Mass Effect 2 On PS3 Is A Victory For All Gamers

SarcasticGamer: Fresh out of Gamescom in Cologne, Germany comes the news that Mass Effect 2, one of 2010’s highest-rated games ever (so far) is coming to the PlayStation 3 in January 2011. Fresh on the heels of that comes the occasional tweet from a disgruntled user or two who seem to begrudge giving the sci-fi series to other consoles. (Teehee Lono, only kidding.)

It ain't a victory for gamers who only own a 360 I can tell you that. I'd be pissed if I only owned a 360 and had to watch the reasons I bought an Xbox in the first place migrating over to the PS3 only a year later with the DLC in place at launch.

PS3 gamers should be very happy though. Another title to add to an already stacked library of games. I think the biggest problem might be figuring out when to pick this title up as it'll be launching around the same time as Killzone 3, SOCOM 4, Dead Space 2 and a host of other great titles.

I cant honestly say I know one person who solely bought a 360 just for Mass Effect, especially considering its on PC as well. However I think its great PS3 users get to enjoy at least Mass Effect 2 (having the first one would be even better though), that is the actual PS3 owners who are interested in the title and not just slap happy because Xbox "lost" it.

Personally I hate waiting for great games, so even though I bought ME2 for 360 and bought some DLC it doesn't bother me PS3 gets it a year later with the DLC, because I already got to enjoy the game and can't wait to see what Bioware does with Mass Effect 3.

I probably wont buy it again (even though there is bonus content) just because I'll probably still be playing LBP2 and waiting for Killzone 3, not to mention other holiday titles. I'm going to be set on games for awhile here in the next few months.

The only problem I have with ME2 coming to PS3, is if it will effect the release of ME3, as in ME3 getting delayed due to work on the PS3 version of ME2.

That doesn't make any sense? Why would someone who bought Mass Effect 2 on 360 care, they have the game as well? Unless you mean an illogical fanboy then yes, though they are all as stupid as each other.

But undeniably a loss for the Xbox 360.

Mass Effect was one of the few left defining "console exclusive" series that differentiated it from the Ps3.

bruddahmanmatt3108d ago

Don't kid yourselves. This past January it was all "haha you PS3 owners will never get your hands on Mass Effect 2, it's all rumors" from the Xbox fanboys and now it's become "haha, you may have gotten ME2, but you'll never get ME1". It's sad really. And it's not just the ME franchise I was referring to, it's everything. ME has gone multiplat, L4D may go multiplat, Riddick made his way to PS3, Star Ocean IV, Tales of Vesperia and Ninja Gaiden (Sigma) 2 all made their way to the PS3, Bungie divorced Microsoft, Splinter Cell: Conviction may make its way to the PS3 and so on and so on. I'd be pissed if I bought a 360 and it was the only console on my TV stand. What's the point of owning one when the majority of the games that were once exclusive to the console can now be played on the competition's platform? For folks who only own one console, they may as well have just bought a PS3. Yeah you'll miss out on Halo and Alan Wake, but everything else that used to be bragging rights for owning a 360 have gone down the toilet in recent months.

This past January? It was like that two days ago! LOL

Bigpappy3108d ago

They will make more money. It didn't sell on 360 as well as I thought a game of its quality would. M$ losses a great exclusive, but 360 gamers did't loose anything. The game will continue on the 360. Maybe 360 fanboys will loose something to brag about but if that is why they have a 360 then they need to make some more multi-plat. As long as Bioware keeps releasing their games on 360, and give us the same quality, I have no problem with them selling as many copies of their game as they can.

Blacktric3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 was the main reason for me to buy an Xbox 360 but I was a PS3 owner before that. I am using my 360 as my primary console to play multiplatform games and no, I am not pissed in any way. If you are a single console owner and only got a 360, then you should be happy to be played the game on your console a year before than others and you should also be happy for PS3 owners who finally get to play one of the greatest RPG games ever made. If you are pissed, than that means you simply are a butthurt immature fanboy. Nothing else.

StanLee3108d ago

Here's the thing I don't get about your argument; if you only own an XBox 360, you got to play the game didn't you? No one buys a console for 1 game and if you did, you're a idiot. You weigh a number of factors and if one game swayed you in one direction or the other, you should have held off until you were more comfortable with your purchase. I never get the big deal when exclusives go multiplatform. If you only own one console you get to play the game. I didn't buy a PS3 for just Uncharted and I didn't buy an XBox 360 simply for Halo 3 or a Wii for Mario Galaxy. Even if every game was on all 3, I would still own all 3 because each offers me something different and unique.

Today is a funny day on N4G. I enjoy ME2 articles.
ME2 deserve more sales. I say it better than ff13.

Syaz13108d ago

only fanboys would care. i only own an xbox 360, and i feel very happy that ps3 gamers can get their hands on an awesome game. soon you'll get a taste of bungie's product, and we get a taste of isomniac's stuff.

Ilikegames763108d ago

are a real gamer. But I hope you purchase a PS3 so that you could enjoy the vast library of games on it. +bubble

Syaz13108d ago

i want to, but that might just not happen. by the time i could obtain my own salary the ps4 would have been out :( college student budget ftw...

Beefstew4u3108d ago

Any owners of the 360 version know how hard/easy it is to get all of the trophies/achievements in the game?

SDV_v33108d ago

More time consuming than anything. The hardest one is beating the game on the hardest difficulty because some parts are just ridiculously hard. Other than that, there all cake.

andron3108d ago

Only delusional fanboys couldn't face the truth as usual.

Just like with Bioshock and GTAIV LC Episodes. They were to good earners to stay "exclusive" forever...

Over this one some 360 only crazies are gonna be slamming on the "Right Trigger" when it comes time to make choices of what they`re gonna say and do.

-MD-3108d ago

It's a great game. Impatiently waiting for the 3rd now.

2FootYard3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

Apparently its a bad game. Or maybe those who disagreed are waiting patiently for the third. I don't fucking know.

jarrod19813108d ago

honestly, why would anyone disagree with that.
