Defiance: The PC MMO Totally Unprepared for PC

Chris of the Game By Night gaming blog reviews the launch of Trion Worlds' Defiance on PC.

While the core of the game is good, it also holds the distinction of being the first PC MMO launched as a terrible console port. Does the gun play and prospects for cross-media greatness save this Borderlands-like MMO? Click through to find out. (Defiance, PC, PS3, Rift, Rift: Storm Legion, Trion Worlds, Xbox 360)

I'm only curious about this game for the cross-platform element.

Are PC gamers playing with others on the PS3 and 360? Or is everyone on their own servers. Did MS block the PS3 from their users.

That a new MMO is having issues right off the bat is par for the course.

There is no cross platform. It's a tie in with the TV show. Something like they release new missions each week based on what happens in the show and the game or something like that. Really confusing how it works until I see it.

I bought it, and I'm loving it. It certainly does feel like a Borderlands MMO in Third Person. Probably why I like it so much. I've done some of the Episode Missions and it's just basic missions with characters from the show. No decision making or anything. So I have no idea how this will play out, but I'm interested in finding out.
