The PS3 is a fantastic multimedia device. I loved the ability to load videos and pics onto the system and all of the file types it supported and having a BD player was great.

But regarding the library of games born on each console, then definitely the Gamecube. Even against the Playstation 2, exclusives like Metroid Prime, Wind Waker, REmake, Smash Melee, Eternal Darkness, F-Zero GX, Animal Crossing, Pikmin 1&2, Rogue Leader and Thousand Year Door kept me from caring much about Sony's console that gen. Add to that the predominant version of RE4 and other great multiplats like Viewtiful Joe, Splinter Cell and Soul Calibur 2 make Gamecube one of my favorite consoles of all time. Oh, and Twilight Princess... always forget that one. The only big missteps for me was Mario (Sunshine and Kart). I loved a lot of the games during the 7th gen too, particularly the mighty Bioshock, but except for Uncharted 2 (and 3 to some extent) and Metal Gear Solid 4, there wasn't a whole lot that stood out to me that I could only get on the PS3.
As a pure games machine, the Cube wins this one pretty easily for me.
