Mass Effect 3 - The War For Omega Begins


Disturbing reports from the Citadel suggest that something big is about to go down. If our Intel is accurate, Aria is on the move. This was anticipated, as we did not expect her to sit idly by while Cerberus ran roughshod over Omega. With her biotic capabilities and well-documented mean streak, what happens next won’t be pretty. (Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

FFvs13 & dawnguard.

Yeah so what? Couple people bitching on gaming sites.Big deal.I'm talking actual death threats and talks of boycotts on the forums.It was bad when ME2 was inbound to PS3.Worse when ME3 was coming, but now it's just sad lol.

Same with everything else as well.Star ocean will never come to PS3, Dead island will always be exclusive, lost & damned, BOGT, bioshock, ninja gaiden etc etc etc.

Years and years of crying by the 360 fanboys.So pathetic lol.Oh my god..when Bungie went multi i thought there would be mass suicides by the hate on their forums LOL

@TCG_Returns -
You're just delusional, lol. Sony 'fanboys' have done death threats, too.
I've also heard of PS3 fanboys boutta commit suicide cause a game went multi.

That is sad. Neither 'side' are better than each other.

ME Blog:

"Mass Effect 3: Omega (Single-player DLC) – Coming November 27th to PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 (November 28th to PS3 in Europe)."

Meh weeks exclusitivity? Has this what its come to for MS? Do they really think getting a few weeks of exclusive DLC is going to help sell consoles? I don't think so and it makes you wonder how much MS paid for this..
MikeMyers  +   1219d ago
Upset? What an odd thing to say since I still have the Xbox 360 Collectors Edition for the first Mass Effect and my Xbox Live Gamertag used to be the N7 avatar that came with the package.

I was clarifying the topic title since if you read the details within it it says "While it may be Xbox 360-exclusive on launch, PS3 and PC gamers will no doubt be able to download it a few weeks after it’s available."

So please keep your PS3 or 360 fanboy comments to yourself. That's not why I corrected the title.

I hate it too, but what lesson exactly, are we talking about?. COD is alot more popular on 360 than PS3, because nobody wants to play yester-years news, and I actually think MS is raking in alot of money on this.

I may get this after I beat Halo 4 on Legendary. Or if they release it before I buy Forza Horizon. However, I will buy & it will be my 1st dlc purchase for ME3.

I think it may have a chance to be great, like the Lair Of The Shadow Broker. Of course it must be great, Shadow Broker dlc was fantastic.
MasterD919  +   1220d ago
Wow, I'm surprised that Bioware is putting this out for 1200 points, biggest DLC or not.

I will wait for it to go on sale...I haven't been impressed with ME3's DLC yet (aside from the free multiplayer stuff).

Your Xbox live fees at work.
Am I the only one seeing MS exclusives (Halo,Forza and Gears) are not being made by the developers that made them great. Is this gonna be Microsoft's new trend. Milking old IPs with new developers. The only new IPs coming out are arcade or Kinect games. So is this why they have timed DLC?

well they seem happy whit this, why no more , i say give them more this are some rich gamers ms hook up whit

All the main devs working on nextbox games. They allow the smaller teams to use the assets they already have. In the end timed exclusives work.

2-3 million more sales equals 20-35 million dollars in royalties for MS and that doesnt include DLC royalties!

MS still has more games than sony. I bet the average gamer rather play forza and halo over lbpk and psasbr!

I thought mass effect dlc was coming on the same date?
Gridloc  +   1219d ago
You forgot Sony is supporting 3-4 pieces of hardware still. MS has more games than Sony (most of which are Kinect and arcade games) that are more for the casual market. If your comment on that the main developers are working on next gen turns out true, then it looks to me like MS will give up support for the 360 within a year of the next Xbox.
THE_MACGREGOR  +   1219d ago
well frankly frankie ( frank o conner ) dude has been down with halo since 2 so that guy knows the franchise , im sorry if your butt hurts by bungie ditching moneysoft. Forza hasnt changed studios its still Turn10 and who gives a crap about gears ! after 2 that S*it got weak.

I may have to dust of ME3 and see where this is going.

