FPS, plus the ability to shoot higher ISO, plus a built in vertical grip, plus...
They are different camera for different purposes, and each will serve one individual's needs better than the other.
I have used both on several different shoots now, weddings, portraits, commercial photography. Except for image size, and potential detail level, I can get just as good a shot from the D3s as the D800e.
