Yeah, as far as numbers go, PS3 has a pretty sizable lead. As far as quality, though? Ehhh... not really. Ni No Kuni and the Tales games are probably the best thing going on that system. I'm not sure I throw Valkyria Chronicles in the JRPG category, it's much more SRPG / X-COM, in my mind. FFXIII and the sequel are on both, so that's a wash, ditto Eternal Sonata and Star Ocean. All those Atelier and Hyperdimension games look pretty bad to me.
The 360 has Vesperia, and that's probably close to enough to balance out the Tales games on PS3... until more come out. Infinite Undiscovery was pretty maligned, as was The Last Remnant, but they're both enjoyable, I'd forgotten about Magna Carta II, and then there's Lost Odyssey. I honestly think I'd choose the 360 over the PS3, and if you throw WRPGs in there, it's not even close.
Still, the most fun I've had with an RPG (or action-RPG, depending on your view of it) was with The Last Story. Between it, Xenoblade, and Pandora's Tower, there's a pretty strong argument for the Wii being the best. I know some don't like it, but Super Paper Mario was pretty fun, the Symphonia follow-up was enjoyable enough, Arc Rise Fantasia is a bit like a turn-based Tales (with a horrible, horrible localization, at least as far as voice acting), and depending on if you want to throw SRPGs in, you've got Fire Emblem (which would qualify Valkyria for PS3, of course). And depending on whether or not you consider Zelda an action-RPG or not (I don't really, but some do), those should put the system over the top.
It's a bit weird, honestly, seeing how none of the three systems are a clear favorite, though. This last generation has been absolutely crazy, at least for consoles.
