    Dust, you say?

    Attachment 2676
    I have heard...rumors...of such a thing.




    Interesting part at 3:12 about control points on planets, resources, etc. Not mind blowing but tantalizing.

    For the record I don't own a PS3 and I won't get one just for this game, but shit, I'm excited about seeing this revealed.

    What links do you want to see between games and who's planning on going planetside?

    I do own a PS3, but I'm used to mouse and keyboard controls for FPS games. I want to give Dust a shot, but I'm betting that I'll get frustrated trying to play with a console controller. Then I saw one of these in a store the other day:

    http://www.hori.jp/us/Products/PS3/T...ultCommander3/

    Reviews are not too kind on the comparison to using a mouse and keyboard on a PC. Has anyone tried this or something like it?

    I'm not buying a PS3 for this, but I would've played this if it had been on the PC. Oh well.

    CCP have specifically stated that Dust will support an ordinary USB keyboard & mouse.

    So in other words, the whole "It's for PS3" is just a marketing gimmick, and if they've structured the engine properly, it'll come out on the PC in 6-12 months anyways, and no fucks'll be given.

    It's my hope that this will happen and give the beleaguered null-sec capsuleers of New Eden something to do other than troll forums during sov grinds, market pvp, fap, etc.

    For what it's worth I've been using a standard wireless keyboard with the PS3 for some time, seems to work just fine. I've never seen/owned a game that supports the mouse.

    I also share this sentiment. I've heard the arguments for why they picked the ps3 over the xbox. But to alienate a 400,000 possible suscribers, reinforces the line of thought that CCP is, well....
    [Arrador] possesses a considerable understanding of ship configurations, strengths and weakness. He gives clear and purposeful instructions, is good at taking advantage of the fleet-composition he's dealt, and never loses sight of the main goal: fun. This, paired with an excellent tolerance for strong drink gives him an almost Churchillian capability to win, despite being completely pissed on booze most of the fleet operation.

    I repreat my prediction that CCP will launch if for the PC at the earliest opportunity.

    When was the last time you actually cared about graphics for more than a few seconds, in a game?

    Agreed. I'm sure CCP are betting the draw of 'toppling empires' will trump Dust's relatively mediocre graphics, a point which I'm inclined to agree.

    For it to work though the link between games will have to be more than superficial, i.e. planetary interaction... mechanics influencing sov would be nice but don't think it's gonna happen.

    I would have thought so, but apparently it takes something like this that translates mouse movements into fake analog stick commands or something.

    normal mouse & keyboard will work, just buy a cheap wireless bundle or go full retard and buy a xime and troll forum to get it working on ps3.
    if this makes it to pc it will have very stiff opposition with planetside 2 being a F2P mmofps with much larger battles than 24v24 (if ps1 is anything to go by, at least 300v300v300) and truly persistent

    CCP will not introduce Dust on PC. They contracted with Sony for PS3 ~expertise~, in the details there cannot be direct competition with Planetside 2 (owned by Sony Online Entertainment).

    Edit: If and when exclusivity agreements expire, console kiddies would have moved on to the next big thing, leaving only bittervets and EVE players that already happened to own a PS3. I'm not confident that it would be profitable to port to PC at that point, but I could be wrong.

    The part revealed today about how the maps are generated based on the planet/region they're suppost to represent is cool. Means there's going to be well over 7000 maps.

    Woaaah, someone didn't watch the whole presentation. That's not how its going down.

    Maps will be similiar but they'll have different "moods" based on the planetary setting. So we'll be seeing many different "re-skinned" maps with similar terrain. (Though I'm sure they'll have some variety obviously)

    I especially enjoyed the statement how one guy pointed out a certain Temperate planet had no gravity, thus they'd need to make that planet's map have none :P, or the frozen lava planet (to which I must give credit, the presenter replied with a pretty good answer)

    I doubt the gameplay will be up to par with COD. It will just be another shortlived online first person shooter...regardless of the integration with Eve Online. Plus Playstation is ghey

    Say what you want but, CoD is pretty fun to play, owing to it borrowing from just about every good FPS since Doom. That's why it's so popular - it's just that it gets boring pretty fast if you play it at the levels that hardcore gamers are used to, especially older gamers who have played the games that it takes inspiration from, because it doesn't have much depth and it's really nothing new (holy balls I can't really tell the difference between CoD 4 and MW3 screenshots) in the slightest. Financially speaking, CCP could do a lot worse than target that massive niche - but I really don't think CCP are targeting that market ; DUST seems like the antithesis of a Pick-up-and-play game like CoD - I'm not saying that it's amazeballs complex or the FPS version of Chess but CCP aren't know for making easy to play games with shallow learning curves.

