Mass Effect 2 PS3 bonus content explained, ME3 on the platform ‘a good guess’

Gamescom is in full motion and one of the bigger announcements was the one made by BioWare when they let a short yet effective teaser tell the rest of the world that their award-winning franchise Mass Effect would be coming to Sony’s PlayStation 3 in January next year. Although, that would be half the truth…

Mass Effect, the first game, will not see a release on PS3. We’re not saying ever, but yeah, ever. Due to this, BioWare has decided to add bonus features bundled with Mass Effect 2 that will indeed release its astronomical glory to PS3. Although vague about it, BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka has let loose a few details.

“One of the things we’re doing is that we’re bringing a lot of the post-release downloadable content and will integrate it into the experience, so that PS3 fans can check that out and play it,” said Muzyka. “We’re making sure there’s a really seamless introduction to the world of Mass Effect, for players that haven’t experienced it before, so even though it’s Mass Effect 2 specifically, we’re making sure there’s a nice introduction experience, that provides the back-story and the things that have happened up to that point in the universe, and makes it a really seamless introduction.”

He wouldn’t give any specifics, but they never do so we’re not sweating it. However, he did throw out the possibility of Mass Effect 3 coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, saying it would be a “good guess.”

“That’d be a good guess, but we haven’t announced any details on any future formats or anything, or even formally announced Mass Effect 3 yet, although there’s a natural assumption that there will be a Mass Effect 3 as it’s a trilogy. We’ve said that and more or less confirmed it, but we haven’t announced any details on the product yet, or the platforms,” explained Muzyka.
