Blizzard tells gamers to lower their expectations of Diablo III

Blizzard have come out on their forums with their Community Manager, Bashiok, and said that gamers should lower their expectations of Diablo III. Sure, some people have high hopes of Diablo III, only because the original two games were fan-friggin’-tastic.
Here’s a direct quote:
“There’s only like 40 minutes of content in the beta, so that’s pretty amazing you played for 7 hours. I hereby crown this game … SUCCESSFUL!
On a more serious note, I too worry that we won’t be able to meet the expectations people have built up for themselves. Part of my job is managing people’s expectations, so… eh… stop it. Stop thinking about how awesome this game could be. Just imagine it’s a new M. Night Shyamalan movie. Sure Sixth Sense was amazing and Unbreakable had it’s moments, but this right here is the sequel to The Village … or The Happening … or Signs … or any of the movies besides the two I first mentioned. So just like, lower those expectations, but still definitely buy the game please, and everything will be just fine. K?”
I’m going to just crawl over to this corner over here, and just cry myself to sleep, K? Sigh.
