The hope->hype->reality check->rage is very common in this industry, and it devours good but not great games due to the PR machine and fanboyism in the industry. I think it's one of the biggest mistakes Sony PR does, their games are (IMO) just under Nintendo's in quality, but the constant hype created in forums by their fans, helped by focus groups, make lots of people angry when they discover that the game they have been waiting several years isn't the OMG best game evah! they thought it was going to be.
