With no confirmation whatsoever from Bioware, GAME, a major game retailer from Australia has a listing for Mass Effect 2 for the PlayStation 3. There’s been rumor that Mass Effect titles will be ported to the PlayStation 3 but up until now, no official confirmation. Whether or not this is true is truly up to Bioware if they ever decide to put it on the PlayStation 3. As of now, we will have this as a rumor.
Mass Effect 2 is slated to come out early next year for the XBOX 360 and PC early next year. Stay tuned for more developing news on Mass Effect 2!
[UPDATE] Russian EA Official Website shows that Mass Effect 2 will be indeed coming to the PlayStation 3 as well. We will contact Bioware on Monday to get confirmation but we’re expecting denials until then.
[UPDATE] According to EuroGamer’s recent conversation with EA, the listing for Mass Effect on the PS3 found on the Russian site is erroneous. Well that sucks… but why do they make these kind of mistakes… These mistakes will hopefully turn into a possibility.Rumor: Mass Effect 2 Bound to PS3,

Most likely a mistake. I hope I am wrong though.
hamiltonOctober 10, 2009 at 7:02 PM
I certainly hope you are, Tiagomnh, but honestly people don’t get your hopes up … its 99.99% a mistake
KillerOctober 10, 2009 at 7:15 PM
And why is it a mistake if may ask?
PS3 has also the richt for this game, not only the 360.
I have a PS3 and hope this is not an mistake, becouse i’m a gamer not a basher from both systems.
Look at Final Fantasy 13, is also comming to the 36-, great for the 360 users becouse we all gamers don’t you think ?

I agree with you Killer. Although i own both consoles anyway, I am very much neutral in those console war thingy. I play exclusive and multi plats on my 360 and then exlusives only on my ps3. I like it that way and it would be awesome if some of my friends who only have ps3s could play and enjoy mass effect like me.

well killer you have to have some exclusives for two reasons, 1 they are of a better quality than multi games(like uncharted 2-disk space, halo 3-live) and 2 it gives gamers a reason to own more than one system which is the competition needed in the industry.
anyway unless ms made a deal with bioware i dont see why not have it on ps3 so fingers crossed

It says TBC for publisher and developer..so it looks like a mistake cause if it was legit they would put them there considering we already know who is developing it and who is publishing it..but also its technically possible considering dragon age origins is on the ps3

Even if it does goes multiplatform i can guess almost everyone will get the PC or Xbox version considering 1 there is more xbox 360’s out there as of right now and obviously more PC’s out there then ps3’s and 2 the whole game saving from mass effect 1 can go into 2 so i would think they want to take advantage of that feature..like i will be even if there is a ps3 version..

I understand, but you have to know that Bioware is a EA company.
That’s means, that a 3 party developer is and not a first party developer ;)
Furter more, i’m a PS3 owner and i know that we speak about multi platform always perform better on the 360 system. The reason why the most multi platformen better handle with the 360, because the multie engine is develop on a X86 arcitecture and NOT!!! the Cell arcitecture!!!! That’s is the big differend.
But, i don’t want a flamebait debate. The 360 is nice console als the PS3, but the PS3 is the only console (if we speak about develop on multi engines) is the PS3 always disadvance than a 360. because multi platform devlopers alwaus choose the easy way and that is develop on the X86 arcitecture ;)
Thats why the most PS3 first party develops (Sony inhouse developers) has games what makes big differend between the 360 and the PS3.

and i just noticed this wouldnt they have to announced a ps3 port/version already considering it has a janarary 10th 2010 date ( the xbox and pc version isnt even dated) which also makes me doubt a ps3 launch. i hope there is a ps3 version cause this game is awesome and ultimately i dont think anybody should miss this game..cause really i dont think you should pay 300 dollars to play this awesome game (or pay for hundreds of upgrades for pc parts)

I agree, thats what i said (hope) it will come to the PS3 so that i enjoy the the game, other wise i will buy this game for the the Pc, yes i’m also an PC gamer :) just like an PS3 gamer. I hink it wil not come to the PS3, you just explaine that :)
But you have a good point, why buy this game if this game will better run on 360 or PC, but the another question is, if people buy a PS3 for this game, remember that those guys also alot of PS3 exclusive games to play and enjoy ;)
Luculey, i don’t need new PC parts, i have all ready a best of a PC ;)
This game will just awesome :)

i will most likely buy it for the xbox…but depending if they give some extra gear for the ps3 version if they do happen to make it i will buy it also :P i really do hope it goes on the ps3..giving it is EA i think they will at least explore the idea :)
nameOctober 11, 2009 at 2:43 AM
they have all 3 versions set as 10/1/2010.
also anyone remember EA had this listed coming to ps3 also on the EA website not so long ago?
coincidence? i dont think so.
but than game did have L4D listed as coming to ps3 and we all know how that ended up.
but im thinking this ones true, there has been to many websites listing it as coming to ps3, and theres been so much talk of it since announcement.
if it was one website ok but several, to much to be a coincidence or mistake.

As a xbox 360 Fan ( i still like the ps3..dont use it as much) hopes it does come out on the ps3 honestly who cares we xbox users will still enjoy the game but then now we will have millions more people who also enjoy the game with us all this console is better then the other is BS yes they are better then the other but it also is true vice versa for example the xbox 360 can arguably have the best lineup of games so far ( i think so personal preference anyways) and the ps3 also has an awesome lineup and 1 thats getting stronger with titles like uncharted 2 :P but the ps3 is a better media center..(xbox = horrible dvd player) plus its a blueray player. The ps3 deserves this game cause its awesome and if it does come out ..i still might buy a copy just to support it
stixkOctober 11, 2009 at 8:25 PM
aint gonna happen
sorry ps3 fans but its a mistake

Does this mean Mass Effect 2 won’t be exclusive to the white foreign devil console anymore
