CCP have innovated and joined up the dots other developers have ignored. It's a shame this won't be multi platform but no doubt there will be genuine reasons.

The gaming world will look on as we take our 1st steps.... and then get nuked from orbit.

Even though I am one of the folk with an Xbox which is disapointed I won't be able to play Dust as I was really looking forward to it but I won't buy a PS3 full stop, Not untill they fix the seriuos issues with what ever is causing these info leaks ect and that it goes down in price rapidly and even then I proberly would'nt buy one, Only tempted so I could play Dust, How ever I will hope for a PC release.

I do like this thread, Finaly some optimism about the game although I must point out that compaired to all the other threads and posts and this one thread with few posts, It is clear they went with the wrong console for sales (My opinion based on observation.) Just look at the number complaining to... Well this one thread with a couple of posts (I know there will be more eventualy but still.) Yet you make a valid point about micrsoft wanting to make money out of it, Yeah they do but your paying for the reliabilty of service and security that you won't get from Sony as been proven by Sony. Lol. Although I'm sure CCP has made up there mind and will release it to PS3 now regardless, They have made up there minds and I hope it does'nt back fire on them or on to EVE and it's player base, That's my main consern is if Sony mess up the EVE players, Cause if they do then Sony is screwed and maybe even CCP, Yet I'm sure they will take measure to prevent that.

I do how ever wish the best to all you mercs and perhaps I may consider hiring depending on how good things go with the game, If it turns to be a big pile of steam then I will avoid with all pleasure but if I hear Dust rockets wih activity (Which ATM I doubt.) then I'll consider taking part even if my first impressions was "FU CCP." Lol.

Basically exactly my sentiments but I may have to give into the PS3 only time will tell.

We can only hope.

From what I'm hearing it's not CCPs fault it's not on Xbox but rather MS and if that's true they may change there mind in due course when they see a massive market for the game on Xbox. Yet only time will tell, My main consern is info going to Sony, Cause if CCP shares major info that Sony could lose as it's done with it's own customers, I'm leaving EVE, Yet I hope to god that won't happen, Cause if it does that WILL be the end of CCP and EVE.

The question on any potential data sharing with Sony has already been answered here. As for the PS3/XBOX question, please let me refer you to the latest Rock, Paper, Shotgun interview where it is addressed in some detail.

Dust514 is an excellent excuse for me to actually get a PS3.

(FFVII, Something Chronicles... delicious RPGs... Killzone 3...).

Do I need to say more? :D

Heavy Rain should be near the top of the list, if you're into the whole multiplayer FPS then you really should get MAG (it's been out for a while so it should be cheap now)

And they got that pic on the site "For the State"

I recommend For the Republic! Very Happy

I already know this but it says "Today" they won't he sharing, Giving me the inclanation they will share something with Sony eventualy and if so, What ? I know it's hard to say and it's been very vague to far but a more detailed answer would be helpfull as I don't consent to Sony getting any of my personal details and if your terms and conditions change that means I can't play EVE because of Sony and that would be rubbish cause I love playing EVE.

But if they get stuff that does'nt matter like my player name I could'nt care about that as it does'nt pose me any threat.

This is actually making me consider buying a PS3.

I don't own any of the current generation consoles and it would be a good time to buy one as they have gotten to reasonable price levels.

Of course Dust isn't the only game I'm interested in on PS3, but currently the ones have not been that good I'd get a new platform. This might be enough to tip the scales.

Still, I'll wait for more info on Dust before making any decisions but as long it isn't a pay-to-win I'm certainly interested.

I'm not purchasing the game for several personal reasons, but I am excited about a new and unprecedented addition to the EVE universe.

I'm not too worried about the forum haters; this stupid vocal minority will always find something else to hate when they get bored of themselves. The important thing is to not pay any significant attention to the mob and try to collect all the necessary information about the game instead.

I'm optimistic, and I feel that the ps3 is the superior console, hardware wise. I think dust will be in important game, even if it isnt a good game, but I think it will be a good game as well.

