During Gamescom, Sony dropped a bomb (right) on the gaming industry by announcing that it has teamed up with BioWare and Electronic Arts to bring the Mass Effect franchise to the PlayStation 3. One of the main concerns about this announcement was that gamers would miss out on the decision making that accompanied the original title several years ago, but those concerns have been laid to rest through somewhat of an interactive novel.

Speaking with the Official PlayStation Magazine, Mass Effect 2’s producer, Jess Huston revealed the team’s goals for the title on the PlayStation 3.

“Oftentimes when you go to the PS3 you see stuff like down-ressing and using a smaller than 720p resolution to try and get back some of the framerate.

“We haven’t done that. We really wanted to try to make it as good, if not better than the Xbox version.”

Considering a year will have past since the original release of Mass Effect 2, PlayStation 3 owners should expect the title to play and look better than its 360 counterpart — especially since EA plans on charging the full $60 retail pricing for the product.

Mass Effect 2 release on the PlayStation 3 this January 2011.

  1. fresh news
    the ps3 wersion of mass effect will include most of the dlc that came out, in worth of 100 usd adding up to 20 aditional houres of gameplay, plus a me1 summary, all of the (sadly, many) patches released, and 3 years of gpu engine updates

    the ps3s software, as we all know has some performance capabilities locked, probably because sony dosent want to hawe the ps3 maxed out to soon
    so the gpu engine updates are a great addition, and from what ive seen show the biggest deweloper support (right after insomiac)

  2. Nice to see a developer handling a port properly. Hopefully they’ll follow through with their promise.

    Also, wasn’t it Gamescom where they announced ME2 for the PS3?
