Maybe I'm just getting older and it's more difficult for me to become excited about this kind of stuff. I don't know.
I'm looking forward to this but again... losing interest with each passing day.
It's the massive wait times. It's just not possible to maintain a high level of excitement for years on end. I have the same problem with pretty much all media - it's why I don't like highly serialized tv shows (you only have to wait a week, but you have to do it over and over) or reading in-progress book series. I freaking love The Dresden Files, but I'm losing interest since I caught up on the series and have had to wait a year+ in between books.
