CCP Games have revealed that Dust 514 will be distributed via digital means only, meaning the game will not be getting a retail release.
When speaking to Hilmar Veigar, the CEO of CCP in LA, it became apparent that Dust 514 will be arriving as a download only title, ”Our infrastructure is deep. That’s why we’re going digital distribution only” he told ShopToNews.
Dust 514 is an MMOFPS set in the Eve universe, which was crafted by CPP for the popular PC MMO, Eve online. The game will be CCP’s first since the 2003 MMO and will be available exclusively on PS3, next year.
So, what are your guess about price? $19.99?
Don't forget that the game will use microtransactions, probably through EVE Online's upcoming Aurum currency that will be used for microtransactions in EVE. Source
Is microtransactions another reason that it may not have been suitable for Microsoft on the Xbox 360? They want all the DLC to be through their marketplace?
