Mass Effect 2, the action RPG, is finally ready to come out on PS3 with a series of exclusive features for the console version for Japan that mainly the look and feel and the availability of additional content.
this may just have to wait till may, there's just too many ps3 exclusives and some good multi plats early next year that just can't be missed out on
I agree 100%. I'm getting this and AC: Brotherhood next Black Friday when their discounted heavily. Theres no reason for me to buy this game Day 1.
Too many games. I feel sorry for the zealots... We should give them some of our exclusives.
@mikeslemonade - Who's we? @ForzaGT - Agreed. A lot of good games coming to the PS3, but AI hope people do buy ME 2, becuase it would be ashame for the DEVs at Bioware doing all that hard work for nothing.
@mikeslemonade some of them ps3 exclusives wont run on 360... lol maybe they should get a ps3 instead where all the real games are coming to
This game is so good i might just buy the ps3 version as well :).. i got the collectors edition for me xbox
mhmm too close to LBP2 for my taste, will wait until there is a drought to play, though I do want to play it and support EA for bringing it to the PS3 but it will have to wait
The Final straw on this game for me is that It will be FULL PRICE for the year old game! The game is around 15 bucks for the XBOX and its been free on PC for ALMOST A YEAR... Plus everyone has seen the walkthroughs on youtube and YAWN! other than a few love scenes it was nothing spectacular like uncharted or Metal gear solid...Ill pick it up used after I finish GT5, Lbp2, killzone, journey Ni nu kuni, and Bleach.
aww, man, I was hoping it to be released around my birthday, Jan.10, aw well, still going to get it anyway.
Stuck it 3 days after LittleBigPlanet 2. Spacing people. The PS 2011 is so packed its coming down to having to choose like between inFAMOUS or KZ3. Why are you making me poor? Why are you making me choose? I want them all. EDIT: Im moving to Germany next month..LoveFilm perhaps?
I'm getting this
Lbp2, mE2 , infamous 2, then killzone3 I'll get them in that order. Just gotta make sure o have the cash
Either this or Dead Space 2!
Not in a million years. ME2 shits all over Dead Space.
death space 2
Honestly its a close call, but for me its a easy one, i already own ME&ME2 for 360, and DS for the PS3.
Buy BOTH! On that note, Dead Space 2 better not let me down. I will most likely rent ME2 if only because I already sunk dozens of hours into it already. If the add-ons are worth a full game purchase I guess I will pony up. The game is discounted so extensively (on PC and 360)the additions better be worth a full game purchase. I feel like ME2 should release on PS3 for $40. At that price more people would be likely to repurchase and PS3 only users would be able to justify buying the game with so many other games coming out in Jan/Feb.
right you are! As much as I love the game there is no way I would pay full price for something that I already own and is a year old. This is just greed. They denied it was coming to the PS3 when in reality they took a payoff from MS to delay it for a year, and they still want to charge full price? I was excited at first when I heard it would have NEW content, only to find it's just the DLC, of which I already own them all. Plus ME1 is awesome, one of the main reasons I own a 360 and there's just no way to replace that, certainly not with what they are proposing....
I still need to get around to playing Mass Effect 2 some more :/
day 1 as well... im really hyped for this
We're replacing 'hype' with 'modest appreciation' from now on. After GT5 was picked at like the Thanksgiving Turkey, I would stay clear of any hype. ME2 getting a lower meta will be an annoyance here for weeks. Let it arrive without making people think uts better or the 2nd coming of the dude as your avatar.
Honestly if the pc got a 64 and the xbox got a 96 Metacritic score if the ps3 version is on par with them two it will get a 96 as well so no worry there :) the game is F-ing awesome... so much so i will be buying the ps3 version also :)
I just want to know when Mass Effect 3 is going to be released.
u and me both
Great game guys, if you never played it before, definitely pick it up if you want a fun single player rpg type game. A lot of fun and its fun to do multiple playthroughs. Takes awhile to do everything you can in the game
Well I dont want to get hyped too early or I dont know if the translation just sucks but this would put Bioware among the top devels on the PS3 (on a technical level) \quote Huston says the producer, the Bioware: "On PlayStation 3 is often used a resolution of 720p, to try to get a more stable frame rate. We want to go further, we will touch 1080p!" \endq Perhaps it is too good to be true and there is a catch to "touch 1080p". Anyway Looking forward to this title.
Maybe theyll implement MLAA to free up some resources to get a higher resolution, just my guess though.
LOL at that... This will be there first Ps3 game i will doubt they will utilize anything to it fullest on it.. Dragon age was ported by edge of reality or w/e so yes this will be the first ps3 game "developed" by bioware
Anything Bioware is a Day 1
Agreed but i'm getting Dragon Age 2 before this.
