April was a rough month for Sony, but that’s only served to make them work harder to regain the respect and attention of gamers. CCP dropped by Sony’s press conference tonight to make an announcement about their upcoming EVE Online FPS tie-in, DUST 514. The title will officially launch exclusively on the Playstation 3 (PS3) console with expanded support on Sony's new handheld system, Vita. Additionally, the game will have its own dedicated Home space and Playstation Move support.

DUST 514 is a persistent online shooter extension of the EVE Online universe. The game will essentially bridge the gap between PC and PS3 players, allowing them to work together from two very different aspects of the EVE Online universe. DUST 514 being the ground-based FPS combat and EVE Online focusing more on the space-faring combat we all know and love.

DUST 514 is expected to release in summer 2012. In the meantime, check out this presentation from CCP's CEO at E3.
