I'm not sure what compatibility issues you're speaking of. Aside from the GPU and system RAM (which based on how MS set up the embedded RAM may also be a wash as far as performance despite Sony using GDDR 5 instead of DDR 3), the actual consoles hardware are identical.
I would say at this point (pre-E3), by far the biggest issue is the lack of info about games for the Xbox.
So much time was wasted on CoD in that viewing.
