I bought defiance on the ps3 when it came out last April. But I have now moved to xbox and I'm not going to pay for it again as it's simply not worth the money. But it is a good little game worth a free download to pass a bit of time now and then while I wait for friends to come online and we play a proper game. So my question to mature players who know what they are talking about is this:


1 Is defiance ever going to be free on xbox?
2 Can I port my ps3 account over to xbox?

Any help on these matters would be great

Our free to play is supposed to be released with the Aftermath DLC sometime this month.

You can not port your character to a different system or server. Your owner goodies will not transfer to another system. If you want all the benefits of a disc owner then you have to buy a new disc for the system you are switching to. It has to be new so you know the code wasn't already used.

Honestly you are better off picking it up new (if you can find it) so you have all the paid benefits:


I currently own Defiance, what benefits will I get when F2P releases?

All Defiance owners will enjoy more character slots, loadouts, ark keycode capacity, and inventory slots than free-to-play accounts. For those looking to expand what they already have, we'll even be offering increases to these limits. Defiance owners will have the following on their account when F2P launches:

•Character Slots: 4
•Loadouts: 5
•Ark Keycode Maximum: 75
•Inventory Slots: 70
◦Existing characters will retain any extra inventory slots they have

•30-Day Paradise Patron Pass
•Grant of 1000 Arkforge


What will I receive if I am a F2P player only?

Once F2P launches, players who join the Ark Hunt will receive the following on their account:

•Character Slots: 2
•Loadouts: 2
•Ark Keycode Maximum: 50
•Inventory Slots: 35

I'd say the benefits make it worth 8.00$ since it would cost a lot more than that to buy the extra stuff separately from the bit store.

I concur with Atticus Batman (http://forums.defiance.com/member.php?4826333-Atticus-Batman),

Defiance - Xbox 360 on Amazon:

Price: $6.98 http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/search-and-discovery/prime/check-prime-45x13._V325679749_.gif You Save: $13.01 (65%)

You will spend more on bits just to come even with what you get for less than $7 new. And with free shipping from Amazon, even if you get it used from Gamestop- online orders you pay shipping. And a concrete store you spend money for gas there and home.

But remember he said used from Gamestop. a used copy may be a fail, NOT a win, since the physical copy of the game isn't the important thing. The code on the back of the manual is, but most game codes that come with used games are normally already used, so it won't give you benefits of owning the game, since you can't use a pre-used code. Now if they find a new copy for really cheap at that nearby Gamestop then it is win-win.

Honeslty just buying the game is the best option. Its cheap, not like its 50 or 60 bucks. I'm on the PC and glad i spent the 9.99 on it. Buying the 7th legiion dlc pack soon as the new patch is out though. :cool:
