oh god here comes the "mass effect on ps3?" articles , At this point I could care less. Borrowed it from my friend, It was good. But with so many other games I have to finish ( haven't cracked gow 3 open yet) I really have no time.
I think these countdown timers are stupid. The Metal Gear one from last year was stupid too. If Mass Effect comes to PS3, great. More money for Bioware and more people get to play a great game series. If this is about DLC, that's cool too. More content for some already great games. If it's about a brand new game, then I like that too. Just announce it already. Don't give us these timers. It's anticlimactic.
"More money for Bioware and more people get to play a great game series." Say that about a PS3 console exclusive game and you'll die on N4G xD
So your statement is mostly irrelevant. The majority of PS3 exclusives will never appear on another platform for this reason. That's not trolling, it's just fact.
I'm more interested in a new IP that they'll make. I've become such a Bioware fan. I have all their games right now except DA: Awakening.
after your 8 hours or so of GOW3 you can go back to 50+ hours of mass effect!
Why would PS3 only owners want ME3 without playing ME1 or 2? Doesn't make sense to me. If you want to play ME, just buy a 360.
And there is a real reason to be upset that a game goes multiplatform. Its gimped to be ran on the 360, content & quality wise. Which is why its a let down to know that you could have had a really award winning experience like Uncharted2's technology in a game, but instead you're stuck with the unreal engine or something lesser. If you want to play ME Just crack open that 5 year old computer with low requirements to run it in HD @ 60fps. Like all 360 exclusives.
after "8 hours" (10 to be realistic) of God of Wart 3...100 hours of ME2 will not compensate =P GOWIII effect, its been documented everything just looks...meh xD im joking, i'd love to get some ME on my PS3, but with comments like that, you know you are wrong =P
I disagree with games going multi. Its not a good thing. I always support multi console gens therefore if gamers want to get everything they must get every console. Thats the way it has been and thats the way it should always be. The day there is only one console gen is the day i will quit gaming.
...probably some more DLC. I'll bookmark this post though if I'm wrong.
They probably played it on PC. I played ME1 on 360 but played ME2 on PC.
I don't think we'll ever see a one console gen, so I trust you will be enjoying games until the end of your days. As good as exclusive games are for keeping things competitive, there are alot of folks who can only afford (or have time for) one console in their houses, and who will often miss out on a ton of great games because they're not on their console of choice. Mass Effect is probably my favourite new IP in the last few years, and I would hate to deny anyone the opportunity to play it for whatever reason. But I see what you're saying. If there was no exclusivity and you could get the same games on every console, there would be no point in having different consoles. I agree with you there.
how can a timer be an "anticlimax" when it's counting towards the climax? a lame announcement after the timer ends; that's an anticlimax! I hate these timer things! it's the same as hit whoring!
Haha, I knew someone was going to call me on that (I even thought about changing the wording but couldn't be bothered). In my defense, I did say a timer was anticlimactic, not that the timer itself was an anticlimax. So you could argue... Ah the hell with it. Timers are dumb. So are announcements about announcements.
but the other important factors in multi console gens is variety,quantity and quality. Having multi consoles would ensure that there would be more variety of games developed for specific console strength therefore increasing the chance of improving the gaming experrience as well as creating more games for everyone. Having a single console might discourage devs from developing games that will be in direct competition with games such as Mario,COD or GT on a single console. To me its really all about variety and quality.
its prob just more dlc...
your probably right im really sick of DLC. I rather them work on a full sequel then some spin off/side stories DLC.
Agreed, I think it will be the announcement of a pretty good sized expansion pack like Dragon Age got.
I'd love to see a full expansion for ME2.
Rockox...same here, even though it would be more expensive than traditional DLC, I love the ME universe and would love to see more of it.
It's the DLC.
Yep, it sounds like that's all it is!
What DLC though?
It's on 4 BioWare sites. BioWare's main site, BioWare's Social Network Site, the Mass Effect site and the Dragon Age site. Basically every BioWare site except The Old Republic.
it's simple it's a Mass Effect / Dragon Age crossover event, kind of like what Hanna Barbara did with the Flintstones and the Jetsons.
I would hope for SWTOR beta, but that may be too much. Maybe a trailer for a new dragon age or mass effect game? Or maybe they are working on something else. I'm exited.
OOOOOOHHHHHHH, another countdown timer! I really hate those stupid things. When did this become the new cool thing to do anyway?
Since it got people talking on internet gaming sites about what the countdown timer is for I suppose, thereby creating interest in something they want you to be interested in. It doesn't take too much brain power to understand really.
xbox360 exclusive you've heard it from me FIRST..........if i'm right everyone has to give me bubbles i can't do anything with 1 bubble.
What exclusives have they done for 360? And no, you are not getting a bubble from me!
N4G MOD/BOTS .........................Do you see something wrong here ?????? LMAO .......I have to love you for that gr8 1 . Can you show me how to stack bubbles like that . I've been stuck on one bubbles since 2007 . LMAOOOOOOO
You really can't figure it out? Give it time, you'll see your answer.
It is curious how it's on all the major bioware game websites except The Old Republic.....just seems odd to me. I guess we will find out in 5 days
Just checked the Bioware website, under games, they have an entry called "New next gen game" i think this might be it.
Bubble an agree to you for being a good detective.....although if this turns out be a hoaz, i'm taking them back for pointing it out and getting me excited. I'm excited for any Bioware game old, current or new and I wouldn't mind Jade Empire 2 at all (direct to outgoingsquall)
They've had "new next gen game" up for years though. That's been there since at least 2007.
So it IS A PS3 game !!!!
@ Tony P And i think, now is the time they will reveal what this next gen game is. Bioware don't put stuff like that on their website by mistake.
The whole point is, it's inherently meaningless. BioWare are constantly working on new titles. It doesn't have to point to anything specific. It's probably just a placeholder. I would be surprised if it's ever revealed as a specific game.
Jade empire 2
Man, 2 countdown timers. (This and that water game). I doubt anyone's gonna be watching it when it reaches 0.
because i just clocked in my first play trough at 11 hours. on topic: i would love to see ME2 on my ps3! but i think this is something else.
count down to the announcment of the PS3 version :)
For ages the dwarves have carved out an existance, in this, the fabled Mount Dwarven Lodestone Cashcow. Now, they can carve out your wallet, and you too can mix it up with the bearded dwarven ladies deep inside Mount DLC.
it will only end up being for the 360 bioware hasnt made any ps3 game besides dragon age anythink else has been on the 360. Thou i be very suprised if the announcement was for the ps3
Well Bioware is doing the KOTOR MMO. It's probably about that.
Announcement for Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 on one Blu-ray disc for Holiday 2010?
Forget any exclusive deals from Bioware in the future. EA are cash strapped and they would never allow it, particularly a 360 exclusive deal again. Sorry guys but the 360 is history. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the Mass Effect Collection for PS3.
A dragon age: awakening size expansion for Mass effect 2 would be brilliant!
when all their games self destruct. weither it be in the case or in your system. XD
Maybe its DLC for the 360/PC or ME1 and 2 on the PS3? I'm hoping for the latter as I've heard alot of good things about the series. I played ME2 very briefly and I liked what I saw, hopefully I'll be able to play more on the PS3...only time will tell...
