Mass Effect rumored for the PC

An article scan from the latest PC Gamer UK reveals that BioWare's Mass Effect could be heading to the PC. This is most welcome news for Windows gamers, but hardly surprising when you consider the Canadian developer's previous two Xbox titles followed the same path. Knights of the Old Republic started out as an Xbox exclusive, and its PC conversion followed four months later. Also, a special edition PC port of Jade Empire was announced at E3 and will ship in January.

Mass Effect doesn't arrive on the Xbox 360 until Q2, so we probably wouldn't see the rumored PC release until late next year. (Jade Empire, Mass Effect, PC, Xbox 360)

If this is true....
Its yet further proof that if you have a decent computer you already have a 360.

i already know about this rumor, but if true, i think buying a 360 would be a cheaper route to take, than to fully upgrade my PC.

Some poeple seem to forget that Microsoft also care about PC gaming, and are going to do what they can to get good games on it. But most people would prefer to get a cheaper 360 than pay so much upgrading their PC.

Wouldn't suprise me
Just like KOTOR it wouldn't suprise me if this came on the PC, but you would need a BEAST of a PC in order to run this game to the same graphical detail and framerate as the xbox 360 version. The 360 route is the best route to take.

Honestly I say bring it on. I like having the choice between getting a game for the PC or the 360. There are games I want to buy like Supreme Commander that no console will get. I have a high end PC anyways. Also, for those thinking that this hurts the 360 they are wrong. Microsoft makes money anyways hence why they are pushing live anywhere. This is also why Sony is trying to push the Idea that the PS3 is a computer since they know if the PC and the 360 have and will have a very strong marriage relationship.

The question is, how many people will wait the four or more months it would take for a pc version to come out? It was one thing for a game like Oblivion where the pc version was released on the same date, and with mods was superior imo. But the 360 version will be out well before the pc version, so this might be different.

agreed....
release dates on this kind of thing really do make a difference. After that it comes down to your preferences for playing games. Do you prefer to be on the couch or in front of your pc? Me...I take the couch. I sit in front of a computer all day..don't want to when I come home as well.

I will, my I prefer it on PC.
Way I see it, certain games are better on PCs like FPS. But consoles normally dominate in all other gernes.

I'll wait, but I'll start playing it when my friend get its on his Xbox360. =D

I do want UT2007 for PS3 though, It might actually outperform my PC... Who knows!?
Solidus  +   2868d ago
My argument only makes sense if you already have a decent rig
Which a lot of people do. Especially if your computer is also used for work or your a pc gamer in general. Im very happy about the news since I can have a ps3 a wii and my comp and pretty much have a 360.

Some of the MGS games do get ported to the PC. But the games are designed around the xbox 360 and it takes a while for the port to be made. Like Halo 2 coming over 2 years after the xbox 1 version.
General  +   2868d ago
Wrong.
This rumor aint true, Its 360 exclusive.

I highly dough microsoft will sue microsoft for this. If this comes to the PC this is a win win situation for microsoft. they need as many games as they can get for games for windows and vista.
Dlacy13g  +   2868d ago
9.1 .....????
Ummm...no offense bladesstar but what the heck are you talking about?

You said..."I highly dough microsoft will sue microsoft for this. "

Umm.....I guess I will agree with you. I highly doubt Microsoft would sue Microsoft over this either. LOL

I will agree with you on the win, win situation if it comes to a windows platform as well though.

Dlacy13g I think you understood why I meant. Lots of people find it strange when xbox 360 games hit the PC, but this shouldn't be a surprice, since it benefits microsoft regardless.
