"The press release makes no mention of the PlayStation 3."

I wonder did anyone make any mention of the PS3 in early press releases for Bioshock?
crazy-eyez-killah  +   1942d ago
It would be nice but not too bothered either way myself..

PS3 has many great games coming.

EDIT: By the way, If I want to play it I will play the superior version on my gaming PC.. Not on butter hardware.

Bad new for ps3 owners
the game should be available to more people it will be awesome. Disappointment.

We all knew this.

You can't blame Sony boys for desiring so deeply the best RPG of this generation though.
Blademask  +   1942d ago
Guess I'll have to get the definitive exclusive pc version.
And play from my couch.
With my surround sound.
Hopefully I still wont have to upgrade my pc, like i havent had to since the start of this generation.

I do hope that they fix the laundry list of bugs for the 360 version though. Those loading hallways have to go.

That brings the grand total of 2009 360 exclusive games to: 2

edit @ disagrees.

My bad, its not Exclusive to the PC, its exclusive to the 360.

ME was overrated.
nycredude  +   1942d ago
Hmmm.
Is this game available on the PC? I only ask because, together with my Ps3 I also have a decent PC rig... If I get sick of all the Ps3 exclusives and feel the need, which I doubt will happen, to play yet another decent game then I'll just pick it up for my PC.

Just my 2 cents for all those inevitable "It's a shame PS3..." comments.

well atleast 360 has 1 or 2 good franchise left exclusive.
MS must have recognized the importance of ME to the public.

I still wouldn't rule out Timed exclusivity but it's going to be too late for that and porting unreal engine doesn't gives the best results.

Mass Effect was definitely underrated. Easily the best game of 2007. The story, gameplay, characters... everything was just awesome. A few times I just stopped at watched the sky on a few planets and it was incredible.
joydestroy  +   1942d ago
it said early 2010, not '09.

but booo at this! i was hoping to play it on my PS3 this go 'round instead of my 360. well, they def better get rid of that loading crap if they want my money this time! at least make loading happen less often.

what the hell does any of that video have to do with it being on the 360? Its the style of the game not the restrictions of the hardware that the video is complaining about.

EDIT: Funny vid tho! Elevator sequences!
rroded  +   1942d ago
got the first one 360
it was pretty good tho the glitches and load times sucked a lot of the joy out of it 9i get flashbacks every time i get on an elevator now)
might get the next one on pc tho ill prob get the drm/windows live free version...
Unless the 360 version is a lot better than the last one.

Cue the SDF! Now ME2 has gone from an awesome game that is now multi-platform because of EA to an over-rated 360 console exclusive developed by Bioware. Do Sony fanboys even have any shame?

Oh wait, now we'll all learn that they all have $3000 PC gaming rigs with surround sound and customized dual-shock controllers...yeah, yeah, yeah. Anything to avoid paying a measly $199 for a X360.

I'll say it one last time: MS has a deal with Bioware. How many Bioware games have ended up on a Sony console? When EA bought Bioware it didn't nullify any outstanding contracts they had prior to the merger.

Played Oblivion. Played Fallout 3. Played Lost Odyssey. Played Fable 2. Mass Effect is a notch above all of them.

Aquanox - "You can't blame Sony boys for desiring so deeply the best RPG of this generation though."
The best RPG this gen? Wow, I would classify that as a truly silly and sarcastic comment or, a misguided attempt at poking fun of Sony fans about a "decent" RPG, not a great one. Sorry, but even the likes of Oblivion blow Mass Effect out of the water in terms of RPG elements.
callahan09  +   1942d ago
OK, I'm not going to try to say that it's coming to PS3 or even that I think it's coming to PS3, BUT, I will argue semantics: This is not a confirmation that the game is not on PS3. This is a confirmation that it's on the 360 and the PC, with "no mention of the PS3." Failure to mention a platform is not the same thing as confirming that it won't be coming to that platform. Especially with Game Developer's Conference next week, why would they announce it coming to PS3 in a press release when they could do it at a major show? Again, the likelihood is slim, but this is not technically a confirmation that it won't be on PS3.
Aquanox  +   1942d ago
Bioware made Mass Effect 2 to be underrated due to lack of polish. All other aspects of the game from story, character development, sound and visuals were incredible.

If they keep up with this quality standard and take their time to polish it more, I'm sure you'll have a 9.3-10 scores galore all over the place, and there's no reason to think otherwise. They already have experience with the software and hardware and are not rushing the game to hit xMas.

