I lost all interest in Dust 514, a game I followed for 2 years, and gained a ton in Defiance all in the span of about 3 hours (a game I've followed for like 2 weeks).

Unexpected chain of events today.

Looks like Trion is putting their streaming technology to good use, now the question is if it will be target-less as I don't want to assume that "FPS" equals that in their minds (though I can't picture how one could call a game FPS and have it targeted). However I always thought the system they used could really move the tech forward. Either way they title now has my attention were it once did not.

Oh. What a strange day.
The DUST announcement below is complete and total lackluster but this:

"Defiance is being developed for the PC, PlayStation® 3, and Xbox 360® entertainment consoles, and features familiar shooter controls."

is full of win.
Well, now I know which "MMOFPS" I'll be waiting for

"Defiance™ is the first-ever open-world shooter MMO. It combines the intense moment-to-moment action of a shooter with the persistence and large-scale campaign play of an MMO."

Way to ignore previous video game history, SyFy and Trion.

I'll probably won't be watching this, but only cause I don't care to spend it on overpriced Cable. Maybe some Youtube leaks...

...but as usual, I'll keep an eye out and see if the gameplay is there and fun.

I havn't seen anywhere that says Defiance will be a Firs Person Shooter. By shooter they could mean just about anything. Who is saying that it is the first-ever open-world shooter MMO? Maybe the first open-world shooter of it's kind, but not the first. Don't forget about WWII online, Planetside/Planetside (NEXT).

"Who is saying that it is the first-ever open-world shooter MMO? "

Apparently Trion is.

On their website where the trailer is. It's the first line in the paragraph.

"well who cares it's just pr stuff "

That many take to heart and as truth and don't treat it like PR stuff.

From politics to medicine to games, maybe you ignore it, but others accept it. I know I don't like getting lied to or misled in a sneaky fashion.

Look at it this way: We still haven't seen any in-game video. XBox is probably different servers from PS3 and those servers can't play with PC users. (I know, not that big a deal.) The game could be great or it could suck. I can't say and you can't either.

But to basically claim you are the first or greatest and ignore all others, while its standard, kinda says something shady. You could dismiss it, but already lots of posts touting it with little evidence of game play: And, I admit, if I like the game, I'll be the first to play. But if not...PR can be a useless thing to hype people up.
