The only thing I can think of about this whole thing is, how on Earth will marathon EVE PC players be able to effectively coordinate with tons of console players consisting of a much different demographic of people with less time/attention to give to gaming?

ya notice why noone has a MMO on the 360 besides Phantasy Star?

Every time you went to update the game it'd have to go through Microsoft Certification.
Yeah and doesn't that cost money? I seem to recall some dev saying every patch costs like $80,000 fee paid to MS for the certification or more.

Regardless of the cost there's a reason that Valve switched sides from being pro-360 and anti-PS3 to the other way around. Certification is part of that, but so is control of your product. Considering Dust is going to be F2P, they probably didn't want to use a service that already involves a charge and I imagine they get a better deal as far as revenue sharing from items bought through their online store as well, assuming that both MS and Sony would take a cut of those dollars.

Yep, otherwise the author would have experienced exactly what he was wanting almost a decade ago. Love it when the uninformed right articles.

They want to make console shooter money and they cannot do cross platform with the xbox360 because of MS rules. Makes sense to me.
