It's a complex decision... I would recommend the ps3 first as it's my preference, and to my knowledge there are more playable games for it. I could, however, be terribly mistaken and to all xbox360 fans I appologize if that is the case. But the ps3 has a pretty straightforward interface, and the controller is great in your hands. I've personally always found the xbox controller a bit too bulky... and the buttons aren't to my style. But to each their own, and the xbox360 does have some amazing games for it.

Having said that, the ps3 has a lot of games as well... most of them are available on the xbox360 as well, so whatever system you choose won't likely affect your selection of games. Both the consoles allow you to download games that are either made by small companies or in some cases bigger ones, as well as remakes of old classics such as bionic commando for the nes. The xbox360 allows you to do this and pay for the games through the computer, whereas the ps3 requires sighted assistance. So if you want to buy things off the console store, consider that as well before you choose. Here are a few games I'd recommend you starting out with.

Super Street Fighter IV
Soul Calibur IV
Rock band series of games... which you need instruments for. So unless the site you use offers those with the game, best wait for those. grins.
Any other fighting games you see up there.

Keep in mind that just because it's the first time you're choosing a console doesn't mean you have to jump right to the present generation. You can get a ps2 as well which, although older, has just as many if not more games blind people can play. So look at your options and do a bit of research. Personally, there's advantages to all three, it just depends on what you're looking for. If you want to play online but don't want to pay to do so, then the ps3 is the way to go. If you have any more questions, feel free to let me know. Be glad to help. smiles.
