    Is it really that bad on PS3? How is the control scheme?

    It's perfectly fine on the PS3. Simply connect your USB-keyboard and mouse and have fun. The graphics aren't that bad either.

    mouse + keyboard work just fine. Graphics are okish, balancing and matchmaking arent ok at all:) But this will change I hope.

    No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.

    The patch that DUST really need is called the DUST 514: PC patch. That one will bring the player population right up.

    I'd like it on the PC too but considering how competitive the game is,  you know there would be aimbots, speedhacks, wallhacks, etc by day 2. 

    Tabletop RPG gaming since Chainmail and D&D was a blue book with some cheap plastic dice and a crayon. MMORPGing since MOOS/MUDS, when forums were just bulletin boards and players actually roleplayed their characters.

    I wouldn't want Dust on the PC if it came in its current state.

    not only that:

    1. porting it to PC would kill the main aspect of the game, which is a cross platform interaction, they didnt take all the time to create a link between the consoles and the EVE single shard, just so people could play from their computers...

    2. i dont think CCP would keep it F2P in the PC, in order to keep the same quality they would have to make it a sub based game, maybe with a PLEX system or something akin to that. but still, people would complain that the game was free in the console and now they have to pay, so there would be a diminishing of players.

    3. CCP already state that its a PS3 exclusive, so there wont be a PC version, i deal with it, you should deal with it, there are plenty of FPS MMOs for PC, like Planetside 2(althought i dont like it, too much colors)

    It's not on the PC.  The same dozen guys crapping up every and any Dust thread with the same petulant whines about it not being on the PC is getting really old.


    God, just get over it will you?


    If you actually want to play it that bad, buy a cheap 2nd hand PS3 off ebay or something and download it; that's the deal. If you don't want to play it, then stop whining about which platform it's on. What does it matter if it's not on the PC if you don't like the look of it anyway?

    I'm waiting for PvE vs drones - I would prefer slightly more laid-back combat when I come home from work in the evening.

    PvP can get very intense in this game.
