Two years after Commander Shepard repelled invading Reapers bent on the destruction of organic life, a mysterious new enemy has emerged. On the fringes of known space, something is silently abducting entire human colonies. Now Shepard must work with Cerberus, a ruthless organization devoted to human survival at any cost, to stop the most terrifying threat mankind has ever faced.

To even attempt this perilous mission, Shepard must assemble the galaxy's most elite team and command the most powerful ship ever built. Even then, they say it would be suicide. Commander Shepard intends to prove them wrong.

sucks that it's just ME2.

Both on one disc would be awesome.

Beggers can't be choosers. PS3 just took the 360's highest rated exclusive away.

Microsofts ass.

Oh well, I got the first one on Steam for $5, but my PC can barely handle it. So once I get a new video card, play it on my PC, what's my motivation to move over to the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2? I've got my character and decisions over here... :/

They try to do a nice summary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th8PJUybhf4


But being honest ME2 is not very kind to people who didn't play the first one. Even though ME2 is the better game by far, and great for PS3 owners, not having the first is a dumb decision. Especially since by Jan 2011 ME2 will probably be retail $40 or lower, and ME $20. They should have combined them...

It's better on PC anyways. I played Mass Effect 2 on my PC, then I got it for the XBOX and I hated it. It didn't feel right, just isn't the same.

No, I totally didn't expect Mass Effect 2 to come to the PS3. I thought Mass Effect 2 would only stay on Xbox 360 and PC. Looks like I was proven wrong. BioWare, you liars!

On the PC, ME2 has already been $20 several times. Not to mention it looks AMAZING at 1920x1080 native with all settings turned up. Still... good news for the PS3 that we are getting another 360 "exclusive".

ME 1/2 are the best games I've ever played. Nothing comes close to the immersion in these games. Good for PS3 owners!

Yeah I didn't even realize. At the end of the video I posted it even says now $40. Whoops.


I wonder how much Bioware is charging...if it's going to be full $60, the added content better be nice.

I honestly don't know whether i should be excited about this release or not haha. My Microsoft friends always bragged about ME2, but i never heeded their attention lol.

I guess i'll check out some videos and such, but i wish a character i created in ME would carry on to ME2, but that won't be happening.

I am so in for this game. I was too hoping that we would get 1 and 2 on one disc but the second is better than none. January is going to be a hell of a month for me. Dead Space and Mass Effect 2! Sheesh!
