Please explain to me the reasoning behind making Dust 514 a PS3 Exlusive and announcing it right after a Sony hack? That pretty much explains itself. Making a MMO/FPS Hybrid on one of the worst gaming networks available? It's going to end up blowing up in your face. Not saying don't do it. Just not now and NOT on PSN. I would love for Dust 514 to be made just not the way its being planned.

Oh and soor I placed this under Jita wasn't paying attention. I don't usually post and wont again so don't worry about it.

I'm just going to assume that you haven't read anything about the ordeal. Microsoft won't allow DUST on the xbox because CCP wants control over the servers and updates, to put it simply. As for the PC, well they already have a PC game and they want to make a console one. CCP originally were going to put it on both platforms but Microsoft didn't allow them too. I hope I clarified things for you.

Yeah I was a little ignorant of the details and I thank you for that, but that is going to be another one of CCP's mistakes....or did Microsoft want COMPLETE control? If so then I can understand CCP's reaction.

Oh and correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't Sony try anything to help its sales right now and is CCP aware of just how insecure PSN is? If they don't try to resolve that problem then this is just going to blow up in their faces. I'm mostly unaware of the specifics, but if you can clarify this I would greatly appreciate it.

yes. MS would've hosted the game on XBL, would not have allowed integration to EVE, and I believe wanted Pay-for-upgrades limited to something in the 60 or 100 mb range (over the life of the product).

All things that would have been bad(tm) for DUST the way CCP envisions it.

I just assumed they needed to pick one or the other in order to afford the marketing push new shooters have to have.

Does anyone seriously think the game will pull away the crowds from MW3, BF3, Killzones etc

i think we should all ask ourselves THIS:
do we want the majority of people playing this game to be of the variety who can only comprehend games as simple as call of duty or battlefield?

i say regardless of what platform DUST is on, it needs to be complex enough to ensure only the more intelligent/adaptable people can even play it, because frankly, if DUST playerbase DOES draw heavily from the CoD/Battlefront community, i will not be playing, as even lowly carebear-griefers have more maturity then most of those players.

I have started a few posts about this very same game but it seems that not everyone is aware of how unique it really is.


I am a BFBC 2 :::active vet grade 1::: and a COD VET also.

This IS going to be a great step forward for all FPS titles as we( fans of the genre) need that MMO aspect to even spark life in our corpse let alone provide a challenge.

not sure yet if DUST can pull the masses from the listed titles, even so it will be welcomed in my house as it will bridge EvE and FPS styled games.

personal I am interested in the weapons and vehicles we will be able to build in EvE and sell/use @ Dust

Form up for CTAs often takes over an hour. I play console games while I wait. It seems reasonable that CCP would want to tap into both income streams. I'm confident I'm not the only one in any given CTA on there too.

I agree that PSn getting hacked was a huge blow to them and their users and is completely unacceptable.. On the other hand, i trust them to correct it as theres no reason they couldnt. Im sure they have learned from their mistake.

Since they arent making(i assume) DUST514 a pay a monthly fee game, the best other way of making sure you earn money on the game is making it a console game. I also think that linking a console game to a pc game is even more incredible than linking 2 pc games. I also agree that announcing the coorporation with sony right after the hack is a strategic mistake whatever their reasons were. But the way i see it, Sony has made the best PS3 games thus far and so even though making DUST514 is a daunting task i would like to trust them to make the best of it, these days theres very few game makers that i completely trust.
