This is what, the first cross-platform game since FFXI back in 2003? I can't believe it's taken so long to create cross-platform play. When FFXI was released, it was only on pc, then pc and ps2, then finally 360.
im not having a very good gaming experience with dust, can someone tell me how to play this, i really want to enjoy it but im just finding it frustrating. I can only find one map at a time (is that because of the closed beta state ??), how do i kit out my drop suit, when i buy a shield upgrade or a new assault rifle does the amount i buy strengthen either, there are crosses on most items and not others does that mean i can't use it or buy it or i don't own it yet and do i need loads of computer parts in the suit to give me more Armour for example ?? i take it its literally like "star-ship troopers" with out the bugs, thrown into a solitary map and fight for territory ??? thanks to anyone who can aid me,
i don't wanna have wasted 15 quid and iv asked the developers for help, i can't dload the online instructions, plus there's fkg loads of it. :(
Awesome graphics and sweet vehicles.
But the soldier core shooting looked...medicore =( the equipment, like the thing on the guys arm to call in that bombbardment looked sick but the overall shooting from the on-foot soldier just looked like nothing interesting instead of now-days games shooting mechanics.
can someone tell me how this works, with regard to pc players interacting with ps3 players, will i be able to hop on my space ship and travel to another planet or will it be like Bf3 with load times and specific area's of combat ?? I never played eve not having a pc, but always found it fascinating. thanks for any help in this matter.
This game is going to be awesome! It looks incredible in beta stage, imagine how it will turn out with a bit more work into it. I can't wait!
i was playing the beta but as usual the sucky ps3 and ps network wont let me sign in again. i like the game but cant tolerate psn trouble. maybe they should switch to pc or xbox.
You're all FUCKING idiots...this game looks freaking sweet. There is more to this game than just a shooter. It will be connected to another game for anyone that likes to play EVE online.
For all the people saying there could be bigger battles on pc, I have yet to play a game that has had more players in one battle than Mag, which is ps3 exclusive. They admitted that in the begining there will be small battles 24 vs 24 being the largest, however thats all they have announced. Free to Play game, crossing platforms is the type of innovation we need nowadays. I for one can't wait for this game. If I get to piss off Eve Players and the little kids running around it just makes me a much happier person.
One word for this: DUMB :----->>> The idea of the game is good! Only one thing disturbs me, and that thing is how it is only for "PS3." My question is "WHY?" It makes no sense whatsoever to make this game for a console when Eve Online is a PC game. There are so many more things they could do with this game on PC. - People on Eve Online may be able to switch from being on Eve to being on Dust within a matter of seconds, or they could even integrate the games together. Also, the PC supports a lot more people(larger battles). It also seems like to much of a gap through tech to communicate players from a PC(Eve Online) to players on PS3(Dust 514). In addition, graphics may be substantially better if it was made on the PC for the PC. I am almost mind blown. I have nothing against PS3, it is just odd to make a game for PS3 that will be connected with the PC one. I am not trying to say they should have did it just for video graphics purposes. It is just weird.
That would be pretty epic.
@itchyflop It will allow EVE online players and corporations to take control of planets by hiring the Dust players, the actual game play will be similar to most large map fps's. Anything in space will still be taken care of by EVE players.
@bf3rocks23 not a bad thing i miss halo. cross play with pc and vita is mad !! looking forward to this.
@zphil over 5-7 years psn hav not gave me any trouble funny eh guess it must be your sucky internet
and just to think i almost went out and bought an newer ps3 this week, i was almost sucked into the playstation plus because of the free games but if you cant log in etc whats the point. im glad i dodged that bullet.
@Trunewb ahhhmmmm..... Planet Side 2: Basically will be 1000 vs. 1000 on a massive map.
Its more or less to start getting consoles connected to pc.. starts out like this, and a year or two down the road everybodys playing games together no matter what they are using to play it on. Makes perfect sense, and is a step towards the future. Dust 514 isnt being made on ps3 because it would be better, its being made to tear down the walls between consoles and pc.
