'Diablo III' won't have cross play feature between PS3 & PC

If you had aspirations about playing Blizzard's Diablo III on the PS3 and PC you'll be sorely disappointed.

Blizzard forums community manager Vaeflare stated;
“While we think cross-platform play would be awesome, there are currently no plans to allow connectivity between PlayStation Network and (this is pretty standard for most games that have PC and console support).

“As a result, the characters on your account and PlayStation account will also remain separate. In terms of allowing an analog controller hookup for the PC, we don’t have any plans for that kind of support right now.

“Similarly, since Diablo III for console was designed with a controller in mind, the PlayStation version of Diablo III will not support USB mice or keyboards.”
I really think Blizzard and Sony missed an opportunity by not featuring the cross-play feature between the PS devices and the PC. If Valve can do it why not Blizzard?
