Prove it

Through e-mail verification perhaps? You can use the same e-mail to register both EVE and dust you know?

I sincerely doubt this.

Na, MMO players on PC are really intense gamers, they take the **** seriously. So if they get a chance to improve their account or whatever, they will.

Trust me as much as normal MMO gamers might seem intense, Eve online gamers take it to another level. I mean they treat the game as a real world and you can actually make real world money off it, so it gets pretty insane. I wouldn't doubt this.
dvewlsh  +   980d ago
Sure, I just think that they'd find MMOs on the PC to play most of the time. I think if they are hardcore EVE Online players, sure.

It's a good game and it's from a dev that always supports their game to the best level.

Its a terrible game. Also pay to win.

thats how F2P works

I thought the same thing until I actually played the game. It is definitely not play to win. Top level equipment is top level equipment wether is aquired with real or in-game currency, apart from say the name of a gun the stats are identical.

It's a free game, but my 80 gb PS3(which is a beast)can't handle the download since no space left lol...too afraid to change hardrive tbh hahaha

Go for it... I put a tasty 500GB HDD in my Backwards Compatible 80GB PS3 and it was the best choice I made 3 years ago.

It is pretty easy...You'll need an extra external drive to back it up if you don't wanna re-download everything.

I have the launch ps3 and the 60gb after like two years it was full, I changed it with a 500gb hdd and it is still running I had doubts at the beginning thinking it was going to mess up, but I never had a problem with any of my launch playstations they are still running perfect I do keep them clean, and usually after I turn them off I wait like ten minutes and then cover them with a shirt. But definitively do it I just started playing dust 514 and am getting the hang of things and can't complain is free

I don't doubt the claim but I do doubt these amount of players is significant. Even 2 players would be enough to validate what they say.

One of my friends did this actually. He got a PS3 just for Dust, he is a big EVE player. Been trying to get him to play some other games since I don't enjoy Dust but he keeps playing it...
MikeyDucati1  +   980d ago
Dust 514 is a gem. I believe him for my buddy did that recently. I've been on him about Dust so he took my character for a spin. It was brutal at first but he kept at it. Before you know it, he was hooked. It didn't take too long before he decided to get a PS3 just because of Dust.

You don't hear about plenty folks playing EVE or that it's been in existence, I think, about a decade. Lo and behold, EVE has a very large community that fully supports CCP. There's no doubt that will also happen with Dust.
Felonycarclub8  +   980d ago
I wonder if they will be making dust 514 for the ps4, am getting used to it, I been playing it for like two weeks and an hooked, little by little I learn more things, it's a good game
Temporary  +   980d ago
AGREE 100%
Narutone66  +   980d ago
Hahaha.. Eve and Dust514 are like crack, once you got into it, you just can't stop. You got your friend addicted to it. You should have seen the anniversary of Eve online, it was magnificent.
N311V  +   978d ago
You're so right! I am addicted to Dust 514. I don't even like FPS games, or I didn't before this one. It's the character progression that hooked me. I now spend days to weeks planning how to invest my skill points, weigh up the pros and cons of all the possible choices. In terms of gameplay, from what I've heard ignorance is bliss, it seems fine to me.
darkhitman  +   980d ago
i wounder if they are tracking this by number of accounts that play dust as there 1st game or something like that if they are there numbers will be far off as some of these will be player wanting a 2nd account to gain passive sp and others are spy accounts. having said they i have seen some people that bought their console for dust 514 (love the game everyone should give it a good try)
SIRHC13  +   980d ago
Bull. What about the culmination of PS3 games after seven years? Plus? The Last of Us?
yewles1  +   980d ago
Dust first, everything else in time. Baby steps...
MikeyDucati1  +   980d ago
lol The Last of Us. I think gamers don't know any other dev or game besides ND and TLOU. Relax, don't take this article to heart. You will live longer.
sourav93  +   980d ago
Did play Dust 514. During the private beta and after the public release. Didn't particularly like the gameplay of it; wasn't my kind of FPS. But I'm glad there are plenty others who enjoy it. CCP is a great developer. They deserve this support.
