EVE Online developer CCP has announced console game Dust 514 as a PlayStation 3 exclusive.

A closed beta will happen at the end of the year. A full PlayStation Network release will happen in spring 2012.

The Dust 514 "experience" will also be "extended" to NGP - now officially called PlayStation Vita.

"We're taking a console shooter and connecting it directly to a PC MMO," CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson told Sony's E3 press conference audience.

Dust 514 and EVE Online will share one "vibrant universe" - one single-shard super computer server.

Dust 514 will also feature Move support and offer a dedicated PlayStation Home space.
