DUST will fail miserably

Does CCP really expect DUST to become a success as a console shooter when player have to pay real money to get better items, is only on the Playstation 3, has fairly little market hype, and competes with the more popular Battlefield and Call of Duty series?

I can say this, they must be out of their mind if they think so. I expect DUST to only last a few months in popularity at most, then players will leave it behind to pick up the next best console shooter.

Whatever DUST will by, I'm not going to be playing or buying it since I don't have a PS3.

If you think Dust is "just another console shooter" then you don't know much about Dust.

Since Dust will be "linked" to Eve online as CCP has stated numerous times, means that it is Eve related so fits in the right section. It would be very biased to take action against this thread since there has been numerous thread discussing DUST on this forum.

However the OP is a couple months late to the Dust will fail party.

No. It competes with PS2.

Also, what you'll be paying for is unknown at the moment.

Very Indeed, considering it was supposed to have been an RTS.

To your typical console player, it will be "just another shooter"...I'm guessing 90% of them won't give a flying **** about EVE Online honestly. I have mentioned it to a bunch of console gamers and their eyes just glaze over and ask "but will there be n00b t00bs and prone?"

Tell that to the average console gamer:

A: There is this shooter, where you can influence a persistent world through your actions..

B: Why would I care about a persistent world when all I wanna do is shoot stuff and lvl up?!


The "dream" of DUST, CCP has, is great, unfortunately the players coming to DUST will probably have never heard of EVE, and wont really care about the "butterfly effect", the majority will leave as they came because they WILL think exactly "just another console shooter".

CCP should have made a PC version just for safety IMO. Also I dont get the arguement of broadening the customer base. I mean they are k with selling us space-barbie and astro-rectum for stupid prices but when we say we are interested in paying for the EVE-shooter they develop, no, u have to buy a toy-computer in which u are not interested in at all (aka console)...

Anybody who's not a mouthbreathing idiot can see the future when it comes to Dust. A console shooter (a market that is glutted with titles) exclusive to the console with the smallest audience is doomed to fail.

Also, console kiddies in Eve lol

Dunno most shooter players Ive talked too are just full of giddy happiness that rivals a missile full of sunshine when I tell them that battles in dust have pernament concequences or results making every fight meaningful its like having single player outcomes on a multiplayer platter.

I hope CCP have the common sense to have already started the PC port for Dust, so that they can release it the microsecond their exclusivity agreement with Sony expires.
