Confessions of a hardcore (Military) gamer stuck in the last-gen. Need help.

DISCLAIMER - OK first off let me ask for your forgiveness as I'm sure this blog will suck. It's my first time, and I have a real agenda here so go easy on me.

I'm a 26 year-old hardcore gamer who has been glued to my television since playing the Atari 2600 when I was in the first grade. Shortly thereafter I discovered the extreme goodness of the NES. I've had at least one major console in every "generation" since: SNES, N64, PSX, and now my beloved PS2, which I have had for five years now.

I have been "out of the loop" as far as the gaming scene for the last year and a half, as I have been stationed overseas "fighting for our country." I won't get into how I feel about all that, but the point is I haven't been able to keep up with the new console war, and I'm trying to figure out which one I should get.

The Wii is out. No way. It's between XBOX360 and PS3. Problem is I have no idea which one is better. If any of you guys can give me some honest input without being a fanboy and saying "ZOMG (system) SUX AZZ AND (system) PWNS ALL" I would really appreciate it. What does each system offer that the other doesn't?

Anyway thanks in advance if you decide to contribute, and if you don't I understand. Forgive my ignorance. For the first time in my 20 years of gaming I feel like a complete noob. Thankfully this won't happen to me again as my obligation to the military officially ended yesterday.

Happy new year all, hope it's a great one for you guys.
