If you have a 360 and you are getting the ps3 I would go with the xim2 + the cross battle adapter from XCM.  If you just have the ps3 and don't plan on getting a 360 then go with a xim 1.  You will need to get a ps2-ps3 adapter that is compatible with the xim1.  The board has the compatible ones listed.