Morgan, 2010.
didn't know that...

why is everyone getting excited again? A 360 multiplat is staying multiplat on the PC? and its coming out in 2010.. im lost?

"Bioware made Mass Effect 2 to be underrated due to lack of polish. All other aspects of the game from story, character development, sound and visuals were incredible."

lol.. it had lack of polish because the unreal engine & the 360 couldn't stream load it to save its life. Just like Gears 2 wasn't bigger, badder or more badass. Expect the same lumbering stumble to the 1.5 version. But hey, we gotta wait till 2010 to see anyway.

Blur studios is currently working on the Mass Effect 2 trailer and the Fable3 trailer btw. So the first thing we are going to see is going to be pre-rendered.

Overrated? Because it wasn't on the PS3 right? Get outta here..
It's my favorite RPG of this generation.. by far.

@morganfell - Thanks for reassuring everyone here. Now, go have your five(5) minutes of giggling..

@green - Wasn't there an article on here before saying that there may be a new ME DLC to come out this year? o.O

I love it when people say ME is "overrated" and so on, when the game won like 50 awards. ME was severely underrated, and is by far my favorite RPG of this generation, and one of my top games of this generation, if not one of my favorite games ever.

while Im sure that this is an excellent game to many, I have both the 360 and later PC version and didn't finish either one. As a matter of fact I played about two levels of the PC version and realized that even without the glitchfest the 360 provided this game is actually REALLY DAMN BORING.

I sure do hope you ps3 fanatics buy it for the pc that most of you say is to expensive to game on....ya imo about 75% of you guys that are spouting off your gonna buy it on the pc know you don't have a gaming pc.

Regardless

Like I said I really would like to see this games sales on the pc spike if not only so that stupid "pc gaming is dying" myth would go away...So if your runnin your mouth about buying the superior version to piss off 360 fans. I won't hold it against you just as long as you actually buy a gaming pc down the road.
JokesOnYou  +   1942d ago
well,
It looks like its unlikely that it will come to ps3 at least not at the same time, but really I wouldn't care if it did....I already know its coming to 360 so I'll be playing ME2 on the same platform I played the original on. Mass Effect is hands down the best RPG I've played this gen, hell is it really a RPG? I'm sure the few technical issues will be ironed out but hell I'd take ME2 with the same technical issues over many other RPG's with no framerate hiccups, seriously this game is fcking good....hell I advise ps3 owners to actually put their money where their mouth is this time and really get the PC version if they don't own or want the 360 version. ME is highly UNderated and is the type of experience NO gamer should miss.

They make no mention of the PS3. That doesn't mean it's not coming to the PS3. So I would not say this is confirmed.
anh_duong  +   1942d ago
for all the disagreers i just don't want you to get the impression that i am spoiling your party on me2 being exclusive. just check my xbox gamer profile (anhduong) you will see i have 29 xbox 360 games and one of them includes me. i got no gamer points on them because i am using a new profile. i.e. i have no reason to hate the xbox.

anyway, my point is mass effect 2 is 100000% coming out on the ps3. it will be out around 9 months to a year after the xbox version but it is coming nontheless. i used to work at EA a long time ago and my source says it is a timed exclusive.

as a further give away the EA press release never mentioned that the game was an xbox eclusive and nor did it mention that the game wasn't coming to the ps3 - it only mentions what console the game was going to appear on but no comment on whether it would appear on the ps3. hence every EA press comment going forward will be that the game will appear on the xbox 360 but no denial that it won't appear on the ps3.

Stubacca  +   1942d ago
Disappointed...
I kinda wanted to play ME2 on the PS3. I no longer have a 360. ME was a good game but I refuse to put it in the ultimate RPG category!

Is it really that important anyway? It's not out for another year! There are so many cracking games on the PS3, both right now and over the next 12 months, so who really cares?

If it turns out to be THAT good, I'll grudgingly get it for PC. I'm just disappointed that EA haven't tried to widen the availability of the game to those of us with superior tastes in games consoles.

@ No Way:

I enjoyed Mass Effect as much as the next guy, but I'll never understand statements like yours. You readily acknowledge the game's 50+ awards that various publications gave it, the game sits at over 90% on MetaCritic (so it got great reviews), and it sold millions. . . How exactly can any of that translate to "underrated"?

"Realistically, PS3 owners wouldn’t get their copy of the game until 2012. By that time BioWare would be starting (or finishing) alpha code for the third game. Would it really be sensible to port over a game that old to a system that’s already selling less third-party software outside of Japan, than the 360? "

If anything the game would be underrated, not overrated.

