We've been teased by Bioware last week that there will be a Mass Effect 2 surprise coming this week. Well, to give you the exact day on when to expect that surprise, tomorrow is the day Mass Effect 2 fans are looking for.
a different mode or information on returning characters. Hopefully something significant. Boxart is no big deal and i hope that isn't the suprise.
PS3 release date!!! (joke) I would say is a Co op Mode.
i hope its good.
Similiar to how ND announced it in U2.
I know you might have been joking but in all honesty, it would only benefit us all if they actually did release it for all systems. Why? Simply put, with the massive layoffs EA has been experiencing, they need all the revenue they can get and without it, they will begin to cancel new IP's and go with the same battle plan that Activision has, sequel after sequel, after sequel. If you want whats best for you and your gaming, you all need to support multiplatform games.
very true unless MS is providing some sort of incentive (i.e. money) to keep the game exclusive. I think Sony paid to keep MGS4 exclusive forever. Same may've happened here. It's not like MS is frugal when it comes to securing exclusivity and this is perhaps one of the most anticipated 360 games next to Halo Reach. To lose it would be pretty major.
It's a Demo!
LOL maybe it is the revamped site.!!!!!1 How funny would that be? I hope not though.
Its either Co op OR multiplayer most likely Co op
I hope not.
I beat that game like 5 times with no multiplayer. But uncharted 2 turned out to have a really good multiplayer and I didn't want to see mp in that game either, so hopefully I'm wrong.
Didn't they have a surprise a few days ago and now are doing another one? Jeez, can't really complain, but they sure are giving fans of the series a lot of things. Which means I should pre-order that limited edition soon...
Bioware announced a few days ago that they were going to have a surprise next week. The surprise tomorrow is probably the one they announced a few days ago unless you're thinking of another one.
I appreciate what they'll be doing but the anticipation always kills me.
@Homicide: Not to sure, but I thought they had already announced that one so I thought this may be a different one. It's so hard to keep up with the amount of 'surprises' that are wrapped around Mass Effect 2 @10 steps back: Agreed. Trying my best at the moment to take the game off of my mind for a while.
they r bumping up th3e release date
With the poor quality of Dragon Age Origins on the 360 I hope that is not the case. Bioware need to keep this in the oven and continue to improve on it.. If it has the same performance/graphics of DA:O on the 360 it will be a let down. I will still enjoy it because of the great story and characters but it will be like the first one.. An almost masterpiece that fell short due to technical issues.
Bioware developed Dragon Age for the PC primarily so its really no surprise that the 360 and PS3 got the lesser version. Mass Effect 2 on the other hand is a totally different story, devs have ironed out the technical kinks and have tweaked the engine. How are the gfx all that bad for Dragon Age anyways?!? The sheer amount of content totally overshadows the importance of graphics, the art direction more than makes up for it. Dragon Age also runs quite smooth on the 360, I'm about 25hrs into it and have it installed on the HDD, quick load times and smooth as butter. Mass Effect 2 will be just like Mass Effect 1 except better in every possible way with technical issues left in the dust with Mass Effect 1. I have no doubts that Bioware has addressed these issues. Its just disappointing how you have to be so negative. Think positive, things will be better off for you.
I called Mass Effect just short of a masterpiece. Not sure how much more positive you want me to be. But if it involves lying to myself than no thanks. Dragon Age suffers from bad jaggies and frame rate on the 360. Read the reviews if you want a second opinion.. There is a reason why the 360 version is the lowest scoring of them all. I have high hopes for ME so I hope they did work out all the kinks. If they didn't, they won't hear the end of it.
Anyways, I wasnt talking about your comment of Mass effect being just short of a masterpiece, which I tend to overlook those small technical issues, yes small, easily overlooked to me, it was a masterpiece. I was referring to having a positive attitude towards how Mass effect 2 will be. Why would you even think that the graphics would be the same as Dragon Age? There have been videos released and pics and they all obviously look much better than Dragon Age. Dragon Age looks fine, nothing oustanding of course but it definitely doesn't look bad... jaggies? Hmmm didn't really get out my magnifying glass so I couldn't tell ya. The frame rate on the 360 version is smooth, The PS3 version is the one with a frame-rate drop. I wasn't expecting the console versions of Dragon Age to look amazing anyways, I was just happy the game was available on consoles. I have read and seen many reviews and in person experience, I have the game installed on my HDD and I am 25hrs into it, I haven't noticed any frame-rate drops and the gfx are fine. The graphic fidelity may not be sharp but the art direction is good. Bioware has always listened to its fans and their feedback, they aren't sloppy developers, like I said before I have no doubt whatsoever that Mass Effect 2 will be an improvement on every level over Mass Effect 1. You seem to have the vibe of a 'doubting Thomas'.
Better than a 1 hour install you play salve!!!!!!!!!!!
wait,so your saying its coming to the playstation 3? .. i knew it all along.. i would wait an hour install to play he superior version with better visuals then multiple discs with garbage SUB -HD graphics. 640p anyone? .. HAHA epic fail! @ Shutupandtroll .. you sir bot need to stop living in he late 90's sucka.. get wih the new age,the modern times. Only on Playstation 3.
