DUST 514 Gameplay: Meet the KR-17

Why they did not also release this on the PC is beyond me. I'd play DUST. I'd put money up for micro transactions. But, I am not buying a PS3.

Nothing left to say to this but '+1'.The decision to make this a PS3 exclusive is just terrible. It reminds me of the 'good old' :awesome: :fearless: CCP.

Can we get a couple more "Why not on PC lol??" comments? No Dust post is completed without them.

Sony paid them for it to be exclusive, also development for just one platform saves money anyway and provides access to a larger market group other than Eve nerds already giving money.

I am too much of a cheapskate to buy a ps3, why can't ccp pay a lot of money to get it on my platform?

I bought a second hand PS3 from a trade-in shop for under £100, the game is free and it plays blue rays. Much worse ways to spend £100.

So is a long video demonstrating over and over again a laughably overpowered shotgun, a shotgun that can one shot another player from 30 yards away, supposed to entice me to play?

The more platforms a game is released on, the large market it can attract. By limiting themselves to the PS3, sure, they get a different market than the PC, but by opening it up both, they get a larger market.

Makes me feel bad for the poor slobs trying to aim assault rifles with a stick.

In order to port it to PC and continue to update multiple clients costs money. Sony is giving them extra money not to do that. Rather than appeal to a smaller market that includes a playerbase that includes many people already giving you their disposable income is not the best choice.

lol...PS3 are like $100 used on ebayAs an existing Eve player, if you aren't interested enough to manage that you won't be much of an addition to the game anyway.

If it were that overpowered, you'd see everybody running around with them. In a typical 24-man map, maybe two people are usually playing with a shotgun. It's well-balanced.

This guy is actually using the bad shotgun. The good shotgun is close-range with 8 rounds.. Anyone who lets you get close dies. The shotgun is less over-powered than it looks: this player could easily be overwhelmed by anyone using a bit of distance. He's also doing a pretty good job aiming quickly; lots of people try to do the same thing and fail miserably. The game actually needs the shotgun due to the presence of heavies. Shotgun users are literally the only way to quickly take a heavy off the field, and they'll still die trying half the time even with a significant tank.As for assault rifles: they are the base weapon in the game, and there's good reason for them to be sub-par outside of their element (medium-range, particularly with logi or squad support). Shotguns favor the flanking solo player, for instance -- lasers favor ambushes and sniper rifles, of course, favor range. There's a lot of weapons in the game, and they each have their role. The game needs to do a better job advertising the fact that you can use the militia version of any weapon from the get-go; far too many new players feel stuck with the assault rifle when they could do much better with other weapons.

CCP makes Dust for PC: Half the Eve playerbase drops their Eve sub and plays Dust for free instead.That's the scenario CCP specifically are trying to avoid by releasing to Playstation only - a PC version risks eroding their existing subscriber base by providing a more fun way to be involved in the New Eden universe.

Dust 514 development builds are ran on the PC. But I still respect them putting the game on a console, less chance of cheating, no one is going to get an edge over another player based on graphics options etc., and is much easier to debug if there is a problem. I very much hope that Dust 514 gets moved to the Playstation 4 and UT4.

Are you sure they are run on the PC? That seems like it wouldn't work considering the PS3's wonkey architecture

Bloody hell, he's good at Dust too...

Which futuristic retard would design a short range weapon that only carries 2 lots of ammunition?There is a double barreled shotgun in today's world but you don't see it being used in war zones...

So can you hook up your normal USB mouse and keyboard to the PS3 to play this game? I'm horribly retarded at playing FPS with controllers.

Why not on PC lol??

The game has very little inovation FPS-wise. It will never be a as sucessful source of income for Sony as a game like Planetside 2 is. In fact, the way it is set now DUST514 is much more an advertising for Planetside 2 than anything else. The crappier DUST514 is the better for Planetside 2 as they have very similar gameplay and are set in similar universes (warring factions sci-fi). Planetside 2 being based on the PC it gets more FPS players. FPS genre was born on the PC, much better control with a mouse, etc, etc... As an EVE player, and by consequence a PC gamer, if I wanted to play a multiplayer FPS the last thing I would do is to buy a console. That was a shitty deal for CCP no doubt. I can't see how they can make a good case of this situation other than porting it to the PC, something that Sony will delay for as long as they can. "Never deal with a dragon."

Yes, just make sure to turn off mouse smoothing. It's bugged right now and kills your sensitivity.

Welll done CCP, you CoDerized EVE. I need to go fucking bath in some acid to wash this mess off me.

Explain to me how this is like CoD.

Do you intend to hire him?

Prometheus Exenthal, former CSM alternate and prolific EVE YouTuber and PvPer, has put out a DUST 514 video. It's worth watching.

For those of us who haven't yet given DUST a shot, this video is a great illustration of the flow of the combat and the feel of the weapons. Just a couple of lives on a single map can teach the observer some important lessons. For instance: don't let someone this good with a shotgun anywhere near you.
