'Mass Effect 2' Imported Data And 'New Game Plus' Options Get Clarified

In addressing the presence of a "New Game Plus" mode in "Mass Effect 2," BioWare has now confirmed that multiple playthroughs will be possible as they were in "Mass Effect."

Yeah this all sounds right. I would be very disappointed if you couldn't do a newgame+

Well, I guess, time to get back to work on Mass Effect. I wonder if you played as a guy in ME, you can import as a chick in ME2. Also, if you replay the game after beating it do you keep your stats? I wonder how that would affect the difficulty.

I left the collectors edition open on my laptops browser all time during christmas so that someone in my family would notice it and maybe buy me mass effect 2... sadly my kid brother opened his jib jab about the game not being available until january and I'll have to end up buying the game myself -.-
