EA PR not confirming Mass Effect 2 for PS3, only 360 and PC. That's all folks. Back to a more manageable tweetstream. Ngai Croal
Hehehehehe lol Bubbled up.
No Mass Effect 2 for you!
:) i see what you did there. and i like it. bubbles for you
I think its on pc too u tool! So i'll get the superior v. playing it at it max while you suffer on a low and alot of frame rate problems (enjoy)
i got an i7 with 6 gbram and a geforce 280xt. and yet il play it on the 360, lot more fun on my 42 inch plasma, then my 22 inch flat panel.
Its still going to the PS3. Ofcourse it is. They just have their own reasons not announcing that yet. You can only guess what their strategies are but still people, think a little deeper. Its high likely we will see a timed Mass Effect 2 exclusivity for X360/PC and then later a version with extra content for the PS3. Now at this moment that would be stupid for them to announce. Furthermore I think we will see a Mass Effect 1 port for the PS3 also. This way EA would earn the most money plus more people can enjoy the game.
You can't hook your computer to your plasma? What kind of gamer are you, dude?
Am I missing something? I mean here's buddies bio and all I can see is that he has a video game blog for newsweek. http://www.newsweek.com/id/...
I don't see how EA is denying it for PS3, either. It says that it's multiplatform. Now let's set aside our fanboyism. Let's set aside our preferences. Let's set aside our favorite console and ask this very simple question: - If Konami said that MGS4 was going multiplatform, would we think for even a SECOND that it wasn't coming to 360? Why then are people trying to skirt the issue and make excuses for the "multiplatform" label? It's perfectly logical and reasonable to assume that "multiplatform" means a PS3 version also.
I got owned !!! lol
@GWAVE- Only time will tell if it is going multi-platform. I own all 3 systems so I have insured that I get the best from all worlds. So I did not worry if MGS4 was going to the 360, I did not worry if Bioshock was going multi, etc because I knew I would have the opportunity to experience the best. Your question " If Konami said that MGS4 was going multiplatform, would we think for even a SECOND that it wasn't coming to 360? "- Well if a lot of Sony's games were released on the PC as well then it would be a toss up whether they meant the 360 or PC. On topic, no one should never say never on anything in this industry (unless they are the company involved in that decision). If MS2 stays as an exclusive to the 360 then great for MS. If is goes to the PS3 as well then hats off Sony. It's okay to have a preference of gaming consoles, game genres, etc. We can all go around and say that a certain game is superb while other say it suck just for sakes, but each console has produced top notch games that are good to look at and play.
didn't they say something about this a while back?
be a time exclusive. This is EA we are talking about.
The game isn't coming until next year: http://multiplayerblog.mtv.... "An EA rep just confirmed to me that Riccitiello was indeed talking about EA’s Fiscal Year 2010, which would date “Mass Effect 2″ as coming during the January-March 2010 timeframe."
At least there's a projected release date now Q1 2010 for ME 2 and bad company 2 ^^^ beaten by 1 minute,sodding duel shock 3,weres my keyboard
PC Windows = Microsoft Xbox = Microsoft ^^^there is no other way^^^ But by all means, don't let me stop you from thinking you will stick it to Microsoft by buying the PC version XD
If EA already confirmed ME2 for the 360 and PC why wouldnt they confirm it for the ps3 too if they were making it for the ps3? Why did they say that rumors of ME goin to the ps3 were wrong ? AS for the multi plat quote well lets see 350 makes 1 the PC makes 2 yup that multi plat alright.
Show me a direct quote, not something from Ngai, where EA said 360 and PC confirmed. If you look at what was actually said: http://news.teamxbox.com/xb... then you will see that Ngai and Gamespy were completely wrong in their interpretation. If you are familiar with Croal's views you would understand why he did what he did.
I was wrong I thought the Bioware studio would do the PR and not EA. Can't win them all. LOL #1.12 posted that mess of what some would say is news as proof of something after that same news gets debunked.
It's your opinion that an import is a better car. Just about every domestic car manufacturer is using import technology. Chrysler alone uses Mercedes, Mitsubishi and Hyundai tech just to name a few. GM's used Toyota for a long time and have moved on to other Japanese partners. Ford does the same thing with Mazda. You drive an import because you want to drive one, not because it is better. -Death
http://www.shacknews.com/on... "When asked about specific platforms for Mass Effect 2, an Electronic Arts representative told Shacknews that no details were available at this time." Hear that? It's the sound of Mass Effect exclusivity slipping away.