Dude how is it better than an install. I could just watch television while the game installs and then when it's done I'll play it without thinking again about that install. But when you're playing a game with multiple discs, you will continually be thinking about when you will need to swap.
It takes less than 30 seconds to swap a disk, what is your point? I`d rather do that than watch tv with a brand new game sitting on my sofa.
I guess we`ll have to wait and see. PS3 fanboys are praying right now.
why pray for something thats allready true. we all know its coming out for ps3 soon,just stop living in denial Mr bot and maybe you will learn to enjoy games.... . . . on the ps3 that is MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
It has to be co-op. DA would have done well with drop-in co-op.
New Trailer showing last new Character Pre-order comes with Bad Company 2 beta (both published by EA and that would raise the popularity of both games) Co-op/multiplayer (Uncharted 2, Bioshock 2, Dead Space 2. Why not Mass Effect 2) Mass Effect Flash game that can earn you armor (Think Dragon Age Journeys)
I CANT TASTE IT NOW PS3 REALESE!!!!
PS3 fans need to be shown what next gen means, so it's only natural that after they threw Uncharted 2 away that they'd be more interested in seeing this game be released on PS3 ;) Just buy an Xbox 360.
Holy sweet Jesus. You kiss your mother with that mouth?
boxcover? getting the CE anyway. I cant wait for this game!
Well it's not a surprise anymore.
Possible PS3 release announcement. That would be nice.....
...and actually BUY the games you DO have for the PS3. It's pretty damn pathetic that EVERY SINGLE EXCLUSIVE on the PS3, has been largely ignored, compared to exclusives on the 360. All you do is TALK about all of the "AAA exclusives" for your favorite console...and then less than 10% actually bother BUYING them. Yet, you'll spend countless hours scouring the internet for news of a 360 exclusive possibly jumping to the PS3....even though you'll never buy it anyway....just because you're so insecure about your console purchase. ME/ME2 isn't coming to the PS3 anytime soon...maybe NEVER; get over it, and go play Uncharted 2 some more until GOW finally arrives.
Why do you care so much about what another gamer wants? It's a damn good game and it deserves to be played by anyone that wants to play it. I would love to see it released for the PS3 even though I'll be buying the PC version.
Gamer71...who peed in your cheerios?
Well, someone is clearly jumping to conclusions. "Its a jump....to conclusions map." Mind you that I personally have bought all major titles on the Playstation 3 and in no way shape or form ignoring them. If I were to ignore any titles right now it would be cross platform, such as Borderlands simple because I do not have the time or money to invest. Partly because I am playing my PS3 exclusives as well. Just stating that it would be nice to see ME release on PS3. =)
new demo coming out on Xbox Live marketplace
PS3 gay fanz need and pray for Mass effect 2 on ps3 more then all ps3 exclusives hehehehehhheheheehheehe bcuz thay know xbox 360 have more and biggest exclusives but i am sorry gaystation owenrs just keep dreaming
I bet that my cat is older than you...
how many FF is that now? Same femenine looking douche of a main character trying to save the world from another douche with longer hair and who has no firends ......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz what? where was I??? Oh yeah so you can see why the poor ps3 fans really want MASS EFFECT 2 on their system. I can feel their pain, just in need of a real AAA RPG title because that FF turd just doesn't cut it after youve played the first ME. Good luck little buddies, i really hope you guys get this on your console if not on pc because you guys really need to experience the awsomeness of ME.
You do realize that the main character IS female right?
Played Mass Effect on the PC (you know, the superior one without the horrible framerate) and didn't bother to finish it. Hey, I didn't like it. In fact, I don't like RPGs at all. Anyway, I'm sure everyone who rubs the game's exclusivity in PS3 owner's face won't even buy the game. Mostly because they aren't gamers. And they just like to make themselves feel better for trying so hard to justify their purchase.
Oh please, stop being a fanboy. PS3 exclusives sell as much as 360 exclusives, the only games that sell more then the rest is Halo and Gears. And if you're going to attack fanboys for not buying games that reach Halo numbers then attack 360 gamers for not buying Forza 3. What's funny is if you take out the beloved Halo and Gears, every other 360 exclusive sold less then the GT5 "demo".
well forza 3 sold 1.11 million so far and its been only out for a month so lots of people are buying it and supporting it
And that's great, great numbers for a great game. The thing is, some PS3 exclusives sell over a million copies in a month too or even 2-3 in their lifetime (Motorstorm, Resistance ect). The hardcore 360 fanboys will still call these a flop though 'cause they didn't do these numbers in 1 week. Then they can't admit that no other 360 game besides Gears and Halo do these numbers in their lifetime anyway and say "PS3 owners don't support their games". It just pisses me off...it's the same thing over and over... Sony: inFamous sold 1 million copies. Fanboy: FLOP, halo did this in an hour! Sony: Killzone 2/LBP sells two million copies. Fanboy: FLOP, Gears did this in a week! And people wonder why the PS3 fanboys are so aggresive lately, they've been taking all this crap for years. Don't be surprised next year when they call every 360 exclusive a flop for not doing Gran Turismo numbers.
