Mass Effect for NGP. if MGS4, Uncharted, Killzone, LBP, and Yakuza 4 can get on their, why not a Mass Effect game.

LOL i would love a mass effect game too. Not sure if it would really lend itself to on the go gaming though. It might though who knows. All depends on how they do it.

jonboi242456d ago

Of course it would. How long are actual missions? Some missions are quite short. Exploring systems and scanning planets are good little short diversions. Plus it aout-saves at certain points in missions and it should allow for play-stop-go-play-go moments.

I agree, i forgot abot that stuff. I was just thinking about some of the longer drawn out stuff. You make me want it more now lol.

Bioware may fix the saving problem but they can't really fix the freezing problems that well cause it all about the processor and game performances this been a problem since Fallout 3 and Dragon Age freezing up on PS3.

Really?

Well they can get rid of that freezing. fallout 3 has nothing to do with Bioware btw.
and Bethesda sucks at tech... obiously.

I wish they had some details for other fixes as well.
But they are working with it atleast and hopefully the game will become a lot more playable soon.
If not Im going to get my money back.

"There is a very simple work around to ensure the freezing and corruption issues are minimized. Simply restart your game every few hours. By shutting down and restarting your game, you will not encounter the corrupted save issue."

This sounds more like a memory corruption issue i.e. memory leak, incorrect handing of memory boundary cases or something similar.

Well Mass Effect 1 & 2 were even freezing on the 360. So yea that isn't just a PS3 issue.
