Mass Effect 2 Headed To PS3 After All?
When it comes to console exclusives, there will always be surrounding rumors that pertain to the multiplatform possibility. Such has been the case for Bioware's popular and critically acclaimed RPG, Mass Effect.
Now, when EA snagged the title, most PlayStation 3 followers believed it was all but inevitable: surely they would bring the sequel to Sony's platform; EA simply doesn't believe in sacrificing sales for the sake of console exclusivity. But when Mass Effect 2 was announced, EA only revealed versions for the Xbox 360 and PC, which came as a big disappointment to some PS3 owners. However, since that time, we've seen multiple rumors and pieces of evidence that point towards a PS3 release for the hotly anticipated sequel, and the latest comes courtesy of RPG Site citing the Russian branch of EA. As you can see, Mass Effect 2 is listed as coming to the 360, PC and yes, the PS3. Furthermore, UK retailer GAME also has a PS3 listing for ME2 in their database and combined with the other piece of info, has sparked plenty of discussion. We've always wondered why EA would cut out nearly 25 million potential customers by ignoring the PS3 but perhaps they had their reasons...maybe they're just waiting for the right time to announce the existence of the PS3 version.
On the other hand, this could all be false information. We're hardly the only ones who find it hard to believe that EA would produce a console exclusive title this generation, so maybe those retailers are just assuming. But if they're right, it's yet another great RPG that's headed our way.
