DUST514 is a PS3 Exclusive

Posted by AnnonOMous (100 posts) -

I know some people like a short blog, and this is very short, very quick, very blunt and very, very political.
 
FYI: CCP's DUST514 is going to be PS3 exclusive because:

“Apparently it’s because the PS3 is much better designed for online worlds and micro-payments”
 
Suffice to say, many hackers agree with this.
 
BTW, I have read as many news reports as I could before I made my mind up, so I do know CCP's reasons for doing this incredibly stupid act.
 
Also, I expect to get a lot of flame for posting this.

And? Its looks generic and kinda boring.Sort of like blacklight tango down. I love FPS games but this looks like something I have played a million times. And I do not play EVE online. Used to. Just did not like some parts of it.

Meh, I'll leave it for the dirty peasant soldiers to give their information to Sony while I cruise through space and assign them to sacrificing their lives like the dirty console apes they are.

Would be weird if it wasn't an exclusive. Could you imagine playing with 360 players and PS3 players while you're on your big ship on Eve? weeeeird.

Look, you can't put something in quotation marks and not say who said it. Was it you? You're saying that?

Dust always has looked stupid. CCP wanting to expand their market I understand and certainly this puts a new wrinkle on the idea of persistence. However, even if you assume that the game itself is any good there's a massive problem in how they have it interact with the greater EvE universe.
