Dust 514 seems more a PS4 game than PS3, due the time the Ps4 comes out, almost nobody will not be playing Dust 514 on PS3..

So CCP has to take notice to give this game a straight good port to PS4, (Since its all possible that PS4 will handle the Port pretty damn well since its all X86 based CPU, so thats not the problem anymore. (But CCP has to focus on the Value on the armory, guns and The Currency difference between ISK and Aurum (Your Real Money) .And they have to hire more beta Testers for the sake of the annoying stuttering glitches and bugs the game has.

If they could achieve a very loyal following fanbase on EVE, then they should do this on consoles too with Dust 514, but the problem with Console gamers are the lack of interest in complex options and interest in co-operation in corporations. What im trying to say is that CCP could have a thougher time on the Playstation to convince people to play Dust 514. Because F2P is fairly new on consoles, Let alone how the New comer developer CCP, they have to study and learn what consoles gamers like before they bring out their big guns. PC gamers have more complex insight in their gaming expirience, Console gamers dont.. (It is what it is) PC gamers are far more open in those games than console gamers.

Even though i admit that i play on consoles, and i can finally expirience more other types of games than ever..

Indeed, They were quite wrong about many things in the game. However, they probably did get the feeling right, its not a good game (yet). It may prove to be though in the future. 

There are few things worth noting, firstly open beta is not near finished in this game. It just means playable. Secondly the game is barely integrated with eve-online at the moment. They are very careful not to destroy their mmo with quick releases. They intend to be around for a long time. Eve-online was really horrible at the start, but its oke now, still not my thing, but better. 

As for players criticizing the maps, they are automatically generated, and will be more and more so. They will even be customizable by the player, as players will eventually own these districts on the planet. Creating the maps by hand was impossible for them, because they needed thousands to seed every planet in the eve universe with 5-24 districts. This may prove to be either a great move because of the custumisation, or a terrible one, because the maps will never be a thought trough as a normal map. 

In any case they have a lot more for us in store for the future, and real promise of delivering that as they did with eve. Bigger player count, more gear, an endless variation of maps, and especially much more effect from your game (They are introducing a star-map and player-owned districts in the next patch). Who knows what they will do with the power of the PS4. Trees are high on my wish list, I think the maps miss a human component, they are only technology right now. I also don't like that footsteps are so muffled as they are now. And thats besides game mechanics that need work. Lots and lots of things they can and probably will do. 

After release and when their revenue increases, they will only grow into a bigger design team as they did with eve. They also have great communication with players. It might become very interesting, in time. Read their dev blogs, or follow the coming fanfest developer vids, you'll get an idea where it will be going.

Been playing it for a bit now. Keep turning it off to go back to PS2. Wont write it off yet, but so far not impressed.

Shooting, skilling, and fitting out the vehicles and dropsuits is all good fun.  But more integration with EVE Online will create a MMOFPS for the ages.

well whoever was talking about DUST was horrible. Almost everything you said was incorrect and misinformed. I must say, next time you talk about Dust, make sure you get someone who has played it and knows about the game

it seems interesting,  but nothing that tells me I should play this instead of battlefield 3 (with all its faults still an awesome game), lets wait to see if they add something...u know... mindblowing?

It's a decent game but I felt it didn't do much to hold my attention or keep me playing. While the graphics are surely not the best I would understand if they had a high player count but with just 24 people it just doesn't do anything new for me.

Was looking forward to this game and i do enjoy it every now and then, Yeah there isn't much action maybe the maps are too big or lack of players (Although i've heard they're looking into 64 players) But it is still a BETA and they will be moving it onto the PS4 so who knows what they will add by then. I still play the game but will wait till it's been worked on more.

From someone from the start of the testing process of 514 I can say there are more an more differences now from alpha to open beta. That being said playing with friends or joining a Corporation is the best way to enjoy this game. This is not a game you can enjoy if you are a solo player. It takes teamwork and strategy. This review does not suit the aspects you need to know about 514.

Played this game a few months ago. It was hopelessly BORING. I could've fallen asleep by the end of my match. You're all better off with a popular FPS game unless you really need something free. Hell, even the free Uncharted 3 MP should give you your shooter fix.

