BioWare Wants Mass Effect Trilogy Done on 360

1UP: We live in an age of franchises, when sequels are planned before a game ever hits. BioWare's Mass Effect is no exception, with heavy hype for the game already fueling talk of a trilogy. The two remaining games could be on the way fast, if BioWare president Greg Zeschuk has anything to say about it.

It'll never happen because 360 will only be around for another 2 - 3 years max. I know all u xbots want to belive that microsoft will never do that to u, but they will just like the orginal xbox lmao 4 years life span

They will have to move on to the PS3 with Bioshock 3.

with dipping sales in JAPAN and EU and billions in losses through repairs...i dont think x360 would be around for more than a year or so.

x360 is probably MS last console

with Microsoft's full consent, you presumed?

Because Microsoft has exclusivity contracts for at least the first BioShock and the entire Mass Effect trilogy.

On the other hand, I don't think BioWare will be able to finish the trilogy on this gen, given how much time BioWare takes to make each game. It'll take another five years to complete the trilogy. They *want* to, but they won't be able to.

Those games couldn't run one the PS3 let alone devs willing to downgrade hard work for PS3. Bioware doesn't want to develope the rest of these games on the next xbox.

MSft is going to continue supporting the 360 after the next box releases much like Sony has with PS2 and PS3 its not like MSft will make this new box thats not able to play 360 games.

It would probably take twice as long and be twice as expensive to do the games on PS3, plus the tools he mentioned that make the next games easier to build would probably not work with the PS3. The reality is the PS3 is crap to build on.

Besides, if the game is huge, no way M$ will let it go anywhere but on the xbox.

Way to just pull something out of your ass. They didn't continue to develop for xbox 1 but because you say so they will this time. I don't know if your blood is douche or if you just drink a tall glass of it every morning but your clueless.

Ms could use some more features from sony and vice versa. I want to see more out of microsoft. It's easy to bash a new system but one that's been out over a year has no excuse for 2 games that push the envelope(Gears and Bioshock) everything else was no more impressive than xbox. Mass Effect will be awsome as well and Halo 3 but why so long.

Motorstorm gets hype but in the end it's a fun little car game it's not a graphical powerhouse. Heavenly sword and lair are both unparalleled in data size,graphics,and AI regardless of reviews.

So ride your high horse all you want cause I've had my xbox since launch and the true next gen has just now began. Brand loyalty is stupid and each console learns from the other so I hope MS is either gonna finally put this system to use or they need to put out another.

You Know it's no Big Deal if they have to Continue the Trilogy on the 3rd Xbox when it's released between 2010 and 2012 which i guarantee will happen, ever think about that Guys?

PlayStation3603833d ago

that is true. It's like GoW 1 & 2 for the PS2, and GoW 3 for the PS3. Nothing wrong with doing a trilogy over 2 systems.

iNcRiMiNaTi3833d ago

like halo 1 & 2 on xbox 1, halo 3 on 360

gears of war is supposed to be a trilogy.....hmm.....

i believe the next game is 2 years away and each game will be 2 years apart. so hopefully the life span of the 360 will be 6 years. i know people are gonna say that it wont happen because of DVD9. but theres a new disc format called HD VMD it runs on standard dvd players all it needs is a update which can be done with the 360 twice a year update and it can hold up to 40 GB on a single disc. hopefully they implement that into the 360.

ps3 crap to build on?

so you've developed for playstation before. please tell me how it is. because im going to college for game design and would like some insight on developing for such state of the art technology with TRUE NEXT GEN HARDWARE, RATHER THEN OLD GEN HARDWARE WITH A STRONGER GRAPHICS CARD. PLEASE TELL ME?