@I_am_rushin - You could say the same about Kojima, and any, and every, game company that makes a game exclusive. That is, of course, they are not a first party developer.

IdleLeeSiuLung  +   1941d ago
The way EA revealed this means that ME2 will most likely be released on PS3 as well, in a year when it likely doesn't matter more to MS or the fanboys. It will eventually get there and unless a they repeat the Orange Box debacle (crappy port), the PS3 version is the definitve version to get.

... was quite honestly bad. Worse than FO3 and definitely worse than ME. Sorry, but it's the truth. DEMON'S SOULS, on the other hand... that's an excellent ARPG on the PS3, but I digress.

As for ME, my biggest complaints with that game were:

1) slow framerate (price of the graphics)
2) repetitive grinds (but it's an RPG so I shouldn't complain)
3) ridiculous loading screens

I was hoping a PS3 version would alleviate at least #1 and #3, but oh well. I hope that Bioware will at least implement some sort of HDD install option so that those elevator scenes can be cut down or eliminated.

I mean, seriously... going ONE FLOOR up within the Normandy takes nearly 20 seconds!! And this is supposed to be the future where people are traveling faster than the speed of light with the discovery of the "Mass Effect"??

i dont really see where or when anyone who owns a ps3 hates on pc gaming, pc gaming and console gaming garner to totally different crowds. i, personally, like both, for different reasons.

you can get a gaming rig that can play pretty much anything now for under a grand, and if you build it yourself, itll cost you like 500 bucks, parts are so cheap now.

i stand fast by the belief that ps3+pc is definitely the way to go, because the pc version is usually vastly superior to the 360 version, and in terms of shooters kb+mouse eat the 360 controller for breakfast. if it comes out on 360, it is probably coming out on one of the two other platforms. if its a big title on ps3, ie kz2, its staying on ps3. even computers that people buy for every day usage can run most games at decent settings, and it takes like 100 bucks to upgrade it to the point where it will run the game on par with consoles.

darkride66  +   1942d ago
As someone mentioned earlier...
When they released Bioshock they didn't say it was coming out for the PS3 either. Simply not mentioning a PS3 version doesn't mean that one isn't being worked on and given EA's love of money I don't feel that they would just sit on such a hot IP and not port it over to take advantage of another 20 million potential customers.
Also, Bioware hired all those PS3 programmers for a reason. It might be for Dragon Age or the new KOTOR but we will see Bioware games on the PS3. That's a given.
SuperM  +   1942d ago
Yea its to early to tell. Who knows, sony might want them to hold of the announcement until gdc or e3, just to give a little stab in the back to MS like they did last year with FF. Or it might be as simple as ME2 being timed exclusive to 360 in which case EA is likely to announce ME1 for release on PS3 this fall and ME2 will follow a year later.

Regardless ME2 is not hitting this year so MS still desperately needs some more games for this year. And ive heard rumors that MS dont have a keynote at GDC. If they dont announce something soon then its starting to get a little late for announcing games that will come out this year. Whatever games they announce at e3 is likely to be either casual games or games that will release next year. And since MS have said they try cater more towards casual games this year i have a bad feeling we arent gonna see much more core games announced for this year and just some casual games instead.

chaosatom  +   1942d ago
I think the problem is with Unreal engine.
They won't be able to do a quality port, and Microsoft must be pretty involed with ME.

But still I think MS recognized that ME going mulitplatform would be a huge loss for them.
solidjun5  +   1942d ago
yea, it could be a huge loss for them, but...
...EA needs money since they took a loss. If they were UP, then I can understand this business venture. That's why I'm so perpexled by SQUAREENIX. In the way, I think they could've done a way to make the UE engine work on the PS3. It was worked before in other games. Well in the end, it doesn't really matter. It's a good game(I played it last year) and I hope they fix some of the freezes and glitches from the first one.

Someone mentioned that they are going to carry the save file from the first one. If that's the case, then it makes sense not to port it, unless they were going to come out with the first one on the PS3. But then again, is the save carrying over portion that important? Anyway, there are tons of games coming out for both systems, and that's what matters.

Jason you make this seem like a war.
Are you that big of a fanboy homie? Look I just wanted to understand the reasoning behind it, that's all, okay? However, I took certain variables into the argument try to further under the reasoning. For example, EA is a third party company. That's a variable. EA didn't do so hot the last fiscal quater. That's another variable. I'm merely trying to undestand it and not trying to perpetuate your life-long fight against people who preference in console is different than yours. Look, I'm sure you're going to get the game and you're going to enjoy it. Fine, I'm happy for you. I liked the first one and I think you're going to have a dandy of a game. Everyone is going to enjoy something on whatever system they play on. That's all that matters.

solidjun5  +   1942d ago
Okay, MS was funding them.
MS kinda have their own system. EA...well they make money off other systems. So, while it could very well stay exclusive, based on the company motto "Put the game on every system viable", it's possible it could be multi-platform.

