Hey super excited about the Defiance release on Tues. JW for people who have playd demo if a ps3 keypad is a good investment for talking with guild/party something a little better than typing each individual key. Let me kno your thoughts.

I'd say so. I'm using an old Logitech usb keyboard I bought for Everquest on PS2. Still works great. Anything has to be better than using the virtual keyboard.

Are you talking about the little phone keyboard thing that attaches to the controller?
Personally I dislike that thing I find it easier to type with a full sized keyboard, I use an old logitech USB one. It would be cheaper as well, unfortunately I didn't try it on the beta so I am not sure if it could interfere with the controls.

I use a usb keyboard that was used for my ps2 works great. Only downside is in the beta it was a bit difficult to use instantly I had to call up the chat window. However I am sure it is integrated better we where beta runing a old build.

I have the ps3 keyboard that attaches to the controller, I use it free standing though without attaching it, quick and saves space when it's just laying around, but I love it

I want to say it was called Castle Lightwolf... but idk for sure. I miss it too. I kept thinking EQ2 would show up on PS3.

I've got the keypad and it's under a thick inch of dust probably, shoved in a drawer lol. The keys are far too small, if you have big fingers like me it's a pain, and you can't really see what you are typing when it gets darker even with a lamp or something it really just is a pain.

I have a cheap bluetooth keyboard and would recommend that 100% if you can't get a bluetooth one then a usb keyboard is fine too, anything besides the keypad but that's my personal opinion. :)

I mostly rolled solo, so the only time I felt the need to communicate during the beta was to tell people not to kill the little hell bugs at the ark falls where you destroy the crystal. I was of course ignored. When I was with other people, they were usually randoms that I saw doing something so I'd stop to help them fight. I'd wear the Lawman outfit and patrol, looking for people like that.

I use a Bluetooth keyboard that I got for my iPad and it works great in keyboard-enabled PS3 games. It cost a bit more than a USB keyboard but it's more compact so it fits better on my little TV table I got. I use it for DCUO and Dust 514 and it works like a dream.

Using a mic, simply too lazy to type. In most games i dont read typed chat as well, its an annoying break away from dynamic games. Cant be bothered with that during exciting gameplay and total anarchy. For me -but thats personal preference of course- no mic = no teaming up.

I prefer using a headset, but i bought a brand new logitech wireless keyboard and mouse that goes with my ps3 and 50" tv works wonderfully.

I have the keypad, unfortunately I dropped the controller one day and the clip on the back snapped off. I now use a $15 USB keyboard and it works fine.

EQ next has the potential of showing up on PS4
