Will this affect future development on the console platform? any second thoughts with PC platform now?

It's funny because I don't have a PS3, so whenever I've watched DUST vids I've ended up playing Planetside 2 afterwards because it really has the same vibe to it.. But I think there are some fairly big differences underneath the FPS sci-fi war surface though.

Oh and I do hope they'll make DUST for pc too, would be nice to try it.. and I think maybe a lot of EVE players in general has a pc, and they'd have an interest in playing it more than completely random playstation gamers.

What's funny is I was watching a Planetside 2 stream on The Mittani and thought that was Dust 514 at first, then I eventually realized what it was and instantly downloaded PS2 afterward. Pretty fun.

shelf lives of games tied to console clearly way too long then lol

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

Built by CCP

Noooo Noooooo NOOOOOOOOO

I was thinking about getting one, but the PS4 is coming out in the fall...

I might get that so I can play Planetside on it. (I don't like PC FPS's anymore, wears out my laptop keyboard).

I might download DUST, but the PS4 isn't going to be backwards compatible and I don't know if CCP knows how to move DUST to it

The target market for DUST begins and ends with EvE bittervets who are bored to death with the space game, too "HTFU" to ever play some bullshit kiddie themepark like STO or SWTOR, and were looking for an excuse to buy a console. Within that microscopic demographic, DUST will be the only FPS anyone would ever play. People who don't give a crap about and have never heard of EvE will play it for thirty seconds, uninstall, and never look back.

EvE is supposed to suck.  Wait . . . what was the question?

Probably should have just waited to port it on the PS4 so they could've use that Unreal Engine that was originally intended.

it might not happen right away but it will be converted to the PS4, it would be seriously stupid of CCP to release a game they expect to keep going along side eve right at the end of a consoles life and throw away 5 years of funding plus whatever it cost them for the eve side changes

True, but the question should be if DUST's profit potential warrants more development given it's performance in 2013 and in light of recent news, the Planetside juggernaut will be there waiting for it.

Planetside is the most direct competitor I could imagine. What is DUST's selling point when compared to Planetside 2?

I just want to point out that FPS games are probably the worst possible games to play on a console. Controllers + real time precision aiming = massive incomprehensible failure. For the love of god, get Planetside on pc. It's worth a worn out laptop keyboard.

Big smile It's new though, maybe after I spill a few things on it I won't care anymore.

no idea what the profits are but being f2p i'm sure it's making a decent bit, really they just need to do some advertising but CCP has never been great at that

dust has better gameplay imo, PS2 is a lot bigger scale but i'm not sure how far they will have to bring that down to work on console hardware, it's already fairly laggy on even beefy PCs

also the skill system is much different and really PS2 has way more p2w then dust, honestly when you compare them PS2 becomes more for the COD type

how stupid do people have to be to not know that PS2 was going to be a flagship title on the ps4?

didn't the last 10 game updates over the last 6 months hint to it enough?


also, dust was partially paid for by sony to get their userbase acquainted to the idea of a f2p fps mmo.


absolutely nothing outta this is a surprise. if dust closes shop in 6 months, noone will care, not even ccp will.
