Mass Effect will be reaching over to the PS3.

STICKzophrenic3173d ago

Darn...I hoped to be the first to make a ME to PS3 reference.

:-(

IaMs123173d ago

If that it is even true, im sorry to say but that is way too far away... I mean most people would have already played it by then. if they are going to do ANYTHING Mass Effect related on PS3 it will be either 1. Port over both of them NOW, or 2. Wait for ME 3.

Read: " bringing "something far-reaching" for Mass Effect "

how do you bring something for mass effect by announcing it for another platform?

EA: We are here to announce we are bringing THE PS3 TO MASS EFFECT!! haha

I'm not saying the game is not coming to ps3 but you guys want this game so bad that your reading comprehensions disappears.

CRY MOAR!

ME2 PS3 one day i hopes =3 otherwise i have to get it for my MBP =( (not best quality)

Traveler3173d ago

Why don't people just play it on the 360 or PC? It is such a great game there is no way that I could wait that long to play it on my PS3.

Well at least you admit Mass Effect on PS3 is far reaching.

deadreckoning6663173d ago (Edited 3173d ago )

Even if Mass Effect does make it to the PS3 next year, 2011 will be a bit late. Don't think that many people will care about it even if it happened. I'll be playing Agent when it comes out :)

ActionBastard3173d ago

I'll have plenty of games to play on my PS3 already, so waiting for this to appear is no big deal. At all.

ryuzu3173d ago

It'll be coop - uncharted has it, GeOW has it, Resi 5 has it - all TPSs have it....

In fact, now I think of it, surely this should have had coop from day 1 to be on equal footing with the TPSs listed above....

It will be ME3 still exclusive to MS platforms Windows and 360 and will once again be denied for the PS3 just like ME and ME2.

The Maxx3173d ago

That's what I was thinking. ME3 will be released next year to finish the series. Shepperd will die saving the universe from a massive REAPER invasion on the citadel. It will be the most epic game of the series.

siliticx3173d ago

1. The first and 2nd will be released in a collection on 1 blu-ray on PS3.

2. The 3Rd will be a simultanous launch.

3. The "ultimate collection" will be coming with all 3 games.

ABizzel13173d ago

Mass Effect Reach aka Mass Effect 1 and 2 on a single Blu Ray for the PS3.

wpggamer3173d ago

All the PS3 fanboys said they were going to play the superior PC version anyways, so why do they keep saying it's going to PS3?

NoBias3173d ago

Could you imagine a 3 player co-op?

Cysquatch3173d ago (Edited 3173d ago )

Don't forget that MS hasn't owned the ME IP since 2007 when the EA/Bioware/Pandemic deal went down. EA owns the IP. And with EA in the mix is just a matter of when it comes to the PS3. EA can't ignore the success of Dragon Age on the PS3.

Just like the dude above said: Look for a blu-ray collectors edition w/ME and ME2 to launch next year and simultaneous multi-plat launch for ME3.

That's my first lewd comment. It's the last time I promise.

table3173d ago (Edited 3173d ago )

grasping at straws with that one...

lol you edited... and with good cause!

Gen0ne3173d ago

I had a moment of weakness. My inner 14 year old compelled me. I do regret...

maniacmayhem3173d ago

More than likely it'll probably be ME on PS3.

Or maybe a separate entry for the PS3 like MG:Rising for 360.

Lord Vader3173d ago (Edited 3173d ago )

Lol, you tools !!!

Buy a 360 or a freakin' PC or miss out the best game this GEN !!!

I aint gonna miss GOWIII or ME3 !!!

PS360 FTW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

maniacmayhem3172d ago (Edited 3172d ago )

Sorry Lord Vader but I have a 360, in fact I'm playing Mass Effect 2 right now.

I thought you Sith/Jedi were suppose to know this stuff.

Bnet3433173d ago

Their putting a lot of work into the SW:TOR. I doubt they make two MMOs.

kneon3173d ago (Edited 3173d ago )

I forgot about that. But if you've already got the server infrastructure and the code written then all you need to do is re-skin it and you've got mass effect, just don't forget to lose the light sabres :)

It's a lot less work than starting from scratch so it's still possible. Not that I care, they will probably want a monthly fee and I'm not paying for that, I'll never put enough time into it to make it worthwhile.

Mike134nl3172d ago

The only thing missing from the game is a good multiplayer or co-op that would be a nice addition to the game.

A new entry to the Mass effect universe like a MMORPG would also be interesting. Assuming they have the resources which they probably do now they are a part of EA.
A new entry to the mass effect universe could possibly come to the ps3, since the contract that Microsoft signed was only for the trilogy (not sure if it's a timed contract).

But since contracts are made to be broken it might as well be the announcement of mass effect for the ps3.

But not getting exited it might just as well be something disappointing as natal support.

Somnipotent3173d ago

orly EA? what is it... lemme guess..DLC!!! MORE DLC!!! piff... this DLC crazy gen has left me sour. you end up spending about $70-80 on a game as opposed the complete games you use to get for $50 last gen. now companies purposely hold back to charge you on the back-end. added-value it is not, it's just bending consumers over, that's all it is!!
