The game is free!
Buy it for $20 and get $20 worth of ingame currency!
It's basically pays for itself Blink

I would be 100% behind DUST if it was on a PC platform. FPS's sure are popular on XBOX & PS3 but as a once-serious FPS player going back to before Q3, anything outside of mouse+keyboard controls are a joke to me.

Strongly suspect DUST's PS3-exclusivity was an agreement made with Sony that somehow made it easier or more cost-effective for CCP to develop it. If at some point the exclusivity arrangement ends, I would certainly purchase it for the PC platform. If not, however, all i can do is shake my head and wonder.

I think it's not on PC because of the way a mouse and keyboard can be infinitely more precise than analog sticks.
It's actually painful to watch FPS gameplay footage on consoles where the camera just pans smoothly, yet jarringly, left to right when someone's turning.
Plus there's the whole fiasco where it's actually possible to out-run someone's aiming, because analog sticks have a maximum speed. Turning up the sensitivity doesn't help, as the camera will jerk all around the place when you want the tiniest degree of movement, so you can forget about situational awareness.
Don't get me started on sniping, either.

Dust on Xbox was never going to happen given the way that Xbox Live works. If you publish on Xbox 360 you have to drink the MS Kool-Aid. Sony don't place the same restrictions on PS3 publishing. Its a shame because, as an Xbox 360 owner, I'd have considered getting a copy of Dust to fill in those times when I'm camped in a station, or don't have time for a roam. I won't be buying a PS3 just to play one game.

Just a thought...

Will Dust have downtime? Will the downtime be the same as the rest of New Eden?

Hate the thought of PS3 players getting a free hall pass and dodging any orbital strikes...and other exploits of gameplay

DUST 514 is going to sink CCP, it will not compete in the world of console shooters. It will have a population of a couple thousand players who happen to be EVE players who own a PS3.

What happens to DUST 514 and EVE a year after its launch, when BF5 and CoD13 launch?


u don't know that, BF2MC had a good fanbase on the original xbox for years... the only issue atm is PS3 is a bad market for shooters it already has lots of exclusives + shooters dont sell well on PS3.

anyways, if dust is a good shooter it will be a great success, we don't know how it will end up until a demo or the full game comes out.


Xbox, Microsoft, wouldnt allow mictotransactions. Hence, its on PS3

Matches are instanced on the EVE server cluster, so yeah, I would expect Dust to have downtime at the same time as EVE.

I was pretty disappointed that Dust was a console title only, I don't have a console and won't get one because pc gaming already takes up too much of my time. Besides Eve I play cod but shooting anyone on the same maps day in day out gets pretty boring tbh which is why Dust would have been cool to play because it's part of a grander scheme.

Um yea... Im not buying a ps3 for one game (there are a lot of EVE players that arent btw so the immediate audience of een EVE players is reduced) and ffs its a FPS :p Unless its OMG spectacular (I cant see that given the buying weapons and ammo with real money - EVE players should see this as a dangerous thing too. If CCP make enough off this what you wanna bet that gold ammo makes it into EVE after all) then all the ADD kids will move on in a couple months. Jaded? Msybe, I see it as realistic.

Dust 514 is the only reason why I haven't sold my PS3.
