Whether you have your doubts about Trion Worlds' Defiance – a first of its kind MMO transmedia project that lets what happens in the television show of the same name on the SyFy Network affect what happens in the virtual world you are playing – the game seems to be doing well within its first month or so of operation. According to Trion Worlds, over one million people have registered accounts for the game since it launched on April 3.
The game is certainly helped by being available on three platforms: the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC..
Defiance charges players with searching a future earth ravaged by aliens and 50 years of global war for alien technology.
"We're incredibly proud that after five years of development, we are bringing this ambitious project to life," said Trion's Nathan Richardsson.
"The game launch is just the beginning of a truly unique entertainment experience."

It will be interesting to see how Trion Worlds can hold onto those players and to bring those who are watching the show on SyFy into the virtual world. If they can do that then this game has a chance of surviving in the long-run.
