Got my xbox beta invite email just a few minutes ago from trion games. Looking forward to trying it out. Still on the fence about pre-order/day 1 pickup so this should sway me one way or another.

I'd start checking your e-mail now as beta codes are being sent. Just received mine a few moments ago. The beta is a little over 5 gigs which is the least of my concerns at this point. After Infinite I have absolutely nothing else of interest to look forward to this year besides Remember Me so I pray I can get into this something fierce. Servers should be online 8 am PDT (11 am EST I believe).

Some cases of severe lag aside the beta feels pretty damn solid. Very content with what I've seen thus far.

Yeah pretty bad lag for me. Character menu lag, hold x to activate this or that lag, "special power" (forgot what they call it) lag, etc. I played around 11 central this morning for about 30 mins. Will probably try again tonight. I want to like it. Writing so far seems rather generic and voice acting seems ehh. Graphics look pretty nice. Seems complex enough.

Amen. Severe constant lag will be the death of this game as it can utterly cripple you from doing anything even remotely important (reviving yourself or others, activating or completing objectives, opening menus, leaving vehicles, etc.) Oddly enough it rarely prohibits shooting and never seems to affect your ability to throw grenades at all. Dashboarding then booting back up fixes the problem but no one wants to go through that shit on a regular basis. I honestly can't judge the story based on the beta content, but the voice acting sadly is hit or miss.

I plan to play as much as possible because they seriously need the data. If launch week is relatively lag free then I could see myself dedicating a lot of time to this easily.

I'm definitely picking this up, but right now I'm on the PS3 Beta because of PS Plus. If I don't get a 360 Beta invite I'll see you guys once the game comes out.

I know there has been quite a few free 360 floating around. I know IGN just gave out a few. It's a good 5gb at that as well.

Since the patch during downtime the beta has been running buttery smooth. Hardly any lag what so ever. I suggest everyone take advantage of it now while they still can before word spreads, haha.

Yay! No lag at all when I played tonight. Played through both co-op missions with my nephew. I'm really enjoying it so far. Ammo is a little scarce/enemies have a lot of life - but really it's not bad at all - keeps it fun. Random item chests ms point microtransaction offerings a la ME3. But also looks like you can get them with some in-game currency as well. The EGO special powers seem cool - lots to choose from.

Is it down right now? Just tried to log in for the first time and I got a bunch of errors on the title screen, followed by "The Defiance service is unavailable."

Wasn't able to log in last night at all. Pretty negative first impression of the game, I have to say. :P I'll try again before the beta period is over but at this point I'm strongly considering moving the taking the AMZ credit I used to preorder this and putting it on Fuse instead.

Can't decide I 60 dollars like or not. I'd have to see a video of a more polished product before buying. Might hold off for 40 or a part of a b2 g1 sale. I could see myself playing it but I'll probably grow tired of it since I doubt any of my friends will.

Yeah the beta has been pretty solid. The mega arkfalls with a ton of people are a bit laggy for me and my nephew is on an older non-slim xbox and has had a few lockups and glitchy stuff happen during those big arkfalls. My slim just locked up on me for the first time while playing the beta about 30 mins ago. I'm actually *still* on the fence about it. Amazon just put up a 20 amazon video credit but it's only good for the tv show. If they'd just put up even a 10 gc for it I'd do it damnit!

I was able to log on 2 times and it was great but it would end up freezing on me after about an hour in and then it was just too much of a hassle to keep trying through those errors. Still not sure if I will be buying it.

I'm getting it. Just not sure on the version though. I'm debating between the regular edition and the ultimate edition. I don't care for any of the physical items though just the digital stuff that comes with it. Leaning more to the regular since I am all ready getting a bit bored during the beta.

EDIT: nevermind i'm going to wait. I was talking to my friends and there was just too many glitches during the beta and we were all ready getting a bit bored of it. I'd rather wait til a deal and get it during b2 g1 or 40 or under. It felt kind of cheap.

I had assumed 120 was the max though I'm certainly not complaining. I personally can't wait to get my hands on this next week.

Best Buy should be getting it since it seems like a first run pre-order thing and isn't retail specific. I really enjoyed the beta so I'm definitely looking forward to picking this up next week, hopefully my friends who were gonna get it as well stay interested in it so we can have a group going.
