depends on what you want to do. both languages are very similar and both are potentially cross platform. do you have any specifics of what you want to accomplish.

I must say opinion wise, I feel C# overall is the better language. The only gripe I have with C# is Mono which is the cross platform C#. The implementation is lacking behind MS. So with that in mind if you want cross platform go Java if you want windows go C#. If you want to learn a language that will make you money in the future in game development or just in the regular software dev field go C#. Don't get me wrong Java is great and can do a lot of stuff. I just prefer C#. Kinda shocking with me being a linux junky :P

Tutorials I am not sure. I learned C# and Java through books/school. I can however recommend any C# book by Oriley. Excellent books they put out.

I now recommend Head First C# to anyone that wants to learn C#.
And being a C++ programmer it shouldn't take you long to pick it up with this book. Having programmed in C++ before, it only took me about a week to read through it.

Second on O'Reilly's Head First C#. I'm using it now and it's really one of the better technical books I've ever used.
Borders Books gives 10 percent off in NY btw

At this C# almost certainly has a much better future, due to it's increasing adoption rate in businesses and elsewhere. For the most part the .NET framework is great to work with, plus from what I hear XNA is a good library for games.

As for Java...let's just say I'm not a fan.
