BioWare: Mass Effect 3 PS3 A "Natural Assumption"
Dragon Age is multiplatform. Mass Effect 2 has been announced for PlayStation 3. EA just doesn't do exclusivity. So...wouldn't it stand to reason that Mass Effect 3 will also come to the PS3?
Well, BioWare won't confirm anything at this point, but they admit that such reasoning is probably sound. When studio CEO Dr. Ray Muzyka was asked at GamesCom if Mass Effect 3 would be Sony-bound, he replied that it's a "good guess." However, he made it clear that although it's a "natural assumption," they haven't announced any details on the game, nor have they talked about intended platforms. Still, it seems inevitable, as Muzyka mentioned EA's multiplatform business philosophy and noted that BioWare planned to embrace that same "give it to the biggest audience possible" idea.
"EA is a company that wants to support different platforms, reach different audiences; we're part of EA and we want to make sure we can embrace that as well. I think we're trying to do that with all of our products, whether it's Dragon Age or Mass Effect."
As for the original Mass Effect, that won't be headed to PS3s any time soon. Some say this is a serious problem, as the sequel is a direct continuance of the storyline in the first title, so as a result, what's the point of only getting ME2...? That's an argument that will have to be settled amongst the RPG aficionados; in the meantime, we'll wait patiently for an official Mass Effect 3 announcement.
