It's probably a stupid thing to ask but would you plug in your keyboard to the PS3 to play Defiance? I'm one of those people that's not big on using a headset (mine's uncomfortable anyway) and I'm more comfortable initiating a text chat before lending my voice, but that's just me.
It's probably not worth the effort of bringing a keyboard down to your PS3 but I'm just wondering if there's a small population that would rather a quick way of putting in text for region chat, etc.

I use this: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-PlayStation-3-Cordless-MediaBoard-Pro/dp/B000W5RBQE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1367874600&sr=8-1&keywords=logitech+keyboard+ps3 sometimes. No need to plug it in and instant text chat if I want.

I dont play on the PS3 (Xbox only) but yeah, I enjoy the keyboard over the headset. I mean its not really like BF3 where you need ppl to move in groups to kill or point out ppl on a sniper perch. The battling is pretty frenzied and IMO you dont need the headset unless joking around with friends while blasting away on the open map.

I used a keyboard on DCUO but I haven't tried it on Defiance yet, but the ps3 does recognize a USB keyboard

I use an Apple bluetooth keyboard. I really only use my mic for clan chat...

Yeah. I'm using an almost brand new like 15 dollar Logitech keyboard that I bought a couple years ago, replaced it with a Razer Anansi. I use it because I don't really like using a mic either, but I was unsure if my PC could run Defiance with playable FPS so I was kind of forced into getting it on PS3

Yes. I'm using a corded usb-keyboard - and a corded headset as well. Don't like these wireless things.

I prefer mic over keyboard, but can understand why people would like the keyboard over mic.

Yep and I still find it very useful especially since I had the motherlode break down on my group and told them all to just die so we can restart :D. Pretty much I just switch my keyboard from one system to the next anyway so I like it, plus I lost my mic again and not buying another one.

I bought a USB keyboard for like 15$ way back when I was still playing FFXI on my PS2, still have it, it still works great.

I just wish there was a way to message people in game privately before you invite em to group. at least then I'd know what a person wanted, since so few people type in chat and I've been having nothing but trouble with Headset chat in this game.

Great to see another vet from FFXI especially one from the PS2 :D -- Yeah there really needs to be more reasoning or something for the chat, hopefully it will be something coming soon.

i bought a USB keyboard, just a random one for a PC, for $1.00.

Yes One US Dollar, and it works fine just as any crappy USB keyboard would.

Plug & Play Baby.

Due to limited bandwidth, I plug mine in and occasionally use it.

The only time I have used my plug in keyboard is when I have to write a ticket about something going wrong in the game. Otherwise controller and mic.
