The move by Electronic Arts taking ownership of Bioware has prompted much speculation including the possibility of the Mass Effect trilogy making a way to the PlayStation 3. Beyond that, however, what about other Bioware projects?
ahhhh psu those great guys. Btw ''While this is remained unconfirmed by Bioware themselves, it must be noted that the company has given hit to the sequel since 2005.'' tell me whats wrong with that sentence. Recycle much?
I stopped reading after I saw PSU. How about we wait for an official confirmation huh guys ?
There seems to be alot of rumours of Bioware games coming to PS3, just because they are now owned by EA. I wish that they would base their findings on something abit more solid.
it's the same how those xbox guys claim that mgs4 and ffxiii will come to 360. they have no solid evidence, yet they want to say that.
fanboyism is killing this console generation.
Cool man ALOT of games are going to be Multiplatform this gen... I bet MGS4 goes to 360 later and Bioshock and MassEffect series come to the PS3.
nARUTO YOU ARE A NOOB. These are third party titles and Sony and Microsft dont own them. I guarantee you games are gonna be going multiplatform from both system. Micheal Patcher has even said it. ITS GONNA HAPPEN YOU DONT CONTORL THE MONEY AND THESE COMPANY ONLY WANT MONEY. If its not first party and there is no deal its gonna go Multi platform. Period. We dont know Sony might have a deal over FF 13(I think they do and and MGS and also those 2 Rockstar Exclusives. I reall think Bioshock and Mass Effect series are comoing to the PS3 too. Its not Halo. Take Two owns Bioshock.. 2KBoston was looking for PS3 developers a year ago. Bioshock is coming to PS3. They will deny it and say its exclusive because it is(timed) but THIS IS BUISNESS. If they can make money they are going to I GUARANTEE YOU unless Sony or Microsft pay them off. These are companyts making money and thats it. Luckily U KNOW ANYTHING Gran Turismo, Killzone, Resistance, Socom, Syphon Filter, God of War, Motorstorm, Ape Escape, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted, Jak and Daxter,Twisted Metal, Wipeout,Legend of the Dragoon,Shasdow of the COLOSSUS, Sly Cooper,Infamous,ICO,Dark Cloud and many more.
Sony is the fourth largest publisher in the world only behind Activsion/Blizzard, EA and Ubisoft. They are BIG,and making many games for the PS3 right now.
Dude EA owns Bioware. The Mass Effect series is coming to the PS3 and thats all there is to it. They dont owe Microbucks anything.
2K is also thirdparty. Its just too easy... Bioshock is gonna be ported. Ofcourse they lie and say no, no no just like Konami about MGS4 but its gonna happen...both consoles are too close in sales and userbase. It relaly is probably gonna happen but I also see Sony making a deal to make sure MGS anf Fianl Fantasy never leave PS3. We will have to wait and see. Either way u got it on ur console first. The PS3 BY FAR has the besy first party games and alot more being made. 3rd party games too but they will pick up more by 2009 or 2010 as the PS3 really gets into its stride.
I think it'll stay an Xbox 360 exclusive, but really who knows. I think it ultimately depends on how much independence EA as Bioware's owner wants to give them in determining what platform/s they wish to develop for. While ex Bioware-Pandemic CEO John Riccitiello runs EA now and both parties have said they want Bioware to be kept independent, it really is up to EA to see how much 'independence' they want to give to them
Jade Empire was a great game and I enjoyed it thoroughly, one thing I really like about Bioware is that they're willing to take risks on new and exciting IPs like this and Mass Effect
Well for once I agree with you!
Except for E.A. giving 'take over' companies lots of freedom and independance! I was in Bullfrog when E.A took us over, and despite the promises, they simply ripped the cash they could from our IP's and amalgamated the staff to typical E.A projects. At the time I said - 'you wait they'll have me assigned to a football game within a year'. It was less than 3 months before I was on a football title, and 3 months later I left and was starting a new company. It's the same with all the great companies E.A have bought over the years, the only one seeming to have retained a little of their identity is Criterion. I trully hope bioware can retain some of their corporate identity, but past experience would suggest they will assimilated like all the others that were absorbed before them..
