Today is EA's turn at Gamescon, and one of their big announcements is that MS2 is coming to the PS3. They say it should arrive about January 2011.

And we're not getting the first one? Sorry if I'm sounding like an ungrateful brat, but that's kinda BS. :I

Also, January 2011 lol

But posting a new thread is better :ohn:

It'll refrain from actual discussion of the game, and more focus on the annoucement :D
And yes, I also want ME1... but if it never comes, I guess I'll have to go the cheap route and give my PC a little boost :\

But it's still ME2, which means it should be part of the ME2 thread. Oh well, I guess whatever then. :)

Yeah, releasing the second game and not the first game is kind of crap. You guys are going to be getting half the experience you would get if you played both. Doesn't MS own the rights to the first game though? They were the publisher for it, and EA published the second. Maybe that's why they can't release ME1.

I have it for PC anyway but it's still crap that the first one isn't coming to PS3.

Great news for the Ps3 users out there, it never interested me though I downloaded the demo which was pretty spectacular but just never got around to buying the game.

Well... I just checked and my PC can run the first game if I upgrade my video card...
Gah! Maybe in September...

I can confirm this having been a member of one of the sony forums for years xD does happen on some xbox forums too.
Very funny stuff.

Hopefully all the DLC thus far will be included on the disc, considering it's Blu-ray! And yeay, no more disc swapping! I'll be getting this. :pi: My PS3 is on my HDTV anyway.

The rumour is that MS has publishing exclusivity over the first game, so it won't be coming to the PS3.

And kotaku now has a teaser trailer: http://kotaku.com/5614859/mass-effect-2-ps3-trailer-happy-now-sony-fans

I just realized something... if the first Mass Effect doesn't get released on the PS3, won't there be a sort of "Story recap" on the disc? Since it's blu-ray, it can hold more data. Maybe like an hour (or full length movie long) or w/e recap of the story. I know Xenosaga I did not get a EU release for example. So when the second one was released, there was a bonus disc deticated for explaining the story of the first.

It'll be good, but not good enough as carrying over your own descions.

Well that would be cool. I might actually have to finish Mass Effect on PC now. I keep forgetting about it :p

I got pretty bored with the 1st game, the second was awesomesauce, however. :)

Er, that was terrible. It was every single cutscene of the first with the gameplay edited out. :I

17-08-10, 16:47
Oh... :\

Well maybe just a recap. Something similar to Tomb Raider Underworld where there was a recap for TRI(TRA really) and TRL. It would cover the main parts of the story... I don't know.

Isn't this kind of rendered pointless by them not releasing ME1 on PS3? I know technically you can start with ME2, but that's like cutting the experience in half. Regardless, I'm interested in seeing what PS3 can do with the game. Less loading times, for one.

I've just expressed the same opinion about it in another forum, despite the fact I've enjoyed ME2 a lot more.

This exactly. PS3 players are missing out in a great game (ME1) and lots of story. Maybe they will surprise PS3 players and have both games bundled in 1 package?

Well Saints Row was a 360 exclusive and Saints Row 2 was released on PS3 and I had no problem catching on.

And in the first post it says ME3 instead of ME2, you might wanna fix that, people may get confused :)

I think the first one won't be given to us because the publisher was Microsoft so it's impossible for us to have it, it was EA for the second.

But to make things better they created a prequel as introduction of Mass Effect 2 (which helps a lot to understand better the storyline around Mass Effect) specifically for the Playstation 3. Smart move from Bioware. :)

They could get away with renaming it, like Tecmo did with Ninja Gaiden. So those Mass Effect: Genesis rumours could be true.

Some people said that it would be nicer to have Heavy Rain style cutscenes for the moments that would affect ME2's storyline. That would be very nice, since we all know how much Bioware bragged about the consequences that your actions have on ME2's story. xD

I'm still getting it, ME1 or not, I want it. n.n
