We purchased the Xbox a couple of years ago, way before we got the PS2. To me it is the difference between night and day although the newer games for PS are much better then they were.
Technically, the XBox has better hardware. But, it has more to do with the way people use the hardware than the hardware itself.
I'd love to see somebody play an RPG on the PS2, like FFXII, and come back and tell me the XBox is still better looking. ...It wouldn't happen
The 360 runs in high-def, with much higher resolutions.. it's about 10x as powerful as a PS2. Even some of the uglier games on the 360 look better than the PS2.
The 360 doesn't have any decent RPG's which is why I don't play it very much, and why I'd recommend the PS2 ..But, with the games you mentioned, I'm sure it'd be played at your house a lot more than it is here.
There's a couple great looking RPG's coming out in 2007 for the 360 that I'm looking forward to though. Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey. LO quite a bit more though.

The Wi is not even in consideration. Heard to many bad things about the way it is played, problems with the controls etc.
I haven't seen any problems like this, or heard of any for that matter. The only problem I've heard of, is that people playing crazily with the controller have lost their grip and had it slip out of their hand, 'causing the backup wriststrap to break, and in turn, the remote flying across the room.
The gameplay is completely awesome.
If you'd like to see for yourself, they've got demo's set up in all the stores they're sold at: Best Buy, Walmart, Toys R Us, etc.
I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it before trying it out. It's too good to overlook so easily.
