New details for the Playstation 3 port of Mass Effect 2 have been revealed in the latest issue of OPM.
Agreed. But I didn't understand this part; "Nearly $100 of additional content, all 3 major expansion packs and over a doze on smaller Pieces of DLC altogether adds up to approximately 20 hours of additional gameplay." All of the DLC couldn't add 20 hours of gameplay in my opinion. Maybe 10-15 at most. And I don't think that all of them nowhere near costs 100 dollars. Not even near. All of the DLC's costs around 30 dollars. If they count Cerberus Network Access too, then it'll be 45 dollars. How did they reach near 100 dollars? Anyway, can't wait for it. Day 1.
This DLC is normally priced at over $2,547. But if you call now, it can be yours for only $19.95! But wait, there's more...
lastdual - i bubbled you for the funny!
I too bubbled thee. You reminded me of "The price is right!" ha. seriously though, this is looking good. Never played the first 1 though so i dunno if i'll be completely lost in this one or not.
You Playstation only guys are in for a real treat. This was a FANTASTIC game.
Here's hoping :)
im interested to see how the interactive comic thing in place of ME 1 works out. I feel like youd be really lost in ME 2 unless Bioware does a really good and deep experience with it :(
” Oftentimes when you got to the PS3 you see stuff like down-resing and using a smaller than 720p resolution to try and get back some of the frame rate. We haven't done that says producer Jesse Houston, we really wanted to try to make it as good, if not better than the Xbox version."
Good to hear we are not an after-thought.
***Everyone looks in Activisions general direction***
@pekolie that made me lol give the man some well well deserved bubbles
*Activision shrugs, goes back to swim in money*
Considering they are using UE3, I need to see the game running before getting any hyped. It is this or Dead Space for january. EA got $60 of mine locked.
Agreed! I'm just hoping i'll have enough money to get them both. I was in the beta for dead space imo it was good but if the single player is anything like the first one then i know i'll love it
Probably in December we will see video gameplays, trailers and everything. Because January is not to far.
LBP2 in jan as well, busy month.
Since Batman: AA is the best UE3 usage on both platforms I've seen to date. -End of line
i will be getting dead space 2 collectors edition for sure. No worries about mass effect cause my bro will probably pick it up @pork chop express Jeez sony why do you have to release so many good games next year i am probably going to go broke
So glad to hear that´s actually a concern.
I just bought this for my PC seeing as I also just started playing through the 1st one. But I may still buy the game for my PS3 as well. Im really interested in seeing how the comic is done to tell the first game and allow you to make the choices that will affect the second game.
"The PS3 version will also feature 3 years worth of engine updates and every patch release for the game." - wow impressed, the first ps3 port (a dam good port i hope) to do something like that.
That should be like a big "duh" though right?
3 years worth of updates is not a common thing specially coming from a multiplat.
"The PS3 version will also feature 3 years worth of engine updates" What the hell does that even mean...I assume they are saying that ME2 has an updated engine, but that is true for all platfoms :S. @SyphonFilter You mean the PC version? 6th post down brua http://forums.n4g.com/PC-Sc... @jjmustoe 90% of the ME2 content was FREE the few paid DLC added up to about $30. @Baka-akaB I'd be suprised if you couldn't play it on a pad on PC. ME1 is hard to replay though, god damn planet exploration >(
No you can't use the pad on the pc version ... unless you rely on stuff like xpadder or joy2key . Still it's not as good imo with those programs , can be even a pain to setup , and the interface was obviously modified for pc anyway . It's not a big deal , i just prefer it that way for Mass effect . As an added bonus i'll be able to play the dlcs (never bought those on the 360 and pc versions , and screw piracy) . It will just be the third time i buy the game :p
Why in the world would anyone want to play the PC version with a gamepad, though? Mass Effect 2 was terrific with kb/m, especially if you have a sniping Infiltrator character.
wich part of "personal preference" , and "it's not really some hardcore fps "with needed aiming skills , didnt get through ? Between playing mass effect 2 with the pc hooked to the plasma , with the pad in hands while comfortable in my sofa , and sitting on the desk in front of the lcd screen on the kb/m , my choice would have been easy Mass effect was always a console game , and developped as such . It plays more than well on pc , but the kb/m combo is hardly an advantage and needed there . It was kinda lame of bioware to remove the option from the pc game .
