well the reason i thought about it is because think about back when ps3 was still used. it actually is still supported for other online games. although the recent takedown of Dust: 514 happened, there are still many games that are still supported online. although we still have the worrying of whether they will discontinue the ps4 within the years, it will still be supported my most games. and when the PS4 Pro came out, that was when Xbox One X (Project Scorpio) was announced as well. i get that the playstation 4 cannot handle .EXE files and all, but if you look back at other games that utilize a launcher, such as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, that game utilizes a launcher/login screen. that reason is for updating the game files itself. the usual update for PS4 within the game is just the launcher update. the reason i made this thread was to bring it up for the possibility of at least seeing about whether it will be in the works and supported for a while. as the world of EVE Online grows, so does everything else. i only thought of the idea because those who cannot afford to make monster gaming rigs and have very crappy computers, but have a PS4 (im pretty sure the Xbox One series consoles have no support for keyboard and mouse) will be able to play the game as the processing power of a PS4 or PS4 Pro can handle most of it. besides, with the upcoming release of Eve Online: Project Legion (Dust: 514 Reborn as i like to call it), it can be trial and error. bringing back the issue with support of consoles, ps3 is still accessible on PSN, along with the still fairly new by 3-4 years PS4. and because PS4 Pro came out back in 2016, Sony has already worked on a newer model for the Playstation Series gaming consoles. the PS5 is still not in the works for another 2-4 years seeming it took Sony 4 years to decide on PS4 Pro to beat Xbox One X when that console was announced. i get that the thought of it was probably sent wrong, but i at least wanted to hear feedback on this topic. it was worth a shot trying to make EVE Online work on PS4. i get back when it first released it was released for Windows and all. but because of the slight possibility of it working out in the long run on more consoles, it wouldnt necessarily matter on having PSN. Only a Wi-Fi connection. does a Playstation HAVE to have a PSN connection? i mean, when all other games released for ps4 that are online, only some require the PS Plus subscription. many games such as WarFrame or PlanetSide 2 dont necessarily require you to have a PS Plus subscription. WarFrame im pretty sure is Cross-Compatible with PS4 and PC because WarFrame was originally released for PC but soon put themselves in development for Next-Gen Consoles. in this case, i am pretty sure PS4 got the Cross-Compatibility. if it is released for Xbox One, it probably is cross compatible as well, but there still yet is no game that is just xbox and ps cross-compatible because they are both major gaming series consoles. microsoft has been trying to get sony to agree to do cross-compatibility with some games. but denied that chance. but seeing EVE Online, it got me thinking because some people just have business computers and stuff, or cheap Walmart computers that dont last long, have minimal memory, or just cant meet the minimum requirements for the game. thats when the PS4 comes into play. because it has built in graphics, a goog GPU and CPU, and 12GB of DDR4 (PS4 Pro 12GB DDR5), it can most definitely handle the game. but again, the console support. from PS4 up to whenever CCP chooses to end support, at least when they choose to do this, they can start with 3 Next-Gen consoles starting with PS4 to support them. then go one by one after a few years to work on newer console support. that is what my thoughts were at the very least. i think it is possible, but others dont think it is because CCP devoted the game to only be for and solely for Windows. i get i can run Linux and Wine on my PS4, but i am not risking a JTag and Messing it up on my PS4. i would rather keep it stock and not ruin the console. Lol. at least you all gave me some thought on this though, i appreciate it. i only thought about it as i personally have computers i bought from walmart that can barely even run EVE Online (Intel Processor and Intel Graphics, even when optimized in game for performance). and it would be possible for the most part for PS4 To Handle the game itself. surely CCP has their hands full with Project Legion, but while that game is in development for the next few months or the next year, it wouldnt hurt to at least TRY to see if they can make it work. and if it does, and it works out after hours of gameplay by the developers working in CCP Themselves, they might be able to make use of the PS4, PS4 Pro, and soon the PS5 (or whatever they are gonna call the next Playstation).