But I'm not going to spend $600+ on a console so I can play a shooter with substandard controls. Should have been a PC/Xbox/PS3 release, so people could choose their poison, but thar you go. If the choice between xbox and ps3, CCP made the right choice.


Eh? A 160g PS3 slim can be had for $299 or less.

I'll be first in line for the beta, and will be pimping this to anyone I know with a PS3 (and if it's as good as I expect it will be, then I'll start convincing people to buy a PS3 so they can play it). I'm fully behind CCP on this one...brilliant moves so far, now hopefully the game lives up.

From my perspective, if you ever needed a reason to get a PS3, this is it. I certainly never needed a reason to get any of the major consoles, but I have so far hesitated on picking up any of their portables since the original GameBoy, but I will be getting a PSVita as soon as Dust514 hits the ether.

If it were available on PC then I might give it a try but since it's developed with crappy console controllers in mind I won't buy it (even if there will be a PC port). And I definitely will not buy some crappy game console just because of some silly shooter.

Basically any shooter that requires an aim-bot to play was developed on the wrong platform and is not worth the money.

Shame tho... Sometimes I really feel like playing a shooter and I definitely would have given Dust a try. But if CCP doesn't want more of my money.. well, what can I do?

X. Mainly what I wanted was a new dvd player, may as well get one that can play dust too.

Really glad CCP went with sony as it would be hard to justify buying a 360 when I'm not big on console gaming and it only plays standard definition films, would be a waste of a good telly. Excited to see how dust expands New Eden too.

I wonīt, but I still guess you are right.
PS3 is thanks to sony track record no option for me.

And hey, exclusive titles rarely stay exclusive, so we can still hope for more platform support.
*shrug*
Still I strongly suggest you check your reasoning as your whole post is lacking logic. You really think is taking a huge financial risk freely with just supporting ps3? Either sony compensated them very well for their risk or they could not work it out with microsoft to release the game on xbox live anyway. If you want tp praise CCP for taking risk, you are looking into the wrong direction, World of Darkness seems to be the far greater risk ;-)

Furthermore you asking that we give them the benefit of the doubt till release, which again does not make sense. The displeasure of many is not based on low expectations of the game, it is based on Sony. Sony screwed up in the last ten years on so many placed it ainīt funny (hardware problems since the ninetieths [planned obsolescence with premium prices] , rootkits, DRM madness, defective media, they sued thousands of their paying customers for minor copyright infringements, lost over 100 million of customer data, poor security on their networks, clear text passwords, and no encryption on logins, etc). If dust 514 will be as great as everyone is hoping displeased people will be even more ****ed about the platform choice.

2nded, practically word for word.
Also Sony releasing next year the re-mastered old God of War titles helps greatly.
And depending on what I hear about Dustīs sharpshooter optimization I might even consider that!
Even as plasticky as it seems.

I'd very much like to play Dust when it arrives, but honestly I just cant justify purchasing a new console for the sake of one game. I don't hate CCP for their decision to make it PS3 exclusive, but I do feel somewhat disappointed and puzzled.

I have a 360, and tbh if Dust was released on the 360 I would not play it, I just cant stand playing shooters without a keyboard and mouse. I understand that the PS3 supports keyboard and mouse though? More power to PS3 owners if it does...

But what puzzles me is why its not to be released on the PC, after all CCP already have a built in fan-base with PC owners... Maybe the sales figures wouldn't be as high as console sales, but they would still be significant, and I'd also take bets that the PC player base would last longer than their console brethren. Lets face it, most console games have a life measured in months, nothing when compared to the 8 odd years that EVE has been going. Its much more difficult to keep games up-to-date and relevant on a console.

Some people may claim its a cross platform integration issue, KB+mouse vs controller etc. And maybe there is an element of that, but surely there must be a way of balancing it. Even if it means keeping console players and PC players on separate planets.