I was actually disappointed when I played it. It felt cluttered and over complicated, and the gameplay was only average to me. Bummer, I wanted this game to be good.

Yeah, gotta agree that this does looks average... and I don't have time for average games anymore. =(

I have been playing this game for about a month now. Yea the graphics are 5 years old, it gets really buggy at times, and the controls are far from perfect, but with it being a open beta these are problems that can all the solved before release. The upgrade system is what makes this game worth will, and it takes awhile to get used to it. You do not have to know anything about Eve Online to enjoy this game. I have never played Eve Online.

I was looking forward to this game, but in execution it's just not good.  As in, it's not fun as a shooter.  Everything else about it is cool, in fact every time I wanted to quit, in between matches I'd get excited again about all the customizable features.  Unfortunately the gameplay's just not there

been playing this on and off for a while.  its ok but think id like more mission based combat rather than just aimlessy running around.      it doesnt really feel like its tied into the eve universe just yet either. .   id like to be able to interact with eve players, maybe recieve missions direct from them for money and loot.   fight onboard space stations. stuff like that.      but its only a beta so maybe itll improve

The weapons that cost only AUR are not better than ISK weapons.   They just have a lower skill requirement.  So its the equivalent of being able to use a lvl 20 weapon at lvl 15 in a typical mmo.

I do like how they have NO clue how Eve works and gravely missunderstand how Dust ties into Eve :P

for PS3?? is it just me or there a glut of titles for ps3 that are still to be released and isn't ps4 coming out at the end of the year?..... goes to show long it takes for titles to be released these days. in the future titles will take more than a century to make and fathers will hand down their knowledge of game making to their sons a for them to finish it or for their children, children.

Hmmmmm...

For a F2P game I won't moan, plus i'm yet to try it for myself (would rather not play the Beta as it will likely only put me off).

I'll wait for the main release and will then give it a go, sure it's not allllll bad once you get into it.  Probably just needs investment of time.

they need to make this on the PS4, judging from the Beta it seems the PS3 is not strong enough to sustain this game. the texture popins and other small details ruins the experience

@nukem235 

Biggest problem is the maps. They are so bland, this is something that won't be fixed from a beta as maps at that stage will be pretty much final.

@lanasrj  lol yeh i think you summed it up about right.  i loved browsing the skills, spending the points, setting up the equipment and preparing for the match.  but  then entering the match it felt like a let down. all that preparation for everyone to run around like headless chickens and not really know what was going on half the time.  higher specced players would easily kill the new players.  the graphics werent all that great either. i know its a console game but ive seen better graphics on other console shooters.   id lose heart and want to quit but then after the match id have more money and points to spend :P

@Arcturuss I think the balance on cost and weapon strength is totally weak in this game, It doesnt matter even if you pay for AURUM Or ISK's, The weapons prove nothing to be powerfull.

Arcturuss

Also listening further into it they also have a limited understanding of the between mission mechanics..

I know its pretty complicated but they could have read up on it a bit..

@cousinmerl Its going to carry over to the ps4 once the ps3 falls behind in player numbers.

dust 514 is the ps3 1st person shooter counterpart for eve-online the second genesis witch is a pc space flight strategy game.

@Zoza24 The game is utter trash, admit it. I'm sure you are not "over-skilled"

@M1A2Abrams1 It isn't pay to win. Paying with your own money doesn't give you better weapons or anything.

@GrayF0X786 A lot of the graphics are WIP


The thing they did with dust was put it into beta way earlier than most other devs do.  When you play the Battlefield beta you are basically playing a finished game, a PR product.   This is an actual WIP beta.

@gehwesij Yeah but he's still right; it said this game was on PC when it's not.

@sleepnsurf @Zoza24 Why should i admit for something i like.

I think you are mistaken how many people play this game, And if you like another typical COD shooter to be smooth and fast, Then stay with Cod.

Dust 514 has a long way to go, just like EVE Universe did..

But i have to admit 1 thing about CCP, If they want to hit the Console market, then they should be careful how they work with console gamers. Console Gamers have higher standards in gameplay and value, and CCP must adept to this standard, Or otherwise they may fail with Dust 514.. But until then, lets give this this game a chance to grow..

Its by the way a F2P game so it has enough time to evolve, even more so on PS4..