1 million for InFamous already is good. The game is over-rated, it doesn't deserve 1 million sales. (It deserves 1 million, but not in 6 months.) 2 million for Killzone 2 isn't good because of all the hype for it. 2 million for LBP is a extremely good.
lmao, I'm sure you hope it remains OFF the PS3 because we all know you'll cry like a little girl if it becomes multiplat.
Like I said in the other article. It's DLC. EA and DLC rings harmoniously in the gaming world. They're like peanut butter and jelly. Or salt and pepper. Or T & A. Oh noes I'm becoming a naughty panda again.
With Mass Effect 1 running in standard definition, the technical hiccups were not nearly as bad as running it in 1080p, anyone else notice this?
mass efect coming for ps3 in 1 disc.. http://images.lazygamer.co....
Keep dreaming go play Demon souls Crap game good for u
Please Please Please stop trolling, I don't mean to be one myself but....your bad at it. seriously your really really bad at it. If your going to troll and flame people, at least do it correctly, for example Demons Souls is flocking amazing, you shouldn't throw that game out there as a counterexample to ME2's awesomeness, because their both equally awesome, sorta like saying that a Bugati Veron is better than a Lamborgini Diablo, its hard to compare them because they're both so awesome!
If they were to announce a new box art idea I have to admit I wouldn't be disappointed. The latest box art they seem to be going with is hideous. I'll be getting the CE version, but a game of this caliber deserves better than the sh!t they're going with.
ME goes multi-plat
The "surprise" is today right?
I don't think it will imo. I think it's going to be something about the game like DLC or returning characters. Oftentimes when a game developer hypes a "Huge" announcement, it's usually not that groundbreaking. That being said, I'm still excited to learn more about the game tommorrow.
Is the suprise?
As much as I would love Mass Effect on the PS3, Bioware probably wouldn't bring it if they didn't put the first one on as well (Mass Effect is an Episodic RPG) Its probably something like online Co-Op or something else....less satisfying. Whatever it is, some news is better than no news...unless its one of those damn opinion articles!
Well, turns out the surprise is a new revamped website. Good news for me. PS3 fanboys, keep holding your breath.
Is it really a SURPRISE when you already know about it...?
Hoax? It's like 3 PM EST.
Just kidding. That wouldn't be a surprise. We know 100% that it's happening. So in 2010, we'll have GoW3, FFXIII, Last Guardian, Heavy Rain, GT5 and GTA episodes with trophies, free online and a superior controller.
How much does Sony pay you? I hope it's a lot.. Working that hard as PR deserves some sort of pay.
So.....what is it?
It's not going to be something simple like a new website or box art, otherwise they wouldn't bother announcing that there's going to be an announcement. Also, if you remember from the original rumor posting, the poster stated that this was top-secret at Bioware so it's going to be something important. I'd say that the best guesses are that it'll be a Demo or going multi-plat. I personally have my fingers crossed for multi-plat, and that's the only reason why I'm following this story. The truth is, that unless there is an airtight exclusivity deal, I can't imagine that they won't be porting this game. Every time someone mentions anything about a rumor or announcement, PS fans go wild hoping that this game will come to their system, if they can't see that there's a market for this game on the PS3 then they're blind. Also, it takes thirty seconds to change a disc, sure, but that's also followed by loading; God forbid you have to do any backtracking. I think a lot of developers are going to start learning from naughty dog though and figure out that it's not a bad idea to have a small install that removes itself every time you exit the game. Most games with large installs are multiplats originally designed for the Xbox and that's because they have to basically install an xbox/pc emulator on the PS3 in order for the game to function, eventually that will end as more developers get up to speed with how the PS3 works. I imagine that first party devs will give tips to second party devs and second party devs will give tips to 3rd party devs until eventually the industry as a whole catches up with the system, which they haven't yet done. It took long enough for devs to even start using all of the PS3's resources, now that they are, it'll take them a while before they figure out how to use them most efficiently. On a different point, I see a lot of people go back and forth about whether or not N4G has more PS or Xbox fanboys, from what I can tell, there may be more PS fan boys, but the Xbox fan boys have far worse personalities. They're just plain rude. I'll admit, I only own a PS3, and owned a PS1 and 2 before that, but I'm not a fanboy because I don't hate Xbox. Halo 3 is my favorite FPS, hands down (even over KZ2 to this day, why? cause it's more loose and fun and I want to play 4p split screen at home with my buds), and obviously I fell in love with mass effect by playing at a friends place. There's nothing wrong with preferring one system over the other, but the success of one does not preclude the success of the other, and there's no reason to get upset because one system "stole" the other's exclusive. I think it's great the Xbox fans will get to play final fantasy, and I'll be so happy if I get a chance to play ME2 on my PS3. Xbox has been very important to the console gaming industry if only because Microsoft is a network company and so they know how to provide good network services, hence Xbox live changing the way we play with others online. I still prefer PS because sony, being a hardware company, has made a much more powerful system, but I thank MS for keeping Sony on their toes with the networking.
