EA Russia website shows Mass Effect 2 for PS3 [Update]

Monday, 12th October 2009 00:47 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Mass Effect 2

Update: BioWare’s given this one the “no comment” treatment over on its forums. “We don’t comment on rumors. :-)” is the official word-emoticon combo. But hey, at least it’s not a “no.”

Update 2: The listing on the Russian EA website has now gone, but the Game page is still there.

Update 3: EA insist both listings for Mass Effect 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 were posted in “error“.

Original Story: Either this is a massive oops or something more.

The Russian website for EA has Mass Effect 2 pegged for a release on the PlayStation 3, as well as 360 and PC.

However, EA Russia isn’t the only act involved: Game Australia also have the game down for a PS3 release next year. Previously, it was only for Xbox 360 and PC.

BioWare has however refused to confirm or deny before if there would be a PS3 version of the sequel.

We’ll contact EA about this, and see if this is just an honest mistake or more.

Thanks, RPGSite.

    I’d like this to be true, save me getting another 360.

    That’s not the first time that EA seems to have a couple of problems with their Russian side of business. Need for Speed ProStreet was officially announced during May of 2007. Of course, their Russian distributor had revealed the game’s title 3 months before that. Along with that revelation were news about the rest of the company’s lineup for that year.

    I’ll go with true, for this one. Just for the sheer irony.

    He who laughs last laughs the hardest….remember that Morruis? I hope this is true (most likely) and I hope part one is coming to PS3 too. 360 is losing all there exclusives!
    Sound familiar XBOTS (2006) :D

    Their is no such thing as “exclusive.” Only who gets the game first and if it does well, let’s have as many systems to play it on, because this means more money for us.

    Which is great for business and consumers (US) :D

    ***ATTENTION! ATTENTION!***
    Preparation phase for buying another XBOX 360 now ON HOLD.
    Further instruction as we receive them.

    PS: May this rumor save me $10s of precious dollars.

    Having read this, I checked out the game vids on Gametrailers (gameplay cam vid). Cool weapons and nice graphics, although I can see myself getting bored with it’s duck ‘n cover, shoot, move. Duck ‘n cover, shoot, move etc gameplay or is there more to it?

    Updated again.

    EA’s removed the listings of L4D2 and ME2 for PS3 from the website. But the Game Austraila page still shows ME2 for PS3.

    @Redh3lix. Well thats the formula Mass Effect 1 followed, but what action games don’t nowadays? The main draw was the rpg elements, building up various characters and experimenting with team set ups. Its 1 flaw was some repetitive side missions and samey loctions.
    On the whole tho, it was a quality title with a good solid story that was all the better for its lack of lady boys and emo whining …gives ff the finger…
    No doubt Bioware have tinkered with the formula and i hope Mass Effect will be something special on both formats.
