if you REALLY hate it that much then sell it, but i dont think you've given it much of a chance! try some other games, there's TONS of quality stuff:

-uncharted series are brilliant
-littlebigplanet
-infamous
-god of war
-metal gear solid 4 (though you would most likely already have a ps3 if you were a metal gear fan, i suggest playing them all in order, they're effing awesome)
-killzone 2

and a bunch of other stuff.

actually, i say keep your ps3 and get an xbox too
they're all good.
if you dont like

ps3 is great if you don't have a htpc, other than that it's a waste of money.

You can stick with the PS3 and actually play good games and have more fun than your friends. Or you can continue to make a very bad, uninformed decision and sacrifice the best console available just to play bad games with friends. I can't believe you are judging it based on Fifa.

Heres the way I see it. I have both systems and a PC. For me personally the Xbox is sort of a waste. 99% of the games I want to play on xbox are available on the PC and most times run better too. On the other hand I play my ps3 a lot more due to the great exclusives they have such as Uncharted, Infamous, and Heavy Rain.

The only reason the 360 is still in the house is because it's my brothers, not mine and he actually uses it

Well, I love my PS3, and I have a few reasons why:

Bluray
Hulu Plus
Vudu
Emulation of Games that I already own (not piracy. I want to play Legend Of Zelda: A link to the Past on my Big Screen, and my SNES is broken)
I loved the OtherOS support, and that looks to be coming back soon
Folding @ home
Netflix

Honestly though, gaming is not the main thing that I do on my PS3. When you put together Vudu, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and PSN movies you have almost anything that you would want to watch, and much of it in HD. I can also use PS Media Server to send content to my PS3 from my file server. Beyond that, I only play PS3 exclusives on the PS3 (Uncharted, GoW, GT, LBP, Heavy Rain, Ratchet and Clank, etc.), but most of my gaming is done on my PC. My PS3 is my home media system; not just my gaming system. It is even rumored that google tv will come to the PS3 in the future, since it is already running on Sony hardware.

I just really really hope that the Homebrew Scene will give us XBMC soon, then I can really use my PS3 the way I want to.

i find consoles to be a large waste of money in general.. it was great in college when I didnt have a gaming pc for 4 years, but since i've been home for 18 months now i think ive put a total of like 36-48 hours on my 360.
