Diablo 3? How dare you get my hopes up for something awesome, and then squash them!

I thought for sure that when Sony brought Blizzard onto the stage to speak, the company would announce a new ip of some sorts.  My heart was racing, as I hoped to hear of a World of Warcraft 2 or other MMO coming to the PS4.  However, that didn't happen at all.

In a major dud of an announcement, Blizzard Entertainment announced Diablo III will be coming to the PS4 upon its release. I don't even think Diablo III fans care about the announcement.  Why would you want to play Diablo III on a console when you already have it on your PC, which is, historically, better than consoles.

Then, Blizzard clarified that there will be four person co-op.  Great, now myself and three of my friends can revel in just how disappointing Diablo III really was.  Sure, it's a great one-time-playthrough dungeon crawler; you'll get a solid 5 or 6 hours out of the first run through, as that is all the time it takes to complete it.  But, after that, it's pretty much just more of the same.

Blizzard's segment of the PlayStation conference was a rollercoaster of emotion.  First, it was as if the whole world stopped for a moment and my gaming life was about to change, but then Blizz cut me down with a strike of their hilt only to reveal their mundane and uninspiring announcement.

What are your thoughts about Diablo 3 coming to the PS4?  Will it be worth your money? Sound off below in the comments!
