Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has predicted that Mass Effect will eventually hit PS3, and is "certain" that the third game in the series will be available on Sony's console.
Just go home.
Pfft!!! Patcher is 1000x worse than you know who!
In other words, it won't.
that and fact is ms has gotta b willing ta pay large for the exclusivity.
Is this guy fvcking retarded or something!? How the heck are they going to release the THIRD game on a console before they release the first two?
Ah yes, speculation based on conversations he had with people in the know...could be true....Mass effect is Bioware which is EA...EA on the warpath lately with M$....Battlefield demo on PS3 first, all EA sports being made available for PS move....where's there's smoke???... I thought ME was a three part series...after that...it's anybodies guess...I would think all three will end up on PS3...the game is one of the best RPG/tps action shooter thingies ( crosses many genres ) out there....Hmmmm.... A bigger question is if Gears 3 will end up on PS3...announcing it BEFORE E3 and launching it in April 2011 doesn't seem right...Will have to wait till E3...THAT would be a bombshell....ME who?....
Hummm... if Pachter is "certain" Mass Effect 3 will hit PS3 ... then it probably will not come.
"I have heard from Microsoft and I've actually heard from EA we probably won't see Mass Effect 1 ever on PS3," said Pachter, speaking on this week's GameTrailers.com Pach-Attack. Pacther heard from EA/MS that ME 1 won't ever come to the PS3... That is not a prediction, but information from two source albeit one is suspect.
Of course then I wouldn't no longer get it for my 360, but I guess however much Microsoft is paying EA must be pretty good, though I think PS3 fans should be able to enjoy it too. Well, Mass Effect 2 would have to come on PS3 for there to be Mass Effect 3, because I'm pretty sure that the players would want to continue from ME2, but who knows.
"How the heck are they going to release the THIRD game on a console before they release the first two?" Did SE have to put all the final fantasy games on the 360? No.
ehh then what about Mass Effect 1 and 2?? PS3 user has to pick up Mass effect 3 without playing 1 and 2.. What is that even make sense. @Commander TK Each final fantasy has in own story and they are totally disconnected.
This would be cool, if it happens. What they could do is put out a ME 1 and 2 collector's pack at a lower price point, just like GoW 1 and 2. Heck, even if it wasn't at a lower price, it would still get at least half a million sales. Then release ME3 when it comes out and bam, at least 1m more sales for ME3. But I'm pretty sure this won't happen; though I would like it to. Not because I want to play it on ps3 or anything (PC is better for this game) but because it's Bioware, and I want to see them do well.
"Is this guy fvcking retarded or something!? How the heck are they going to release the THIRD game on a console before they release the first two?" DMC4, FFXIII.... 360 still doesn't have dmc1-3 or FF1-12(except 11)
the sony playstation three could not handle mass effect, entirely the wrong audience
ME1 and ME2 should be on it 1st before saying the 3rd one will be.
Ps 3 needs dead rising 1...
Not necessarily. ME1 and 2 are a continuation of a story. Dead Rising 1 and 2 are seperate stories as far as I know. Plus action games are a little different than a role playing game where you can import characters. The Dead Rising story consists of a virus that infects people and turns them into zombies. In DR2 it spreads across the US. DR2 takes place in a new city modeled after Vegas.
Does Dead Rising have a story though? Sorry, not sure as I haven't played it
You act as if a two system owner is not in the majority ..
Well The Witcher 2 is coming to PS3/360 and you really need to play The Witcher 1 on PC for better understanding of the story.
I absolutely want Mass Effect on my PS3, but I'm not interested in buying a story driven trilogy without a piece. So, I want ME1 and ME2, otherwise I won't care less.
All of you bringing up other games have a point in the understanding of the story but ME is different because the story changes(slightly) depending on your actions in the past titles. So that would mean that ME3 would always play out the same if a PS3 owner bought it without the option of buying the previous titles and changing the experience by completing them differently.
Oh boy....this is gonna hit the front page..... Time to get my popcorn...
It's because PS3 gamers are interested in the game, so it would be smart from Bioware and EA to release it and make some easy money.
Patcher.... shut up pls. Can anyone tell me why they pay this clown? A fortune teller guesses more than him, incredible...
