Why does everyone keep jabbering about the extras that come with the PS3? If I want to play Call of Duty or Madden, I'll buy the Xbox 360 that was selling for $177 CDN at Wal-Mart last week.
If you happen to be in the very small percentage of gamers who need a gaming console, as well as a Blu-Ray player, which also supports Wi-Fi, then you don't really have any other options besides the PS3.
However, if you're a Metal Gear Solid fan who doesn't need Wi-Fi or Blu-Ray, then you don't have much of a choice either. You'll have to fork over $400 too.