Sitting on my sofa with my PC hooked up to my home theater and plasma TV with a wireless kb/m and vastly superior controls for this type of game was an easy choice for me. I've played both Mass Effect games on PC and 360. No way would I pick a gamepad over kb/m gor these games. I'm stunned that anyone who has tried both would.
Plenty users complained about that . And it seems to me that you are nitpicking here for the heck of it . It is more than often unlikely that you'd be relaxedly installed in a sofa and laid back , with a keyboard and mouse on your lap , or on some table . At least certainly not as much as compared with a pad . There is nothing to be stunned about his prefs , the forum had plenty people baffled Bioware took the feature out at the last minute when it was there . Some even speculated it was some silly ploy to prevents a few unscrupulous PC+360 owners , from simply pirating the game on PC instead of purchasing the 360 version .
I'm nitpicking? He was complaining about lack of mouse support and I was the one stating it wasn't needed. Congratulations on making ZERO sense with the nitpicking comment. What is it about playing with a wireless kb/m from my couch that just blows people's minds? It's impossible! Remedy said so; that's why Alan Wake was cancelled! LOL. Get a just above waist high tray, put the kb/m on top of it, and relax while resting your arms on the tray. It's really not that complicated of a concept, at least if you have an IQ of 75 or above.
Nearly $100 of additional content, all 3 major expansion packs and over a doze on smaller Pieces of DLC altogether adds up to approximately 20 hours of additional gameplay.
Since I never bought Mass Effect 2 DLC's on my 360 so I will get this on my PS3 :D
let's just play games bud who cares which is better im love ps3 but i also respect the fact xbox360 slim with its games is a great console and i hope i can get it next month
Bio Ware are great developers.
Looking forward to it . The pc version is better , and offer the same possibility to tailor your character without playing me1 (sorry kick ass story , but can't bear to replay it ) again via saves ... however i prefer somehow playing the game on a pad . Not like it's a bonafide and harsh fps .
Interesting. Pretty much those details are very useful for a lot of people doubting about the PS3 version.
I've been holding off getting the 360 version to see what becomes of the PS3 version. It's tempting that the 360 version is super cheap right now though.
I've already beat Mass Effect 1 and 2 on the 360 multiple times but I am excited for the PS3 version cuz of all the content that comes on the disk and to collect all the trophies for the game.
As lame as it I'm sure it sounds to some, hope they do some Home integration. Specifically giving you Shepard's ship quarters, if not something larger, as an apartment space. Since from what I recall, you could furnish and decorate it.
not that ame , even if not at all into it . I remember the 360 avatars getting some mass effect items and costumes
... And how do the 360 owners feel about this, I wonder? :D
How do you feel? Plus this game is out on pc also. I have Mass Effect 1 on 360 and pc and Mass Effect 2 on 360. Waiting till the smoke clears to see if I get part 2 on the pc (steam) or the ps3. I do like my mass effect with a controller so ps3 has the edge right now.
My first thought was "Hey, didn't I play that game almost a year ago? And didn't I get to import my save data from the first Mass Effect, which is an essential part of the experience?" But then again, that's just me...
Was going to hit disagree at first but you do have a point.
I guess each to their own. Have both Mass Effect 1 and 2 on PC. Personally didn't even bother to import character data - played the latter so much after the former, didn't really care about forwarding my character (had already removed game off hard drive etc). Didn't feel like i missed much either. Actually, honestly, didn't really feel like i missed anything. Getting PS3 users an adequate enough wrap up of the back story to make them feel involved/up to speed is far more important than character import novelty in my opinion/experience.
@Pirate Go play Kinectimals and let us enjoy the port.
At least they didn't get a franchise after the whole plot is finished...#cough# metal gear rising #cough#
As I've played both a transferred character and new character.. I can tell you, that a lot changes from the two stories.. So, yes, you did miss a lot. I'd recommend you give it a try. Lmao, and you think a brief story tell, is far more important Than an import of a character who's story you forged?! Okay......
