BioWare Announces Mass Effect 3 Demo is Coming Today to PSN

200°
128w ago - BioWare Community and Social Media Manager Jessica Merizan has officially announced that the Mass Effect 3 demo is coming today to PSN!

To quote: Mass Effect 3's new demo is launching later today on the PlayStation Network.

Voted "Most Anticipated Game of 2012" at the Spike Video Game Awards, Mass Effect 3 plunges you into the boots of Commander Shepard, a decorated marine and war hero, as players lead the charge in an all-out galactic war against a nearly unstoppable foe.

Today marks the arrival of our single-player demo for the PS3, giving you a taste of what to expect when Commander Shepard takes Earth back on March 6th. When you download and play the demo, you'll see that how you fight the war is entirely up to you.

Choose your appearance and pick from a variety of specialized combat classes, each with unique and devastating abilities. As you progress in this war, you'll choose which abilities to specialize in, which weapons to bring into battle, and which characters will join you in combat.

There's more to this demo, though - starting on February 17th, PS3 owners will be able to play multiplayer for the first time in the Mass Effect universe! As a special bonus, Battlefield 3 owners who have redeemed an online pass on the PlayStation Network will get early...
 

Mass Effect 3 PlayStation 3 Co-op Report: All 4 One Details

350°
144w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up an All 4 One co-op report today on Mass Effect 3 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Yes, Virginia, there is a multiplayer mode in Mass Effect 3. And it's in the form of a galaxy-spanning PSN cooperative campaign that pits two to four players against wave after wave of relentless Reaper forces.

In this way, the basic premise of Mass Effect 3's Galaxy at War co-op mode is not unlike Call of Duty's Nazi Zombies or Modern Warfare 2's Spec Ops, only with the series' robust RPG progression system making the jump in full force.

In my demonstration of Galaxy at War, Bioware's team first teased what looked to be a large, interactive map that will enable teams to hop into different theaters of war spread around the galaxy.

You won't be able to port your Commander Shepard into the co-op Galaxy at War mode; instead, you'll create a new character from scratch, earning XP by slaying enemies and completing objectives.

The co-op scenarios are heavily combat focused, though simple objectives - such uploading computer files or disarming bombs - creep in from time to time. The pace is fast-paced and grueling, and your goal is simple: outlast your Reaper attackers.

189w ago - Today Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has made available a new video showcasing the definitive version of Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3.

To quote: If you had asked me a year ago if I thought we'd ever experience the Mass Effect universe on PlayStation 3, I'd have said "I sure hope so."

One year and dozens of accolades and Game of the Year nominations later, Mass Effect 2 is coming to PS3. And from what I've learned, you're not going to want to pass on this "definitive" experience.

After a recent hands-on session, I spoke with [Register or Login to view links] Casey Hudson. In this video, he tells us what bonus features are included on the Blu-ray, what the power of PlayStation 3 lends to the game, and how the PS3 version is using the [Register or Login to view links] and gameplay updates.





So, you might be wondering, will you be lost if you never got to play the original Mass Effect? From my experience, the answer is: not particularly. For the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2, Bioware has teamed with [Register or Login to view links] to summarize the first game in a 15 minute comic-style adaption, completely...
 

Video: Mass Effect 2 Announced for PS3 at GamesCom 2010

350°
206w ago - A big one at GamesCom this year, Mass Effect 2 will be available on Sony's PS3 entertainment system as of January, 2011.

The PS3 version of the game will feature the original game with "hours of bonus content", although what this content could be is up to speculation.

Personally I believe that the game will ship will all current DLC packs and maybe any that become available before January.

However, there are currently no plans to bring Mass Effect 1 over to the PS3, but there is the hope that the inevitable Mass Effect 3 might be released on both consoles at the same time upon release.

Rumor: PC Code Reveals Mass Effect 2 May Come to the PS3

500°
234w ago - According to [Register or Login to view links], some PS3 code found in the PC version of Mass Effect 2 reveals that the title may come to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

Mass Effect going multi-platform is one of those things that have been speculated about constantly since Electronic Arts bought BioWare back in 2007.

To quote: "EA is not known for having console exclusives and prefers to put its titles on every console in existence.

However, BioWare had an exclusivity with Microsoft for the original Mass Effect to appear only on the Xbox 360 and PC and it is presumed that the exclusivity deal extends to the game's sequels as well.

Meanwhile, Electronics Arts is skillfully deploying "No comment" lines when [Register or Login to view links] asked about the possibility of Mass Effect 2 appearing on the PlayStation 3. Check out the code that Kikoo claims to have found for yourself below."
