EVE Online developer CCP has confirmed rumours that its exclusive console game Dust 514, which is to tie in with its wildly popular PC MMO, will be available only on PlayStation 3.

CCP also announced that the Dust 514 experience will be 'extended' to Sony's upcoming handheld, the PlayStation Vita - formerly known as the NGP.

Dust 514 will also offer a new PlayStation Home space, as well as PlayStation Move support.

CCP will be hosting a closed beta towards the end of the year, with a full release over the PlayStation Network in Spring 2012.

'We're taking a console shooter and connecting it directly to a PC MMO," said CCP's Hilmar Veigar P├ętursson told at Sony's E3 2011 press conference, who also claimed that Dust 514 and EVE Online will share one 'vibrant universe'.
