We learned a few days back that Mass Effect 2 was coming to the Sony PS3, and although PlayStation 3 owners were happy, it seems to have raised more questions than answers. The biggest question asked was why the original game was not coming to Sony’s game console?
Errol Burke-Horner from BITMOB thought that this deserved a closer look, as he had first thought that it was all to do with Microsoft being the publisher of the first Mass Effect game. However, it seems that there is more to this than he thought.
One reason could be that the first game was not as good as had been led to believe, finding that he grew impatience with it within the first 60 minutes. Maybe this could be the reason why Sony decided to go directly to Mass Effect 2 instead?
It is not all rosy for PS3 owners though; porting a character from Xbox is always going to have its issues, so the developer will need to offer a few incentives to keep things fresh. Two things that Burke-Horner suggests are free DLC or exclusive content. What would you like to see from Mass Effect 2 on the PS3? According to Alan Ng, Bioware boss confirmed that downloadable content will be coming, but we are uncertain if this will be free.
