Dust 514, CCP's console companion to EVE Online, will cease its open beta operations and begin life as an officially released PlayStation 3 game on Wednesday, May 14, according to the game's official Twitter account. Get it? May 14? A date that could be written as 5/14 if one were so inclined?

See, because the game is called Dust 514, and ... You know what? Never mind. Dust 514 will be free-to-play when it launches, so curious folk can become a tiny, infinitesimal speck in EVE Online's vast shared universe without having to open their wallets.
