'destroyed the entire eve project'? a little dramatic, no? shame on you for not having a clue, big guy. PS3 isn't necessarily my system of choice either, but anyone can see that it was the only viable option in this generation of consoles (and the current state console networks, for that matter).

Going PS3 only is a bad move, but I think they will probably launch it for PS3 initially, and then giving it to PC gamers later on.

360 owners will probably be left out in the cold.

Damnit CCP, why couldnt you have made EVE with flight sim controls instead of RTS controls. Totally ruins the whole game. I want to fly my ship and aim my guns myself.

@Arsinek I agree.

Not that I think cap ships should fight as shooters, but I'd like to see fighter level combat added to the mix.

Probably not a satisfying answer, but it was likely done for the sake of realism and immersion. Airplanes in space is fun, but doesn't really make sense. I know, I know, EVE has lots of little scientific inaccuracies, but I think they at least want the appearance of 'hard' SF.

The masses stating the obvious wont change the fact that CCP signed a hefty contract with the PS3, i am quite sure other platforms had their chance but simply came up short in the bidding war.

Again folks, you are of no concern to these companies, big contracts and cash are the only things that talk, knowing that some part of the gaming demographic plays the PS3 is something that CCP counts on, they and their partner will make money, in the end its the consumer that lets themselves get screwed by following the patterns these companies know and love.

Bidding war?

Are you kidding?
There was no console bidding war for EVE's spinoff.

Fact is, there was no other console available that would accommodate Dust 514, unless you're gonna try and convince us that Nintendo was gung ho for this.

SO they decide to go with the console that is behind the PC, 360, Wii, PSP, Nintendo DS, PS2?

GREAT IDEA!

Should we go with a console that just got super hacked, or the ones with a spotless track record?

THE ONE THAT WAS SUPER HACKED!

HURRR!

I'm no fanboy, but what exactly do you mean by "behind"? There is absolutely no way any studio would make effort launching something like dust on Wii. DS? You're kidding, right?

By the way, the /console/ wasn't hacked; PSN was. I'd even wager that the playstation network is the safest option post-hack too. Sony couldn't afford for that to happen again, so it sure as hell won't.

HURRRR

It already was hacked again bro, why don't you take your own advice and read before you make a claim like that. It was on the national news and everything...and yes you are very much a fanboy. The first step to recovery is admitting it =)

Did you not even RTFA? Everyone knows that the hack you linked to was of some WEBSITES of Sony entities not directly connected to the PSN.

Your article proves nothing other than that ancillary websites related to Sony products are still vulnerable.

The PSN network was hacked a second time me linking the wrong article does not change that.

And again you failed to RTFA. The hack was of one of their website's password recovery system, not the PSN itself.

So being able to hack the passwords to get into peoples accounts on the system is not a hack ? you're joking ...right ?

wow, dude. from the article YOU posted:

"We temporarily took down the PSN and Qriocity password reset page. Contrary to some reports, there was no hack involved. In the process of resetting of passwords there was a URL exploit that we have subsequently fixed."

Hack or no, it was still another hole in the security AFTER the first hack. I proved your statement incorrect and you're trying to get a pass via technicality.

@Rayko In all fairness, the distinction between "hacked" and "saw and fixed a potential problem that had yet to be exploited" is pretty clear-cut.
