THAT'S THE MOST AMAZING THING I'VE EVER SEEN! AN EXCLUSIVE GIMMICK FROM CCP!

If they thought the game would have any staying power, we'd be seeing it coming out for PC.

No, not really - PC games are too easy to hack / make (aim)bots for; And in an FPS that is utterly gamebreaking.

Console games are easier to moderate in that respect.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Sometimes when I post, I look at my sig and wish that I'd follow my own god damned advice.

Sad but true. The thing is, as much as I hate to admit it, consoles are an ideal platform due to the controlled environment. The only downside consoles ever had was lack of mouse/keyboard control for FPSs. Now it appears CCP is going to fix that.

Outstanding.

I can't wait to *destroy* some console noobs.

I'm not holding my breath until I see either a PC release or a PC variant of Dust 514 for us EVE players.

Oh and an assurance of no micro-transactions too.

Willing to bet the mouse speed will be limited to stick speed first of all, which means using a mouse in dust will be just like using one of many third party products you can already buy to use a mouse and kb for FPS on consoles.

This translates into counter intuitive mouse use for a FPS, small precise twitch movements wont translate into the same action as in a true FPS. With the adapters such movements translate from what would be a sudden 180 turn into the cursor barely moving causing players to have to use long exaggerated movements rather than small precise ones.

Mind you it will probably still help with aiming for the stick impaired but don't expect a true mouse driven fps experience.

The advantage of a bad memory is that one can enjoy the same good things for the first time several times.

One will rarely err if extreme actions be ascribed to vanity, ordinary actions to habit, and mean actions to fear.

I agree and think they should release stand alone versions of Dust 514 on the consoles and keep the full thing on the PC, it just isn't going to work otherwise.

Why would you think that? Other PS3 FPS's have used mouse/keyboard controls that act no different than PC controls since 2007.

There is no reason for them to gimp the mouse/keyboard scheme for Dust.

They'll do it because there will be a bunch of complaining customers about how they're getting pwned because they haven't bought a mouse like everyone else, halo 2 did cross-platform support and to fix the problem they gave console players auto-aim so it meant all the PC players were at a complete disadvantage since they actually had to aim in order to get kills.

Just what a competitive FPS needs, two wildly different control mechanics playing the same game.

Absolute idiocy at its finest.

It makes me sad when people don't link to the actual source of this news.

But yea, I thought there was going to be much rejoicing from the EVE Online players when I finally revealed this is happening.

Couple of weeks after the next gameplay video which is coming out really soon. Yes soon, not "Soon™". So before the end of February.

Yeah, that all sounds great but CCP have previously said the the Keyboard and Mouse will have full support for CORP CHAT CHANNELS. So I won't be holding my breath until either CCP says the Mouse can be used for aiming ( which this article does NOT say ) or we get our hands on a beta key.

No I can tell you, they're referring to aiming in the match. And I'm the one that wrote the article.
