Publishing a game doesnt prevent it from going anywhere if the company doesnt own the IP. MS published Ninja Gaiden 2 on the 360 and Tecmo went right around and published it as Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 on the PS3. If MS were to have bought Bioware instead of EA, then things would be a different story
NGS2 came out around or less than a year on PS3 after it came out on 360.
Mass Effect has been out on 360 for almost 3 years now. Either MS had a stipulation in a contract with Bioware before it was bought by EA to keep it a 360 console exclusive or EA just doesn't want to put the time/money/effort in porting it to PS3.
I wish they would though. I played through that game at least 5 times. One of, if not, the greatest game I ever played.