Come on people, use your sense, by next week or end of this week it'll be back to being an 'Exclusive' for the 360, AKA 360 first, PC later. A vast majority of '360 Exclusives' make their way onto the PC at some point. That's the facts and that's all there is too it.
No one has ever said the only platform this game will be on would be the 360 lol. Read the text again and all the past statements/announcements. The only time this game is talked about as exclusive is from the console market point of view. The devs have said this game will be exclusive to MSFT's platforms from the start and why not the first one was. Most of the gaming communities speak from the console market perspective. If PSP was powerful enough Sony would double release titles on both their platforms this generation and most would still say PS3 exclusive because most speak from a console perspective. 360 fanboys wouldn't say I'm getting it for PSP to downplay PS3 lol.
http://www.shacknews.com/on... "Despite the first Mass Effect being billed as an Xbox 360 exclusive, famed developer BioWare tells Joystiq that it has "never confirmed any plans of Mass Effect exclusivity for the trilogy." pwned And you should use your sense. There is no way EA in their current money hurt is going to bypass the PS3 that will be on it's way to 30 million consoles at the time ME2 ships.
well ME2 will eventually be on the PS3.....no worries here.
a High-End PC and a PS3...I never miss a good game.
ah..... so now multiplat means coming to ps3 as well... ok, how many times have 360 exclusives been labeled as multiplatform because it is also on PC. PS3 fans always use this as a way of arguing that 360 exclusives are not really " exclusive ". So could the same not apply in this case ? maybe by multiplatorm they mean its going to be on both 360 and PC because according to ps3 fans that is "multiplatform"... or have the rules changed again. it is sad, i mean i don't see any reason why it should not end up on the ps3 as well... its a good game, one that everyone should get the chance to play. the way i see it, it may end up a timed exclusive. we will have to wait and see. pardon the little rant above, but i do get tired of the constant hot and cold flipping that some people do when it suites them.
http://xbox360.gamespy.com/... One thing we do know for sure is that the game will be released on Xbox 360 and PC, although it's not yet known if it'll be a simultaneous release or if it will be staggered like the release of the first game.
That isn't what was said. Gamespy, notorious for the MS leanings this gen is inaccurate. What John Riccitiello said was, "BioWare will release Mass Effect 2 on multiple platforms"
I actually agreed with your above comment! GASP. This one...not so much. If you think Gamespy is biased than it appears there is little help for you...I diagnose you with paranoid schizophrenia. JK. Hear me out: Gamespy/IGN network is responsible for for the online infrastructure for many games, notably Unreal Tournament 3 for the PS3.
I know, I have access to the U3 dev kit. But that isn't the same division of Gamespy at all. Not even close. Think of it how Sony and MS compete in consoles then Sony runs Vaio ads that advertise Windows Vista. Well the two Gamespy divisions are even further apart.
I'v been posting links showing that Bioware will release the PC version some time after the 360 version for weeks.
If Mass Effect 2 comes out on the PS3 it will save me the trouble of geting it on my PC.
Yeah, I do remember Bioshock. One difference to note is that there was game code written for the PS3 leaked when the game was first announced. So that one was just a timed exclusive.
but c'mon, they denied it, we had no way to confirm it, and until the more "official" gaming sites confirmed it, none of us had more than a hunch. The same hunch 360 owners seem to have about MGS4.
Also Bioshock was not published by microsoft game studios, and if the ps3 would have been around in the capacity is now it would have released multiplat. MassEffect im afraid will stay with MS no matter how much money they throw at Bioware.
Mr.Croal has talk ...Nothing to see here..move on
First it was "Mass Effect 2 is a 360 exclusive" Now it's "We're not confirming nor denying Mass Effect 2 on Ps3". Can't wait to see what extras are in the Ps3 version
I really hope it gets ported for ps3 owners this desperate people who bought ps3 have had a rough time and I think ME one of the best games this gen, you deserve a good game to play
"for ps3 owners this desperate " lol yeah cause they want a game on their game console, please god anything but a gamer wanting a game on their GAME Console.
? ps3 owners seem desperate for ME so I think EA should just give it to them
"people who bought ps3 have had a rough time" ??? Well i had a BLAST with my ps3 since i bought it at launch. Oh and btw the only console i ever got to know beeing desperate to buy every exclusiv onto theyre system is microsoft. They try to get every IP out there because the only thing they have is halo and gears. And even halo was a pc Exclusiv until ms stepped in with the money bags and bought bungie an dhalo for a exclusiv xbox1 launch.
