I used bing on the xbox 360 and searched defiance and it said the amount of players 1-64 i thought that was very, very small for an MMO. Can it even be classed as an MMO.

According to several video's the open world will have hundreds of players per server/shard and the biggest PVP event shadow is a either 50vs50 or 25vs25 ( have to recheck). They don't have the icons for it yet is all.

Found the 360 IGN video, it's an hour long but has alot of info on the game. Enjoy:

It's much larger, Shadow War for example is 96 player battle so 48v48. As far as 1-64, I'm sure that is quote for the regular pvp battles/matches seeing as some maps are capable to have 32v32(64 players.)

For the open world I believe this number is much larger because you are going to be able to sit on the sidelines of Shadow Wars and watch.

If you look at the IGN video, the programmer says they had to have Microsoft bring up a new icon where it says "Players: 1 - 1000" haha

To confirm - the 1 through 64 is wrong. :)

Well as I said xbox most likely just listed it as 1-64 due to the pvp matches, but it is indeed wrong info.

For xbox that would be a MMO but I know Defiance will be bigger than that
