Geoff Keighley: Mass Effect 2 Will "Eventually" Come To PS3
After EA snapped up BioWare, everyone just assumed that future products from the preeminent role-playing developer would be multiplatform. After all, mega-publishers like EA just don't do "exclusive."
However, neither BioWare or EA has confirmed that Mass Effect 2 would be coming to the PlayStation 3, despite the fact that Dragon Age: Origins most certainly did and BioWare said they would continue to work with Sony's machine. But is an official ME2 PS3 unveiling looming large on the horizon? According to GamesThirst citing a statement by G4 host Geoff Keighley, it may only be a matter of time:
"Now the fact that [Mass Effect 2] is only on Xbox 360, a lot of debate now about whether it makes sense for publishers to make those games exclusive to a platform. I think the game will eventually come out for PlayStation 3 but they just can’t talk about it yet."
We've heard similar comments before but does Keighley know something we don't? Perhaps the most telling factor in this debate is the way in which BioWare or EA deals with the question: they almost never deny that Mass Effect 2 will eventually end up on the PS3. They usually just say something like, "no comment" or, "we can't talk about that right now," which has always led optimistic PS3 owners to believe it's inevitable. It really makes very little sense for this hotly anticipated sequel to remain exclusive; EA knows they'd be eliminating around 25 million potential customers. But we'll just have to wait and see...
