MMO Shooter Defiance Coming to PS3

Defiance is the first persistent online world that plays like a pixel perfect shooter. Unlike other shooter games where you can play co-op with 4 or 8 players at most, Defiance supports thousands of players playing together in a game that never ends.

Wow PS3 is becoming the MMO console with games like this, DCUO, Free Realms, Gundam, Dust 514, etc.

Speaking of MMO's does anybody know what happened to NCSoft PS3 game?

Godmars2902054d ago

What NCSoft game?

Really wondering if MS will allow this on the 360.

gtxgamer22053d ago

I dont think its coming to 360, they havent announced it. Never know

NYC_Gamer2053d ago

Really doubt MS allows this mmo on their console...xbl is just too closed.

Seventh_Blood_Reborn2053d ago (Edited 2053d ago )

There was an agreement between Sony and NCSoft for 3 games, but that agreement was cancelled over a year ago :(

I wanted Guild Wars II on PS3, maybe there will be a chance on PS4 ...

On topic: This game on 360? I doubt it. It' s very well known that MS put always a lot of limits to such projects.

EDIT: I was wrong, it seems it' s really coming on 360 too, the video on the official site says "PC and ConsoleS".

Anyway I' m happy the more games the better, but I want a MMORPG, IMHO Sony should make one with their internal studios instead of waiting FFIV and other games.

and why don't just check the official site first?

not sure why some people think this is PS3 only game

Godmars2902053d ago (Edited 2053d ago )

Their own site doesn't mention any platform by name. Not even PC.

For that matter there's a difference between the game being on the Xbox and MS allowing cross platform gaming. MH, FF11 and PSO are all on their own server separate from PC. As far as I know anyway.

Why are they making this out to be a PS3 exclusive?

@yourfather: I'm not seeing that on the site you linked. I clicked all if the tabs (universe, show, and game) without finding what you pasted.

Godmars2902053d ago (Edited 2053d ago )

Does it really matter when the real question is will MS allow cross-platform play.

@WrAiTh Sp3cTr3:
Same reason MS sites never mention multiplatform titles as being multiplatform titles. Unless its also PC.

xbox already has MMO's. PSU and FF.

Persistantthug2053d ago

What must be clarified, is that those games are pretty much exceptions to the rule.
The reason Microsoft allowed those games to coexist on XBOX 360/ XBOX LIVE is because early on, Microsoft was interested and desperate to get japanese developers and japanese gamers onto XBOX.

However, These days, it seems Microsoft is pretty much only interested in KINECT..... unfortunately.

CarlitoBrigante2053d ago

Wow another PS3 exclusive???

Sony think about my wallet!

Virtual_Reality2053d ago

Don't forget about Final Fantasy XIV Online rebuild version for PS3 in 2012 or 2013.

Christopher2053d ago

Champions Online is no longer owned by NCSoft and is not coming to consoles.

PlayStation®3: console with the most MMO shooters. ;)
This game looks awesome. I'll be keeping an eye on it.

gtxgamer22053d ago

Hope its free 2 play, considering alot of games are going F2P i wouldnt doubt if this one did either

Why are people so persistent to disagree with fact on N4G? Conveniently when the game is considered to be a Playstation exclusive, the comments are consistently similar, "Day one", "This looks amazing", despite the trailer showing little apart from generic enemy models and large player counts. My prediction is that immediately after the fact has settled in that the title isn't exclusive people will mysteriously lose interest in the title...

I'll hold off my opinion of the game as we have very little to go off of from the Pre-Alpha gameplay footage. It's concept seems somewhat intriguing...

Lilioups2053d ago (Edited 2053d ago )

Looks good gonna buy it for pc and ps3

SPAM-FRITTER-1232053d ago

im not buying it for anything, it look garbage.

the old republic & DC universe are great games though.

VonBraunschweigg2053d ago (Edited 2053d ago )

Very promising, but I'm not getting my hopes up too high. 256 players on one map is possible on PS3, but a thousand? I don't think so, definitely not on 360 and this seems to be multiplatform if you chech the official site. We need more info, but I think this will be a multiplatform game without cross platform play, where every single battle on PC, PS3 and 360 contributes to a bigger ongoing fight in one universe, one server so therefore a thousand players in one game but not in one multiplayer session. Like with Dust 514, matches are 24 vs 24 (for now) but every match can influence a persistent universe, 'one game', with thousands of players. Dust is also called a FPS MMO, but the MMO part reflects the meta game with EVE, not the individual games you play, win or lose every 30 minutes or so.

Intriguing though, can't wait to hear more. Dust, Defiance, gaming needs initiatives like this.

Christopher2053d ago

It will likely be 1,000+ on a server, but they will use instances to keep the numbers to 24-32 players in the same area.
