Dragon Age Confirmed For PS3, 360

This is good news in more ways than one. Way back in 2004, BioWare officially revealed Dragon Age, which is considered to be a successor to the acclaimed Baldurs Gate franchise. At first, it was only announced for the PC - it was 2004, remember, so that's not surprising - but in 2005, GameSpot revealed that it "will be on other platforms."

Well, finally, we now know what those platforms are: the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. According to the November issue of Game Informer, Dragon Age: Origins is confirmed for both systems and has the vague release estimate of "holiday 2009." This puts it only a few months behind the PC version, and GameSpot confirmed the magazine's listing as true. So obviously, this is good news, but think about it: this is the first PS3 project for BioWare. Thus far, they've only worked with the Xbox 360; you may recall a little game called Mass Effect. It was published by Microsoft but EA now owns BioWare, and we all know that EA isn't so interested in purposely shrinking profits by limiting game releases to only one platform. So, with Dragon Age: Origins headed to the PS3, can it be safe to assume that Mass Effect 2 will appear on Sony's console as well...? It's only a theory, but with the third-party exclusive slowly dying out, it seems all the more possible.

Anyway, we'll bring you more details on Origins as they become available. At the very least, it's another RPG to look forward to on the PS3; they're finally starting to pop up here and there, aren't they?

I hope mass effect 2 does come to the ps3. i played mass effect and could see why the 360 owners were all smug like!! but in all fairness..if the ps3 gets this then xbox360 is left with nothing that interests me except halo 3and thats only because of the online splitscreen play.

Is there any ps3 game that has splitcreen online does anybody know?

Why would you want split screen online? Usually split screen will be local (offline) for 2-4 players depending on the game... how would split screen online work?

because its fun if you have friends over. its as simple as it sounds: you have 2-4 people in an online match together on the same screen. for example, in warhawk, you join a match that allows splitscreen, then your buddies hit the start button on their controllers...
the other players show up with your online name and a circled number (2)-(4).
360 actually allows each controller to be logged into different accounts on the same screen

SC Warhark is the only way to go if you want to do SC at all. And it's so much better IMO. However, none of my friends have a PS3, well some don't even have a console either, so my opinon could be different. But either way, I think it's awesome.

Thank the lord! Bioware is finally dropping some RPGs for the PS3. I personally am not a big fan of FPS's primarily because I grew up with these on the PC and have never found a console controller suitable for them, so it's great to see the PS3 finally getting some action RPGs.

If they bring the Mass Effect franchise to the PS3, then the only game left on the 3fixme that I would want is Fable 2.

Fable 2 graphics didn't look so fantastic to me, rather similar to Fable 1's. As far as this one goes I hope they kick it up a notch, Baldurs Gate was too storyless for me. I don't like the major point of the RPG to be wondering about collecting sundries while whacking a dummy over the head now and then. Gimme turn based! Bioware has grown up a bit though, so I'll be keeping an eye peeled. Love me some RPGs.

Huh.... my comment appears to have evanesced into nothingness.

Anyways, just mentioned that Warhawk has split-screen online play, which works like normal split-screen, except you're online.

If PS3 gets MassEffect2 and not the first then I'll probably be buying both for the 360 when I get my 360 this xmas. That is, if they are both the same.

Well BioWare has been silent exaclty how SuareEnix was with FF13 so im guessing there puting Mass Effect on PS3 unless Microsoft tries to buy the Consule rights to that game for 360. And seeing as Mass Effect was on PC after a few months I say they are already 3/4 or 1/2 way done with a PS3 port. For EA the lure of PS3 without a Big RPG right now cires MONEY!!!

BioWare is saying that they "have no plans for a PS3 port of Mass Effect". Which is exactly the same wording they used about a PC port of the game when it was released on the Xbox, and six months later there it was. If they truly had no intentions of bringing it over, or were prohibited from doing so by Microsoft, then they should just come out and say so. But their silence might be speaking volumes.

I don't have a Crashbox, is Mass Effect really good? Looks like '09 might be the year it loses it's exclusives and RPGs come home to PS3.

It was the last new game I bought before I dumped the system in favor of my PS3. I thought it was phenomenal. In my opinion there were 3 game of the year contenders for 2007: Uncharted, God of War 2, and Mass Effect.

If you PS3 only users are only getting Mass Effect 2 and the first one doesn't release on the system, you are missing out on ALOOOOT of story my friends.

I'm not here for a flame war, 360 put-downs are part and parcel to Playstation sites, sit tight, you get used to it. It's the same on the other side.

Cool Buck, another sequel to look out for. One question (for anyone) if M$ published the original Mass Effect but EA now owns Bioware, does that mean ME1 can or cannot get a PS3 port?

ok, Bioshock is coming to PS3, Mass Effect 2 highly likely comes to PS3 too, Eternal Sonata comes to PS3 too, The Last Remnant will come to PS3 at a slightly later time than Nov. 2008, Star Ocean 4 is just confirmed to come to PS3 later on, ---with all these happening, the xbox360 is really losing its exclusives. and I dont care about Halo 3 that much anyway. Great direction for PS3, (altho I do have xbox360 for Lost Odyssey lol, and probably pick up Fable II too. I do think its a pitty PS3 does not get Lost Odyssey)
