The only taste of Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3 that gamers have had so far is a demo that we took a look at before breaking off for the Christmas holiday. Our first thoughts? Aside from an unlocked frame-rate and lighting variations, it was much the same as the Xbox 360 version.
On 13th January, BioWare's community man Chris Priestly, posting on the PlayStation Blog, revealed that "the demo was, for certification and testing reasons, about a two-month-older build than the final 'what you will play when you get it home' version. I think you'll see that the game is noticeably better at launch."
Previous claims that the PS3 version would be the "definitive" version of the game didn't stack up based on the demo code, so the question remains: how does the final game stack up? We're covering the PS3 vs. Xbox 360 side of things in our Mass Effect 2 Face-Off, but here we'll be comparing the demo experience with the final game.
