    Default Dust 514 PS3 only...

    Few peeps were discussing, ingame last night, whether dust 514 was gonna be PS3 only and why it's not coming to 360 or PC..

    Here's a cut and paste from RPS.

    Producer Thomas Farrer explained the controversial decision to make EVE tie-in shooter DUST 514 a PS3 exclusive in an interview with RPS earlier today. He explained: “most of DUST is running on our own technology, it’s running on our own super-computer, on Tranquillity. And Sony is a lot more… open, shall we say, to allowing you to do those things. It may seem silly, but on Xbox Live your identity is your Xbox Live identity. In the EVE universe, having people not know who you are is quite important.”

    When asked whether a 360 version was an impossibility, he reasoned that “I don’t think it’s about saying we “couldn’t” do it. I think some of the challenges we’d meet would be tricky. But then also as a developer you’ve got to weigh the balance. It’s nice to work on one platform rather than two, because it means you don’t have to make any awkward compromises, technically. Also you get the benefit of a closer relationship with that platform. “

    On the prickly issue of there not being a PC client, Farrer explained: “we don’t want to cannibalise our own player-base.”

    It was originally going to be on both 360 and PS3. Sounds like microsoft weren't going to shift on the anonymity issue though. Lets face it considering how pissed people can get in this game with each other the last thing you want is for them to have access to any of your RL details. As for PC i think in time they may release it but not until the PS3 has had a good head start.

    I heard it was coz Microsoft weren't happy to have 3rd Party servers, I think its because it would mean you could effectively log into Dust servers with XBox Silver which they wouldn't be happy with.

    The Dust peepz did say that the PC version would release up to a year after the PS3 version too

    Only fair, they'll need the head start in order to stay competitive what with those fiddly controllers they insist on using for FPS rather than a mouse and keyboard like any sane person would.

    I wonder if you will be able to transfer isk between games. I would assume so since capsuleers hiring mercs is supposed to be a big bit about how the two interact. I think i'll start putting money aside now just in case i decide to get it.

    I can plug my PC keyboard and mouse directly into the front of my PS3. The problem is a lot of games won't use it even though the PS3 has no trouble.

    I'm half considering buying a PS3 just because I like the concept of dust 514.

    Probably wont though.
