Now that you have released a trailer showing the caldari stuff; put out trailer showing the other races stuff. In rust we trust!

Am I missing something here???
ugh

Did I just read that DUST 514 will only come out for CONSOLE!!!
I only have three words for that STUPID move, WTF
I mean you guys are built from PC and now a shift over to console what bfs.
So all this money you make now you really turn the Game into a console, even Here in the dumbest country South Africa it would cost me thousands of rands just to now get a console and then buy DUST.

STUPID CCP!!!

I am deeply disappointed. A company that has grown with the computer users. Feels like betrayal to the community. Crying or Very sad

A console version does not bother me. But the fact that there will be no PC version bothers me very much.

Wow, I can honestly say I have a mix of feelings over this.

Firstly, excitment... It's coming out on PS3, which I have :-).

Second, bummed cause it'll be another year + to wait.

Third, angst for the XBox community, to which I've read is at the short sightedness of Microsoft in not even willing to provide a solution to what could have been an overwhelming profit with an increased draw from the Eve community. A company should never limit it'self. Shame on you Microsoft.

Lastly, confussion... I can understand CCP wanting to tap into the console market, but seeing as the only console system that would cut the deal was Sony, you should not also limit yourselves and thus your effective player base. We've seen in this thread a lot of valid frustrations voiced... Not just spitefullness... So why not, CCP, develop Dust514 for the PC as well? So this thing with Microsoft didn't go as planned... So, you really wanted a seamless merge of two communities, and now the grand vision has become hazy at best... For the love of ALL gamers, don't just push forward with HTFU so blindly... The Alienation of the straining fans who want to play Dust, but now can't due to a single business decision has a very high percentage of backfiring and all these years of developing Dust will become an empty shadow of what it could have been. Release it for PC at the same time as console, even if it's delayed another year. Do what's best for your community that you know wants it already. It can still be a great co-existence of console and PC worlds... Who cares if PC players may have an edge with controls... The door will be open and can swing both ways freely.

TLDR: Don't shut the door on your current Fanbase CCP, it will most likely backfire. Confused

i would have to presume that CCP signed an exclusivity deal to get additional funds and expertise on their team from Sony about how to best streamline DUST514's development and get it to the e-store asap without loosing quality or gameplay.

getting those plus points u have to give something back.. so yahh DUST514 may be a PS3 exclusive but im sure after the exclusivity period expires u will see it on other consoles and possibly PC.

its just how business deals work unfortunately!

What a major disappointment being PS3 only. There goes my possibilty of playing Dust514. I can not justify a buying a ps3 one way or another. I can however say that I guess they probably achieved one thing by doing this: They now seperated probably the majority of the eve community from buying dust probably. I am willing to bet that aside from whether it could be on the PC or not, most eve players will more likely own an xbox 360 on the side rather than a ps3. Did you intend to split the 2 games' communities like so?

All in all, epic looking game, but won't ever get it if it stays exclusive to ps3.

Something to think about - current market research shows that 1 unhappy customer is equal to 67 lost referrals to your product. Doing some math potential for 20 MILLION lost referrals if a very large percentage of the Eve subscriber base is unhappy about something.

CCP, please don't make DUST for the x-box, I don't think the server can handle the 20 million new players this is guaranteed (by Market Research !) to produce.

I am disappointed about DUST 514 going to PS exclusively. It would have been really nice if it was offered to both platforms. I was looking forward to it, ah well. Good luck CCP with your game.

Fixed it for you and thank you for your consideration of the eve playerbase.

Also, am I the only one who thought those isk amounts were on the crazy side of things? Just one of those things cost more than a good number of ships.



Yes the numbers did seem large on some things. If there is a planet gun with a DD on it, it should have a cost similar to a titan, perhaps not as mobile, but one shot pew-pewing a dread should be expensive.

The Funny numbers were for things carried by an individual DustBunny. One item cost as much as a frigate. Lore wise that is silly but playability wise it makes sense, it keeps the economies more in balance in ISK vrs Time terms. If a DustBunny needs about the same amount of time and effort to accomplish a "level one DustBunny Mission", then having to have 300,000 ISK or so worth of DustBunny equipment would be reasonable.

