DUST 514 dev Q&A session coming exclusively to PS Home

March 19, 2012

DUST 514 dev Q&A session coming exclusively to PS HomeSony has revealed that this Thursday will be a big day for PlayStation Home, as CCP Games will be hosting this year’s EVE Fanfest live into the virtual space. The keynote speech will be streamed live into Home followed by an interactive Q&A session exclusively with the folks in the Home space.

The PlayStation Home is an odd little social project that has garnered attention from various circles across the Web. According to Sony there are currently 23 million active users out of the 77 million total within Home. Fan sites such as Homestation Magazine dedicated to the PS Home have popped up discussing topics from the latest virtual items to social game space.

The event held in Home will be special as it will be CCP Game’s first public unveiling of DUST 514, showing off gameplay footage followed by a live Q&A session directly with the developers. Its like going to the EVE Fanfest conference from the convenience of your “home.” The event will begin March 22nd at 9:00am PT (12:00pm ET).

In addition to the DUST 514 event, Sony will be dropping a new mini-game called MiniBots: Battlebox this Wednesday. This game was developed by Juggernaut Games and will be available as an active item, but will be unlike anything seen in Home as its actually a third person shooter that unfolds in your Home space.

Check out the PlayStation Blog for the rest of the details.

    “According to Sony there are currently 23 million active users out of the 77 million total within Home”

    that’s more than the number of XBLG subscribers lol.

  2. phranctoast:

    When does the new updated Home come out? The one with different themes as if it’s an amusement park. That looked interesting enough to actually use..

  3. phranctoast:

    While I know it’s impossible with Microsoft’s closed Live policy, but I can’t help to think that if this game was a 360 exclusive we’d hear more about it. Maybe because it feels that the 360 is starved for exclusives that aren’t Kinect titles, Maybe because it looks like the target audience is Halo fans, and this game appears to be the next step in evolving that franchise….I don’t know.

  4. Roca.:

    “When does the new updated Home come out?”

    it’s been out since November

  5. phranctoast:

    “it’s been out since November”

    LOL! Wow. I somehow missed that.

    @ Roca

    “that’s more than the number of XBLG subscribers lol.”

    Means absolutely F All.

    Live always appears to have more active games on it.

    What I would love to see is data on actual usage of PSN Vs Live, that is, the numbers of people “actually playing games” at any given times, not just those who have created accounts at one time or other.

    I’ve not been on PSN home for months, must remember to check it out some time, see what they have done.

  7. emjay2d:

    SOE is garbage. Its hard to take this game seriously


  8. Reace:

    Where the hell is everybody?

    Did America Nuke itself into the dark age yesterday?

    Did Anonymous close the internet down?

    Am I going to have to post something criticising the PS3 to get some activity on here?

  9. phranctoast:

    Eve Online and Dust 514 aren’t SOE games.

  10. Roca.:

    Bioware announcements ragarding ME3′s ending.

    “Building on the team’s research (industry press, forums, Facebook, and Twitter, just to name a few), Exec Producer Casey Hudson and the team are hard at work on a number of game content initiatives that will help answer the questions, providing more clarity for those seeking further closure to their journey. You’ll hear more on this in April. We’re working hard to maintain the right balance between the artistic integrity of the original story while addressing the fan feedback we’ve received. This is in addition to our existing plan to continue providing new Mass Effect content and new full games, so rest assured that your journey in the Mass Effect universe can, and will, continue”


  11. FahKinSuPah:


    I have a theory about this…

    I think Bioware deliberatly made the ending as it is, and was working on DLC to “refine” the ending all along.

  12. phranctoast:

    In a way id like to see them charge an exhorbant price for that DLC to teach these entitled bitches to stfu about shit like this. Can you imagine the uproar if they had to pay for what they think the right ending should be. I’d lol.

  13. Roca.:

    LMAO @ Phranc

    I can’t comment on ME3′s ending yet :(

  14. ncaissie:

    That robot game looks fun. If I ever get home to work ill have to try it out.

  15. ncaissie:

    “Can you imagine the uproar if they had to pay for what they think the right ending should be.”
    You mean a proper story for that $70 game? Go figure. 8)
    Are you sure you don’t own a 360 and work for Microsuck?

  16. dans303:


    Your comments weren’t showing up yesterday, they just appeared for me now. Also, your name is now ‘Reace’. Weird….

  17. Roca.:


    Godless forgot to sign out of one of his troll accounts. The ones he uses to boost polls in favor of the 360.

    what a fool.

    and Godless. Home has millions more “active users” than XBLG subscriber – and being a subscriber doesn’t mean being a “active online user”. Many people create new accounts to get 30-day free Gold and new 360s comes with 3-month gold membership.

    Home > XBLG install base

  18. oldschool1987:

    Lmao is that one of Godless’ accounts getting mixed up????

  19. dans303:

    “Godless forgot to sign out of one of his troll accounts. The ones he uses to boost polls in favor of the 360.”

    “is that one of Godless’ accounts getting mixed up????”

    I’d be inclined to say no.

    Firstly, if he had previously ‘fixed’ votes then why did his comment take a day to register? Secondly, despite how much you may want to believe it, I doubt he is the kind of person to troll like that. Finally, even if he IS making up secondary accounts to ‘troll’, I doubt he’d be as stupid as to use the same avatar for each.

  20. oldschool1987:

    Dans your avatar goes on every account you make. You don’t choose your avatar on this site but on another site. If I was to make another account it would be that picture wouldn’t it? Could be wrong but I have this picture as my avatar on other websites which became that automatically.

    If I’m honest I don’t think Godless used another account but why his name is Reace is pretty random?

  21. dans303:

    Your avatar is tied to whatever e-mail account you use on each site.

    You’re using the same e-mail address for each site therefore that avatar is used. If you tried to register for this site again, you wouldn’t be able to use the same e-mail address.

  22. oldschool1987:

    Good point.

  23. ncaissie:

    I have more than one email in gravatar I think.
    So he obviously has more than one.

  24. Roca.:

    Godless’ got himself a lawer..

    well, the evidence speaks for itself ;)

  25. dans303:


    The voice of reason. ;)

  26. Roca.:


  27. Philistine:

    LOL, I was pissing around with the nick name thing to see what it did.

    Now changed to philistine, though my comments are still awaiting moderation or something.
    the account is still the same Godless account.

    Roca, Do you really think I have the time to piss about with multiple accounts for what amounts to nothing?

    I don’t think so!

  28. Philistine:

    Just read through the comments again.

    Why the hell is it the PS3tards always assume people are cheating or lying for some reason.

    I think it says more about their own personalities.

    “Home > XBLG install base”

    Like I said with out actual evidence of usage anything you say regarding PSN Vs live means jack shit.

    I personally don’t know which one is used more, but from a personal point of view, Live is almost always very active, for just about any game you try.

    IF you can point me to some statistics on actual usage for both systems, I’ll believe what you say is true.
