i played the beta and i was a bit disappointed in the graphics the gameplay and everything is pretty good and i like the story behind everything. but i think they should wait until ps4 and just up everything

I'm sure they'll port it to PS4

Yes... This game probably won't even hit its stride until the PS4. By that time, it should run excellent on the new hardware. If you look at how far the game has come just in the beta phases, this game has a lot of potential. I've played in the beta since day 1 of the closed private beta many months ago, if not a year. If you compare day 1 to today, you wouldn't even recognize it as the same game. MAG had a huge evolution, but Dust will evolve even more with the MMO F2P connection. I'm glad this game got the green light. It's excellent for those who want a deep, deep shooter that plays slow and strategic.

ive played matches where eve players was raining down the pain but we can shoot rockets back at the eve battleships i like the game becuz its complex it is true people dont use there mics alot in my 5 hours of play time ive only heard this woman chating away 1 time

people that trash talk this games gameplay r simpleminded r just trolls cuz after u buy and invest into weapon and mechanic skills it fells alot like a AAA shooter like i said i only got like 5 hours in the game but how my drone (CHIEF ENGINER FUSSEAL) feels on the battlefield is night-day thinks 2 my kill investments

Join a corp to find people with mics. Most people are in corp or squad chat.

I tried a early beta version but was kinda put off by the graphics. Graphics ain't anything sure but I've seen better looking PS2 games. Not sure if its been updated from then, I shall give it another try soon.

the thing is, it's in Beta and according to them they'll increase the player count. It's already been confirmed that they have tested 128 vs 128, and they do plan on increasing the current count as time goes on. For a console game that's impressive and MAG wasn't a good looker either.

Either way, your not gonna see that amount of players on a PS2 title looking this good

February has a major graphics patch upcoming, although graphics have improved a lot every build. It's not a bad looking game.

The beta is pretty fun now. It feels like Battlefield 3 set in space :D

I tried really hard to enjoy dust 514, it's just not for me. I'm sure some people will enjoy it There this game would probably look better on a next gen console.

Nah, it wont be going to PS4. This is another way of Sony supporting the Ps3 platform even when PS4 releases. The gfx is underwhelming.. but, given the scope of the game, its understandable. Also, CCP has a user base of millions and millions of gamers, thats good for them. Next gen the install base would need to grow before it would be viable to them.
Besides... Next gen.. PS4...
I would LOVE to see Planetside 2 on PS4! It would do Sony well to preinstall Planetside 2s client on the PS4 hdd (with the option to uninstall if one wants,ofcourse)
Planetside 2 as a launch title on PS4 ...WOW.

I've heard that CCP can port the game to PS4 to continue the game without any hitches. The PS3 is basically the testing ground for the game which explains the extremely long beta.

Once the PS4 hits i won't be surprised that every account for Dust is transferred over (seamlessly is another story) for players to continue their game.

All this PS4 talk. People are forgetting GTA5,last of,beyond two souls god of war. etc.

PS4 may nit be released till holiday 2014 maybe later.

I like it so far I went 12/5 my second game so its not too bad. I agree I love using L2 R2 to aim and shoot only thing I dislike on dust and battlefield 3.

This game has lots of potential but I doubt it will keep people away from the more typical shooters. I hear the graphics are gonna get a boost in a future update, but I wish they'd also upgrade the weapon sounds. The default and early unlockable assault rifles sound like air rifles or something. The spawn system needs work as well, since I frequently spawn in front of one or more enemies and get mowed down. The menu system is overly complex but that won't keep me from playing, though some menus currently take a long time to load. Overall it's definitely the most complex shooter I've ever seen on a console, and I look forward to seeing the finished product, especially since it's free.
