don't give them ideas! surely something as basic as orbital bombardment doesn't need extra skill training if you look at what even the most basic capsuleers are able to do.

i mean how could you possibly miss.


glad to hear dust is entering this phase, i hope it won't be :nda:-d to death and everyone will get some new info from this.

i just locked an open door.. strange, yet symbolically compelling.

Silly question: Is it required that you be a PSN+ subscriber? I'm not and as much as I'd like to play Dust and help find / kill bugs, I don't want to pay a subscription to fee to Sony.

Wait... didn't someone in CCP say that D514 wasn't aimed at the existing playerbase?

I understand offering Beta access, am dissapointed it's a PS3 Exclusive so means I won't get to experience it. I'm not buying a console I don't really like for one game, sorry.

Good luck.

Also, anyone that gets in: break the hell out if it and make sure you report how!

maybe they dont dare to drop whatever bugs DUST beta has to a player base that is inexperienced to CCP :P

Or maybe its just a thank you, we will never know

That's certainly true, no-one knows CCP like us.. and not many people like to break things like EVE players do.

hmm. there must be a way how to suicide gank dusties from space.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

we are talking about hitting an object, the size of lets say battleship on a target that is few 1000 kms and rotating away from you at the speed of lets say 2000 km/s (earth spin speed) where your dread is probably in siege mode and have a tracking as close to zero as possible.

Yeah, you dont need a skill for that, how could You miss?

Oh look, it's all the tired old "it's not on PC youz suck CCP!" whiners, infecting every Dust thread they can find. Get a life, morons.

That said, this is wonderful news! I'm signing up ASAP!

That said, I'm hugely disappointed that it won't guarantee me a spot in the beta...like, why not CCP?

You know there is a huge buzz in PS3 FPS fanbase about this game?

Few big clans from MW and BF said they are coming to dust.

Soooo, all I'm saying is: dont be so pesimistic about it.

I'm one of those that's hooked enough on Eve that I'd pickup a PS3 for Dust. Originally, I wasn't going to, but hell many of us buy video cards that cost more then PS3s.

Plan is to just hook it to a monitor on my desk and I'll be trying one of those PS3 mouse controllers for Dust. There is enough downtime in eve, waiting for fleets to form-up, waiting on something to jump to a beacon, hauling **** around the galaxy.... Maybe some instant Pew Pew action from a console game can fill the voids nicely.

Maybe if some of us help test DUST with those PS3 mouse controllers early, then PC gamers will have an easier transition.

I really do wish CCP the best with Dust. If Dust does well I'm sure EVE will do well. The non-pc thing is a big problem though and with Planetside 2 coming out that whats probably gonna fill the MMO shooter spot for me. I did sign up for beta so I may dust off my PS3 for it.
