CCP has announced plans that have been under development for a long time. Plans that may very well shake the current state of gaming to it's very foundations. If this takes off, it could seriously revolutionize online gaming as we know it. The gaming landscape could change in ways that we never thought possible.http://www.massively.com/2009/08/18/ccp-games-reveals-new-eve-online-console-mmo-dust-514/

Then ultimately he will be able to control the planet, and therefore the solar system, and therefore the constellation, and the region."
In a nutshell (Cliff's Notes), there's going to be a PS3/360 game called Dust514. It is an MMOFPS game. Massively Multiplayer Online First-person Shooter (for those that don't know the lingo). Playing CROSS-PLATFORM
(PS3-360!!!), Dust514 players fight for control of planets in the EVE universe (this is a PC game...). Corporations in Eve Online can contract FPS clans to attack planets for them. What PS3 and 360 players do will actually AFFECT
the "reality" of thousands of Eve Online PC players.
Can you see the possibilities here? This is truly ground-breaking and has the potential to change everything that is 'online-gaming'. Forever.
This is a very exciting time to be a Caldari pilot.
