PS3 Mass Effect 2 - EA offers 'no comment'

CVG: If EA is planning to release a PS3 version of Mass Effect 2, it's keeping schtum.

CVG checked in with the publisher this afternoon to ask if it was keen on releasing a PS3 version of the game, and all we got was a short, sharp: "No comment on that one." Delivered in a polite manner, we may add.

After than GTA IV DLC coming to the PC and PS3.

It's all going to depend what type of contract Microsoft has for the game...

if it's console exclusive... or time exclusive.

Guess we have to wait and see.

SullyDrake2847d ago

I'd still pick it up on PS3. It's such a fantastic franchise.

Aquanox2847d ago

I understand your anxiety for this game. ME2 is a hell of a title.

Megaton2847d ago (Edited 2847d ago )

After the GTAIV DLC, I don't trust anything but 1st party exclusivity. Out of everything 3rd party out there, I thought that would NEVER leave the 360. Microsoft mince words constantly, but that's the only time I remember them saying it was 100% impossible for the PS3 to get something they had.

I think it's only a matter of time before Mass Effect hits the PS3. Possibly in some bundle that comes with 1 and 2. Both on one BR would be pretty sweet.

DaTruth2847d ago

This is a bit much. We don't need twelve articles a day on this. Even if it I didn't care about this game coming to PS3, I would want it to just to stop the constant barrage of "Mass Effect on PS3???" articles.

JsonHenry2847d ago

I hope it does so that even more people will get to enjoy this great game.

Dacapn2847d ago

I really hope it comes.

One disc. All three games with seamless transitions, and the most refined version of the combat and graphics available upon release.

This is seriously the only game that warrants a 360 purchase for me. If this game doesn't come to PS3, I will be buying a 360 for it...unless they release it on Mac :D

raztad2847d ago

They can take all the time they want. I'm not getting it day one or day two. I havent finished ME on PC yet. MAG is having all my downtime and money is on HR/GoW3.

Of course, If anything I hope there is a bundle ME1&2 for $60, otherwise Steam is the way to go.

kws10652847d ago

It's kinda clear to see this will come at some point.

It's Blu-ray clear.

Sitdown2847d ago

does not carry the "only on xbox 360" tag, like the original did, I definitely expect it to hit the ps3.

facelike2847d ago

This sounds like time exclusive. It looks like Microsoft demands that they must keep quiet about any other versions of a game until a certain date when they can announce it. Looking at this reaction and Rockstar's reaction right before they announced the GTA IV content on PC and PS3, its like they want to say, but cant.

If the developers do not like these deals, then why do they insist on doing them. It's different if Microsoft or Sony was publishing the game, but thats not in this case here.

Fanb0y2847d ago

It most definitely will happen. Microsoft can't hold onto an exclusive for sh*t. Plus, Mass Effect is owned by EA.

Their way is to get all the money they can out of the game through a timed exclusivity deal, then just let it go. Cheaper that way.

But GODDAM IT they spent 50 million on the GTA DLC?! That could've gone into producing a decent first-party exclusive.

MiloGarret2847d ago

I'm currently on my second playthrough (on 360) but I'd buy it for the ps3 just to be able to play without the humming of my 360 + the fear that it might choke...

Sarcasm2847d ago

I wouldn't be able to wait if it does. I already got my ME2 fix and cant wait for ME3 to transfer my story over. Poor Tali and Jack got killed.

himdeel2847d ago

...and hope that EA chooses to strike while the proverbial iron is hot. I'm all for good games but would like them to leverage the excitement and interest of the game for PS3 fans with the opportunity for us to purchase ME1&2 this year.

I'm just finishing Bioshock now and while I thoroughly enjoy the story now that I've gotten through most of the game I couldn't see myself ever buying it. If I didn't borrow it I probably would've never played it. Year old ports smash any sales projections to steaming piles of meh.

DaTruth2847d ago

I don't care about this! Just give me Splinter Cell Conviction and I'm good for 360 games I want to play on PS3!

Solidus187-SCMilk2847d ago

I got ME2 on 360 and one of the first things I noticed it it doesnt say
"only on xbox 360 and windows." that could mean its coming to PS3 or maybe microsoft stopped using that after so many games that had taht slogan appeared on ps3(NG 2 and Bioshock are 2). Either way, im sure EA wants to get their best game on as many platforms as possible.

Shang-Long2847d ago

just make an official announcement already geez. its yes or no EA

pain777pas2847d ago

This is pretty much confirmed they just have to wait for enough time to lapse so the they can release both games on the same disc for a full priced new game. There still is some significant value in the first game that they can still profit from the recent ME2 release. Be patient I say Q4 this year the game will be out and around E3 they'll unveil this game or better yet these games.

FamilyGuy2847d ago

QFT

I'm more interested in Conviction coming than this and I also agree, we don't need 5 differen't articles about this rumor a day.

IaMs122847d ago

Mass Effect 2 will come when Mass Effect 1 comes too. Its like putting GoWIII on the Xbox 360 too. Its story driven game, you need 1 before 2.

vhero2846d ago

Its coming people get over it this no comment is proof they would come out and deny it if it wasn't.

kingdavid2847d ago (Edited 2847d ago )

Sick of these articles tbh.

Its fairly obvious it was gonna come.

Delta2847d ago

I agree with you. If it comes, it comes. Mass Effect is an awesome series, But there doesn't need to be a hundred "Its coming to PS3" articles.

DeadlyFire2847d ago

Game engine is multiplatform. EA/Bioware own Mass Effect IP. Microsoft has no exclusive deal for the game. Since EA took over Mass Effect was pushed onto the PC and 2nd game is likely to get put on the PS3. At this rate 3rd game will be on Mac as well. :P

Funny how the PS3 box makes the ME2 cover with so-so boxart look totally badasser than the 360 one.

Udidntlistenpunk2847d ago

Just like GTA DLC, Fallout DLC, Bioshock, Bioshock 2, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and many many more.

360 has no games.

Bill Gates2847d ago

PS3 = #1
360 = #360

AHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHA
