Is a joke?


no, they are just being a good company and letting the few rare people that play eve and own a PS3, the 1st shot at getting into the beta test. I think that's pretty nice of them. Some of us play eve and other PC games... and.. gasp! we also play console games! MADNESS!/

but seriously ccp, thank you for letting us eve players get 1st shot at beta sign ups!

CCP... you doomed the games potential when you made it PS3 only... how hard was it to be on PC also? (I know Microsoft are some assholes, but the PC wouldn't have been limited like Xbox 360 was)

I would love to play Dust, but I will never get the chance, because i'm never going to buy a PS3 unless someone gave me one for free

Microsoft was not as open as Sony to the concept of a MMOFPS on their console connected to other platforms. They already said this.

I feel that Sony is also providing invaluable resources and experience to turn Dust 514 from an interesting game into a Genre altering game, and in return CCP agreed to an exclusive for whatever duration they discussed.

I personally feel that you should be gratefully thanking Sony and CCP for partnering, CCP did not have console development experience beforehand and now have garnered a much greater game development experience aboard the PS3. They are also singularly focusing their efforts on a single hardware platform with very few variations. This greatly enables them to focus on rapid game development while reducing QA costs.

It benefits us all for them to go this route for now. They may bring it to other platforms in the future (4 years or more), when they do those platforms will all benefit from the laser focused development pace currently kept by CCP Shanghai and the dust team.

PlayStation Plus subscribers are generally invited into Betas as a "perk" of membership. Probably the same applies here.

If we've already submitted our private trials application, then subscribe to Plus, can we update our application?

A question for the Devs:

Srsly, why the hate?

They've chosen console to get different audience. To propagate idea of EVE to broader range of people.

It is literally impossible to have both pc and ps3 playing against eachother in a fps while still being fair.


Supposedly this is due to the keyboard/mouse combo being more accurate, faster, ... than console controllers?

So what about pitting PS3 users with keyboard/mouse against PS3 users with weird controllers vs PS3 users with vanilla controllers?

cause that doesn't seem to be a problem for CCP Roll

Quote:
WILL CCP BE MAKING SURE THE SHARPSHOOTER/MOVE WILL BE FULLY COMPETITIVE WITH DS3 USERS?

We are dedicated to making a smooth integration for the SONY Move. But we also want to allow choices for the players. Some may prefer DS3, while others may go with Move and still others might want to use keyboard and mouse. We will be providing more details on this later on.

http://dust514.org/home/item/everything-we-wanted-to-know-about-dust-514-and-weren-t-afraid-to-ask?category_id=1

The PC-only decision is probably due to benefits from the partnership with Sony and due to CCP not wanting to cannibalize the EVE userbase for DUST.
But the "No DUST on PC because PS3 users can't compete with PC users" argument took a wrecking hit for over 9000 damage by CCP strongly suggesting that keyboard/mouse will be supported on PS3 DUST.
It's really time for this argument to die.
