Nope.

Unless the game is really great, and I mean legendary, the appeal will quickly be lost. The shelf life will probably be shorter than the development time, tbh.

And? that doesn't mean a product can't be good, it just means it has a harder time standing out from the crowd.


It means having to be pretty much perfect in gameplay,balance and bugs right from the start,even when compared to other FPS games,where the companies that developed those competing titles have already developed 5~10 other FPS games in their history,so they have plenty of experience....Do CCP have that kind of experience...No.


One of the most noticable ones is DICE,who've already got more versions of battlefield(+ expansions),than i have fingers over the past 8 years,starting way back in 2002 with battlefield 1942

…or it means that they have to present a product that is radically different than those generic ones offered by everyone else. That is very much in line with CCP's experience.

Such as?....I mean we have FPS games with different classes,specific abilities,different types of weapons and equipement,air vehicles of all types,ground vehicals of all types,all sorts of multiplayer modes too,voice communications,squads and even UAV's and even destructible environments,achievements and special unlocks... So what radical difference can they add that makes their FPS game stand out from others?


I mean i can't think of anything else myself and i'm an avid FPS player for the last 15 years,going all the way back to Quake 1,and CCP haven't given any details that will make Dust special over the competition out there.

If a PC version comes out, I'll buy and play it.

As long as it stays a console exclusive, not going to happen.

I hate consoles.

Console games are stupid, I don't own a console, PC version of multiplatform game is 10 times superior.

I play on the PC. I doubt i will play DUST instead of eve.

If a PC version comes YES if not no, I hate consoles and all the little gimps that play on them.

Erm no... If you mean FPS shooters then a keyboard with mouse aiming is vastly superior.

While I adore FPS games, Dust will be a big no from me as long as it's console only. It's not that I think console games suck, it's just that I prefer to play FPS games using a mouse and keyboard over a controller. Personal preference issue, nothing else. I wish CCP luck in their venture, otherwise. The premise is sound IMO
What if they include mouse and keyboard support?


Then I would buy it if it's PS3. I won't buy an Xbox360 for any reason.

No.

First, it is console only.

Second, there isn't enough offical info on the gameplay.

If we were talking Planetside remade and there was a (much better than a mere port of the consode edition) PC option... i would consider it.

Right now though, complete dismissal. Not getting a console to get some (by definition horrible) console shooter.

I am going to wait for it to fail as a console FPS so that CCP cross-platforms it to PC and seeds it on tpb.com

I will buy it when it hits 24.99 or below at The Exhange. I predict that to be about 3 weeks.

This, sadly. We're not talking about an established franchise, we're talking about an odd little game from an odd little company that the majority of console gamers have never heard of. And it's attached somehow to some other internet spaceship game on PC? WAT? It's gonna confuse the hell out of the usual console gaming crowd.

Even if CCP can afford to advertise in the big gamer magazines at that point, it will be throwing good money after bad.

I have a PS3, am a console gamer, love shooting other people in the face, and own a bunch of first person shooters. Therein lies the problem: I own a bunch of FPS games, made by established (expert) names in the field, and unless a new game adds something really, really innovative ... and you know, honestly, I'm still probably going to pass on Dust. I just don't see the same company that brought us Carpal Tunnel 2010 (aka Planetary Interaction) being able to handle a FPS console game, which is the antithesis of grind.

How long will the respawn timer be? Will bigger alliances be able to outfit their Dust players better than small corp/solo Dust players? If not, exactly how is the game planned to mesh with eve (and honestly, anything else would be even more of a waste of time). I imagine you'll lose a ton of people on that point: limited interaction with eve? Why bother buying it. Heavy interaction with eve? "Oh yeah, that Dust game, the one where dudes from that other game can basically drop god-gear soldiers on you? No thanks." Does it even HAVE a single player mode? That's another big issue. If it doesn't, people are even less likely to plunk down $50 or $60 to play on servers that may not be around in six months' time.

Just too many red flags for a console gamer in a crowded genre competing for shrinking player budgets. CCP isn't going to be able to out-advertise EA or Rockstar or Dice, all of whom will probably have new products or sequels coming out by the time Dust is done. And let's not even talk about what Blizzard will be up to.

It sincerely makes me sad to see CCP wasting time and effort on this stuff. I feel like I'm watching a mad scientist drain the blood out of a healthy, living body into some godawful misshapen lump under a sheet.

If one day it will come to PC, then yes, I might give it a try, otherwise no.

If they make a propper port to PC, then I probably will. In all other cases I rather burn my money then spend it on a console.

I dont own a console so if DUST is console only I obviously wont be buying it. If I did own a console, or if DUST was released on PC then yes, I think I would buy and play it.

I don't own a console, even if I did I probably wouldn't buy it because FPS on consoles is stupid.

Port it to the PC and release it over Steam and I might consider it.
