Correction: it was 1,500 players that broke the server node, not 15,000. The highest at any time was around 3,000, and that's at the super trade hub Jita which is running on its own dedicated server nodes.

 

Some of this news like the part about seeing each other between EVE/Dust clients eluded me. A lot of this is very original and it's one of those unique IPs which the result will either be make or break. However, it's backed up by CCP which in itself is essentially a "game-playing developing community", so I have some hopes and trust this will turn out well.

EVERY MMO should take at least something (or a lot of things) from EVE. There is so much in EVE that is just 'right'.

I played for years, and it keeps calling to me to come back. Every other MMO (and many games in general) after playing EVE feels simplistic, shallow, and small. The only down side is that it's almost too deep. It can almost become a second job. A really fun second job that lets you fly spacecraft in a massive, truly open, 'world'... but the effort to get the most out of it can be quite daunting.

All that said, I only have one thing to say about Dust 514. PS3 only?!? I have no desire to own a console. I'm a PC Gamer. I need a PC version on this game! An MMO 3D Shooter with the pedigree of EVE behind it? Oh pleeeeeease, yes! That would be like PlanetSide on steroids!

What an incredibly interesting concept. Having played EVE for a little bit, I would never have expected this development. And how incredibly strange to have it an exclusive PS3 title!

I played EVE Online for 3 years.  Pushed every other game out of my life.

This will just make it even better if they can pull it off.

When I get done (if ever) with the games I picked up during Steam's holiday sales, I'm getting back into EVE.

Just remember that if you do buy the 5$ eve-o offer (there was one few weeks ago in fact), it only applies to new accounts.