Lore wise DustBunnies probably should not be considered grunts anyway, so much as "elite" mercenary types. Ex-Special Forces, Ex-Police/Swat etc all plugged into the clone system pod pilots use.

At least a 300,000 ISK flak jacket makes more sense than a 300,000 ISK hat.

Not the happiest person about it being PS3 exclusive but it gives me another reason to buy a PS3(the only other being Gran Tourismo).

Just make sure you get some play time on Planetside in to get an idea of what to do and not do in a persistant shooter and also just how Sony can kill just about any IP it touches.

I saw in one of the interview links that someone posted that DUST will run on Tranquility.

How will this impact the already soul-crushing lag that lives on Tranquility?

In 2009 the Dust 514 was introduced at Fan Fest it was later mention by some that Dust 514 was going to run on the Unreal Engine 3-

Since we are still at Alpha and over a year and a half later, Did the original demo seen at Fan fest 2009 get sc****d and a new version is being built using CARBON(tm)? Much like the original Walking in Stations?

Is it a case of needing an AWSOME base to stand on in order to build an AWSOME game?

If that is the case will the Dust 514 Game be a testing grounds for the eventual Combat, that many people want, in Incarna?

I guess the best answer I am going to get is: "Could be..."

I just had another thought, all the demos of Dust we've seen thus far... Were they not being played on PCs? In one vid there was a question, "Now these are all npcs you're fighting?" and was replied, "No, these are all live players." So, it stands to reason, Dust would be finished PC wise before it's converted to console... Am I right? So, there's really no reason why it couldn't be, other than maybe the exclusitivity rights... But is that console exclusive, or does that include PC as well since it is a different platform.

"According to the community manager of Dust 514, James Egan, there will be no monthly fee for the up-and-coming PS3 MMO that will also be compatible with the PlayStation Vista"
That seams to imply that dust wil be on the PSV(the PSP replacment) too

Well if you read this CCP, I will let you know that on all the other websites/forums I have been reading there are alot of people that are looking forward to DUST. Many of them have never even heard of EvE. So I wouldn't worry about DUST being a flop. EvE players are just natural trolls, but that is why you love us Wink

Perhaps better to think of it less as "on PS Vita" as there being some (optional) extensions of DUST 514 into the PlayStation ecosystem, so that would also include PlayStation Home. More info on this to come SOON.

Hi Momento,

FYI - The DUST 514 intellectual property is CCP's. CCP is publisher, developer, and owner of DUST 514.

I can't wait for Dust. I think putting it on PS3 makes sense, but that's just me.

I do have one question, reading the Dust blog it sounds like EVE-like game complexity will work the same in Dust such as managing fits, finances, and skills. Will Dust still be accessible to people who are used to today's FPS games where you just choose a job, configure your gun, and jump into the fight?




Our goal there is to provide a really visceral shooter experience, but give people the tools to loadout in different ways, bring more tactical aspects to their gameplay. You can just hop in, run and gun with a standard loadout, but the possibilities are there for more varied loadouts and tactics if players want this.

Is a Dust Alliance Tournament on your radar? I personally believe that this has the potential to be hugely popular with non-players to watch.

Oh sure I'm gonna rush right off to buy a new PS3 and Game only to have my credit card ripped off and get told to eff off for 2 to 3 weeks straight while everyone points and laughs at me.

And to top that off... Sony gets hit yet again on their music/movie servers and their entire effing DB is exposed to the whole damn planet.

This is CCP folks.... smart...brilliant...and quite stupid.

Please tell me you guys actually thought this through right?
At least open the bloody game up to Xbox... I might even buy one...at least it won't cost me half a freaking grand just to get the system (properly kitted). A PC would be better honestly!

The prices in the video, are they the estimated prices for the materials required to construct the items via the mcc or the price for the BPC or some combination of both?
