Wait New Game Plus Is in Mass Effect 2?

Kotaku writes: Although a Mass Effect 2 designer said back in June there would be "no new game plus" - a second playthrough with abilities and items earned from the first - BioWare's community coordinator has said rather definitively there will be.

On Thursday, BioWare's Chris Priestly wrote the following:

"If players start a New Game + after beating the game they will be able to re-use the same character import file they did for their first playthrough. Yes New Game + is making a return to Mass Effect 2".

The story is too old to be commented.

Can I just enter my name as "ZELDA" and play through the second quest right from the start?

This feature should be standard in every game.

Agreed, New Game+ makes you play the game again, just like games like Blue Dragon, Tales of Vesperia, and even non-RPGs like Dead Space.

Nothing MOTIVATES me to play a 2nd time more than building on a New Game + character. Power is never enough!

but I dont have my mass effect 1 save anymore. This makes me want to get a cheap copy of ME1 and play it real quick.

I still hope it isn't relying on the last playthrough you done.

For me my first one, about 20 hours long, I explored/discovered/done everything and everywhere.
For my most recent it was to do insanity on just a speedrun.

Think that would suck.

Every time you complete the game it creates a separate complete save which isn't overwritten by a subsequent playthrough. Now from what I've gathered out of interviews I am under the impression Mass Effect 2 will give you a list of all of these complete playthroughs and let you choose which to import.

You sure?
I've done 3 characters, each one has a couple of playthroughs, but I've not seen seperate saves, only saying how many playthroughs on that character I've done.
