Mass Effect 2 on PS3 Nixed: Or How MS Stole Back Exclusivity
What?? Hold on. Mass Effect 2 is back to being a PC and Xbox 360 exclusive?
For one brief moment it was a multiplatform game. Cough and the next second it's back to being an Xbox 360 exclusive, despite previous reports it would appear on the PS3. Sony fans weep at the thought of what might have been.
Jay Watamaniuk, Bioware's Community Manager set the record straight:
There is a report circulating today based on an appearance I made in Poland yesterday. Seems there was a misunderstanding about ME2 coming to PS3.
Let me clarify today: ME2 is coming to PC and X360 only. Look for them both on Jan 26 in NA and Jan 29 in Europe.
Sorry for the confusion.
Yep, sorry for playing with your heartstrings and giving you false hope.
It must have been a late night delivery at the Bioware offices. A courier from M$ dropped off this inconspicuous money bag, so I guess we'll lock away the PS3 version, the one that supposedly doesn't exist, for a rainy day.
It's funny how Electronic Arts posted the PS3 version on their Russian website and it appeared again on an Australian retailer's website. Oh wait, EA said those listings were "errors" and were immediately corrected. Hahaha. Funny, EA -- always with the jokes.
We now leave it to conspiracy nuts to debate the real reason for pulling out PS3 support.
