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.

OK let's see my momma named me Steve, but you would know me better as SantanaClaus89, or my PSN name, Moosehole. I'm 27 years old and reside in Virginia, about 20 minutes outside of Washington, D.C. Outside of games, I'm a huge sports fan who is die-hard for all my local teams (Redskins, Wizards, Nationals, Capitals).

I've had many different consoles throughout my 20 years of gaming, but I currently own a PS3, PSP-3000, PS2, SNES, Genesis, and NES.

Suck on my platinums:
