GamesCom 2010 is now in the history books, and there was a ton of massive announcements that set the gaming industry abuzz. However the biggest announcement too many gamers was that the highly praised Mass Effect 2 was coming to PlayStation 3 (PS3). This was a megaton for Sony fans and this announcement has to be, as big as, if not bigger than, Final Fantasy XIII going to Xbox 360. While, this is great news for gamers, Mass Effect, the prequel to Mass Effect 2, is not coming to PS3. And with a game so focused on its narrative to some it will seem like the PS3 gamers are getting the short end of the stick. Now this conundrum call into question as to whether, or not a Mass Effect 2 needs the prequel to be successful on PS3.
