Defiance: The first true console MMO is off to a rocky start

After spending a few hours with defiance, it definitely has technical issues.

It does show some promise though. (Defiance, Xbox 360) -

Obviously written by a casual.

Wasn't Phantasy Star Online available to Xbox, and even the Gamecube?

And Dreamcast before that! lmfao

Uh, yeah. Obviously you didn't read the article because he totally mentions FF XI. He even links the comment to the games wiki page.

Your point being? His headline is *still wrong*, no matter how you spin it.

What about Phantasy Star as well.

Very true, although I do mention it right away in the story.

You do, but you miss out on PSU, DCUO, Free Realms and MAG - a little research beyond your immediate experience may have helped some - an Xbox 360 only gamer by any chance perhaps? ;).

You missed a LOT of true console MMOs, which others have already listed.

I'm still down to try this game. It looks awesome.

So you wrote the story? Says at the top your review is in progress, but you're down to try the game?

I don't get it.

Accidental comment, it was supposed to be on another story. My mistake.

I think theirs alot of other MMO games that came out before this one.

I played the beta for this, its a ok game. But I would get it when its at a lower price.

A rocky start. Ya a little. But defiance is actually really good and a lot of fun.

The game is having the obvious first week issues that many games suffer from. That's not an excuse or a defense of it, it's just one of those things where it is what it is.

The game is great, though. I am really enjoying it, it is super easy to jump in with friends, the mechanics are solid. I wasn't going to get this but I was fortunate enough to get in the beta and I was sold. Once the server stuff sorts out, this should be a fun game for a long time.

Defiance should go f2p,wouldn't be the first one, just look at all the mmo games for the pc.

Does anyone have this on PS3? I am interested in this, but besides the usual MMO shakiness at the start, how does it play, is the frame rate bad?
