238w ago - We've managed to take the first real time shots of Mass Effect 2, both in-game cutscenes and gameplay, taken from the Mass Effect 2 prelude video leading up to E3.
It's the first time there has been proper screenshots on the net from Mass Effect 2, and there certainly will be more in the run up to E3 itself when it kicks off in the first week of June between June 2nd and June 4th.
We'll hopefully also know more from Microsoft's E3 press conference from June 1st as well as EA's press conference that same day itself.
The game is out early next year, Q1 2010, for the Xbox 360.
247w ago - With the news surfacing about BioWare - who is now wholly owned by Electronic Arts - formally announcing Mass Effect 2 for the Xbox 360 and PC, it has become rather obvious that this wasn't heading to the PS3 and here's a few possible reasons why.
First of all, back when BioWare wasn't owned by Electronic Arts, Microsoft had already published the first game for the Xbox 360 with intentions (much like Gears of War) to maintain a new franchised trilogy for the Xbox brand. People can argue semantics, publishing and trademark rights all they want, but consider Col. Sheppard the tertiary mascot next to Master Chief and Marcus Fenix.
It was reiterated time-over and again that Mass Effect was going to be an Xbox 360 trilogy. And even while Casey Hudson denied plans for a PC rendition of Mass Effect in an interview with Gamer 2.0, it was obvious the big bad MS wasn't going to let gold slip through their fingers...especially considering that the Games for Windows platform is utter crap and needed something good in its library.
The fact that Hudson lied about the PC version could prompt some gamers to believe that Mass Effect 2 could still be heading to the PS3. However, the difference...

Press Release: BIOWARE ANNOUNCES MASS EFFECT 2
The Dark Second Chapter to the Epic Science-Fiction Trilogy - Coming Early 2010 for Windows PC and Xbox 360
EDMONTON, Alberta, Mar 17, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) - Leading video game developer BioWare™, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS), today officially announced the development of Mass Effect™ 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the multi award-winning 2007 hit, Mass Effect. The Mass Effect trilogy is a masterful science-fiction adventure set in a vast universe filled with dangerous alien life forms and mysterious uncharted planets.
"We're going to surpass the extraordinary gaming experience we brought our fans in Mass Effect by delivering intensified combat and expanded weapon options as well as increased depth of planet exploration, all while delivering a powerful, emotionally engaging story," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, General Manager and CEO, BioWare and General Manager and Vice President, EA.

249w ago - The current issue of Play features an interview with BioWare CEO Dr Ray Muzyka, in which he talks about Mass Effect, Dragon Age and how much he loves the PS3.
We couldn't fit it all into the mag, so here are some 'extras' from the interview:
Play: How are you finding it being part of EA? How has the acquisition changed BioWare?
Ray: We've evolved every year we've been in business and I think we're at a good place. It's great to be part of a large stable company.
Another benefit is also that we're now a developer, but also a publisher. Obviously development is still a big focus for us, but it's great to be a publisher at the same time so we can get to combine everything and make sure you're doing all things right.
We have to adapt. We're part of a larger company now. We have a whole bunch of products of our own, but EA's a very big company overall.
Play: Your older games on the PC are known for their depth and detail. Is it difficult to maintain those qualities when making a game that has to be accessible to console gamers?
Ray: We have an obligation always to make our games as accessible as possible, and yet you don't have to lose the depth and richness of the tactics, the systems,...
