I've got both and I've been playing the GameCube more, even after I bought GTA Vice City. Animal Crossing is just so addictive, and I can't explain why. That and SMS just seem like so much more pure fun compared to the darker PS2 stuff.
But I'm not disappointed with the PS2 - FFX, Dark Cloud, and the GTA games have been well worth it. (okay, maybe my assessment of PS2 has something to do with the game selection)
It's been said, but find the games that you want, then go with the system. Bottom line is that this is a GREAT time to be a gamer. Never have I had a better excuse for the constant sitting and snacking

Yikes, that sucks. I had the opposite experience when I decided to upgrade my HD a few years ago. The only hiccup was backing up what was on the HD and restoring it on the new one. That took a few hours since I did it through a USB 2.0 enclosure.