Pachter is an Idiot and it wouldn't hurt my feelings if the stoopid $#!t he says wasn't regurgitated here ever again ;)
since FF went to the 360, you have to be a complete idiot to think that this is beyond the realm of being a possibility
FF did start on Nintendo
The Mass Effect series has no place on the PS3 anymore, it's too late.
to ps3( All the ME trilogy),EA is the publisher and we know they don,t release an exclusive game for either the 360 or the ps3. Note:if some 1 have a good pc then get it on PC(best version).
lmao nowhere did he say he was "certain" and anyway are we seriously gonna have articles each week quoting the guy from his new show on gametrailers? I actually quite like pach-attack but take what he says with a grain of salt, it's just what he thinks may or may not happen and has even said his predictions are more fun than actually what his job entails. i just had a listen to the episde again. All he says is he's certain theres no restriction from them bringing 3 to ps3. but that doesn't mean he's certain it will come to ps3... just that he's certain theres no reason why they couldn't... but realisitically, even EA, would it make sense to spend development time on a ps3 version of mass effect 3 when the console can't have 1 and most likely can't have 2?
haha, I would have thought it more likely to come to the PS3 before Patcher said anything. Why does anyone even ask this guys opinion anymore?
If HHG said that you guys would be sending him death threats by now.
I'm sure Pachter has received his fair share
I sure wish that I could get paid to make stuff up, its probably pretty nice.
first off the title is misleading he is not certain and he never say's he's certain. Granted it would be nice for my ps3 friends to experience the mass effect series but I don't think any of them are losing any sleep over it. but is this considered news? I mean this is almost as bad and posting stories around someone's twitter post.
so no ME3 on PS3? =( well...if it did, ME1&ME2 on one blu ray, or all three in one blu.ray just call it Mass Effect Universe all 3 in one and BAM! there it is...
i dont need it for my ps3, i will play it on my 360, let microsoft keep this trilogy, sonys got more than enough games coming to not have to worry bout it.
He also said that Red Dead Redemption probably won't sell well in Europe, because European gamers aren't interested westerns. Some how I doubt that too. ME trilogy PS3 version depends on what EA and Microsoft did agree when EA bought Bioware. Although Bioware/EA owns ME intellectual properties, MS did publish first ME and it did own rights for that. It's possible that EA and MS did agreed timed exclusivity for ME trilogy and EA did get rights for first ME or EA and MS did agree that ME trilogy will stay Xbox360 exclusive in console side and EA did get rights to publish first ME to PC (and of course all other ME trilogy version too). Hard to say. I'm quite sure that all other games in ME universe will be publish to all HD consoles and some special version to Wii (if there will be more than 3 ME games in this console generation).
Unless there's a specific deal in place with the actual IP, publishing doesn't usually mean too much. Ninja Gaiden II was also published by Microsoft, but because they don't own the IP, Tecmo could publish elsewhere. Similarly, Demon's Souls was published by Sony in Japan, Atlus in the US and Namco Bandai in EU, but Sony own the IP.
What was he on about? Well i aint speaking for the whole of europe but in GB & Ire western films are ingrained in our movie culture aswell,in my dads generation Westerns were hot sh1t. Anyway modern westerns such as Unforgiven & 3:10 to Yuma have got good box office returns over here. So i have no reason to believe that RDR will flop in our part of Europe, because some gypsy fortune tellers says it will.
"Unless there's a specific deal in place with the actual IP, publishing doesn't usually mean too much.

Similarly, Demon's Souls was published by Sony in Japan, Atlus in the US and Namco Bandai in EU, but Sony own the IP." That true, but I'm quite sure that MS and Bioware did have deeper agreement about first ME, because Bioware weren't planning to publish games to PS3, before EA bought them (and that would be stupid if MS didn't pay them something extra) and if rumours are true EA needed MS approval to publish it to PC. Also why would EA wait this long with PS3 version of ME, if they didn't have some contract with MS preventing to publish it to PS3? They did make PS3 and Xbox360 versions of Dragon Age just in 8 months and Dragon Age doesn't use "console friendly" Unreal engine like ME does. Technically EA could make PS3 version of ME in 6 to 12 months if there isn't any preventing agreements.