*looks at comments*

Mods are working overtime in here, then again it is a 360 times exclusive article. Yup, no heavy bias on this site.
Omnislash  +   1220d ago
Wow... Soooooo much trolling!! Personally I dont care as long as its timed DLC, I dont plan on playing Mass Effect until the 3 games come out on PS3 so by then this DLC should be out on PS3 by now. I think that MS losing that exclusive was a big hit for them especially since I really dont have a good reason to buy a 360 now... Not that I ever did.
Straightupbeastly  +   1220d ago
Xbox is a must own console they get the best stuff or get it first. No point in owning a ps3
trouble_bubble  +   1219d ago
First? You know the PS Store updates a day before the XBLA does, right lol? Multiplats like this week's Walking Dead episode and Retro City Rampage were out Tuesday on PSN, Wednesday on XBLA. That and this article's already been proven false by BioWare's own press release. Straightupfail.
jetlian  +   1219d ago
hes talking about games getting released years later on psn if ever. ME1 is 5 years later, psn hasnt gotten torchlight, bastion, gaurdian heroes and those 3 came out last year.

took 2 years to get castle crashers and braid.A year or so for limbo. right now dust and mark of the ninja may never see the light on psn same with deadlight
trouble_bubble  +   1219d ago
What's the point though? That logic goes both ways, doesn't by default make one console "must have" and the other "must not". Joe Danger didn't come out on 360 til like a year later. Peace Walker was a PSP exclusive for a year. Took many months for Kung Fu Live/ Kung Fu Impact to get on Live as well.

What's the game/set/match I'm missing? Yes 360 has Deadlight, Mark of the Ninja, Trials, Shadow Complex. But PS3 also has Journey, WipEout, Dead Nation, Unfinished Swan -next tuesday-. 360 has Sine Mora, PS3 has Soldner X-2. 360 has Minecraft with an 83% meta avg, PS3 has Dyad with an 83% avg.

Yes ME1 is 5 years later, but MGS4 is still exclusive 5 years later. Huge hole still looms there on the 360 between the MGS HD set and next year's MG Rising and Ground Zeroes. Huge hole, and there's no digital comic to fill in the gap, which 360 also got on the Marketplace for ME1, many months later.

Point is, best to call content firsts a draw and move on. Especially for an article that got it wrong in the 1st place.
jetlian  +   1219d ago
Beastly point was xbox tends to get games/content earlier than ps3 and thats a fact nobody was talking about true exclusives.

MS has been known and slammed for doing timed exclusives That all he was saying. You come in talking about 1 day timed exclusives. Fact is on 360 vs ps3 MS tends to get games first and the better ones at that.

Gridlock: I was comparing ps3 and 360 dont care what vita,psp, or ps2 are doing. They aren't going against 360. Yea kinect and arcade games. MS aslso the only one this year with AAA games.

I think mark of the ninja, dust, deadlight, alan wake,trials evo, minecraft more than just for the casual.

Name 1 AAA ps3 game this year on the level of witcher 2 , forza, and halo.
ceballos77mx  +   1219d ago
Be carefully and don't invest much on a 360, remember what MS did with the 1st Xbox as soon as the 360 came out they dropped it like dead weight.
P_Bomb  +   1216d ago

Define "level"?

MLB 12 The Show has a meta' avg of 87
Forza Horizons has a meta' avg of 86

Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings sold 500,000
Twisted Metal sold 540,000

To your other point, what constitutes a "better game" as far as downloadables?

XBLA summer game 'Deadlight' has a meta' avg of 68/100. Papo and Yo from the same window got a 72/100 on PSN. Alan Wake: American Nightmare has a 76/100 avg. Closure got an 81/100. XBLA games like Sine Mora and Dust have 83/100 averages, but so do Dyad and Sound Shapes on the PSN side. There's no great divide, quality avg is pretty similar.

The interview this article got it's information from mentioned nothing about timed exclusives. Gamble plainly said it releases Nov. 27, true he didn't specify all platforms, but didn't say anything about it being released nov. 27 "on xbox". They prob got it mixed up when later in the interview they were talking about Trilogy pack coming out later for PS3, or it's just a troll article.

Article's posting fables, not facts. Don't buy into it. Game releases SAME DAY for 360/PS3/PC, as per BIOWARE and pretty much every other site reporting on the pack.

Way to go gaming journalism, why bother with things like sources, just keep making up $#^& for hits and fuel the fires. Worst gen' for misinformation.

Microsoft really messed up, if Bioware was up for sale, they should've bought instead of EA. Anyways its cool more people can enjoy this series.
