Won a PS3, should I keep it?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Will your kids 'grow out' of the Wii? Maybe, depends on how old they are, but the PS3 does cater to a different demographic than the Wii does.
I happen to have a PS3 and a XBOX 360 and find room for both of them in my life, though I am an avid gamer though .

As to the Wii -if you don't have Wii Fit, it's worth buying and getting all family members into some basic fitness routines.

Personally, I chose the Xbox for a variety of reasons. Their live system has been around longer and is more robust (to say nothing of never being out of order for days on end). Oh yeah - and my daughter wanted to play Halo

Like other have said, you can play bluray discs, stream using the Netflix client (which has a kids theme), Amazon OnDemand, Hulu Plus, stream your Plex library, download media from Playstation store, etc.
I buy an occasional game and download many demos but never use the music or picture options (well...I might have streamed pics from my computer once).
I also use my harmony remote with it, ftr, which is nice.