That quote means the rumor about multi platform was about PC/360 and not a confirmation of a PS3 version as the media had suggested lol. ME2 was never announced as 360 exclusive. ME2 was talked about as only for the 360 in the console market with the PC version coming some time after the 360 version on the windows platform. The twisting of words is the reason you people seem ignorant to other fans of other consoles.
Games that come on the PC and 360 are always called exclusives so I think this would point against it being just on the 360 or PC. Until I hear a direct quote specifically stating its coming to the PC and 360 only I'll assume EA will act like they always do and make it multiplatform. If not oh well, I'm not quite so sure whats so special about ME but I guess a lot of people like it.
this came out during the question and answer section which Edge online didn't wait around before publishing their article.
Great, Now we can move on again, hope you guys had your fun.
Thanks for sharing, lol.
that was disheartening news, the Uncharted 2 taste washes out that foul taste.
Keep dreaming, its your right to do so.
People can we get past it. Some people seem to be getting their feelings hurt if a PS3 version is announced. This might be a timed exclusive or EA might be announcing the PS3 version later. What does it matter? EDIT: Foxgod, you seem to be holding a lot of acrimony towards a lot of people. No one is attacking you man.
Heh lol, are you sure about that ? :P
ME2 will be on the PS3 sooner or later. You are setting yourself up for a big dissapointment.
That quote means the rumor about multi platform was about PC/360 and not a confirmation of a PS3 version as the media had suggested lol. The rumors/news were: Inaccurate in·ac·cu·rate (n-kyr-t) adj. Mistaken or incorrect; not accurate.
i really want to play the game but i won't buy a 360, and my pc is dying.
I'm probably going to spend the first hour of Mass Effect 2 on Ps3 just customizing my class
you haven't played the first mass effect. You don't customize your classes, you pick one. you only customize your face
Also Bioware says that since its a trilogy we will be able to transfer are character from ME1 to each chapter of the trilogy.
1 year to find out, EA hasn't spoken up yet...
So quick to 'debunk'. And based off some journo's twitter feed? Really??? Guess you people don't like it when its the 360 'losing' exclusives ;)
it's the twitter feed of a respected journalist who was actually involved in the question and answer section of the conference call. that's why I approved this article.
hes still in shock, his euphoria was torn out of him so quickly that he still doesnt know what hes up to.
The conference call made clear that the game would be released across "multiple platforms". From THAT language, that could mean any amount or types of systems. This two line thing that could've came from anywhere doesn't prove anything, actually. It actually came from Twitter (which, by the way, I'm not sure how THIS was even approved to begin with). They only found the name of someone from Newsweek (who, by the way, wasn't listed yet as hearing anything about the conference call), and you and a few of these other guys are jumping on that point and pushing it as your proof that whoever posted THIS onto Twitter is correct and who you believe it would be. And yeah, it seems like there are a few that are so in a rush to debunk the possibility that they'll try to find anything. The same people who said we shouldn't care that FF13 went multiplatform are now whining about the possibility of ME2 being MP. PLEASE explain that logic to me, because I don't get it. EDIT: Thanks for also showing that you're scared for no reason whatsoever by posting those alt sources. I officially never want to hear you say that we shouldn't care if a PS3 exclusive goes multiplat ever again, because you seem to really be too quick to disprove this. Again, why are you so scared about this possibility? @Foxgod: With all due respect...PLEASE be quiet! You're digging your hole deeper every time you run your mouth about this.
the speed of the microsoft defense force in getting counter articles written has been amazing to watch this generation. I think I have clocked @ just under two hours in getting someone to write an article SPECIFICALLY addressing another article that was just published the same day. But of course theres nothing to see here folks just gamers being "organized".
Bioshock was supposed to stay exclusive...and look how that turned out xD
BioShock was never exclusive. It released on the PC and 360 at the same time.
You know what,I might pick up the PC version along with the LE Ps3 version,so long as the game is properly optimized
my pc can easily run it, i am gonna play it on the 360 tho.
Keep trying to get a rise out of people. You didn't get a response on your first troll: "I'm probably going to spend the first hour of Mass Effect 2 on Ps3 just customizing my class " So you are trying again..
It's Foxgod trying to rile people up, not that guy. Get it straight.
