I'm not gonna cry about it but the followers of EVE have supported the game on the PC for many years now. I find it really annoying for CCP to turn around and create another EVE game that blends into EVE for the consoles only. So us people who play PC games and have supported EVE are now left in the dark while CCP spends the money that we used to make them rich on a console only game. I wouldn't have had a problem if it was for consoles and the PC but to say no PC version is shocking. It's not like it would be hard to do for the PC seeing as the 360 and the PC are meant to be easy to port between eachother. Being an FPS it wouldplay better on the PC because of th emouse and keyboard.

I just find it rather annoying and what kinda impact does this console only game not only have on EVE but the development on EVE. What things are being delayed for example because the console Dust is taking first priority? Is the whole walking in stations thing gonna be delayed now for launch along side Dust? Is atmospheric flight in EVE something that'll never happen now the consoles have Dust?


This feels to me like SOE going Everquest 3 is console only and it would be like hang on a Min Everquest fanbase is on the PC.

CCP is just another company that tries to make profit.
If they have the idea to expand to consoles let them be and get over it.

ooooh another dust thread.

I'm glad these are all electronic and not on actual paper. We could have destroyed the Amazon Forest for good by now if every post/thread about Dust was actually printed on paper.....

That's exactly what I thought. Not that I mind. They probably couldn't come up with anything using WiS/Atmospheric Flight that would really add to EVE and decided to do something else with it instead. And what they're doing looks awesome.

I do share the OP's sentiment though. "Console Only" IS a kick in the groin of the PC community that made EVE and CCP what they are today. I don't mind that they wanna open up to the console folk. By all means do so! But plainly ignoring their existing fanbase does not send a good message.

I'm not crying Doom and Armageddon for EVE. First because I'm not involved in 0.0 warfare and I trust CCP to not completely unpower the existing mechanics. And Second because at best DUST will work until the next console generation comes out and at worst the game will flop from the start...

Pics of Ambulation? You mean like the videos on youtube and the video of them demonstrating it to an audience at it's announcement?

Hint: You pay money to CCP for permission to play EVE, not as an investment to help them develop the game.

What I find personally baffling is everyone raving about a company cleaning up a mess their own software allowed to be created.

Fascinating.

What I find ironic is here you have a game which is essentially an exercise in Hyper-capitalism, filled with so many detractors spewing this nonsense about how bad it is CCP is engaging in the most primal and basic elements of capitalism itself, instead of using those subscription funds to offer more enrichment and enjoyment to their otherwise undersocialized and underhygiened lives. Mantra for the average Eve player "I fear change".

Yeah cuz they could have slowly leaked out trailers and details just to drop the console only bombshell on the community and the whambulance would have gone off like a supernova rather than the atom bomb.

BECAUSE OF FALCON DUST!

Shocked

You know the falcon ship within Dust is going to wreck the game. Dust is dying already! ...and did you hear that CCP will require a DNA sample to even buy the game!?! Screw this. I'm quitting.

I just do not get it. How does this being a console only release hurt your ability to play EVE? In what way has your ability to enjoy EVE been harmed? EVE is going to go on and on the PC with no issue. So what if they want to release a console based game? I mean if you feel somehow slighted by this move you have a serious over inflated sense of self worth.

This decision is not about kicking PC gamers or harming EVE. On the contrary it is an effort to bring a whole new audience to the EVE universe that would not otherwise see it. That does NOT BTW include the current EVE players. We are already here and know about EVE, so we do not need to be targetted with a dumbed down version of the EVE universe, which BTW is exactgly what the FPS play typically is.

CCP does something truly innovative for the MMO world and all people can do is complain? Seriously folks go back to WoW and we do not need your stuff.

I am not sure, but I heard it was basically because of the way ccp make EVE which makes it open source, kinda, you can at least see all the coding and everything...or something like that I'm not positive. But, it "supposedly" would make it incredibly easy for people to create hacks, aimbots and such, for the PC version because ccp creates their games like this. So their options are, have hacking be rampant, or make it console exclusive. Again, I am not sure on the details, but this was the gist of how I was informed about it.

EvE players = Bourgeois

Dust players = Proletarians


EvE players will still decide 90% of the outcomes of EvE not dust players.

I think you're all mad that other players get to enjoy something that you don't because of your elitist perceptions towards EVE.
Get over it folks, it's another game to help CCP out in the troubling economy. I've seen more whining about a company that could, without your support, be bankrupt than I've seen in any other announcement for a game.

Don't like it? Leave the company, do a ragequit. Because somehow assumptions are made and they become hysterical rumors that CCP is abandoning EVE. Isn't that just smart.
