Will Xbox 360 owners ever get to play eye-catching MMO FPS Dust 514, announced this week as a downloadable PlayStation 3-exclusive?

"That is one of the reasons why we've gone with PSN."

EVE Online: Reality Check

What does CCP mean when it says 'EVE is real'?

Although EVE Online is considered by many outsiders to be populated by the more Machiavellian, sociopathic elements of humanity, there's a surprising amount of camaraderie uniting the players who have travelled to the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik for this year's Fanfest convention.

CCP shows vision for EVE and DUST 514

"You have constantly challenged us."

DUST 514 to use micro-transations

No subscription for EVE's sister FPS.

DUST 514

Earth to earth.

Someone asks Atli Mar Sveinsson if DUST 514, the console shooter that will share a universe with sci-fi MMO EVE Online, will have character classes. You know, like engineer, medic, or assault. "That stuff is for computer games," the game's creative director says, dismissively. "This is not a computer game. This is a world. If you want to be a medic, take some stuff with you."

More details on EVE FPS Dust 514

How CCP's online worlds fit together.

Although details were sparse on last week's announcement of the EVE Online console FPS spin-off, Dust 514, there's been a trickle of information since that does a little to clarify how CCP's two MMOs will interact.

The best summaries are to be found in a video interview with CCP head Hilmar Petursson by German site Gamona, and Massively's article on what we know and speculation on what it might mean.

Petursson explained that Dust 514 will be an online shooter, for consoles only, with elements of real-time strategy - deployment of installations by commanders throughout Dust 514's battlefields will change the flow of the fight - and persistent MMO character advancement. Player characters in Dust 514 will be able to own things, including customisable vehicles and weapons.
