OPM UK Rumors: Mass Effect, Dead Rising 2 For PlayStation 3
Whenever new magazine issues hit stores, we're always interested to see what rumors are included within its pages. As it turns out, the latest edition of OPM UK introduces a few new rumors and restates a few old ones; all of which are well worth mentioning.
First up, it seems that Capcom is developing Dead Rising 2 for multiple platforms, and of course, that includes the PS3. If you don't remember, the original - a solid and very entertaining action title - was exclusive to the Xbox 360, but Capcom isn't siding entirely with Microsoft anymore. No, they just brought over Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, remember? Secondly, the supposed theme of Team ICO's new game "has links to Norse myths," but for now, that's all we know. Thirdly, Netflix is preparing to offer movie downloads that can be directly accessed through the PS3, which isn't a new rumor, but it's good to hear again.
However, the last bit of news is easily the biggest: as some gamers and analysts have theorized, it now seems certain that Mass Effect and its upcoming sequels will make their way to Sony's console. We figured this might be the case, what with EA becoming involved in the franchise, and OPM UK says it might be a fact. Microsoft may have paid a hefty chunk of change to keep Bioshock exclusive, but such is not the case with Mass Effect. Now, all we have to do is wait and see if Sony denies or confirms any of this...