Jade Empire 2 will be welcome in this house on any platform (well, 360 or PS3 as I want it HD!). The first game was one of my all time favourites on the original xbox and I remember it with a lot of fondness...
I hate to say it but I agree with Zhuk also. You must of had one heck of a new years celebration.
Finally a common sense after all without the x360 fanboy-ish. Geez, I'm dreaming or what!? o_O
Nah its his split personality thingy, you see normally he acts like a blind 'fanboy' on the new comment. And on the fourms he acts all logical and actually doesn't let his fanboy other half let lose. But it looks like this time his logical half slipped up.
Somone must have hacked Zhuk's account and posted a sensible comment just to tarnish his reputation.
mgs4 WILL STAY ps3 exCLUSIVE
AND BIOSHOCK AND MASS EFFECT WILL STAY ON 360/PC exclusive
EXCLUSIVES ROCKS FTW
MULTI-Plat games SUCKS
WHO CARE JUST PLAY THE DAMN GAME...
who cares if it goes to ps3, mean I don't give a sh$t. Only aPs2 gamer that bought a xbox to play this it should matter to. We all know Ps3 fanboys don't play 360 franchises. It would probaly sell more on a 360 anyhow, just like MGS would on a PS.
true that man.
i'm so tired of these topics. they are not going anywhere, and I'm wasting my time here to discuss. I'm really really stupid.
Who the hell writes these articles? I suggest they do some research before publishing false information. Microsoft own the rights to mass effect, do you think they will allow it to go on the ps3?
They are publishing it, the IP belongs to Bioware. And Bioware is owned by EA. EA LOOOOVES money. Unless Microsoft pays them off, it will come to the PS3. Easy way to sell more copies off of a game and make more money.
this brings 360 fanboys closer to how ps3 fanboys feel when they say mgs4 is going on the 360. When it's clear that it won't happen. IF it does ps3 owners will be playing Resistance 2 along with a bunch of oter games while 360 owners are playing a barebones 360 version
Hope it does... spread the wealth Bioware
Jade Empire = silent gem IMO
The same can be said when the PS3 gets half assed ports spike. It works both ways.
360 Exclusive Zhuk? Exclusive as Bioshock?
They are multiplatform on PC retard
PC > X360
its already in development. If it does come to PS3 it will be way late in the game per usual.
I own a 360 and I still hope it'll become a multiplatform game, because the first game was great and why not letting other gamers enjoy this one? Also they would probably make more money (which they really deserve!)
LOL..... This is just getting to ridiculous, IF Mass Effect comes to PS3 it won`t be for at the very least 1 year, If not then when the Sequel is released for 360, and that is one hell of a IF, in the realms of Fantasy speculation.
However Jade Empire has MORE chance of being multi platform than mass effect, Just because EA now owns the company doesn't mean there wasen`t something drawn into contract where the 360 would have exclusivity on games like Mass Effect remaining exclusive to 360.
Is this Rumor Propaganda created because of the MGS4 for 360 Speculation today? I think so, Fanboys are all as bad as each other.... In the words of the T, I pity the fools.
But anyways. I can only see JE2 be PC/360. I played the pc version of it. while it didn't feel better than the xbox version, it was family. PSU needs to stop speculating. Just because EA happens to be part of a game doesn't mean everything becomes Multiplatform :\
of course they wont EA are greedy and money-grabbing they wont keep massively demanded and popular titles like mass effect let sit on just one console- even if it is in 1 year or even 2 years ME and JE2 will find its way onto the ps3- maybe if the publisher was someone nicer then it could stay but since its the most notoriously greedy publisher then there is no way in hell ME and JE2 will stay exclusive, which is just as well i kinda wanna check out mass effect although im not sure about jade 2, i guess il have to find out more about it to get excited
The GBA, DS, GC, Xbox 1, and ps2 will get a "version" LOL
EA isn't gonna be the one to make the port, I'd hate for Ps3 gamers to think Bioware sucks because of EAs stupidity
if it does i can almost guarantee ea is gonna make it a half-assed port
I thought that MS made a deal with EA/Bioware to have Mass Effect 1 and 2 only on the 360, as for Jade Empire, MS can make another deal to keep it on the 360/PC.
