During that announcement, CCP essentially declared Dust 514 was dead, that new features will be delivered via a new thing called Project Legion. They also provided no solid roadmap for transferring existing Dust players’ characters, assets, and accomplishments.
Worse still, they were running an online event in Dust leading up to Fanfest which required a purchase with real money to receive the full benefits of the event.
The results so far are fairly devastating.
CCP is a pretty responsive company, but boy do they have a LOT of backpedaling to do in order to fix this blunder.
UPDATE: It looks like CCP has made a clarifying statement on character transfer, however the language is still rather vague. The statement also says that a PS4 port is not planned. While I am *THRILLED* for a PC port, leaving console players hanging is a mistake. CCP should at least promise to build a PS4 binary, which would put the ball firmly in Sony’s court, and earn much good will from their existing console fanbase.
So I’m traditionally more of a PC gamer when it comes to FPS games, mostly because I can’t stand using joysticks for shooters. When I heard Dust 514 has support for keyboard and mouse, I immediately downloaded it and started playing.
I soon missed playing on the PC, and not because of any shortcoming of the PS3.
It just seemed that when someone wasn’t talking about how much weed they smoked, they were telling me who was gay, how gay they were, and why they were gay.
No skin off my back really, but the juvenile monotony of it gets pretty grating after a while. Luckily the developers of the game are receptive to petitions regarding hateful speech. Never thought I’d enjoy snitching so much.
