155w 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 Bioware's 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 latest-and-greatest graphical technology 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 Dark Horse Comics to summarize the first game in a 15 minute comic-style adaption, completely...
200w ago - According to Kikoo.pl, 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 CVG 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."
217w ago - Just a day after the rumor that Mass Effect 2 was slated to hit PS3 in 2010 came a second based on a listing from EA's Russian Web site for Left 4 Dead 2.
Today EA has confirmed to VG247.com (linked above) that both listings are an error, and have now been corrected. Whether both titles will stay exclusive to Microsoft in the future or not remains to be seen.
To quote: "Listing has been taken down. It's now a Xbox 360 only game again.
EA insist both listings for Mass Effect 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 were posted in error."
217w ago - Update: RPGSite.net has now revealed that EA's official Russian Web site also lists Mass Effect 2 as being for Xbox 360, PC and PS3, however, BioWare has simply issued a 'no comment' on it.
To date, BioWare has neither confirmed or denied the existence of a PS3 version of Mass Effect 2.
However, JustPushStart.com (linked above) has uncovered a listing on retailer giant GAME's Web site for a PlayStation 3 version set to release on 10/01/2010 with an item code of MASSEFPS3.
The listing currently shows an unknown publisher and developer, and to quote:
"There's been rumor that Mass Effect titles will be ported to the PlayStation 3 but up until now, no official confirmation. Whether or not this is true is truly up to Bioware if they ever decide to put it on the PlayStation 3. As of now, we will have this as a rumor.
Mass Effect 2 is slated to come out early next year for the XBOX 360 and PC early next year."
