I own both and like them each for different reasons. I mainly game on PC, and will purchase a game for PC before the other 2. If you want more of a streamlined media experience then you'll want to go with the Xbox. Sony has a lot in its corner as well, focusing more on game play and sharing with friends over the tv media experience Xbox was going for. In the coming months, xbox is supposed to get an overhaul with the launch of Windows 10. it may emerge as the superior choice once Microsoft shows all the improvements for the system.
