A video game that is going to interact directly with a live action TV show!?!? That is such an original and unique idea.... /sarcasm.

So with the release of Xbox1, I, unlike some others, was not initially to worried about Xbox's continuing support of Defiance on the 360 even tho the X1 isnt backwards compatible. Until I did some more reading and discovered the game (and apparent TV show) Quantum Break, now it isnt set in a futuristic semi apocalyptic world with aliens from what I can tell... but it is the same model base the Defiance platform is working off of now "letting the show and game collide"

So maybe Defiance is already on a downhill slope... thoughts?

Your thread title needs to be edited.

Should you consider Defiance on a downward slope, please feel free to leave, trade in and leave more <insert favourite mob here> for the rest of us to slaughter.

Muted ... I kid. You have to seriously give them some time. Most games have one to two gear life spans in the console world. Granted people will play them longer, while others will play them a lot shorter. I do not understand why people are on this negative Nancy trip regarding Defiance.

Play the game. Watch the show. Relive the moments. Enjoy it while it is here. Think of the things to come.

Ha! I was not getting defensive by any means. Just we have plenty of time until the next gen systems are out. Just need some patience. ;)

Careful apparently they don't like you advertising/talking about other games here.
Trion doesn't like competition

While I don't know if Quantum Break really is a Defiance-like Game/Show crossover, I think it would be good if it was. I want people to iterate and improve on interesting ideas.

Imagine this: You watch the TV show streaming from your XBOX, and then at key moments in the show you could be launched directly into the game to fight some important battle. They could even have multiple endings in the show based on how you do. Maybe those are bad ideas but you can see the potential an Xbox hosted tv show / game combo could be.

I know, right? I'm not trying to bash Defiance, I love Defiance. If anything I'm mad at this Quantum Break game/series cause the advertise it like the first of its kind. A game that crosses over with a series, and my response to that is "Uh, hello?" .... it just has me slightly more worried now that the X1 has a game planned with the same cross over content that Defiance has pioneered. Also, Quantum Break should give props were props is due.

I think this is more in line with what they might be planning. Instead of having the show and game be two separate entities that can be enjoyed on their own, Remedy might be planning a show/game that are one in the same. Watching the show will transition directly into the game and vice versa. Remedy played around a little with the cross media experience with Alan Wake and their live action "Bright Falls" web shorts.
