In a surprise move, Bioware announced today that their Xbox 360 and PC hit Mass Effect 2 would be available on Playstation 3 in January. One of the main reasons this is a surprise is that the original Mass Effect was never released to the console. To assist those unable to access the first installment, Bioware has added “hours of bonus content” to the PS3 Blu-ray that will supposedly make it a “perfect entry point” for Mass Effect n00bs. Here’s hoping whatever they offer is a little more substantial that a group of cobbled together cut scenes.
Whether you’re a PS3 owner looking forward to playing the game or an Xbox obsessed fan-person upset about Bioware bringing the game to a new console, I invite you to express your opinions on this announcement in the comments.
