Oooh.

Just had a thought (Although someone else probably has already and I just missed it).

If the console version is done (as vaguely suggested) then possibly a christmas release. maybe?

If that is so then that means the next major content patch (due in the northern hemisphere's winter, Novemberish, not the mini content patch 1.5 due in a day or so) will possibly contain the bits that integrate EVE with DUST514. It would also explain why they are putting effort into getting the COSMOS social networking thingy ready for the november content patch.

there is no way to know how well that works out, a) it seems you will be transporting a finite number of troops to a given battlefield. b) consoles cannot handle a ton of players on screen, most console games are severely limited to at most something like 16 players, pc can handle many more if a game permits it ARMA can handle something like 64 players total.

so assuming a finite limited amount of players on any one skirmish area for dust it would not take many to ruin a match by either shooting their teamamtes in the back, face, or just goofing off in the corner somewhere doing nothing.

and if you can boot them then your a man or few down to begin with. and i assume you could create another xbl or psn id and start all over.

i think CCP went crazy, or smoking to much ****, EVE Online it a unique sandbox game, and they want to break with a hybrid console game in it? WTF is going? What about us that we are playing for years?

Bleah..


Same as every other time CCP has "broken the game" quit (can I has ur stuff?) or adapt and realise they've actually thought it through quite well and it wasn't nearly as bad as expected.

I just hope that they either keep it very loosely associated with each other or have such hard integration, that they are basically playing Eve.

Alliances buying, selling and manufacturing weapons (Put those other moon minerals to good use), vehicles and landing craft.

Have Dust 514 Players able to command groups of drones from a command center, drop off supplys and give orders around from a command point. Soldiers duking it out using weaponry and tanks and jeeps. Pilots (Fighters, dropships) dropping off troops, supplys, attacking any ships in orbit or targets of interests.

See a lot more enviroments then just a battered city (since not every planet is an earth-like planet). But nothing like Quake indoors kind of maps. A more of a connected and sprawling deal, with multiple command posts, landing pads, destructable buildings. Be able to make new paths and break old ones down. Have one of the maps contain some Eve ships that we can run inside (used as a command center) and take over.

Allow Eve players to fly to the surface, giving bonuses to troops on the ground, shooting down transports or fighters. Fighting other people.

I'm going off on a tangent on what would make Dust 514 awesome for me, so do ignore.

Was a pretty awesome presentation. Those Girls and Boys delivered.


The fundamental key of power in this move for anyone who has missed it is:

Merging and expanding the separate communities of MMO and FPS Console.

This is the key to both understanding the strategy, and power of what CCP has done.

And with anyone who hates the fact that this might only be a console only game and you Wont buy a console. one i am surprised most of you dont play both. But you can say the same about WIS and Dust. If you dont like it you DONT have to play it. Just keep playing your pew pew in spaceships. Each to their own

Yeah I checked out console prices.


So.... that's a NO. Sorry, CCP, it's an awesome concept and a really bold move, but it's just way too expensive for me to buy a Console just for Dust. Call me when the PC port is released.

i say it again: there will be less or no cheating and hacking at all if its only on consoles. FPS + MMO = Cheatfest (normally)

Bit unfair really for the poor ground team. but hilarious as hell if you are a crap shot.
I hope that 1. you can join EVE online corporations as normal or perhaps change corporation feature to have a sub division for this.
2. We can chat to the players in dust in our corp

I actually do very well with fps on consoles. practice makes you very good over time, you will be surprised how fast you can adapt. also aiming in fps does not come from mouse movement mostly.
hint: strafe aiming. pro FPS players know what this means.

beside that I will buy it for my PS3 :)

Hmmm… now that you mention it, it kind of all makes sense. They said they wanted to put in background-characters in WiS to inhabit the lower (non-pod pilot) tiers of the stations. It's obvious they just couldn't be arsed with creating good NPCs for that so they just added a reason to put a bunch of lowly console players in there to provide some background noise for us VIPs.

Possibly the real reason for cosmos 2.0? And being able to add console players to your alliance would make perfect sense to keep them loyal and fighting for you instead of only being able to effectively bribe them to fight for you with merc contracts. However there is nothing stopping an alliance from having a select few of its own members also play the console game and then they can be the core of the console side to make sure the mindless hords fight for the right side. Lots of possibilities with that. ugh

Oh please. Go look at the numbers for console software sales and compare it to PC sales sometime, and you'll see why the entire industry's focused more on consoles than the PC. The money's over there, and if CCP can get a chunk of that while providing a clever way to tie it into the MMO-side then more power to them.

Why is it epic fail? Lets see, more money for eve. More players who play dust will most likely try eve online. More players for the main game. CCP will have something HUGE over WoW. Will be the only games company in the world to do this.
Also you dont have to play it. Stick to your spacehships

Which is why Halo and various other console FPS's are such EPIC commercial failures. This game is just not for you.

What makes you think a ship can sit and bombard a planet from orbit for hours on end? of course the other force would do anything to keep it from shooting their soldiers. At the same time as the battle for the planet raged on the surface, a similar battle would go on in orbit as no one wants the other side to get space superiority. The first side with space superiority would essentially win, but without troops on the ground they wouldn't "own" the planet anyway.

Anyway that probably won't happen because I very much doubt there will be a real time sync between the games.

Another thing I came to think of; what happens in a few years when Dust is old and new consoles come out? How will that affect EVE?

NO CCP.

three years in the making, thats three years you could have used those peoples too fix other parts of new eden. so what about ambulatuion eh ?, also what about new npc AI eh, what about all those things you said would get fixed eh, what happened.

stuff DUST 514, three years and you could have used those people too fix the bigger problems in eve.

well done you just killed a good game all for the good of GREED and MONEYS, shame on you !!!
