come out, The Last Guardian and The Last of Us which should be pretty big hits

I think the xbox 360 definitely had a head up on PS3, especially with the Halo franchise that became very popular.
