dont want WRPGS on ps3
Wh7y did EA have to by Bioware
Anyhow JRPS will crush WRPGs in the comp. so no worries
NO mass Effect on PS3 please. Thats the last sh*t i would want
Mass Effect 2 For ps3 Confirmed!
Bad Mass Effect port on PS3 finished March 2008 or later confirmed
PS3 couldn't run it. I'm sure the deal is for the trilogy not just one game. lol
"The question and answer section was particularly hot on which IPs will transfer over to EA, and the company noted that Mass Effect is published by Microsoft, but the intellectual property now belongs to Electronic Arts and would conceivably from here out be EA published."
Oh looks like ME2/3 could hit PS3 if they ever get made.
I'm more interested in capcom's anouncement next week.
fingers crossed for dead rising 2 or new ip.
is everyone saying mass effect for ps3 and stuff?
it's really not gonna happen, unless the ps3 gets it a couple of months later, but i don't expect that to happen.
ms is really holding tight mass effect so they can hype it up like halo3.
ms is publishing mass effect, and as for ea i think this is a point to tell them NO! they're becoming to much of a monoply
this is going tobe like project gotham racing this game is published by microsoft so it wont go to the ps3, is like ea buys imsomniac, resistance cant go to the 360
Was published by Sony right? They can't bring it to the 360 ever.
EA for all their faults might be a good thing for Bioware and Pandemic as they are the worlds largest publisher of games and these studios will provide them with a lot of talent if used right. Also the current CEO of EA use to be the CEO of Bioware-Pandemic so he already knows what is special about these guys and I am sure that he wont try and ruin the companies, at worst they will make shovelware, but by EA's standard it will be good shovelware.
The series is called Mass Effect the games in this trilogy do not have tag names or numeric association yet.
Whats the point of part 2 being on PS3 when you need the first one to finsh the story?. Part one" will carry your stats and charactors over to the sequels. lol A story driven game thats coming out in weeks is going to have sequels *coming to the PS3* half way through the storyline. lol
If I were EA I would wan't these dudes under my belt aswell.
Basically their 2 biggest developers, are gone from them. Bungie, and Bioware.
Mass Effect = Microsoft'S
that Microsoft is publishing this game as a trilogy?
Some big thangs going down in oct. for the industry. Its exciting times for gaming. Later this month and Next month 4 sure the killer titles masacre folks wallets n purses all over the world. Retailers are going to have to expand there gaming sections soon.
so sonyfans now want Mass Effect after months of mass effect is gona flop lol
Mass Effect 2 and 3 will probably be on the PS3 since EA owns the IP. MS still gets there exclusive, but now Xbox's biggest IP (IMO) beside Halo and Gears will likely go multiplatform.
Good turn of events for PS3 fans. Now if only EA can keep their hands off of it and let BioWare do its thing, lol.
Also, i think we are getting a game from the same IP as Gears.
Halo we will never have, but who knows, maybe well get some sort of game from Bungie towards the end of this generation.
I just hope EA stops half assing all there PS3 ports, or maybe stop porting all together. (They certainly have the resources to develop each game separately
***Jenson pointed out that the upcoming Mass Effect title, to be published by Microsoft, is an IP owned by BioWare, as is Jade Empire. Pandemic's owned IP include Mercenaries and Full Spectrum Warrior.***
published by microsoft,owned by bioware.microsoft would have to have a deal letting them have all three games.but we'll see...
but big companies are taking over.this won't be the last we here of these things.but mass effect might be able to be put on any system.