Wrote an extensive reply, but on second thoughts will shorten it to agree to disagree. If you're into the minutiae of your character - can even remember it two years later - then that stuff might be important. I couldn't, and wasn't worried in the slightest (laugh your 'a_s' off if it makes you feel better there; it's simply a fact). The larger overarching plot points are important - without them, the story doesn't exist. But the fork choices to me felt and still feel largely cosmetic (much as they might try and make them feel otherwise). Indeed, they're sort of compelled to - there are basic overarching plot points at play that simply can't be changed.
How do you think we're suppose to feel? It's about to be a year since this game came out and I would guess that most 360 owners would have more than 2 playthroughs.
I'm sure x360 owners don't care the least. I can't speak on x360 fanboys, however.. I'm not butthurt over it.. in fact, I don't care.
The more people that play it the better. Spread the wealth. If you can't play the first one at least read up a good deal on the background story...it's fantastic. I've heard that the wiki has a really detailed version of the first game. People who haven't played it and plan on playing the second should read up on it. You won't be sorry. Edit: Some good details on the story line here. Spoilers for the first game and the books http://masseffect.wikia.com...
I agree Captain Tuttle, i think reading up on the backstory like that (and all the books back story if you're really into it) is probably a good idea if you haven't played the first/don't remember much of it. Ideally anyone playing the sequel will have access to the first, sure, but i still contend the absolute vast majority of the most important (and most intriguing) plot points are linear (by necessity - also needing to tie in with books) and it's more important to bring players up to speed on those than this 'forged in the fire' identification with minutiae of your character, which lol, sorry but i just don't feel (and others may or may not). Actually it would be interesting to see if someone reading that page is more or less able to understand the games universe than a player who played it a couple of years ago...? I smell of whiff of people playing up this import character bit to the nth degree as a way of undermining the upcoming PS3 version (because it naturally doesn't have it) before it has a chance to land. People can say i'm doing the opposite, but i'm truly not (largely superficial 'choose your own adventure' forks aren't the part of the game/story that appealed to me). I own the PC version, and regardless where the 3rd pops up will buy it also on the PC.
(26 Nov 2010 (16h ago)) Mods, ban this troll account.............please!!
Its great that its coming to the ps3, the bigger the fanbase, the more games we get in the mass effect universe :D
dont care. i want. come on january.
Happy that they are dedicated not to release a shitty port like many other devs do these days.
would be epic if it can look as good as the PC port I bought the pc port the other day and I thought I was playing a different game when compared to the 360 version.
It will not look like the PC version. PC quality using the Unreal Engine 3 on PS3? I just don't see that happening. But it seems like they could match the 360 version visually. Unlike some developers, Bioware seems to be pretty fond of the PS3. They've praised it a lot.
They release the second game instead of first game! What are they thinking? Every PS3 owner has a Xbox360 or a good PC to play the game? Well i wanna play the first game on my PS3 first. What the hell is this? But i have hopes that they give us Mass Effect 1 inside Mass Effect 2 bluray disc! If that happens i will deffinently buy it!
exactly with blu ray they could have released 2 in one. But i think that Microsoft has publishing rights on the first one
Sadly, it probably will never happen since MS has rights to the first Mass Effect game. I myself think it's stupid to give us the second game of a story-driven series and try and give us a small understanding of the first game. The comic thing they're making isn't going to out do playing the first and importing to the sequel. It would be like porting MGS 4 to 360 and having someone play MGS4 as there first MGS title. I would say that the whole Mass Effect 2 PS3 thing is a pure example of how having third party exclusives are stupid but at the same time I would want FFXIII Versus to stay exclusives for quality reasons. So it's whatever...
you sure they have the rights? Then how come Ninja Gaiden 2 came to ps3 and MS published that?
Its good to hear their taking the port seriously. But saying something is easy, i'll wait for evidence before commiting to buying. Its like 9.99 on the 360 now, in theory i could just go buy a second hand console + the game for a little bit more than the Ps3 retail price.
i would risk the money on an old 360 console cause of the RROD issue. Better to get a slim instead i know it costs more but its more reliable
It is great to see that they are bringing the PS3 version up to par with the 360 one. What is even more interesting is that they said it might be better in some areas
hell yeah can't wait to play this again!!
played it 4 times on the pc Gonna play it 40 on the ps3 lol
Tried Dragon Age, but fantasy RPGs aren't really my thing. After trying the demo on my brothers 360, I can say this sci-fi TPS RPG is much more interesting...
