Video: Dust 514 Interview: Changing Console Shooters Forever

132w ago - Today SCEE Manager James Gallagher has shared a video trailer and interview with Dust 514 on how it will change console shooters forever below!

To quote: We haven't heard a great deal about DUST 514 since it was shown at E3 2011, other than that it's a first-person shooter connected to the vast sci-fi universe of PC MMO EVE Online, and that it's coming exclusively to PlayStation 3.

When developers CCP made the trip from Iceland to London to outline their vision for this new addition to their immensely popular EVE universe, I came out of the meeting amazed at the scale of the project. Suffice to say, DUST 514 is not just another shooter.

After the meeting, I interrogated Brandon Laurino, Executive Producer at CCP, to find out exactly why PlayStation 3 owners should be getting excited.

PS.Blog: With EVE Online, CCP already has a huge, engaged community. Why are you now trying to break into the console FPS market?

Brandon: EVE Online is an incredibly deep MMO and, for better or worse, that comes with a typical perception that it is complicated. The common joke is that you have to overcome a 'learning cliff' to get involved.

Part of the thinking behind DUST 514 is to address those preconceptions; we accept that there is a barrier...
