Also what's so special about the 514 in Dust? Does it mean anything special?


It refers to the amount of minutes the average console kiddo will spend on this game before moving on to COD 17 and MW 48, after which it'll gather Dust on the shelf.

So is that the reason why the trailer on E3 was called the red dot trailer?

You mean Red Dot?

Let's just say we want DUST 514 to live long and prosper, and having regular free expansions is an important part of this. PS3 allows us to do that just the way we want it.


If you want DUST to live long why are you releasing it on a 6 year old console nearing the end of its lifespan?

Very happy you've been able to put together such a professional and exciting development to the EVE universe.

Well done, congratulations and good luck Very Happy

i assume CCP realised quickly that building a dust exclusive CCP console wouldn't be a good idea.

Yup, Dust surely looks good, really looking forward for it.

Though I'm curious about weapon/stuff design, are we going to see also something amarr/gallente/minmatar-looking, or only Caldari for initial release?

inb4 "bawww, my mommy doesn't give me enough money for PS3, game gonna suck"


There's something called " baaaw, I don't have a job currently, therefore i cannot afford a Ps3 "

But, if I manage to get back on my feet and get a job before the release I could/will most likely get myself a Ps3 and DUST :)

(Current job market is utterly shatterd currently, I can't even get a job as a dish-boy :P)

Well, Congratz CCP :D on actually getting a launch time...

But Will there be benefits from being a EVE player that plays Dust ? (Ie: Speacial Helmet with Corp tags / Suit ? )

Exactly what many have speculated was the reason Dust went PS3 exclusive.

I'm very happy that CCP has stuck to its traditions of free and regular expansions. You're one of the few companies I still respect and support fully.

Huge congratulations on what you've accomplished so far. I'm really looking forward to seeing more, and eventually even buying a PS3 to play it =)

Confirming that CCP are a company notorious for never ever patching their games to bring in new features, and they never ever recode an entire graphics engine in order to keep their games graphically up-to-date. Rumours that CCP update models, textures, and effects/animations are also blatent lies.

But speaking of DUST 514: Rock, Paper, Shotgun has just published an interview on DUST 514 - hope it will answer some of your questions.

NB! I haven't read it myself yet, but will do once I get my morning caffeine fix.

PS4? ugh

I am not an entertainment industry analyst but I believe PS3 has not even maxed out yet even though it is 6 years old and how can it be at the end of its life cycle? PS4 would likely have Blu-ray or its derivatives. I mean PS3 is like the defactor entertainment system that plays and shows movies.

CCP Spitfire Sad

Thanks for the link but still no answer to 514. Oh 514, 514, 514, it is driving me insane. Is there something you could do to Shadow so 514 is known to us or maybe advise us on what we could do to Shadow to tell us this 514?

Is Shadow that fiercesome? Surprised

Hmmm, this is getting me anxious - must investigate....

OK, back. I did some interwebing and couldn't find any insightful guesses by people. The only theories that made any sense to me were these: 1) 514 spells E. A. D., hence EVE and DUST and 2) May 14th release date.

Neither of these are very convincing, but it's all I could findCrying or Very sad.

Please tell us what 514 means.Very Happy

Haven't tested since I don't use consoles but saw some videos and yes it looks really awesome.
If only once I'm in my CC I could switch and fps a little bit this would avoid me from log off eve and FPS with another game Embarassed

Also made smile IRL the comment below Laughing

I have a question for the devs on this...


Will industrialists, be able to build all the "toys" (ships weapons, modules, cool gizmos) that the dust players use?

Will we then be able to sell to them?

Give to them?

Different tech levels?

invented items?

ok that's more than one question, but you get the idea...so tell us...Industry wins a little on this too?

According to the article,

because the orbital constructions and the surface-based constructions, they do literally need to be linked to form a space elevator, to gain the maximum benefits and impact sovereignity



Sounds like a massive change to sovereignty game is in the pipe.

514 is the number of game-breaking bugs they expect to have in the release code "despite rigorous QA"*


*QA consists of the boss' son playing Dust for 3 minutes, 2 of which were spent watching the intro movie.

Congratulations CCP, for taking a bright light of a game and snuffing it out with your boot heel. Hope it's worth pouring that money down the drain.