    I think as long as the game is accessible, it stands a good chance of doing well. What is important is keeping the gameplay engaging and (like EVE) constantly adding to it. By doing that, who knows, maybe they'll break the current trend of moving onto the "new shiny FPS" every 4 months.

    Time will tell.

    Guess you're too retarded to realize it's the best selling FPS franchise ever. Maybe you should get the fuck out of the forums. Obviously the creators of COD have a formula that works and has been since 2003.

    So CCP decides to develop a FPS which integrates to a 'PC' game but only provides the option to play it on Playstation. Genius. In the end you'll have about 10 to 20 thousand hardcore fans around the world that continuously play it because they like the FPS/MMO concept. The interest will drop after a couple of months when something new comes out. That's my prediction.

    The game just doesn't look like an "A" shooter like CCP keep saying. It looks slow and if they make it too complex pubbie PS3 owners (myself included) will not find it appealing. I guess they are going for player retention through depth model. Will be interesting though.

    At the risk of parroting countless fanboi threads across the web... I'll just say that CoD can be a lot of fun, but CCP is betting on snatching up a decidedly different part of the market; aka the part that cares about team-based objectives, character progression, sci-fi world, playing a single shard universe, losses have impacts, etc.

    Obviously a lot of the CoD kids aren't going to want to trade their "run around and get epic knife kills by myself" gameplay for something that requires some intelligent thought to win. That being said though, you better believe there is going to be more than just 10-20 thousand hardcore people playing Dust when it comes out :P

    This game made zero sense, and I'm glad that CCP has decided to continue with the tradition of it making zero sense. Honestly why would a developer with no console or shooter experience attempt to make a console shooter? Afuckingmazingly hilarious.

    And then there's the whole limited fanbase overlap. They have a committed army of neckbeards, at least some of whom buy the ever loving fuck out of plex. A subset, possibly sizeable, does not own a PS3. Marketing fail, much as it would be if Limbaugh tried to sell swag from his show in Mother Jones. Did they do a survey on console ownership among current and past subscribers?

    I guess I'll get the pc version but it'll have been out for a while by then, meaning I'll have forgotten it because Guild Wars 2 is quite likely going to get most of the gaming press airtime in the later half of 2012.

    A brain dead ape could figure out most pc games, including EVE. That's why the EVE community is an intellectual sewer full of cumspoons and shitbirds. Example: any game forum on the internet.

    In other words, if you pat yourself on the back any harder over your supposed superiority to people who play games on consoles you're liable to cause an earthquake because hurr durr pc gamers are fat hurr durr.

    Well, Dust514 is the first free to play shooter on the PS3 they say. That means every PS3 in the world can play for free.

    Its not that stupid really.

    Agreed. If they can get the number of people expected to buy it, to instead invest 3 months into eve, they could come out with far better profit from the game.
    And that's not even including the microtransactions, though I am curious as to what those will buy.

    Putting it plainly, so long as the specs are reasonable the potential PC install base is almost certainly larger while the costs (for CCP) are far lower.

    More fundamentally, basic rule of developing is do one major new thing at a time, because each major new thing exponentially increases your chance of a major new fuckup. In this game they're trying to do three new things at the same time, and one of those things (connecting to pc mmo with console shooter) ain't exactly something many people have experience doing.

    I'm of he opinion that from a development pov, they'd have been better off getting a pc version into mass testing asap, then implementing crossover, and then doing a ps3 compatible version. That way they minimize the risk of trifecta ultrafail and have constant consumer feedback at all stages.

    Sure, Sony wouldn't be as likely to support the project. But the development direction I'm suggesting would spread the costs out over time, get revenue streams in place early and establish an army of advocates and existing players before a port was even in existence. Instead of a virgin game with all the bullshit that entails, the PS3 community would be jumping into a polished experience with a history and plenty of activity. If you think about it for even a minute this has obvious advantages when going toe to toe with the established brands.

    EVE has exaclty two assets as a brand. Fanatically devoted neckbeards who create content like they're being paid for it, and a large number of current microtransaction friendly customers. I get that they want to expand their brand beyond EVE, but dramatic attempts to alter the brand tend to end poorly.

    tl;dr i srsposted a response to you because you seemed genuinely interested in discussion, but i really threw that content in as cover for glorious swearspamming.

    I would say that Sony would simply -not- support the game, and not do the changes they've done to do so, because if DUST runs on PC it becomes competition of Planetside 2.