Anything... except Jade Empire. But, I think they've learned their lesson.
and the sonic game they made
Will be gettin this one, have the money and the time to game even when I have completed it on my 360 :), still support this game :)
agred. I see multiplat console gamers getting this version cause it has the DLC included plus the exclusive Mass1 prologue. A good chance 360 player will take their second or third go with PS3 version. Also it'll sell really well in JP_
Not likely that a 360 player will play through from scratch on the PS3 version. The game is setup to allow for multiple play throughs with same character addding to achievement and to abilities. Playing on a different console you will loose that characters already gained rank and weapons. I myself am playing through again now with the added DLC and ranked up the difficulty which changes my game play alot! Enjoy the game guys.
Initially I had planned on getting this in January, but I think I'll probably wait until the Spring or Summer to get it....I've bought 4 new games since October and haven't started playing any of those yet (FO:New Vegas, GT5, Enslaved(was on sale for cheap on Amazon, so I just scooped it up), and AC: Brotherhood, plus I want to get KZ3 and Dead Space 2 in Q1 2011. Right now, brand new releases like Dead Space 2 and KZ3 are a little more attractive to me over re-releases with extra content like ME2 in Q1 2011, but I know I'm going to get it eventually.
definitely wait to get it. Why pay that much? I bought mine for 360 a couple of days ago for 10 dollars, brand new....wait a little and it will go down in price..big time.
Well they did a great job with dragon age on the ps3 so I think mass effect 2 should be sweet aswell on the ps3. I might just buy this again since my brother hasnt returned my 360 copy.
Im already getting LBP2 and Dead Space 2 in Jan. I may have to wait on getting this. I also just bought it for my PC and am currently working my way through the first one. Still though I may buy this for my PS3 just to see how the comic intro is done and how it plays on the PS3.
well late as usual. this is proabaly going to be the only game ps3 has to offer next year and the 360 game came out first to lol get ready for inferior graphic and inferior sales and inferior gameplay.
The PS3 release list for 2011 is looking pretty good in my opinion.
No need for bashing. This game is good regardless of which console it is on. Glad that others can appreciate the game for what it is.
Sometimes late is better...
The devs said that it will be the same as the 360 version plus it might be better in some aspects. Plus the PS3 has a ton of great exclusives coming out next year. The 360 has exclusives but they are tailored towards the Kinect audience. So far the only hardcore XBOX360 exclusive that is not designed around Kinect is Gears of War 3. Like i always said if it isn't announced it doesn't exist
I'm gatting this and lbp 2 that's how my jan purchase is going to be
I just bought a sealed copy for 9.99 for my 360 on Amazon...I can't believe they are launching this for ps3 at 59.99....
This is an amazing game had it on my xbox 360 but sold the xbox 360 since no good games coming out
2011 is too packed alot of games coming out which I gotta support more than ME like EA giving exclusive content to Dead space 2 and move support gotta support them so they keep it up 2011 is the year of the PS3
Played the hell out of this on the PC. Awesome RPG. But I'll be renting this for the PS3 for completeness. There's quite a few good RPGs coming in 2011, the only thing missing another Fallout.
@greenisgood I can only think that you must either be blind as a bat, or have been brainwashed by ur 360....poor kid...
Did it really say 1080p? I really wanna see some confirmation and whats the change to health? is it regen or is it not?
More likely upscaled 720p to 1080p as most "1080p" PS3 are. As long Bioware uses a good upscaler, that's okay because I rather have smooth framerates with high detail texture than high resolution that causes random drop in framerates and a lot of screen tearing.
Yeah your most likley right, what was healing like on the PC/360 versions?
For those that already played ME2 on X360 but haven't bought any DLC, is the PS3 version that includes the DLC worth $60? For others that own both consoles but haven't played ME2, X360 version was selling for $10 during the Black Friday and regularly for $20. Are the DLCs worth $40-50? Before anyone says PS3 version of the DLCs will be on the disc, even the DLCs are on the disc, Bioware is using Cerberus network to control how the DLCs can be accessed. So, having the DLCs on disc or not, it's still one gamer account activation. As for X360 version 2 discs swapping, there are two swaps in the entire game. About 40% into the game and 90% into the game before going to the final battle. Hopefully PS3 version is as good as Bioware is hyping.
the best version is 15 bucks on amazon right now and will run perfect on any dual core, 2gb ram with a $100 gpu and looks twice as nice as the ps3 version or the 360 version. ..oh and it is the only version that is native 1080p, with gpu supported anti aliasing so you wont have all those nasty jaggies.
omg next month,woot
Cant wait 2 play the best version of ME2
That means it's out a week after LBP2 right? It's gonna have to wait I'm afraid.
this game is sucks .. i played it on the xbox360 , it's worst rpg game i ever saw !! .. no good story and the gameplay taken from other games like psi-ops andit's still sucks !! .. why you people want this !! i want fable and splinter cell !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jan 21st? Ouch. Terrible timing. May very well win some 2010 GOTY awards, but I've no room for it in 2011. Not at full price. :( Releasing within a week of LBP2 and Dead Space 2/Extraction? Wtf were they thinking? Then as I wrap those up in Feb along with other stragglers like 3D Dot and AC Brotherhood, it's straight into KZ3 and Yakuza 4. May have to wait until the summer drought, if there even IS one this year! It shoulda came out in dry December. I'd like to play it, but that ship has 90% sailed.
