Dust 514, CCP's first-person shooter spinoff from its EVE Online MMO, will (as expected) be a PS3 exclusive. And yet, the two games, PS3 and PC, will be linked. How can that be?

Similar to Valve's limited Steam compatibility between PC/Mac and PS3, the games on console and on PC will "share the same universe", events on one game impacting those in another.

It'll also be expanding beyond the PS3 and PC, with CCP "extending the experience" to the NGP as well.

Dust 514 will be exclusive to the PlayStation Network, and will be out in Spring 2012, though there'll be a beta at the end of this year.
