Oculus Rift And Sony Help CCP Games Expand EVE Universe Beyond Online PC Gamers

CCP Games is doing a lot of smart things. After focusing on growing a robust and dedicated hardcore PC gaming audience with its EVE Online game over the past 10 years, the Iceland-based publisher is expanding the EVE Universe.

First up is DUST 514, a free-to-play Sony PlayStation 3 space shooter that launches on May 14 (5/14, get it?). The shooter bypasses the intricacies of EVE’s virtual economy and politics (the online game is so complex CCP has its own Chief Economist to oversee the game world), and offers an action-packed entryway into the game. It also opens up console gamers to this very robust online space universe. The free-to-play gaming model is huge on PCs and Sony has embraced it online with Sony Online Entertainment (SOE’s) DC Universe game and now DUST 514.

The story is too old to be commented.

EVR looks like an amazing experience.

I should have backed OculusVR.

It will only get better with the ps4. I can see pc devs working with sony more this time around because of how open sony is with psn.

Skips1146d ago (Edited 1146d ago )

Exactly.

Given how open PSN is, how much Sony welcomes different developers, and not to mention the overwhelming positive response as to how easy it is to develop for the system (Witcher devs for example). I wouldn't be surprised at seeing many PC only titles heading to the PS4.

Yup & now u see cliffy b praising sony for opening up to indie devs. Coming out of his mouth just shows that every dev knows sony is open to all devs & they will give devs the most freedom out of the big 3 because sony loves new ideas & creative devs who enjoy making something innovative & refreshing.

Urrgghh...blinding flashbacks back to the time when the PS3 and 360 first appeared and a lot of PC devs (most notable were id and Epic) flocked to the new consoles, leaving PC gaming high and dry. And you guys kept asking why a lot of PC gamers are in a fit with these next gen console announcements especially with MS and Sony's tendency to enforce new games to become exclusives to their respective consoles.

Seeing this title i wonder if the ps4 would support oculus rift?! that would ve amazing.

Not for a while at least. I imagine that the Rift team are going to wait for a bit before starting work on console implementations of the Rift. It's new tech, so it'll need some time to mature in the PC world before going completely mainstream with consoles.

the oculus team said they are talking to Microsoft and Sony to have the Rift work with their new systems
