World Of Mass Effect Will Finally Grace The PlayStation 3
We swear we can't predict the future. We're not oracles. ...it just seems that way.
Less than 48 hours after it was determined that PSXE readers most want Mass Effect 2 - of all the top-notch games not available on the PlayStation 3 - it has been announced that a PS3 version of the excellent RPG is headed our way. Freshly revealed at GamesCom this morning, EA and BioWare have announced that Mass Effect 2 for the PS3 will arrive in January, and it'll feature "hours of bonus content." We don't have all the full details just yet but we figured you guys would want to know ASAP, right? According to some sources, ME2 is the single best-rated game in the 28-year history of Electronic Arts (validation for acquiring BioWare) and of course, we all know that EA simply doesn't do exclusivity. They just can't make enough money this way so perhaps such a move was inevitable.
You can also consider this to be pre-confirmation of Mass Effect 3 on PS3, as it's exceedingly unlikely BioWare will somehow magically revert to Xbox 360 exclusivity, even if it's only timed. No, ME appears to be a multiplatform series, now. Sony lost a few big exclusives at the start of this generation, too, and in general, third-party exclusivity really is a thing of the past. However, now that Microsoft has lost ME...they just have Gears and Halo, right? I mean, that's all that's left to compete against MGS4, GoWIII, GT5, LBP, Heavy Rain, Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, inFamous, Killzone.....? Well...all right.
