With Mass Effect 3 releasing in less than six months, players who are looking forward to play the second game on the PlayStation 3 can now do so at an affordable price as the game drops the price.
I got LA Noire for $19.99 via Gamefly, now ME2 for $19.99 via Gamestop! I'm getting both and shelving them for the slower spring/summer of 2012.
Can't stress it enough how much you guys should play ME1. It's wrong that BioWare started selling their franchise at the sequel on the PS3. They only do a disservice to the series as a whole by pretending you can jump right into ME2, browse a comic, and be good to go. I mean you can, but you're really missing out. Mass Effect is better than that.
1) Bioware develops it, it does not publish it. That is EA 2) First mass effect is owned by microsoft not EA hence why mass effect 1 is not on the PS3.
I played ME2 first on my PS3 but eventually bought the first and second for PC :)
Similar story here. I played ME2 first on 360. Liked it so much that I bought ME1 for 360. Beat them several times each, own them both on PC now. Plan on getting ME3 for PC as well. It was a real eye-opening experience playing ME1 after ME2. I recommend everyone play the series on a platform where they can play ME1 and import their save into ME2.
toooo much talking in ME1, felt like that's all i did. ME2 is a good starting point
Well the Ps3 version is finally cheap enough for me to buy since i already played it on PC during release. Seriously I can't go a week without buying a new game this month :( draining my funds.
Thats a PHAT deal...
getting it tomorrow i havent played the game yet so i need to keep up with the story of mass effect.
It's a fantastic bargain, but are they sure you get ALL the DLC? I mean, is it taking into account the weapon packs and alt uniforms for squad members? Either way, terrific deal for a terrific game.
I got the PS3 version of ME2 and you get all the DLC missions and characters. I'm pretty sure not all the costumes and weapons are included... you do get the Blood Dragon Armor. The only DLC that is not included in it is "Arrival" which came afterwards.
I also purchased the PS3 version, PSN Download though. I have all the DLC, so this isn't a issue for me. I'm just asking for those who haven't purchased it. The article here said exactly that the game on sale now "includes all of the DLCs that was released for the title" - Im wondering if they've rebundled the game since I bought it, because when I got the game it didn't come with a few of the less essential DLCs (weapon, armors, uniforms, obviously not Arrival since it wasn't out at the time). The wording of this article makes it sound as if this offer features all the DLC, which is actually exactly what they say unless Im misunderstand what "all of the DLCs" means. Those who are looking to get this may appreciate knowing if its REALLY all the DLC or not. If not, the wording used here is a bit misleading, don't you think?
Ah I see what your saying, it is misleading and I doubt the game was ever repackaged again or we would have had an official announcement from Bioware or EA.
Should of been at a discount price to begin with, seeing as it was a year late to the party...
originally priced at 39.99? um no. it was 59.99 at release.
The author for the article probably doesn't even know what DLCs are available for ME2 specially The Arrival DLC.
