On EVE Online and Dust 514

An interview on Gamasutra talks with Thomas Farrer from CCP's Shanghai studio about Dust 514, the upcoming PlayStation 3 shooter, the ambitious plan to have the game interact with EVE Online, the sci-fi MMORPG. Here's a bit on how they envision this working:

This is actually really important and goes to what you're saying about looking at how players interact. There's no difference between a Dust corporation and an EVE corporation. It's the same thing. Dust players can join an EVE corporation. If a Dust player creates a corporation, EVE players can join that corporation. It's the same thing.

Say if, for example, you only have pilots in your corp, you can quite easily hire a mercenary-only corporation to fight for you. You want them to go and just destroy someone's things on a planet or take control of them for you, you can do that. You can hire them; you can use them as mercenaries.

Or much like you see in EVE corps, you have different groups within a corporation that specialize in different things. You know, you've got your miners. You've got your pilots. You've got people manufacturing. Now you've got a standing army.

CCP has already hinted that Dust may come to PC.

besides that, exclusive games are usually on consoles only, they can usually make their way onto PCs without any issues, Gears of Wars, Halo and such

Dust is an experiment, it has to be a great shooter to at the least hold its ground against COD and Battlefield and the EVE mechanic can match it for other online stuff
bah I'm sleepy :p
