It all starts with the hardware…
When it was announced that Dust 514 would be a PlayStation 3 exclusive, my jaw dropped. As far as surprises go, it wasn’t exactly welcome – and for numerous reasons.
The first, and probably most obvious, is that CCP’s primary title, EVE Online, is a PC only title. Without a doubt, there’s a good portion of EVE Online players that would love to get in on Dust 514 that will be excluded due to such a move. After all, how many people are willing to drop money on a console just for the sake of one game?
Considering the link that CCP wants to play up between EVE Online and Dust 514, there seems to be a very obvious problem that is created by isolating Dust 514 on the PS3.
