Hmmm I have all 3 platforms but decided to go with xbox for the beta just because its a lot easier (admittedly im no computer whizz). I wonder if that was a mistake.

You're better off. The game is designed for consoles and ported to PC--probably why PC gets the first beta (more issues to work out).

Amazon.com has the info. Says "Console-native".

I think it can be interpreted differently tho.

And the vids/screenshots. The entire interface is designed for console use and (apparently) doesn't work so well with a mouse.

So far only Joystick is stating it being a PC-Only Beta Weekend, and no actual link to the Trion Press Release (http://trionworlds.com/en/news/press-releases/) (it's not posted here or any SyFy Press Release either...). Yeah...

MMORPG.com (http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/602/view/news/page/1/read/26453/Defiance-First-Beta-Event-Dated.html) brings a little more hope and doesn't say anything about it being PC-only.

Some Alpha invites went out a couple weeks ago, but no Beta invites yet.

Sadly, wouldnt be surprised if it doesnt make on consoles on launch, dealing with Microsoft and Sony must be a huge pain in the ***

They already dumped the tri-platforms servers concept, kinda sad
