I did :)

Lucky I got it super cheap - and I've had time to enjoy a few other games that have launched. Either way, PC Master race wins.

I was *considering* a 360 for Dust. It has lots of games that I'm tempted to play and Dust would of been the tipping point to make the purchase. But no, being sensible, I didn't buy one until it'd been officially announced for that platform.

With it being on PS3, my distrust of Sony, not needing a BR player currently and obviously being of the PC gamer master race. I'll be skipping the 360 purchase.

Until they're £50 for a complete package in Argos like the PS2/original xbox is these days obviously.

After 5 years of trouble free running (not just gaming, watching movies, Sky etc so it was on much of the time) mine died.

So I sat down to decide whether or not I should get a PS3 or an Xbox. After looking at the large selection of games available, the cost and the craptasticly bot infested PSN network I got another Xbox. The fact that I thought Dust 514 was going to be on either console is something I did think about, not sure how much it effected my decision, but it's not like I never thought about it.

If I had known, it is possible I would have got a PS3 to be honest. Very Happy

Do you use Steam? If so, that has a SONY feature :) (HINT: Next time look at the log in window)

Just FYI :)

...Ouch! But it's ok, there so much more you can do w/ it.

Ya I got mine for Halo, COD, Gars of War, Star Wars, Fable, and netflix.

O yea, not to mention the fact that Xbox live actually works and doesn't get hacked. you know what happens to aim bots on xbox live? They get perma-banned...not just the Xbox live account, but the xbox mac address gets banned.

PS3 on the other hand has no means of even detecting cheats and aim bots....sorry NVM, there's already 20 threads on this topic.


Seriously CCP, why would you go w/ Sony?

True but I have more faith in Valve keeping my data secure than I do Sony. Misplaced faith quite probably and it'll most likley bite me in the ass at some point but there you have it.

I waited until ccp announced which platform/s dust would come out on so I could buy the right one.
Yes Iím gona be smug about this Laughing

PS3 hand controllers are **** tho (for me anyway) so I found this http://www.consoleshop.com/product.php?productid=21074]Anyone else found a better way of doing this?

Also hands up if you are gona buy a PS3 to play this.

Has it occurred to anyone that there may have been no way to put Dust on the XBOX looking at disc size? Blu-rays hold a heckuva lot more than an XBOX disc and there are a bunch of things that are being added above and beyond the typical FPS shooter. Might be one of the reasons anyway.

Because then they wouldn't be able to make/distribute/etc the game like they want?

Ask Valve why they went with Sony. I'd even be willing to bet that some smart folks at CCP spoke with Valve over this same matter. There are very few real PC game devs left.

Yes, please raise your hands so we can all have a good laugh at your expense. Why would you ever buy a console for a game that hadn't even been officially announced and therefore it was unknown which platforms it would be on?

DUST is going to be a digital download.

Why would anyone want to play a FPS on a console? Especially an online, PVP FPS? It's the definition of masochism.

Hell, even navigating the market interface with a controller will be a pain in the butt. Oh and can you imagine the scams? Considering that, currently, CCP's major anti-scam "feature" is "right-click the item and show info."

after the original xbox, i bought a 360 on its own merits, the superior gaming platform.
instead of buy xbox for dust, i kept playing eve for dust. i havent undocked in months, maybe years in eve. i just log in station trade a bit talk to corpies and log out....
waited for dust on xbox so i could do something in the eve universe
sony exclusive? there are at most 4 games i want on PS3... yet i have over 20 360 games that i know i'l play more then those 4 sony games.
why buy a PS3?
CCP missed their target market, they wanted FPS gamers, sony is the wrong platform for multiplayer FPS gamers.

It would be dumb Miilla, to buy a six or more year old consul, to play a game that hasn't even got a release date yet let alone information about what platforms it will be available for.

However the xbox is a handy little machine, can you make the 360 controller work on PS3?

This is actually a good question for an IQ test, im going to put this in my company recruitment tests.

If you could buy a game console, would you buy XBOX or PS/3?

People that responds PS/3 are very intelligent, people responds XBOX are dumb as a door.


Don't blame CCP for being stupid and buying trash.

i hear a madcats or something makes a 360 style controller for PS3... but.... eh... madcatz is .... garbage....
