The lights are on
[Update #2] Servers for the patched platforms (PC and Xbox 360) are now back online. Be aware that many users are reporting a variety of problems. The official Defiance forums have the most current information available as Trion Worlds gets things ironed out.
[Update #1] Trion has also taken the PC version down for patch-related maintenance. It seems problems are popping up on both platforms. The PS3 version of the update has not yet been rolled out.
It’s great that Trion Worlds is patching Defiance, but the 360 fix is causing some new problems. As many users in the official forums have noted (and we can confirm from our own tests), the update for the game on Microsoft’s console causes some pretty significant problems.
When attempting to play the game post-patch, the following message appeared.
Trion Worlds is aware of the problem and is working to repair the patch. We’ll update when more information is available. If you haven’t yet watched the show’s premiere (which aired last night), now would be a fine time to do that.

I kind of want this game because it does look cool, but the user reviews seem split 50/50. I'm cutting back on buying games until the next Xbox comes out and have several games to maybe keep me busy for awhile (like blops 2, Halo 4 and Gears J), but I bounce back n forth a lot due to frustration (mostly for blops 2 connections).
I really want Destiny when it rolls bout but I'll wait to get the next gen version and was wondering if Defiance will have a big enough crowd playing it till later in the year. I'd like to try it but if there isn't many people still playing it down the road it's kind of worthless to get invested into it. Hmmmmm
Well....I have the game but won't stop me from playing it. Yet I'll be playing SWTOR while issues get ironed out now. Got to deal with Hutts now in a Galaxy Far Far Far Away...
Haven't played the game today so I haven't downloaded the patch. I'll just wait for the green light before I play.
Damn. I was super excited to play. This is such a great game.
I'm glad that I gave this a pass. Perhaps I'll try it in a few months when the price drops. Maybe it'll be fixed by then.
Just lost connection on PS3.... of course I was also fighting with about fifty other people within a few dozen yards of me so that might have had something to do with it.
