I don't possess a console, no way I'm buying one just to play what is bound to be a very mediocre FPS on an inferior system.

Based upon my current level of respect for CCP and the way it's doing things...

There are enough generic first person shooters out there with different skins on them so I might as well just play one I already own.

If I can totally flattern the entire battle field, and I mean TOTALLY flattern not "break till you fill the memory" ala red faction 1 or "only some things can be completely destroyed" ala bad company 2.
Then maybe but still, splashing out on an xbox just to play dust... it's not like it's a new zelda game.

I play on a PC, not on a console.

*IF* it is ever released on the platform I use, I may consider the idea.

If it remains strictly a console game, then no.

Lol you're joking. If it works just as well as EVE it'll be the buggiest console game I ever know. I wouldn't touch it with a 50ft long pole.

Tell you what, since EVE players pay it's development cost, how about giving each EVE player a free copy?

Well as i have an xbox linked to my main monitor and i play assassins's creed 2 while i wait for a fat little hauler to jump into my gate camp why not Razz

P.S. i hope you can go smash peoples pi colonies and get tears with it if not it'll just be another FPS shooter, not like the xbox doesnt have hundreds already

Battlefield 3, Killzone 3, Resistance 3 (probably) coming out next year. Add Crysis 2 for a good measure and there is no place for mediciore shooters :)

Dust means console, I don't have and don't want a console of my own, so no Dust for me.
Besides, I don't really like FPS in general, and console FPS even less so.
(whoever claims console FPS gameplay is pretty much the same as PC FPS gameplay needs to go DIAF)

Crysis was pretty mediocre; Crysius 2 won't be revolutionary either. Actually, none of those games you mention will be revolutionary. And then I'd rather buy a comparable game within a new(ish) setting.

Yes, I'll buy Dust. But only after it gets decent reviews on at least 3 different game-sites, and in the magazines I tend to read. Because I actually am curious how those ships look, seen from the surface of a planet.

Edit: spelling.

Consoles are for tools.

im not going to buy a console, so i can buy a game in a genre that works much better on a pc which i allready have to play eve.
one machine just for a game is enough.

Reskinning an old game doesn't make it a new game.
That's my issue with fps's plus most have that "start out alright\interesting for a few levels then get weird" thing about them.

Crysis was really good when I was shooting at asians then we had to go for the generic tanks>aliens>0g>cars>planes>boats thing.

Same goes for most FPS's... except far cry 2... that was just trash...

Multiplayer wise they all usually boil down to twitch and shoot because everyone's too pansey to give consiquences to death and the market doesn't want consiquences anyhow.

It'd be nice if it were a fps that you couldn't unload a full mag into someones face and have them still hop away from you but that's to be seen.

I'm not holding out much hope.

If CCP gets their heads out of their asses and makes it a PC shooter.

I wanna dock up, get shipped to a planet in a clone with no implants and f**k b***hes up.

No, I won't be.

That said, I've got a professional Xbox360 tournament team leader in my corp, who is planning to build a Dust team to counterpart for my corp, if it's actually needed/useful.

If it's a good game, why not? Of course I have a ps3 so i'm screwed. Won't buy a xbox for a game...

Also, i'm a mac gamer.

I'm going to be guessing most people here are going to post "no" as most are PC-gamers (as I am).

That said, I think the idea of Dust is great and am hoping it's a good shooter with a bit extra (sandbox / other mmo interface). My friend has an X-box and I'm certainly going to check it out on his console.