@solidjun5
Microsoft only funded Jade empire, because they published it. KOTOR was published and funded by Lucasart. Get your facts straight.
solidjun5  +   1941d ago
oh my bad.
Well anyway, EA is still the largest (or second largest) publisher (I forget) and since they are 3rd party and they (EA) love to put games on every console this side of the sun, I can see Mass Effect going multiplatform, but I won't hold my breath. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, it doesn't happen. Life goes on.
kevnb  +   1942d ago
oh well
the pc version is the one I want anyhow.

Edit: how can you disagree with me when I say I want the pc version? Are you saying I don't want the pc version?

I loved the first on 360. It's a shame that PS3 owners aren't (apparently) getting to experience the second. However, it does make sense a bit, as it is a continuing story. In fact, if they were going to put ME2 on PS3, they almost would have to port the first one as well just so new players aren't jumping into a universe in which they know nothing about. There's just way too much politics and story in the game to play this sequel without hitting up the original.
PirateThom  +   1942d ago
2010?

Unless Alan Wake releases this year, my 360 is going to see no use what so ever.
divideby0  +   1942d ago
That is the reason I bought Fallout for the 360.
I wasted $$ on L4D and noone is playing that now.

i hope you say the same thing
when imsomniac announces ps3 exclusive titles
callahan09  +   1942d ago
Well, the intellectual property rights to every single game that Insomniac makes are owned by Sony, so you can't really expect Insomniac to make Ratchet & Clank or Resistance multiplatform. The Mass Effect rights are not owned by Microsoft, so the developers and publishers are allowed to put it wherever they want. It's not quite the same as with Insomniac's games.
no-spin  +   1942d ago
thx callahan
is not as if im asking for Halo or Mario to go multi, Mass Effect is an IP owned by bioware and could easily go to the PS3. Insomniac cares about making good games with Sony IP's, so your post fails

Edit @squidyj

Thx for the info

I think a large part of it is continuity, in order to provide the same ME2 experience on PS3 as players have on PC and X360, they would have to first release ME on PS3. This hasn't happened yet, and I'm not saying it won't, I'm just saying if it does, it will be a while.
theEnemy  +   1942d ago
IF
they are porting it to the PS3, they would have ported Mass Effect 1 first.

So hoping for a ME2 for the PS3 is pushing it.

Mass Effect is a nice game and is very welcome to the PS3 anytime.
Rhezin  +   1942d ago
kind of an awesome game
played the first, thought the graphics would be better, same with mission variety. Side missions always took place on similar-looking planet throughout the whole game. Storyline was cool though, be interesting to see what happens in the second iteration.
bobdog626  +   1942d ago
Wish PS3 could have got this one
It's a Shame but you guy's still have God of War so don't feel to bad.I wish that one game could be ported to the 360.What a Shame.

donnie-2105  +   1942d ago
thank god for that another poor ps3 multi platform would drive me insane.also since the first was on 360 it would be difficult to put a sequel on the ps3 without releasing the 1st game.before ps3 fans say its on pc as well,the discussions on here are about console only exclusives so me2 counts.Lets face it if you had a high end £1000 pc why on earth would you be gaming on a ps3 anyway when it struggles to match even the 360 graphically with 90% of games released.
JHUX  +   1942d ago
Well I have a high end PC, and a ps3. Why would I have a ps3 you ask? Well idk, maybe because SONY exclusives don't get released on PC. Then for multiplats I got re5, and then on my PC i have L4D on steam. My PC stays loaded with fps/rts/rpgs...etc.. Console games that either don't come out for PC, or are best to play on the couch with a controller go to my ps3.

