GOONL!NE: EA has announced a special edition for Mass Effect 2, which will released on day of release in the US and UK in January 2010.
Who honestly didn't see this coming, Oh well, good stuff all around.
this will be perfect once i am done with dragon age. wish it was earlier so steam would have had it on the holiday discount period.
There goes my social life. I'll be drooling over the extra content.
yay now my non-refundable deposit on my regular edition pre-order is either lost, or i'm stick with the gimped version
what kinda place takes a non-refundable deposit? I lay out about 10 preorders a year. and i'm always going in and changing them up as i learn more about certain games
I would never do business with those guys, although Toys R'us did try to pull that on me, but I think it was more the employee than the store. I wonder if this is a tin box just like the first Mass Effect LE? I hate those tin-boxes and prefer the steel book cases.
it's with GAME, it's an online sale.
I'll think about picking up this version. I don't usually get collector's editions, but I can make an exception for ME2 (and GoW3 for that matter).
Only $10 more man! Alt source says so! http://www.xbapodcast.com/2...
Thanks a bunch!! I will definitely pick this up then!!
Day 1 purchase (xbox360 only console of choice for real gamers) jump in don't get left behind.
there were reports out xbox overheats while playing this game. if i had an xbox id stay far far away from this game, no point frying the system over it. the superior pc version comes tax free run @60fps+ and costs 49usd :P
Yea this game is a day one game.
lol you cant even afford a 360 kid
@champ21 depends on what kind of system you have, you could be playing it at 120fps or 24fps.. and I hope this time bioware gets the pc ver right, unlike the first which was a poor port with a lot of performance glitches :\ DID NOT enjoy the pc ver even though I was playing it at 1080p... thank god I played the 360 ver first.
even a pc 3yrs old built right will play this game @ 45-60fps. now if your pc is beyond 3 yrs old then a new setup is required, or maybe a 150usd gpu upgrade will do. xbox 360 is essentially a 3 yr old dumped down pc. which is why it plays the game at around 25-30fps.. the last ME on xbox even had fps issues. this one overheats it from the the beta reports.. lets hope we dont get more rrod cases.
Yes, I really want to pay 150 dollars for a CPU and probably another 100 dollars for RAM and more money on a new graphics card. It's not always that simple, a lot of people don't have tricked out computers to run games smoothly. That's what consoles are for, primarily to play games.
releasing on same day as MAG aint a coincidence
It is? Thats funny. ill have to get MAG and this. :)
You're inferring they compete in retail when: a) they're on separate systems, people will get the game that is available on their system. b) gameplay wise they're different, ME2 is completely offline
I'll be getting dis shiiiiiiii day one. =)
It will come with Donald Trump elevators.
I still dont know why this isn't multiplat? I bet this game would sell the most on the ps3 too.
Little upset nerd buddy. If u wish hard enough it just might!!!
It will sell more on the 360. waiting for the fanboys.....
I have been waiting for this announcement for a long time!! I'm glad EA finally announces a collectors edition. Well done BioWare and EA! Happy Gaming! Cheers!!! :D
Special Edition? Is that the one that dosen't overheat 360's? No of course not. We all know that's not possible since the failbox is just some last gen PC parts held together by duct tape.
Why don't you jealous fanboys just put your pride away and buy a 360 to play the game. Unless you have no jobs, live in your moms basement and don't get a big enough allowance. It's simple put away a few bucks for a 360 or a few more bucks for PC, buy, and play the game. Thats what I'm doing for a PS3... WHY? because I'm a gamer not a jealous hater.
...on P.C of course!!! ;-D
If it's going to be reasonably priced then I'll consider getting this version.
$59.99 for PC $69.99 for Xbox 360
I'll take it! One for Xbox 360 and one for PC please. :D
Why would you buy both? I'm not attacking just curious.
Besides the fact that I really like Mass Effect I don’t really have any other reason. Oh, the Collector’s Edition for the first Mass Effect still goes for ridiculous price now that I think about it.
I have the Mass Effect CE, and I'll be getting this CE as well. I definitely like that boxart more than the original boxart. I wish all the games weren't crammed into a four to five month month window for the most part. It started with Halo 3:ODST, then Uncharted 2, GTAIV:TBoGT, Modern Warfare 2, and then several games I'm getting for Christmas (Fallout 3 GOTY, Dragon Age: Origins, Assassin's Creed 2, Left 4 Dead 2) and then next year starts off great with my most anticipated game in Mass Effect 2. I hope for my own sake that from February through August there aren't many games releasing. It's gonna be hard enough to finish all of these, plus other games I'm considering: God of War Collection, God of War 3, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and probably some other as well.
Bioshock 2 Splinter Cell: Conviction Dantes Inferno Lost Planet 2 Dead Rising 2 Singularity Crysis 2 Final Fantasy 13 Brink Crackdown 2 Alpha Protocol Just Cause 2 Alan Wake I am Alive GRAW3 Max Payne 3 Lords of Shadow Fable 3 Dues Ex 3 And of course Halo: Reach... 2010 = :)
must buy for me im so hyped up for this game!!! ME was one of my favorite games of all time!
Every other game is coming to my X360
