No one likes getting a delayed version of a game. It’s like when a guy orders a hamburger after you but receives his order first just because you decided to add cheese to the order of your hamburger. Fortunately, that won’t be the case for Mass Effect 2 because it’s a videogame and not food. Associate producer Jesse Houston has confirmed to VG247 that the Q1 2010 release will be simultaneous across the Xbox 360 and PC.
“We learned a lot from building the PC version before, and having built it six months later there was a big difference. So we actually took what we learned from PC and put it back into 360,” said Houston. “Fundamentally, we want you to have the same gameplay experience, but just with the difference in controls. This time round, doing it at the same time for a sim-ship, we can control the differences much more smoothly because it’s the same team building it now.” Teamwork, my friends, teamwork.