You can also build a very good gaming rig for little cost.
no-spin  +   1942d ago
@ JHUX
can you be more specific about the cost?
i keep reading that,but no details and im getting interested in owning a gaming PC

PM if you want, thx

I just recently pieced together a cheap budget gamer amd build for my brother and the sub total was about $495 and about $15 dollars for shipping. most good pc parts be got on newegg for free shipping.

it was something along the lines of...

x2 5600 2.9ghz cpu
ATi HD 4850
4gb DDR 2 800mhz Ram
Triple 120mm mid-tower Rosewill Case
600 watt OCZ stealthstream Power supply.
Gigabyte MA770 Full atx motherboard Am2/AM2+ for a possible quad core phenom II upgrade.
Seagate Barracuda 250gb Hard Drive.

this setup is almost identical to my gaming pc (though im rolling on 3 hard drives over 1.3TB total...I've got the less powerful hd3870 and still play all my games on high. I've read recently that the hd4870's should be priced around $149 and will probably upgrade just so I can play at insane resolutions on my new 40" hdtv. I have a crossfire board should I get addicted to hdtv gaming and want more GPU power.

@donnie are u abnormal
PS3 exclusives eat away all x360 games

X360 doesnt have the horsepower to run next gen games at 1080p native

KZ2
http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Gears 2
http://www.youtube.com/watc...

All x360 games look total subpar vs KZ2

many multiplat games look and run better on PS3 too

Tomb raider --720p on PS3 and 576p on X360
alone in the dark -720p on PS3 and 600p on X360

devs usually port and rush ps3 games and u have bad ports sometimes
but nowadays many ports look and run better on PS3

ofcourse KZ2 looks better than any game on x360 by miles
also PS3 is teh only console capable of running games at 1080p native at 60 fps -eg Wipeout HD, MLB 09 etc
Major_Tom  +   1942d ago
How is this a confirmation?
It doesn't say anything about it being exclusive anywhere. It would be great official confirmation if they came out publicly and denied a PS3 version instead of saying nothing.

Captain Obvious  +   1942d ago
I agree. They should have quoted the entire press release but instead they decided to omit any bit where it mentioned formats to be released on, therefore it's hardly concrete proof of anything.

However, there really is little point in releasing this game on the PS3 without the first one so I think they'd have to announce that first before they announce the sequel or to be fair what is more likely is that it's going to just stay exclusive. This article however is not 'confirmation' of either.
JHUX  +   1942d ago
Unless you see the 1st ME pop up on the ps3, then you won't be seeing the 2nd one. ME2 is going to be using your saves to continue the story, so it wouldn't make much sense to release just the 2nd one on ps3. Obviously if you played the game, then your going to want to get it on the 360 again since that's where your saved games are.

exactly
the ps3 version HASNT been denied

EA has to make a PS3 version if it wants to survive

there will be a ps3 version. wait till gdc
SpartanGR  +   1942d ago
Played the first one on my pc and it was WAAAAAAY better experience over the floppy version of 360s. thats why i'm having a very powerfull pc (GTX285 x3) for games like MET FALLOUT, WItcher and so on...

A good PC and a PS3 is the perfect combination in my opinion.

That's bleedin' overkill man, not to mention that the third 285 doesn't net you much. What resolution are you running at?
evrfighter  +   1942d ago
I'd hope it's a really insane resolution otherwise it's like having a 500+hp supra that tops out at 100mph...
GoldenBoy  +   1942d ago
Great news but could the title add a little more flame to its bait?
I am a Sony Fan but I have ME on 360 and loved it and even if ME2 was multiplat I would buy it on the 360 because of that.

Anyone notice that the title does not represent what the article states. The articles only confirms that ME2 is coming to 360 and PC. It does not say that ME2 is not coming to PS3. Truth be told I doubt it makes it to PS3 but could we please have more accurate titles such as:

ME2 Confirmed for 360, PC

P.S. - As a Sony Fan I would really love to see ME and ME2 ported to the PS3 so more people can play them.

morganfell  +   1942d ago
n to the b, where did I say I want it? You are just making things up. I said it will likely come to the PS3. No where did I say I wanted it.

Would I consider getting it on the PS3? I own the 360 version and the PC version of the first one. If they get rid of that ridiculous Mako, do something about those horrid textures, actually let us explore the galaxy instead of one planet in a system that is barren as hell and has one building within the 1 kilometer space to explore, and they remove the damn elevator screens while fixing your dirt ignorant AI buddies. Then and only then will I consider getting the game.

I would rather spend my time in The Witcher. 70 hours is the average on the first play through with 5 distinct endings. And a game where choices actually matter. Or as I stated elsewhere I will drop in Valkyria Chronicles. Or by the time ME2 launches, Versus. This is all machts nichts as the game will likely do a Bioshock.

I know alot of 360 owners loved this game, i mean REALLY loved this game so it is disappointing that it isn't making its way onto the PS3.

But when i rented mass effect i couldn't get into it, so i'm personally not that bothered. I'll rent mass effect 2, who knows - i may get hooked this time?
