Shame it wasnt X platform. If that's even possible.
Definately possible - see Portal 2, PS3 PC, only MS would not open the network to a company who does know what they are doing (Steam)

Another game in the dev studio they had a lan match between a PS3 and a Xbox360.

Right, a few problems guys, it appears I can only add players to the clan if you are online so it seems so if you want to send me your gamertag via PM or something that will make that a bit easier as I will be able to tell when you're online but if not I will get around to adding those who post their Defiance in-game username in this thread. Failing that we will all have to arrange a time to get online and I'll do it then.

MS may not of wanted to hand over control to Steam but they are open to cross platform play, just look at Shadowrun (failed experiment since PC gamers had too much advantage), or the recent Skulls of the Shogun and Ascend New Gods, all cross playable between each other from mobile, PC and 360. It's actually something MS are embracing more than anyone else atm.

Yeah I noticed earlier that you can't search for a clan.

Well I'm "Brass Drag0n" on Live and "Brass Dragon" in game.

2mb should be enough, I used to play PSO on the Dreamcast with a 33k dial up modem!

You said you only need the defiance name to send the request is that the characters name or the username from the website?
Just the in-game username.

Is there a DS clan for xbox if so how do i join enjoying the game, well what little I've played bit it feels a bit lonely.

Ooops i should read before posting. How do i join the Digital Spy forum?
Just post your in-game username and I'll add you when you next play it.

The developers are being really open about the initial teething problems, they are busy working hard on solving it so when the servers go down they are doing it for a reason. On the Xbox side of things MS are also helping so a title update will be coming overnight. A lot of people have been moaning about lag on the Xbox so this something we can see improve.

You can read the producer's post here, well worth reading, I really appreciate his openness and honesty on the problems with the launch which is so refreshing to read. A lot of devs could learn a lot from him.

Played the Beta on ps3 and enjoyed it. May get it on PC as disabilities make it awkward to use ps3 for long times. Nice to hear they're keeping people informed they took very good care of the beta testers and seem to be genuinely invested in making this work.

Picked up this after i finished work this morning.

Not had long on it so far but from what i have played i quite enjoyed.

Its strange to have people running around everywhere and doing their own thing, it's not something i'm used to as i'm not familiar with mmo games. At one point a red symbol popped up on my mini map and when i went to check it out there must have been 50+ people all diving about shooting this giant alien thing. I didn't know what to do so i just ran around mopping up the little insect creatures while everyone else seemingly tackled the larger foes.My pea shooter of a pistol wasn't doing much damage anyway so tackling the beast would have had little effect.

I'll be honest with you, so far i have no idea what i'm doing, the menus are confusing to me,and i have not got a clue how to communicate with other people in the open world but i suppose i'll get the hang of it in time.

The best thing about this game so far is that is unlike anything i've ever played before.

My in game user name is 'Heart'

Yeah, the community page is really good and quite informative of the behind the scenes work that is going on - I'd really recommend anyone who plays this game links their accounts, mainly because there are 120 Arkhunter codes hidden around the internet which you can input to unlock additional ingame player content. You get the first code with your registration email (You'll be relieved to hear that all the other codes have been found by others and are posted on various gaming sites already)

Managed to join up with 2 friends who had just got the game last night and it felt so weird for the 3 of us to be riding 3 abreast down a road on our quad bikes heading off to do the side quests. I think I must be getting into MMO's

Can't beat riding along on your quad, noticing a melee at the side of the road, stopping to help out, then getting back on your bike and riding off again!

So far I have only added Brass Dragon to the clan, sorry to mess you guys around but it's not explained very well how it works and it appears I can only invite you with your Xbox gamertag so either post that here or PM me (or FR on XBL with a note to say you're from DS) and I will add you when I see you online.

What I'm gonna do is promote the first few people who join up so they will have the ability to add other member to the clan etc, that should work out ok so long as people join for the right reason and not to troll and kick people for fun etc. I trust you! Hopefully we can get it up and running quicker that way.

Lol I wonder where that name comes from

All this clan talk is really making me consider getting the 360 version, but I can't afford to pay for Gold

Only thing I can suggest with gold is take it for a month (5.99)?

Additionally I have a free month of gold I got with my 360 that I've never used. You're welcome to have that if you like.

Yeah..still a cool name though

Yeah I could do that, I'm sure I can afford that! Thanks

That's very kind of you and thanks for the offer, but I can't accept it I won't be able to get the game for another month or so so I'll decide how I'll feel then. I should be able to save up by that time and hopefully be able to get Gold. Would be good to play with all the folks here Thanks again though.

My broadband is currently playing up (can't receive or make phone calls at all either) and I'm down to about 2mb from my usual 6.6. Defiance is still fine though. Ping is more important than bandwidth for online games. Bandwidth only really matter for the initial download or patches. Mine was 23ms when I tested it on Friday (after my broadband went mental), which is fine for these types of games.