PATCHER IS A C*** as for mass effect 2 it was never a exclusive cos on pc. i suspect a time exclusive .but if it hits ps3 or not im not botherd.we got way too much to be getting on with.that surpasses mass effect 2 and my needs.
The games werent all that, i have them both and im sorry but other than story they aint got nothin i aint seen before, check my gamercard its the same as my profile name on here, not a fanboy just a gamer.
common sence will tell anyone that who's played it.
no its a standered rpg with a good story, graphics are ok but they aint the best of this gen.
you must aspire to be a stand up comic.
i just dont wear those silly things called fanboy goggles, like i said good story,but gameplay and graphics are not the best of this gen, dnt care if you can swallow that pill or not, next you will be telling me forza owns gran turismo or something.
...'HipHopMichaelPachterShow' !!! ;-D Anyway i got 'Mass Effect 2' for my PC + getting 'Splinter Cell:Conviction' for my PC to(out this week i think) + 'Metro 2033' so it doesn't really bother me. The PS3+PC is ALL YOU NEED for your gaming 'FIX'!!! ;)
unless i had 1 and 2 on PS3 also
No point unless all 3 are going to be released. Even if they did release them i'd play part 3 on my 360 , i need to see how things pan out for my Shep.
Mystic Pachter does it again.
1) Why the PS3 would get the 3rd Chapter and not the previous 2 is beyond me. That's like getting half a book considering how tightly bound the first and second, and most like second and third will be. Contradictory to my normal stance of sequels making the jump and being ok, this is most certainly not. It's like thumbing to the last chapters of a book and finishing...then telling everyone you've read the entire book. Foul play if this is a reality. 2) Pachter is clueless. I need his job! It surprises me that people go to school to get a degree to advance a professional career such as this, but not as much as it surprises me to learn some people PAY for this..."skill". Cut me half his salary and I'll give you some predictions that would actually make sense.
What is he ? 5 years old ?
... the site has twisted what Pachter said... he actually said that he's certain ME3 doesn't have to be tied to MS, however 1 deffo is and 2 probably is. he's saying that in theory it's certain that ME3 COULD come to ps3, but realistically, is it a worthwhile move by bioware and EA when they can't bring 1 and 2 to ps3
This guy is really working for his pay cheque
they would be stupid not to bring it to ps3,its all about money and if they want more they will go ps3,plus it wont get pirated like the other two lol and it will run better on ps3 than the other pc console which has framerate issues lol hope it does,anyway
Final Fantasy games are all Different in regards to story, characters, and gameplay elements and each installment has nothing to do with each other. Now ME 1,2 and 3 all revolve around one compelling story. Think before you make stupid comments like that.
Yeah just like Mass Effect 1 and 2 or how the droids like to dream/cream Mass Effect 1 and 2 on one disc. Because we all know how Mass Effect, Left 4 Dead and Gears have made their way to the PS3. Keep creaming droids you're almost out of lube.
you act as if they are actually good games. Gears is....yes, but L4D is sh1t. It brings nothing new to the table. Just co-op zombies. you can't even aim down the sights of the gun. If I want co-op zombies, I'll play World at War. Played ME1 on my xbox, wasnt very appealing to me. too slow I guess. no big loss there. You talk about creaming over xbox games when really they aren't even that good. You bots are dillusional. Besides at least we CAN cream, you 360 b1tches balls haven't dropped yet so I don't wanna hear it.
*Facepalm* Patcher for the love of god STFU and GTFO.
Who is this Pachter who speaks to me as though I needed his advice?
video games a 3rd in its franchise shouldnt come to another console since ppl wouldnt understand the character developement.
Mass Effect 3?? Wth? How about the second one first? And maybe, with some luck, the first one too? I imagine everybody would be totaly lost beginning the series from the third chapter... =/
Pachter is a complete assclown who has not a single clue what he is talking about. I have no idea why he still has a job because all he does it talk out of his @ss. Nothing he sais is true nor comes true.
but there is a very good chance both games will arrived packaged as something else like "Mass Effect Saga". Only so long EA can not monetize this further.
