There up for somepeople but not for others, As time goes on this starts looking more and more like a server problem.

This is disapointing because I cancelled my CE preorder at Gamestop so I could get it at midnight. Had I known it was 8am it would changed that decision. Now I have sacrificed my CE and preorder goodies and still cant play.

Same here I'm in Ohio and I can't get on the server either. Not a good start at al for this game. Makes me worry if this game will fail due to a lack of efficency.

Wow that sucks. I am very disappointed thus far in the game, heck I can't even play the thing. Someone from support needs to get on the ball. This is not a good way to start off at all.

Trust me I have been to many Betas, Pre-Launches and Early Access Game events. Think about this, has anyone seen advertisement for Early Access as Pre-Order Bonus? NO! Ok then so no midnight release :)

Among Pre-Order bonus it said nothing of Early Access :) . That usually causes major retailers to have midnight releases. Servers are NOT up, read carefully NOT up!

Anyone telling you they in game are Liars period. 8 AM sounds bout right, in fact prep yourselves for update soon as disc is in then bottle-neck login so 10 am is a possible :P .

Only reason UK may have gotten them early is some holiday snafu over week end, they only get to look at their copies is all. PC players are able to do early DL so as not to swamp servers at launch time.

So either get some rest or go out or do research, just relax , your not missing out on anything.

Do you know what 8am? Which timezone they are using? As for the rest of ur comments I dont expect a early release. I do though expect when I BUY a game to be able to play it. I know its a crazy thought.

8 am PDT, I know you expect to play soon as you have it, usually an offline or single player thing, this is an MMO ( welcome to my world ) no offline mode so server reliance is a factor, but you will LOVE it :)

Is anyone else getting the message, "Critical: The Defiance service is not available. Please try again later."?

I am on east coast, ran out to Wal-mart to buy the game. I did not play beta so have no pre-existing files on my xbox. I have everything fully patched and when I hit play it says connecting to server then I get booted back to the main menu where it says "Press Start" I press start, says it connects then I just get booted back to the main screen again. It's a vicious circle.

Please tell me I'm not the only one getting this message?

You aren't. Myself and others appear to be experiencing the very same thing.
While it is a bit of a letdown, there's not much that can be done. Wait it out -- I plan to get some sleep so I'll be ready to jump in the game tomorrow.

I know there doing a soft opening to the game to fix stuff. I'm sure they will let more people in as the night goes on. I bet there doing this so all the missions Aren't zerged. On that note WTF I WANT TO PLAY!!!!!!

THATS ALL YOU HAVE TO SAY? l at least am offering a viable explanation as well as answering a question. With Fact!

Let me I guess explain, yes IF you have disc , sure you put it in and no doubt update, doesn't mean you're in game, actually playing as some are claiming. Severs are not up period, you have frustrated players here, now come on seriously. This is Fact unless an Admin comes on and states different.

Think , fact is no early access to game play.

Some as I stated earlier happen to get them at Walmart thinking on getting a leg up etc.

Others well ,
"Only reason UK may have gotten them early is some holiday snafu over week end, they only get to look at their copies is all. PC players are able to do early DL so as not to swamp servers at launch time".

That Means you :D, update and stare at your case is all.

I forgot someone said If I don't believe them look up their Live ID means Nothing , course if your on and with disc, yes its gonna say online "Defiance" LOL, just tells me you're either updating OR clicking to try an log in repeatedly like your life depended on it .
