In case you have been living under a rock, the development for the PS3 exclusive FPS title DUST 514 has been running at an steady pace. Being a PlayStation 3 title, they are offering EVE-Online players the opportunity to sign-up for a closed Beta to be available soon(tm) on the PlayStation Network.

Let’s shoot the elephant in the room first. If you haven’t sign up already we suggest you to do so, here is the link.

There are a few caveats:

As we move closer to a full release of Dust 514, CCP CmdrWang and the Dust team would like to invite you to register for the opportunity to take part in the Mordu’s Private Trials. Click on this link to read the full blog for details on how to register.

Update on Tuesday, January 3:

Scams involving DUST514 beta keys are not allowed. Much like EVE Online accounts, the DUST514 beta keys are non transferrable and selling them, or offering to sell them is thus prohibited.

The thread has evolved into a major thread-naught, for which CCP Cmdr Wang offered the following response to several questions which have popped-up across the +24 page thread:

Dear Capsuleers,

Thank you for your interest regarding the DUST 514 Mordus’s Private Trials registration. I would like to take this opportunity to address some of the concerns raised in this thread.

With regards to the MPT availability, currently it is available In English for English speaking regions. So, if English is the official language in your country, you should be able to access DUST 514 Mordu’s Private Trials from the local PSN store in your area. We are, of course, working on localizing the client so that it becomes available in more regions for the Official Launch. So to recount, the DUST 514 Mordu’s Private Trials will be in English only for English speaking regions, and our plan is to have localization for the following languages by Official Launch: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese.

And remember, the DUST 514 Mordu’s Private Trials is still in the registration phase, and that is open to all EVE Online players.

With regards to the DUST 514 Mordu’s Private Trials registration confirmation issue, we will be adding a status page to the EVE Online account management page for those who have signed up to participate in the DUST 514 Mordu’s Private Trials, so you can keep tabs on the status of your registration.

Thank you for your patience and continued support.

CCP Cmdr Wang

And the DUST 514 Team

A few things I discovered

– There is Aurum for sale at the PlayStation Store.

– After I finished checking out the PSS, I noticed NetFlix on my PS3. Checking the options, I spent the night watching Mamma Mia!.

– Merryl Strip can really sing. Super-trouper should be mandatory for TEST Alliance meetings or at least proposed as the Deklein Coalition anthem.

– Really? Aurum on the PS Store? I fell it is a bit early. This made me wonder if the closed beta will include some sort of Aurum functionality.

– I watched MoneyBall afterwards. If you like baseball, I thoughtfully recommend it.

– I’ll regret this, because the larger the applicant list, the smaller the opportunity to get picked up.

– Still hoping CCP would rename the game to something catchier like Battlefield of Duty.

– You should stop reading this and sign up for the Mordu’s trial.

    I don't know about a DC anthem, but this is the perfect opportunity to link the official GS anthem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uYCmhbZ2AU which is actually a "remix" of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycMR_n4DHmo (same song)

      Digs at riverini should really contain more wit, to really be worth anyone's time.

    I agree, Moneyball was a good watch. We don't have baseball in the UK really, but I still enjoyed it.

    Also, Meryl Streep is a Cougar. Pierce Brosnan should be shot for his rendition of SOS.

    What was this article about again? I've got sidetracked…

    A film about baseball? I hate films about sport. The endings are always gay, the team wins and everyone lives happily ever after.

  6. Pay attention, this is how you call a typo without being a nazi, from seismic stan:

    Also, "Merry Strip"? lol, I presume you're referring to Meryl Streep. I think I'll start referring to her as that from now on – it makes her sound like a Hobbit pornstar.

    "our plan is to have localization for the following languages by Official Launch: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese."

    The game is doomed.

    And the people playing it will be spared from Russians steamrolling them in their very few periods free from resource (both in-game and RL) bitch fights.

    Get with the times.

    It would be Modern Gears: Battlefield of Duty; Snake's Deus Bio Hammer 50k IV
