Some of these posts sadden me and clearly don't represent the thoughts of all eve players.

The fact that CCP are developing a fps indicates that they have the means to embed the technology into the tranquility server environment, doing so would introduce a number of unknown variables which may detract from the experience of Dust/Eve.

- increased server load and lag
- decrease in player base in eve universe
- lack of interest towards Dust from new players

CCP are covering all their bases by attracting new players to Eve through Dust. The PS3 is the most powerful 3rd generation console on the market and has seen numbers in excess of the general eve population with some of the successful titles.

I bought a ps2 when they released the network adapter and Socom, and was addicted instantly. The ps3 has been lacking in hard-core titles until last year with the release of Socom 4 and BF3. Dust has a lot of competition if it wishes to succeed.

Agreed. Console only (as microsoft simply denied the offer from CCP as they re simply too gready) makes sense.

By the way, playing Eve gives plenty of intels about DUST 514.
I don't have any confirmation but the more i use PI in Eve, the more i feel like it's been created mostly to be a the link between Dust and Eve economics.

I would be more than surprised if PI aren't present in Dust exactly like they are in Eve.

No PC No one cares.

Even if you do get it for PC like a year later, or w/e, all the PC users will be in disadvantage from so many points of view (skills, money, power..)...

If it was just another game for XBox or PS I couldnt give a rats furry ballsack but this will affect my eve play.

How many eve players got a console??? How easy would be for those to send isk to the dust char for plex and **** and start training/getting skiils ?

Bottom line is that we either buy consoles or we get left behind.

This is as close to discrimination or slavery as it gets with this industry, without actually been that...

Aren't you overeacting a bit ?

The way i see it, Dust will only affect a limited part of Eve when it's launched.
And can you really blame CCP for wanting to grow to a new market ?

And regarding the bankrolling concern from eve players moving to dust and transferring ISK, CCP stated lately that they have counter-measures to prevent that.

^ This.

Typical console player.

But yea PC release please. So far it looks like another clunky shooter that'll just end up as a poor port on PC years later.
C'mon, we've got the better hardware than these consoles ... we always will. We've got a better keyboard layout to map our keys on and ontop of it ... if you scrubs really wanna let people play it with a gamepad then add gamepad support .

Sales? What sales? If you wanted this to impact on the market you should've got of your lazy rear ends on this game years ago. Doing this now just shows you guys ( CCP ) just wanna be a part of the loop and make some dirty money.

Typical PC player... See, i can make dumb affirmation too.

To me, your point of view is, in one word, selfish.

Not everyone can keep a PC up to date at any time.
And consoles, as much as you dont like them, did a great job at democratizing videogames and such developping it.
They're easy to use, offer the same experience to every players etc..

And then, calling a team of dev lazy when they've been improving eve since its release is a shame. You dont like their work ? Just leave, go play something else on your precious PC.

Sick of those self-righteous whiner.

Hey guys, for those that don't know, DUST is likely to be released sometime around when EVE: Inferno comes out. How do i know this? because CCP have stated that Inferno will be focusing on pvp (especially in null) and that just screams DUST integration. I'm probably gonna buy a PS3 for this to be honest :P DUST is almost the perfect game for me, along with EVE. Oh and for those looking for a good read, look up EVE: Templar One. I've been reading it casually for a few weeks and it's brilliantly detailed and very explanatory.

Well, it's not much of a surprise, it has been "either-or" in the recent announcements. Although I feel that it might have been a better option to put a symbolic price tag on it, which would allow everyone to check out the items, boosters and what not straight away.

For me, the biggest challenge for CCP will be to balance out the controls between mouse/keyboard, gamepad and Move. How they plan to succeed in doing this without nerfing the said m/k too much is beyond me, but I wish them all the best in the endeavor :)

my goodness are people sill complaining about the no PC thing?.... i mean are you guys just finding out about Dust and are thus newly indignant or have you been upset over a year since its been at least that long since the console exclusivity news was released.... i mean the Console thing has been set in stone for quite a while.... you guys Really no how to beat a dead horse... its been over a year... let it rest in peace.

Edit: What you guys should really be hoping is that CCP would be willing to work with someone like Onlive in addition to PS3, that way you could play DUST and only pay $100 for the hardware to do so as opposed to what you would pay to get a new PS3. That of course probably wont happen but since you guys insist on complaining about things that WON'T be changed you could concentrate on something that has a slightly better chance of succeeding.

Sell us PS3s for plexes.

...

Yup.

Edit: Also, all I really want to know is will there be localized damage? Headshots, less damage for getting shot in the foot, etc etc.

No headshots means dead in the water MMO unless it REALLY interacts awesomely with Eve.

Hello, hello again.

There will be HS. It's a FPS first ! So precise Hitbox is a must.


I guess you all saw the video from gametrailers. Just in case :

I thought I replied to this thread earlier, but I guess not! I just came back to Eve at the weekend and that was thanks to recent news about Dust, mainly that it was going to be fully free2play and the latest dev blog about vehicle customization which really surprised me as I didn't think they would be going into quite as much depth. It looks very much like it will be almost as deep as the ship fitting system in Eve.

Personally I'm very glad it's on the PS3 as I'm not sure my laptop would run a PC version that well, and I'm one of those odd people that actually much prefers playing a fps with a joypad than I do a mouse and keyboard. Hopefully though with all the integration with Eve (which really fascinates me and I want to hear more about) it will maybe attract new players into Eve itself.
