Is Tekken 6 better on PS3?

Because the PS3 version has outsold the Xbox 360 version by Miles.

I'd bet control quality (ie the 360's dpad), and that everyone was used to playing Tekken on Playstation controllers was the factor involved.  I wish I had gotten T6 on PS3 instead of 360 for that reason...

I wanna know because when I get my PS3 I want to know which is the better choice.

The PS3 has better D-Pad Controls, but I still had a lot of fun with my 360 copy.

I'm going to use my stick when I get it for Xbox 360.  I heard the loading times were bad on PS3.

gotta do HDD installation (about 2 GB)
 
brings loading times to about 360 version installed on HDD  (360 is two seconds faster or something like that)

Its most likely more to do with Tekken being on the Playstation forever, so people are used to playing it on that system, with that controller. I know I am.

You are taking these observation from someone who has both Consoles.  Here are the pros and cons.
 
I owned a 360 from Jan 2009 to Dec 2009.   
Pros:  
- Cheaper 
- Almost everyone has a working headset/mic.
- Voice chat is clear.  
 
Cons:
- Paying for Xbox Live :(
- Cannot "Roam Freely in Scenario Campaign mode, have to side step all the time.  Up, Up, Left, Left, Down, Down, Right,Right just to MOVE. 
- Buggy Errors like "Failed to Join Session."
- NOT MANY TEKKEN 6 players!  Nothing sucks like losing to the same damn person 5 times in a row in ranked match.  There is not much variety in players, like 10 new every hour.  You create a session in lobbies and nobody joins in hours.   This was during when the game first came out.
- Eddy/Christie like 50% of the time
- Ranked is too easy
- my stupid buddy icon doesn't show
- controller sucks. had to use street fighter iv fightpad

A PS3 from Dec 2009 to present.
 
Pros:
- native to Tekken 6, LOTS OF PLAYERS. like 40 new every hour.
-  Do not face the same person all the time, more variety of characters.
- Ling, Yoshimitsu, heihachi are some rare ones. 
- My ps3 Icon shows
 - Scenario campaign has no bugs, can Roam freely.  
- No issues with connection. Stable. Free.
- Good controller., still prefer fightpad because of the L1, L2 triggers.
 
Cons:
- Prepare for a whooping in Ranked lol
- Not many people with headsets.

The biggest issue was playing against the best players and having more people to fight against.  For such a popular game, it was rather stagnant on the 360.
