    Mass Effect 2 to Appear on PlayStation 3

    PlayStation 3 RPGamers were shafted previously by this year's release of Mass Effect 2. Thankfully, BioWare is out to gain some love, as it's porting this 2010 hit to the PlayStation 3.

    Story.

    Thank you bioware for saving me some money! Now, I don't have to buy yet another 360 to replace the one that got the RROD on me in the middle of my infinate undiscovery play session. . . . Oh, the flashbacks. I think I need therapy.

    MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!! I knew it would happen!

    That said.... What about the first one? It would be unfortunate to not have all of the decision making carry over, wonder how they will handle that. Probably in the same way they would if you just started up a new ME game. Seems odd though that they would not find a way to release the first one all things considered. I see this means multi-plat ME3. Sweeeet.

    I'm happy PS3 only owners get to experience the ME2 goodness. I'm all for ME3 as a multi-platform title as that means more people get to play it. I'm very excited/upset about this announcement. Now I have to buy it on the PS3 to get the additional goodness. Still, gaming just reserved a win today.

    I have strong opinions. Slanted they may be. Uninformed they are not.

    More people getting to experience one of the greatest games of the past decade or so? Awesome

    The reactions from some of the 360 fantards are hilarious. I'm of the opinion that exclusivity is largely redundant and the "console wars" are really really (really) stupid.

    Shouldn't we be discussing the games themselves, not the bunch of circuts, wires and plastic via which they are played?

    I'm actually shocked there isn't more fanboy rage over this. The net did not explode

    Without the first, this move is useless.
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    I don't know about useless, but it IS a bit confusing.

    Apparently they will be including something that helps get the story of the first over. Beats me what it is though (long interactive cutscene, like a briefing maybe?).

    Either way, good news for PS3 owners.

    The PlayStation 3 edition is said to include the full game and hours of additional content.
    If you refer to this quote, I think they mean downloadable content will be included in the PS3 version.

    Awesome! The PS3 will get the full game unlike the hacked up 360 one! YEEES!

    Useless? No way. I believe Mass Effect 2 sold more than the first, so obviously there's people who played and probably loved it without playing the first one at all. Plus Bioware said they'll get the story of the first one in there somehow. I was hoping they'd somehow recreate the major missions from ME1 in the improved ME2 engine though. ME1 is such a technical mess.

    Here was where I got that from. Unclear what they're actually doing though, will have to wait for the announcement. Didn't get any of the ME2 DLC myself (other than the 'free' stuff at launch) but imagine it'll go part of the way to making it more desireable for the PS3.

    Hrm. Without being able to connect up with the first game, the best feature of ME2 is already missing. That's kind of why I assumed rumors like this were false.

    Hopefully they come up with a fair substitute - ain't fair for PS3 fans to get shafted where the 360 and PC fans didn't.

    Still, good news for PS3 fans.

    But if other people get to play the game it's not as much fun :-P

    Duh. The less the better. If everyone gets to play the same game, what will we brag about. Freaking conformists.
