Dust 514 arriving for PS3 next month?

Sony Computer Entertainment America President and CEO, Jack Tretton, has revealed that CCP Games latest FPS, Dust 514, could be heading for an October release.

According to IGN, Tretton appeared on FOX Business to discuss Sony?s PS3 and PS Vita strategy, and when asked about free-to-play mentioned CCP?s shooter Dust 514.

?We do have free-to-play games,? Tretton said, ?A game called Dust 514 is a full-blown first-person shooter available on PlayStation 3 that not only allows you to play against your friends on PS3, but also against people on the PC.?

Tretton then mentioned it was ?Coming out next month.?

A slip up from an executive. That doesn't happen very often eh?

Cross platform needs to happen more often I think. Portal 2 for example, buying the PS3 copy got you a code for the Steam version and enabled you to play with the PC folk. Like with Shadowrun fps on the 360, that was great. The only downside to this is that PC gamers have a mouse and keyboard and can react a lot faster than us with a controller. Still, it's a great concept and it should be looked into more.

I thought that Shadowrun would be the start of the Cross Platform Revolution. Wasn't to be though. Let's hope that this will be the catalyst!

I'm still baffled by how this can be done, the interaction between PS3 and PC that is. I've played the game, and it has a refreshing complexity to it, I can't imagine it in other shooters. Bit rough around the edges, but still fun!

Maybe they use the same servers and somehow just allow different connection ports to connect to it like how laptops of all kinds can connect to the internet. Also I can't seem to make my own comment as the box to type is half showing on mine and I can't see the send button, has anyone else see this problem, I can only reply to other people's comments

Really looking forward to this. I am one of perhaps seven that enjoyed the beta. :P

This game sounds amazing, but I hate the fact that its only on PS3 & PC gaming.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
