At GamesCom, EA announced that Mass Effect 2 is coming to Playstation 3, stating that it will release sometime in January 2011. Described by the developers to have “hours of bonus content,” the game is looking to give PS3 some extra content. But seeing how EA has “no plans” to release the first instalment, the ‘bonus’ content may just be a small prequel to ME2, that acts as a summary of the story for Playstation gamers that may have missed it back in 2007.
Mass Effect 2, the stellar RPG/Shooter from the award winning developer Bioware, was released for both the Xbox 360 and PC earlier this year. Garnishing more than 70+ perfect review scores, the game was truly missed on PS3.
“With both Mass Effect titles launching first on Xbox 360 combined with the wealth of available paid downloadable content on Xbox Live today, Xbox 360 remains the best place to experience the Mass Effect franchise,” a Microsoft representative said in a statement to IGN.
