Right so the beta is region locked

I cannot play with friends from the US


Is the retail version going to be region locked?

If it is then this game will sink fast

From Sledgehammer70:

You have to set your PS3 region on your system.

Yea but it isnt even in the beta where they should be testing it

Trion havnt even confirmed it either unless you have source

I sure hope the full PS3 version isn't region locked. I had to redeem my beta code with an EU PS Account. I can easily play with the friend I gameshared it with, but cannot play with anyone else who have the NA beta. It would really suck if they kept the player base split up like that in the full release :(

Don't see why PS3 would be region locked since it's had MMO's before. A confirmation would be nice though.
360 on the other hand.... :confused:

PS3 still has MMO's running DCUO but it also has Eu and NA servers you dont swap.

And?

It still doesnt answer the question

Will Defiance be region locked for the PS3 when its released on the 2nd of April

So far Triton wont answer it, the devs dont know, sony doesnt know

I hope we get a response or some sort of definitive answer. me and my mate from Australia were plannin on making a clan together. if we cant play together that's really gonna suck hardcore donkeyball sauce.

From Sledgehammer70:

And that means you need to create new psn for other region.
You cant play on US server with eu psn account, but you can create second psn account and set its region to US.
So basically its region locked but there is way around it, but this could change on full game (we will see how it is on release)

So they dont know either

Its a pretty big problem, it will either make or break this game

Well either that or the stupid AI, poor voice comms, crap arc events, meh gameplay will

There is no current answer hence the question.
They will probably tell us just as the pre-orders are dropping through our letter boxes and you can guess what the answer will be.
Off course they know. They would have this info in the game specifications when the game is going through developing and testing cycles.

Answer 2nd of april

Yea just wait for the influx of tears from pre order suckers if it is region locked

Devs havnt been clear on the issue at all except for microsoft, so they are keeping quiet for a reason which most likely means its the answer we dont want

Which means M$ payed them to keep it quiet cause they whine and complain about any game showing favor to anything other than Xbox...

I do think I gave a answer to this. And it was posted Microsoft requested the Xbox version be locked. And I havent seen a PS3 MMO that wasnt region locked yet. you have NA and EU servers. And you cant swap data from one to the other.