@burnteyeball and i fail to see the issue here...
Its free dude, might as well try it XD Or make a friend download it and play it on theirs.
@Frostyballoon Though, now that I watch the video a little, it looks a lot like Planet Side 2. hmmmmm.. lol
@Frostyballoon Nothing like it, Planet Side 2 is more on the "MASS" scale(2000 players on a large(Very Large)) map and with very large battles. I see this game(Dust 514) being mercenary's or soldiers fighting over land(maybe planets) in the EVE Online universe.
Games like this almost always have terrible/only okay graphics..Game play is usaly what makes up for it if the game is any good.
@chyng85Only reason ps3 isnt the top seller is that it came out a year later then 360 (which.. is a pretty terrible syestem compared to ps3)... and the wii sells more because its cheap and thats all some people can afford (that and it seems to be the syestem Moms force upon their kids). Not being a jerk... but its true. I have all 3 though so :/ (Got the Wii for free... and the 360 so i could play Mass Effect 1).
@chyng85 Get ready to for disappointment then...
(and just to clarify and own and love my PS3)
@SubHumanTorch thanks man!! i looked into it and saw how eve players resource planets, and looked in detail at game-play in the heavens !! How do the dust players get hired ?? is there a squad or individual player stats table where the elite are given higher contracts. Surely if your shit you won't get hired ?? haha!! its really cool how it all interacts, and your saying orbiting ships (carrying aid) be able to be taken out by the eve players ?? :)
@truewiddy ive had nothing but constant trouble with the ps3 and i called custormer support and they told me to buy another ps3, i think they were just looking to increase there sales. i play pc mmos etc and have no trouble. very reliable fios connection. guess im jaded, when they were hacked i was able to log in afterwards but when they offered the free games they talk about giving there ps3 owners i was then also not able to log into the account. there network is unreliable and not worth my money. i still think an indicator to know if there network is up would help there customers. i already bought one piece of crap and wont be buying another, id just like to get some use out of my current system. the ps and ps2 were great and i had 3 ps and 2 ps2, this will be the only ps3 i own i think and may switch to xbox for the next gen.
UPDATE: even though i tried to call playstation and it said to look online, online it says the network is up. after calling a few more times they are now saying the network is down on the phone, even though online it says its up, be nice if they had a reliable way to see if its up or not.
@Slipknotdayof9 You do have a point and I applaud it, though in some ways I feel that this idea needed to truly come to the next console for a game such as this.
@Slipknotdayof9 and i agree i love that concept of the feauture maybe it will start working console with console as well witch would be awsome
@zphil sorry to hear you had such issues but dont think for a second the 360 is going to make anything any better every system has its issues iv had my ps3 for a long time since launch iv droped it and up till now it still works and yes the net work can go down but when its up i got no problem logging in its your wifi but there has been time when its not down and i cant log into psn but dont take long and i can log in again what am trying to say is dont judge the system judge the makers sony has made great items in the past microsoft great software but everyone has their choice as a gamer
@Slipknotdayof9 @Linex12 Well the cool thing about this is Its a F2P downloadable MMO, so.. Just like Eve has undergone tons of graphics overhauls to accomodate New Hardware, Im sure they could update Dust for the PS4, both graphic wise and gameplaywise for any new features the PS4 hardware could support.
@Linex12I agree, this could have been far better if they waited for the ps4 to come out... BUT I will take it as it is for now.. its free after all XD Plus its good practice ether way.
pc gaming is awkwards i cant get the hang of it really maybe its cause iv been console gaming all my life there a reason pc dose not show at E3 cause no one person owns the pc market and its not concidered a video game system its its a computer but connecting console to pc gaming thatss the way to go its a start at least and hopefully more people will have the balls to follow in CCPs footsteps
It would help the consoles future at any rate (I hope) XD.. Idk about you but... O_O playing everything on a tablet or computer sounds terrible to me.