I would never buy a PS3 or an XBOX to play one game, they are both very old hardware now, 720 is slated for release i believe & a PS4 is rumored, I think CCP should have waited until a bit closer to release to hitch itself to one wagon like this. A lot can change in one year in this industry.

If it's not on PC I won't be playing it, it's that simple, most ppl who use consuls don't like to FPS on them anyway so the whole idea seems ****eyed to me.

Just my opinion Oh Fearless Leader of mine!

Emote: San bows reverently before the mighty Hans Jagerblitzen.

Edit; just read the Rock, Paper, Shotgun interview and Farrer & Frans danced around why Dust wouldn't be available on PC, really vague, then; Thomas: And never say never, of course.

Hmmm.

I'll wait for it to be available on PC I think.

Will be there with bells on too. For all the 360 owners who are harping on the fact that PS Network got hacked. The pentagon has been hacked, the IRS has been hacked, most countries government sites have been hacked. The only reason I see that the 360 Live network hasn't been hacked is who cares to hack it. It wasn't untill Sony ****ed off the hacker community that a concerted effort was made to hack it. Trust me, if an organized attack were to take place against 360 Live, they too would be hacked. It's MICROSOFT for gods sake. The PC is hacked constantly.

Let's make this the official thread to demonstrate that CCP does indeed have a fan base that is actually excited about these developments. Dust 514 is closer than anyone ever expected, forum trolls have been raging that it'll be years before we see any Dust/Eve crossover, and now we're a year away. CCP has surprised us all.

X up in this thread if you plan on playing Dust, if you are excited about Dust, if you will buy a PS3 to play Dust.

Haters, you have 87 other threads to spew **** and vinegar in, so please take your comments there, lets keep this on topic. I want to hear some sounding off from those that actually BELIEVE in CCP, admire them for taking risks, and not selling out their vision to be creatively controlled where they wanted their freedom.

The nasty attitude by bitter Xbox users, or those who think Eve's spaceship game is "totally broken / abandoned" (but still pay for their accounts every month and complain but not enough to actually stop playing), makes me ashamed to be part of such a community.

There are plenty of video game companies out there playing it safe (Halo 4 anyone? Final Fantasy XXIVCMXCVII? Call of Duty 83?) and cloning their IP to death, in order to make money. CCP is taking a creative and financial risk, a huge one, by limiting themselves to one console, and if you love Eve the least you can do is give them the benefit of the doubt and wait till release to review and rage. Bless them for wanting to continue the spirit of releasing content FOR FREE which M$ would never allow.

You cant stop this, Dust is coming, it will be awesome, but only if the players make it so. Dust will merely be a set of tools to create your own shooter experience, and I sure as hell hope that its all the awesome pilots I've gotten to fly with over the years that will take up rifles next to me, and not the nerdrage naysayers spamming the hell out of our forums right now.

I am constantly amazed at how fast Sony's stealth marketing system swings into action when necessary. If they spent as much time on security as they do on astroturfing they wouldn't have gotten hacked in the first place...

Here's hoping the "never say never" part in Torfi's interview on Rockpapershotgun.com - when referring to Dust always being a PS3 exclusive holds true. Yes, I have concerns of Dust - but I DO want to play it. It's a pretty sweet idea linking EvE and Dust into one massive online game.

However, all this doesn't matter because I'm not buying a PS3 for one freaking game. ><

I know its been said in other threads, but you're not really the target audience here. CCP knows there are those that are PC loyalists, and they can play Eve, and that's fine with them. Dust isn't designed as fan service to the Eve Community, its an outreach to those not yet involved in the universe because they are console enthusiasts who may feel the same way about PC's as you do about consoles.

I play console shooters (only on xbox as its all I have atm), and I've never heard of an aim-bot, nor have I ever been required to use one that I know of. If you're referring to auto-aim, I always disable that as it messes with my headshots.

I knew it was just a matter of time before outcries over botting in Dust 514 came spilling out....I just didn't expect it this early :)
