Well, I don't like to compare them. I don't even see a comparison myself. Of course Prince can play better than MJ because MJ doesn't play anything! He wasn't about that. He is a dancer, singer and songwriter, and for sure is and was the best at what he did. Prince is a great musician though. I love him (well maybe not so much HIM, but his music). I saw him live at the O2 back in 2007 and he was incredible.
