Sony is breaking down barriers on PSN for Dust 514
With Killzone going free-to-play, they have set a precedent for the PS3. CCP hopes to set a new one with their next game Dust 514, making things easier for third-party developers everywhere. Dust 514's executive producer Brandon Laurino commented on the upcoming release for Dust 514 later this year and how Sony worked with them to “identify all the barriers that need to be removed” from PSN. That way CCP's service can operate as planned.
Without these barriers, CCP should be able to affect the EVE servers in real-time while playing Dust 514 and vice versa. In addition, doing something like this for CCP proves that this is a sound business model that can work for both Sony and the developer. A similar situation would be how Sony allowed Valve to put Steamworks in Portal 2. This will hopefully lead to a bright future where games don’t require a $60 investment to enjoy them. Any g1s excited for Dust 514?
Yeah, just confirmed it. The Killzone MP demo locks you out after a certain level, forcing you to buy the game if you want to keep playing.
HUSH! STOP STEALING MY IDEAS!
This could be very very good or very very bad if they acquire too much power due to no restrictions.
Microsoft letting you play a full game for free? Not going to happen.
Are you sure? Because my brother tried the demo and had the same effect. When he reached the level cap, it stopped letting him play the mulitplayer unless he agreed to pay for the full version, and he got pretty mad about that. He's also read that many other people are experiencing the same problem. What did you do to get past that?
A WOW inside a WOW. Like WOWception. Or World of Inception.
Okay, World of Inception sounds awesome, somebody make that.
The next Xbox will be out sooner, but it very likely will not do this for a number of reasons
It's a MMORPGFPSRTS like Planet Side
I'm actually getting excited for this, it could be the next big WOW.
The next console probably will if this works. The 360 isn't planned to stay on the market for as long as the PS3.
I played EVE Online, and I didn't like it. Though a TF2esque game I can use a controller with might be good.
this is the first I heard of it, is this a fps MMO? or what it sounds nice tho none the less
thansk, i thought the game just shut down
No no, it doesn't stop, it just doesn't advance. You hit a certain rank limit, and then you stop advancing. You can keep playing, but you don't accrue more experience.
hey SA, i just read that the free killzone multipayer will only work untill a certain rank. for me its ok, jsut care about playing, not a bout getting the ranks, but the problem is that when you hit that one, the experience its over. its like having a multiplayer demo
I hate to sound like a fanboy but will Xbox ever do this? Probably not.
