Bioware: Mass Effect 2 PS3 is the "best version"

Mass Effect 2

Jesse Houston, producer for the upcoming PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2, recently explained on the BioWare podcast why he believes it is the "best version of Mass Effect that we’ve released to date."

"Being that the PS3 is coming out over a year later, we wanted to make sure that we added a lot of benefit to the people who waited," he said.

"One of the first things you’re going to see is improved graphics. We actually created the engine for Mass Effect 3 and used that to make Mass Effect 2 PS3. So we took the content, the story and all the other assets that made up Mass Effect 2 and put it into the Mass Effect 3 engine. And that’s what we’re actually delivering."

In addition the PlayStation 3 version will include controls "geared towards the PS3 controller," the DLC previously released for the 360 version, and an interactive comic will be presented at the beginning of the game to fill players in on Mass Effect 1 and allow them to make the pivotal decisions that will shape their Mass Effect 2 playthrough.

Rather than focusing on any system wars it could be agreed that both PS3 and Xbox 360 owners being able to experience the Mass Effect universe is great news. Mass Effect 2 comes out for the PlayStation 3 on January 18, 2011.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
